2010 Gratitude Challenge ~ Day 30

On this last day of November, I am thankful for many things that I didn't mention in this month of gratitude.   I was lying in bed last night thinking of them as I drifted off to sleep.

I am thankful for:

  • my opportunity to be on the Homeschool Crew

  • my cozy warm home with all its family history

  • Christmas carols which always bring warm fuzzies and make the season special to me

  • modern conveniences that make my life easier, especially when it comes to laundry

  • God's glorious and beautiful creation

  • really good chocolate

  • my salvation

  • God's faithfulness

  • moments of peace and quiet in the daily hubbub

  • children that love each other, even if they don't want to admit it

  • each new word that my 2 year old says now that he's finally decided talking isn't so bad after all

  • people who take the time to comment on my blog

  • family traditions

  • wood floors even if they do need refinished and they let more garbage get trapped under the couch than our carpet ever did

  • the new laptop we ordered that will enable my kids to use their educational software (and the fun ones) again

  • good health

  • cars that bring family together for the holidays

  • love of family and friends that overcomes any differences

There are so many more things I could list.  I know that I am incredibly blessed by God, and I am thankful.   I know that nothing exists without God, and all the blessings in my life (no matter how mundane) are from Him.

  1. That's a great list. Thank you for all of your gratitude posts, I've enjoyed them!

  2. That is a great list. I didn't get to all that I wanted to either and on some days, what I was thinking to post got interrupted by something else to post instead.


I love to hear from you. Thanks for your comment!
