grateful for it! Welcome to the first Grateful Heart Friday of 2011!
I’m not much of one to make resolutions for the New Year. But I do like to sit down and cast some vision and lay out some goals for myself. One thing that has been impressed up on heart is to smile more, seek out the good and praise it, and be positive. Grateful Heart Fridays are helping me do just that! Here we go:
I’m grateful for a fun husband that is a great cook – made some awesome gumbo on New Years Day! I’m thankful that school started up again and put us back in a routine. I’m grateful that Christmas is tucked nicely away for 12 months and our home can return to normal (at least until I pull out the Valentine’s Day decorations!!) I’m grateful for my dear friend Hillary, the lovely play date we had together where we actually got in some good conversation while the children played, and the amazing lunch she made us (check out What’s For Dinner? in the right hand column)! I’m thankful for fun times alone with my little boy while the girls are at school. I’m grateful for my treasured friend Stacy and the great time we had at her place yesterday enjoying amazing food, fun activities and lots of giggles. I’m so blessed by all the friends in my life! I’m grateful that it is Friday and Sunday is a comin’(because I'll have a girlie afternoon away with the ladies!) And I’m SUPER grateful that NO ONE WOKE ME UP LAST NIGHT!!! I got to sleep from 9:30pm-5am and I’m more than thrilled!!! Most of all I’m thankful for a God of second chances and that He makes all things new in us!
Now it’s your turn – take a few moments to reflect on all the blessings from this past week and cultivate your grateful heart!
