When I was catching up on blogs tonight in Google Reader (I was behind 277 posts...for real...) I came across this one by Karena at Very Nearly Vegan.

Let me digress here by saying that I really admire Karena. She loves herself, her body, as is. I'm working towards getting to the mindset she's in because I truly think it's amazing and inspiring and, well, I wanna be like that when I grow up. *wink*

Back to where I was going with this...

She posted a gratitude list. How awesome is that? So I decided to post mine too. When I'm overwhelmed and exhausted and the kids are bickering I sometimes forget. I don't like it when I forget because I know that I am truly blessed.

I am grateful for...
  • healthy children
  • a hard-working husband
  • enough money to keep us clothed, fed and housed
  • a good relationship with my parents
  • the option to stay home with my kids
  • friends (my Shrinking Jeans sisters are some of the best friends I have)
  • the ability to see my children grow and hear them laugh
  • and so. much. more.
What are YOU grateful for?

    i love this, it is so easy to let the troubles we have overwhelm us. I am thankful I am healthy for the most part and can do something about why I am not!

    That's great, Jen! In the heat of the moment, it's often difficult to remember what you're grateful for. Now if only I can remember to look back at that list when those times come!
