What are you thankful for?

I am pretty Blessed. Actually, I am more than pretty Blessed, I am abundantly Blessed!

There are so many things in my life that I am thankful for, in fact, there are so many things that if I were to list them all, then we would be here for days and I am sure you have better things to do than read page after page (after page) of all my Blessings.,

Now, I am not saying my life is perfect, I think we all figured that out after my last couple of blogs! Just because it’s not perfect though, doesn’t mean that it is not filled to overflowing with Blessings. But I must admit, there are days when I fail to see how Blessed I truly am. I can get so caught up with what is not going right, and with how much I have on my plate, that I just don’t see what is laying right in front of me!

I have the privilege of writing for our Women’s Blog we have at Church and this week I wrote an article about being thankful, you can read it here. In New Zealand, we don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving like they do in the USA, but our Church has adopted a weekend of Thanksgiving which I just love. For me, it slows me down and makes me think about what I am truly thankful for.

It’s not always about the “big things” but it’s about the day to day thing we so often take for granted. It’s about slowing down enough to see all the Blessings that we can so easily miss when we get busy, tired or distracted from what’s important.

So this week I am slowing down, I am being intentional, and I am taking the time to notice everything I am blessed with! How about you?

  1. Love what you wrote as it’s so true, life is not perfect but that does not take away from the countless blessings, big and small that we have. I am so incredibly thankful for so many things, and could also be there for days if I was to write it all down 🙂
