Heart Full of Thankfulness!

Today was not as gorgeous or as nice as yesterday, but I am thankful I was able to get so much done yesterday as we did.

Sore from all the hardwork yesterday, but thankful I am able to feel the muscles in my body and move around where I want to independently.

Spent all day inside, but thankful I was able to clean up some things that were bugging me {I really need to get organized}.

My kids were loud, fighting, wanting attention, but thankful that my ears could hear them, thankful I could see them, thankful I could hold them, and thankful I have them.

My husband frustrated/irritated me, but thankful I have a wonderful husband that is willing to say "I'm sorry" and willing to help out with and without asking. I do love you honey with all my heart.

Didn't get my kitchen cleaned, but thankful a dear friend brought me an apple fritter and she drank coffee and I had a diet pepsi just enjoying an hour together this morning.

Even if the things we bring to the LORD are not going our way, we still need to be Thankful for the many blessings we do have in our lifes.... there is always a brighter way to look at your hour, day, week, month and year. Remember to give PRAISE to the LORD don't just petition for your wants, needs and desires..... remember your friends that are griefing, stressed over lifes issues, who don't have a healthy child, or a healthy body. Don't sweat the small stuff---- that stuff will still be there at the end of the day.
My Heart is full of Thankfulness today, I hope yours is too.


  1. So True...Some good advice, Jodi...Thanks!

  2. Way to go! Thanks for the reminder to look at all of the GOOD stuff to be thankful for instead of all of the yucky stuff that could irritate us. I needed a swift kick in the patoot earlier this week :)

    ps HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! I had the funniest card ready on fb to send you ... but it wouldn't let me because it was after your birthday. Hope it was a good one!
