So, instead I turn my focus on what I have to be grateful for.
1--God's magnificent, abounding, endless, undeserved grace. I am owed nothing.
2--The opportunity to live in a country where I am allowed to freely worship my Lord and Savior
3--My Hubs. I am grateful for a man who is not afraid to work hard. A man who is slow to anger. A man who bends over backwards for me again and again. A man who has kept an unbelievably positive attitude despite many, many hardships the last few years.
4--My children who make me smile and laugh and slow down to appreciate all the wonderful parts of life.
5--My parents and their friendship, wisdom, and advice.
6--My sister and her husband who have been my backups in so many ways this last year.
7--In-laws whom I respect and love dearly.
8--My family's health.
9--The opportunity to work at a job that I enjoy.
10--A church that isn't afraid to boldly preach the Word.
11--My small group.
12--The opportunity to send my children to a high quality school.
13--The opportunity to live in a safe neighborhood.
14--A job with excellent benefits.
15--Comments of thankfulness and gratitude from dozens and dozens of former students.
17--A reliable car to drive.
18--The ability to see my extended family often.
20--Food in my freezer, refrigerator, and pantry.
21--A washer and dryer in my home.
23--The ability to continually pay for the four walls.
24--The opportunity to pay off two HUGE debts this last year and now keep the snowball rolling toward some smaller debts.
25--The opportunity to move closer to my parents and sister.
28--The opportunity to begin a new, fresh chapter.
29--Struggle and hardship for it truly does refine me.
