a perspective that I want to remember

Yesterday as I had a rare spare moment to breath and think, I looked around our house and started to get overwhelmed. Then I caught myself...I have so much to be thankful for! And I want to remember this!

I'm thankful for my loving Heavenly Father that is so gentle and forgiving!

I'm thankful for my loving, devoted husband... who also provides so well for our little family!

I'm thankful for healthy, robust children! They wear me out regularly, but I love watching them grow and change!

I'm thankful that I have the health and some energy to keep up with our little family!

I'm thankful that we have a house, car, and food!

So, with these simple and wonderful things in mind... the piles of laundry, dishes, crumbs under the dining room table DON'T MATTER AT ALL!

Because we only have one life to live!

I want to be more present and thankful!
