I have decided to focus on gratitude this November, and joined up with Brenda and her "2011 Gratitude Challenge". I will post something I am grateful for daily for the days of November. Now, I may not post every day, but if I miss a day, I will post for that day another day. Like today, I was out of town for 22hours yesterday so I am posting both days today. Feel free to join up on the challenge too.
I am grateful for my relationship with God. I am grateful he sent his son to die on a cross to atone for my sins. I am grateful that he loves me regardless. I am grateful that he sent me his word, so that I would have a guide by which to live my life. I am grateful that I know him and have a relationship with him.
I am grateful for my marriage to a great man. I am grateful that he works so hard to provide for us, and that he feels the conviction that my place is in the home, taking care of both our home and our children. I am especially grateful for spending the whole day with him yesterday, alone...we had a great time and it was a special day, even though we just did a lot of driving and doctor appointments. It reminded us of how important it was to spend time together, away from our children. I pray this means more "date nights" for us. :)
