The Gratitude Attitude - 9/14/08

Today I am thankful for....

1. New exercise beginnings
2. My 1st and 2nd counselors
3. Quiet time
4. The Spirit
5. My thoughtful husband
6. Sibling love
7. Family phone calls
8. Validating conversation
9. Pain relief
10. My book-loving boys

Today was a rough day, but even so I managed to recognize at least 10 blessings. Imagine the wealth of gratitude a good day must elicit!

*By the way, I am still reading all of your blogs...religiously. I just haven't the time to comment on each and every one of them anymore. This kills me as you all know I have a lot to say. Photography is picking up (hooray!) and I spend most of my spare time processing clients' photos. I hope you understand and will still drop by to see what's going on in our neck of the woods every now and then! A big squeeze from me to you. Blog on!

Don't worry about commenting Liz, I still read your blog all the time but am afraid I rarely comment. Don't know why not. But know that we are checking in ;)!!

New exercise beginnings: Oh how I love this one. I've been bad all week though, not exercising once. I feel like I can't eat what I want unless I do. I seriously exercise just for the food.
Glad you love your counselers.
Quiet time is Crystals naptime, other than that, it don't exist in my home.
The Spirit...amen. Something we pray for every night in family prayer.
thoughtful husbands...aww, so cute.
Sibling love...me too.
Family phone calls: I can imagine
Validating conversation...yes, I agree...I crave that one being alone with two kids all day.
Pain relief...Tylenol is by best friend.
book-loving boys...Fun! Crystal loves books too.
