It is easy to get off track and focus on all the things going wrong in our lives, especially when things all around you seem as if they are in chaos or not going the way you think they should.  It is so easy to get in the “glass half empty” mindset. We all have days we are frustrated with the kids who can’t seem to get along, or our husbands who we are not seeing eye to eye with at the moment. I choose to be thankful! We have to make a conscience effort and a decision to be happy with where we are and what we have, instead of focusing on what we don’t!
“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1Thessalonians 5:18

Today I am thankful for 4 beautiful children that are full of life.

I am thankful that I am able to take the summer and focus on having fun with them, making memories.

I am thankful for my hard working husband who allows me to stay home with my babies. I was blessed with a husband who is fully on board with my decision to be a stay at home mom and homeschool our children. He wouldn’t have it any other way, and for that, I am blessed!
I am thankful for my amazing new house with my deck that I get to have coffee at every morning.

Also, for the awesome view as I look off of my deck.

Most importantly I am thankful for an Amazing God who without Him, none of this would be possible!!

What are you thankful for today?

    I’m also thankful for our four healthy children and the cup of tea I’m drinking right now. :)
