Attitude of Gratitude

I am thankful for the following:

1.God sent His son Jesus. He lived a perfect life. He did no wrong, and yet he DIED on a cross for MY sins (and yours too!!). How amazing is that?! Oh how HE loves us!!

2. God creating us-enough said.

3. My family. My parents are pretty great, and I had a great life growing up. I'm thankful they raised me in a Christian home. I'm also thankful that I have parents that I enjoy spending time with now that I'm an adult. :-)

4.My husband. He is a godly man, and for that I'm eternally grateful. Even when I don't like him, I love him.

5. My 3 healthy boys! They are active, wild, sometimes they don't listen, sometimes they don't make the best choices...but they are healthy!!! They keep us on our toes! I have to constantly remind myself that they are not MY children...they are God's and HE has entrusted them to me.

6. My friends. It is nice to have a circle of good friends to be able to hang out with, call up and blab with, and just be yourself!

7. My job. I do what I love every single day and for that I am extremely grateful!

8. Money in the bank, a roof over my head, food in the fridge, clothes in my closet, and a car in the garage.

9. That I am able to run, and I enjoy it so much!

10. My loved ones are healthy and happy.

11. I live in a free country!!!
