As the seasons change, so do the holidays!
Tis' the Season to be Jolly and GRATEFUL.
As Thanksgiving and Christmas approach, I am trying to make a conscious effort to be more grateful for the wonderful life I have. Too often, I find myself looking at the glass half empty. Terrible, I know. It seems easier to give in to the pitfalls of life than appreciating the goodness around us.
Our lives and our world is full of goodness. And this holiday season, I am taking advantage of it!!
some things I am thankful for:
-caring, helpful (hottie-tottie) husband :)
-family- even with all our craziness
-true friendships that give encouragement during those times you need it
-Our God given talents- we all have them, but are we all using them? I want to start utilizing mine.
-learning life's lessons through the eyes of my wise grammal
-having new beginnings, new challenges, and new experiences
-being able to sleep through the nights (apparently, this one really is a gift because my husband is constantly reminding me of how lucky I am to fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow)
-not "really" worrying about finances
-sweet cuddly puppy
I put up a banner in our living room as a reminder of the gratitude I need in my daily life.
I was also in the festive spirit for a new wreath. I made this one out of dyed coffee filters.
