365 Gratitude Project: Week1

Wake up every day with at least 1 thing that makes you grateful you are alive, who you are, and exactly where you are– that was the mission.

Week 1

¬† My Family. They are everything in this world to me. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to have no family. I should spend more time every day (especially when they¬† make me nuts!) thanking God that I have them.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Scripture, Quiet Time w/ God, and a Journal. This is where my strength and honesty come from. Starting or ending a day this way is what makes it possible to keep going.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Fresh Ground Coffee from whole beans every morning. Um, really, need I say more?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Perfect Bedside Setup. Nighttime is my husband and I’s quiet time together. We turn on our lamp and in the soft glow we can talk about our day and read our Bibles.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Crockpots. The working mothers prized possession. If my house was on fire (and the kid made it out already), the crockpot would be the only thing I grab! Organic chili is pretty amazing, too.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Old-fashioned stationery sets for good ol “snail mail”. Nothing says “I care” like a mailed, handwritten letter instead of a quickly typed email that a monkey could do in a split second with very little genuine thought or care.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Surprise Love Notes For No Reason! My son slipped this in next to my breakfast. That made my WHOLE day. He is such a blessing to me!
