Thinking Thankfully

Posted: November 16, 2008 in Uncategorized

I’ve had a bit of a rough week and my writing skilz are a little sketch right now.  I did, however, read a post by one of my favorite writers in the whole world and it made me stop and think about all the stuff that makes me happy in life.  Check out Tori’s post here – and then make your own list of things worth celebrating today.  Here’s mine:

  1. Hot Shower
  2. Hot coffee
  3. Christmas cups at Starbucks
  4. Water that comes straight out of the tap, just because we want it to
  5. Finding the perfect Christmas gift for one of my kids yesterday
  6. No plans for Sunday afternoon
  7. Sunshine in November
  8. The opportunity to go to church this morning without fear of opposition

Wow…for small stuff, that’s pretty big.

What’s great in your world today?
