But then the inevitable happens. The blasted alarm clock goes off. Beep. Beep. Beep.
Sure, you can avoid reality for a bit, but the beep beep eventually comes back. So you turn off the alarm, get out of your warm comfy bed and welcome reality.
Today, I am declaring it ‘Thankfulness Day!’
I got up a ½ hour earlier than usual, brewed a fresh pot of my fave blueberry coffee, ate a mouth watering gluten free scone (OK, who am I fooling…two) and sat in my PJs. Being thankful.
I wrote out my thankfulness day list.
A comfy bed
Blueberry coffee and warm scones
Ears to hear the beating of my husband’s heart
My tender-hearted husband
God’s mercy and grace
Abundant grace that showers me every moment of the day
Birds that greet me at the window sill each morning
Flowers that fill my eyes with brilliant pops of color
Brilliant sunshine and billowy clouds spotted at the window by our coffee pot
People that pull the beans in the fields to make coffee
Cups to hold the coffee
Airplanes that fly the beans over to the factories that bag the beans
Ok, I'm getting off track. But you get the picture.
My thankfulness cup is overflowing today.
It’s going to be a very good day. Because it's all about perspective. And a thankful heart, even in the midst of our storms.
Spend some quality time counting your blessings today.
