Gratitude

I am grateful for children who love each other, who all want to help Liberty or Ruby. I am grateful for my husband who gets up early every day to go to work and provide for our family. On this rainy Tuesday I am grateful for all the sunny days we have had and the opportunity to dig in the dirt and enjoy creation. I am also grateful for the rain today that allows us to stay inside and enjoy our home.


I am grateful for the freedom to worship, to teach my children, and for our health.


I am grateful for all the ways that I have been abundantly blessed, and for the gentle reminder to focus on that which is good.
2 Timothy 1:12-14
I know whom I have believed, and I am convinced that he is able to guard until that Day what has been entrusted to me. Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. By the Holy Spirit who dwells within us, guard the good deposit entrusted to you.

I loved this post!

I was thankful, today, too- for a rainier day. The kids wanted to be IN, not out, and we so enjoyed it... for today.

I don't comment much, Carolynn, but I'm always reading and enjoy your blog.

Thanks Stacy, Mostly I was trying to focus on the positive instead of complaining.

Carolynn, I agree with Stacy - I love reading your blog. It is so positive, motivational, non-judging, not boastful, and shows that you truly value your place as a mom. And you are always growing, too. You are amazing!
