think thankful thoughts

It has been a really hard year for me and I seem to be stuck in a "poor me" attitude lately. I am more focused on negatives rather than positives. I was reading a very motivating blog post last night and I thought it was just the remedy to help me crawl out of my "poor me" hole. THANKFULNESS....... And lets read what the scripture says about thankfulness.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1Thessalonians 5:18

Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. 
Colossians 4:2

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
Psalms 107:1

God doesn't want us to be thankful when life is going great, but ALL the time! So, I will share 50 things I am most thankful for. I encourage you to do the same.

I am thankful for......

Knowing my Lord and savior
My wonderful and loving husband
My two little rugrats
My pets
My home sweet home
Sunny weather
Chai tea
Cute purses
Big belly laughs
Sleeping in
Retail therapy
Taking walks
Homemade Mothers Day cards
My artistic ability
My Mom
Rainy nights
A wonderful church
Giving to others
Baby toes
Living in a free country
Someone else doing the dishes
Hugs and kisses from my Boys
My husband telling me I am beautiful
Alone time
Girly movies
Bright colors
The ocean
My children's health
Tears of joy
Cuddling just before I fall asleep
Finding my soul mate
Creating new things from old
Family pictures
Being home

Thank you God for all you give me!
