Counting

February 6th, 2012 by momngabe
Warm sunshine on a winter day in February.

Hot running water and good smelling soap.

A table laden with delicious snacks for Superbowl Sunday.

Health.  My own, my kids', my husband's.

A house that we have made a home.  A home where our children and their friends love to hang out.

A solid marriage.

One more month until I am finished with school.

More good friends than a girl could ask for.

Sisters.  Amazing, smart, talented and loving sisters.

A challenging job that pays well and still allows me to be what I most want to be:  a mom.

The internet.  The connections that it allows, between friends and family and even complete strangers who become friends.  Love that.

Some days are easier than others to count your blessings.  Today was an easy day...I could probably add another hundred things that I am thankful for.  I want to save this list for those hard days, when what I don't have tries to beat down what I do have while in an ungrateful state of mind.  (Luckily, those days don't come very often.)

What are you most thankful for today?  What do you do when those ungrateful days come along?  Does sunshine in February make you smile?
