How is Your Attitude of Gratitude?

That's what the sign on my church said this week. So I've been thinking about that attitude. I must admit it hasn't been the most gracious.... Too often I think about the things I need.. like my car being fixed, a part time job, etc rather than focusing on the things right in my life and what I'm thankful to God for giving me. While I'm hoping that each one of you have the BEST Thanksgiving, spending it with those you love, here is what I'm thankful for:

1. My family ... My relationship with them is getting better all the time. I've talked to my mom three or four times this week and don't want to kill her. :)

2. My friends ... I have the most amazing people in my life and I am blessed to call them my friends.

3. My job ... There are so many people who were without jobs this year and I'm very fortunate to have one!

4. "My kids" ... I know I sound like a broken record when it comes to my kids, but I am continually blessed by them. I love when I'm teaching them about the love of Jesus - THEY end up teaching me about their perspective; and it's so much sweeter than mine.

5. My car ... even though it definitely needs some work, I have something to get me to that job I'm so grateful for!

6. My church family AND my coworkers ... From the moment I stepped in, they welcomed me with open arms and have not let me down since.

the silly stuff ...

7. Baseball ... Seven months of the year when I can turn on the tv or go to a stadium and escape reality, while watching cute men run the bases.

8. FRIENDS ... No matter how many times I watch them, it never gets old. Have you had your Friends moment of the day?

9. David Cook, Josh Groban, and Rob Thomas ... Turning on my mp3 player has never sounded so good... I wish it played video though! :)

10. Facebook ... I love finding people from my past - including the woman who babysat me when I was younger!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!! Take time to reflect your attitude of gratitude today.
