always something there to remind me

There is always something there to remind me.

Every day,
something reminds me of how much
I have to be thankful for.

Thank-full.
Full of thanks.

Most of us have moments we might otherwise pass by, and never notice the gift we were given in that very moment.

Friday I decided to juice fast until lunch for a few days.

Food- the simple chicken, snap peas and carrots- never tasted so good as it did when I got hungry.

Saturday, my kids and I had to walk somewhere unexpectedly due to a change in Hubby’s work day. One vehicle going in the opposite direction= 3 walkers. As a result, we saw a plant none of us have never seen before, and had some great conversations as we walked together- which we would have likely missed in a quick car ride.
We also amped up our walking for the day, and are thankful to be able to walk.

Today, I got a few compliments on how nice my children are. They are my best gifts yet, after my hubby, that God has chosen to bless me with.

I got to use my voice as part of a worship team this morning. I am so thankful to be able to sing for His joy and glory every day.

The weather today was just right for an outdoor BBQ this afternoon, having cooled perfectly for sitting outside by my garden and reading tonight.

Simple pleasures maybe to you.

Gifts I am thankful for
thank-full for as I count them
every day.

There is always, always, something to be thankful for.

Count your blessings
list the gifts
you have seen, received
each day.

Training ourselves to daily notice all we have to be thankful can help you through the harder days by reminding you He is the giver of all good things.

He even gave His son to show me just how much He loves me.

The best gift yet to be thankful for
because it will live on
in my heart
for all eternity!
