This is my simple way to ensure I am remembering simple and small or complicated and big things from my week or day or month and saying thank you. It is hard to worry and stress about the things going wrong or going without when you are focusing on being thankful for the blessings you DO have! So without further ado...
Letting me be a mommy. I know that sometimes I complain and whine and lose my temper. But really this being a mommy thing is a pretty awesome gig! I enjoy it more than I ever really let on to. It is difficult sometimes. Oh man the hardest job you have ever entrusted me with ever in my WHOLE life but thank you...
Thank you for trusting me with those sweet
Thank you for their rambunctious spirits. Help me to remember that their energy is your answer to my waistline prayers and issues and to get up and move with them and not say in a minute.
Thank you for their learning attitudes. Help me to remember they aren't big and that a question "why?" is a quest and a thirst for knowledge and remind me how often I question things myself.
Thank you for their sweetness and love. Help me to remember that when Leanna calls me into her bedroom for the 15th time at bedtime just to say "Love you Mom" not to be irritated and tired but to climb in bed for that extra snuggle.
Thank you for their stubbornness. Help me to remember that when Hudson is determined to do something on his own that it IS okay to be 10 minutes late to work or church or wherever to see that look of accomplishment on his face when he completes his task.
Thank you God for allowing me this job of greatness called Mommy, mother, momma, mom. Let me guard it with a fierce heart and a kindness
Join me this week in telling what you are truly thankful for.
