for the toys thrown about the entire downstairs. because they mean i have a precious child.
for the rain outside. because it means i get to stay inside our cozy home ALL day long.
for all the drama at work. because it means i have a job.
for my to do list. because it means i am able to complete a list.
for the smudges on my glasses. because at least i can see them.
for the two loads of laundry i need to fold and the three loads that are waiting to be done. because they mean we have clothes on our backs, towels to dry with, and sheets to lay under.
I am in the midst of reading One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.
(Scroll down to see a trailer for the book. I have watched it at least five times.)
To say that it is an amazing book is an understatement.
It is fabulous.
Its about being thankful.
And seeing God in everything.
Because these days are microscopic, fleeting moments.
And we have to learn how to stay fully awake! (Ann's words)
Also, this month marks the FOUR year anniversary of my blog.
I wrote my first post on February 10, 2007.
I like to say I blogged before blogging was cool!
So to celebrate I am going to do my first ever giveaway!
I am giving a copy of One Thousand Gifts.
All you need to do to enter is:
1. Become a follower, if you aren't already (over there on the right) and
2. Leave me a comment on what you are thankful for today!
I will have Rowan draw a name for me on Friday before his naptime!
