My eyes have really been opened lately to how much we have to be thankful for. I’ve also noticed how much we all complain about silly little things. Its really been bothering me!
So I’ve decided that in every situation I’m going to look for things to be thankful for. I’m sure I’ll be tested and that at times it will be hard, but hopefully God will help me to keep being thankful.
Like today, I was grumbling to myself about how I’m constantly doing laundry. I gave myself a swift kick on the behind and started looking for things to be thankful for instead.
- we have clothes that need washing
- which means we have money to buy clothes
- we have a washing machine to wash them
- I do lots of laundry because we have sprogs!
Suddenly, the laundry was no longer a chore and I started enjoying hanging it all up. I gave thanks to God for all of the above and felt much lighter and happier! All because I changed my attitude.
I’m thankful that God has opened my eyes to this. I pray that I will continue to look at my blessings and all I have to be thankful for, instead of moaning about petty things.
