Thank you so much for visiting my blog. This is a story about 1 girl and her journey to make herself and her family healthy spiritually, mentally and physically. Throughout my journey I have successes and "learning opportunities". I share them all here - the good, the bad and the ugly. As I grow and learn, I will share it here.

I Am Thankful

I have seen many posts on facebook about what they are thankful for. I love this thought - but wished people would do it everyday.  When we focus on what we are thankful for - our brains are not as focused on what we are not thankful for.  We live in a world full of gripers, complainers and so many people who want to blame everyone instead of taking responsibility for the problems in their lives.  I have to admit that I am guilty of it also.  However, I really try to search for the positive in every situation - even if it is an opportunity for improvement in my life - even if the situation is hard. 

This post is going to be ongoing - I plan to update it regularly.  This is just what I thought of in 20 minute this morning. 

  • I am thankful for a cup of warm coffee on a cold morning.
  • I am thankful for rowdy, noisy, at times frustrating boys - because they are here.
  • I am thankful for autism, because it helps me see the world differently.
  • I am thankful for wheelchairs because it allows my mom to still go shopping with me.
  • I am thankful for technology that allows my husband to work with a great company based in New York, all from our home office. 
  • I am thankful for open hearts and minds.
  • I am thankful for a husband, who loves me and honors me despite all my flaws.
  • I am thankful for my heating pad.  It helps relax my tired muscles at the end of the day.
  • I am thankful for sons who will go get me another cup of coffee - just cause they know I like it.
  • I am thankful for a family who will give me big hugs and say thank you for meals I prepare - even when a new recipe fails. 
  • I am thankful for forgiveness - because I need it all the time.
  • I am thankful for learning new things - it keeps life interesting.
  • I am thankful for cell phones.  It helps me keep up with our crazy schedules.
  • I am thankful for Jon's iPhone as it is a perfect thing to take away when needed. 
  • I am thankful for X-Box live.  I love cooking in the kitchen and hearing Jon share his faith with people he does not even know.
  • I am thankful for a mother-in-love who knows the beginning of school is stressful - so she makes a few dinners - so I don't have to cook that night.
  • I am thankful for ear buds - two teens in the house - enough said.
  • I am thankful for spellcheck - because I cannot spell.
