Weekly Gratitudes

What a week-sick kids, dead car battery, massive juice spills, and some terribly cold weather.  I’m feeling the need to have a break, or maybe just run away. 
But in the midst of that I’m reminded that gratitude is all about the right perspective.  When we focus on the positive things the yucky things seem a little less yucky.
So today I’m grateful for the fact that all of us are healthy, I’m grateful for the sun shining (at least right at this moment), I’m grateful for a new week and a fresh start. 
And I’m grateful from some eye candy to distract me from the massive amount of things to be disinfected and cleaned.

What are you grateful for today?

  3. Today I'm grateful for the new sideboard we got off of Craigslist that fits in our kitchen perfectly. God's blessings are in some of the most unexpected places, glad to hear your family is on the mend.

    BTW, I hope you don't mind but I awarded you with the "versatille blogger" award!
