30 Days of Gratitude Days 30

Today is the last day of my 30 days of gratitude post.  This was a pretty big commitment for me because I’m really busy and tired when I get home in the evenings, but I am really glad that I decided to make that commitment.  There were a couple of times where I combined days but I’m still pretty proud of this small accomplishment.

The 30 days of gratitude forced me to think about something everyday that I am grateful for.  Although I only posted one thing in each post, I could always come up with more.  This gave me an opportunity to reflect on how truly blessed I am.  I can always come up with things that are not right, that I don’t like, or how I want things to be different.  Taking a moment everyday to really focus on what I am thankful and grateful for makes everything else seem small.

Through this exercise I looked at my situation compared to others and realized how much I have to be grateful for.  I realize that no matter what my situation is, there is always someone who would love to be in my shoes.

I will end my 30 days of gratitude with a top 10 list:

  1. I am grateful that Jesus died for our sins
  2. I am grateful for my life health and strength (that’s what you always hear someone say it church but it is true)
  3. I am grateful for my good husband who is loving caring and very supportive of my dreams and goals.
  4. I am grateful for my children and their health.  I am grateful that I do not have any serious problems with my children. (I know this is two things but I’m trying to stick with 10)
  5. I am grateful for my parents and what they have done for me and how they raised me.
  6. I am grateful for my grandma. She keeps my youngest daughter everyday and picks my middle daughter from school every Friday.
  7. I am grateful for my brother and his love for me.
  8. I am grateful for my friends and the friendship they give.
  9. I am grateful for my job.
  10. I am grateful for my neighbors.

My new challenge to myself is to take a moment at the end of everyday to think of one thing that I am grateful and thankful for and write it down in a gratitude journal.  No matter how bad the day may have been there is always something to be grateful for.

For this post I chose a picture of my girls that I took this past Sunday.  I was excited about how well it turned out because it was my first time using off camera flash.  I got the card template from Ashe Design.
