Thankful Thursday (2-22)

If I’m honest, I completely forgot last week. I had my days mixed up and by the time I realized it was Thursday, I was already in bed ready to sleep. I apologize.

This week is going to be slightly different. In my gratitude journey, I am currently working on getting back to the basics. While there are a lot of fun things for which I am thankful – especially these last two weeks, I want to go a little deeper as a reminder to myself how richly blessed I really am.

I’m thankful for eyes that can see.

I’m thankful for a mind that can read.

I’m thankful for a savior who loves me enough to keep loving me. Even in my doubting and wandering and selfishness, he continues to knock.

Today, I am thankful for being abundantly blessed beyond my wildest desires. In thanking Jesus for the blessings of new restaurants and staying home with Brooklyn and a new tv show & yada yada…I often take for granted the small things which are actually big things.

I’ve been blessed with another day to live and breathe and love. Thank you, Jesus.

I’ve been blessed with family to hug. Thank you, Jesus.
