First Giveaway Winner & Giving Thanks

My first giveaway was an impromptu giveaway, but that's okay! Still fun, right? I used random.org and the # it gave me was... #2. KCShipe @ BooksNBoys wins the Clean and Clear package! Congrats!!

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*



I was driving home from my doctor's appointment today and just couldn't stop thinking about things in my life that I am so grateful for. Here are just a few things that were running through my head today!





  • we don't have to worry about my husband losing his job

  • I am able to stay at home and take care of our house and children

  • we have "free" medical care

  • the four of us are very healthy

  • we have two running cars

  • we live in a nice house

  • we aren't starving and have plenty of food

  • we are able to go to the gym for free

  • and it even has a child and parent room

  • our kids have toys and clothes, probably too much of both!

I could go on and on, as I am sure you could, too! Sometimes I just get caught up in the day to day things and forget to stop and just be thankful.

Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul, Thank you, Lord, for making me whole; Thank you, Lord, for giving to me Thy great salvation so rich and free.

Awesome post. I need to write a thankful post sometime soon. I think we all need to remind ourselves how blessed we are.

(Now I'm feeling a tiny bit guilty for my latest blog post. It wasn't really whining, more like a wish list, but I need to remember what I have been blessed with.)

Thanks for the reminder!

Taking a minute to actually write down my blessings always gets me out of whatever funk I might be in. I am just so lucky...I could not ask for more. It is nice to see I'm not the only one who feels this way.
