I AM GRATEFUL

on December 18, 2012

After I heard about the horrible things that happened in Newtown, Connecticut this week, my prayers changed a bit….

Thank you for my five year old spilling milk on the table.

I’m grateful.

Thank you for my 2 year old not falling asleep until almost 11pm last night;

I’m grateful.

Thank you for the battle to get my kids ready for school and daycare this morning.

I’m grateful.

Thank you for Diva girl having an accident in my bed after having a nightmare at 4am in her room.

I’m grateful.

They fought over a bag of popcorn today and cried when their father took it away.

What a beautiful sound.

Baby girl had a tantrum yesterday because she didn’t want to go to bed.

What a blessing.

I am thankful; I am grateful for every challenge, big or small that I am blessed enough to face with these two beautiful girls.

Thank you. Thank you. Dear God, thank you.

  1. You are so right. I wish it didn’t take tragedy to remind me to be grateful. Thank you so much for sharing this. I can treasure the meltdown moments. 🙂

    What a great goal for 2013. I am thinking of doing that jar trick. You pick a jar and have a note pad by it. Write down the good things that happen in a year. Small, big, doesn’t matter. Then when another new year comes around you read them all.

    This is so true. All the cries and whinning has become a complete blessing to be grateful for.

  4. So true and so real from the view point of a mum who loves her girls. Well done and remember they are grateful for you being grateful 🙂
