It is that time again when I pause and give thanks for all the blessings in my life. What about you? Do you make a conscious decision to give thanks or just remember to do it occasionally?
Today I am thankful that I woke up to birds singing outside and blue skies. I am thankful for this season of life and all it holds for us. I am thankful for every day and for a wonderful hubby and family. I am thankful for full days. Yesterday I had a great hair appointment and instead of going on a bike ride, hubby and I started working on the areas in the backyard where we are putting flagstone and rocks. Let me tell you that while we were working-I was weeding, my back was so tired! However, after having dealt with a bad back for several years, I'm thankful I can do this. In the evening, I went over to our youngest girl's house to hang out. I am so thankful for all our grands and for our incredible daughters! I will tell you that I was so achy last night, during the night, that I wasn't sure how I'd feel today-but I feel great. In fact, I've got to get ready to meet a friend to walk first thing this morning. The day will be filled~lunch with ladies from church to say farewell to a gal moving to Texas, babysitting grands this afternoon while hubby picks up the two new tables for the guest room.
I pray you have a day filled with smiles and giggles, contentment and peace.
