I way too often take for granted the blessings my children bring me. Yes, I get caught up in the day to day messes and discipline, sibling rivalry and constant demands required of having 5 children. And sometimes I have a hard time looking past all the challenges to find the gratitude.
So, in light of the mess, I find the joy:
4. hugs, kisses, & cuddles
5. smiles & I love you's
6. overall, well-behaved children
7. forgiving children
During the weekend, we removed everything from our living room and painted our white walls a whispering wheat. We removed several pieces of furniture to open up the room. I am thankful for:
8. the funds to personalize our home
9. The warmth colored walls brings to the room
10. The peace that comes from less [stuff]
Join us in giving gratitude?
