Gratitude Journal #246

Today, I am grateful for last week and everything about it. For the friends I made, the many things I learned, the fireworks I saw, the prayers I said, the skills I gained, the safe travels of many, the loving care of my family, the fun they had without me, the joy we felt at reunion, the kindness and generosity of my sister-in-law and brother-in-law...the list goes on.

Today, I am grateful for my prayer partner in Pittsburgh: Althea. And I'm grateful for all the other women and men I met who made the experience so rich and educational.

Today, I am grateful for the piles of stuff all over my house. At least, I am trying to be grateful. Mostly, I just want to tackle and tame them. But really, they represent a full and wonderful life, and I repeat that mantra when I want to burn them all with fire.

Today, I am grateful for my aunt, who broke her back (at the L-1 vertebra) falling off a ladder at church while decorating for vacation Bible school. She is recovering well after that terrifying experience and will be fine. I am also grateful to all my friends who prayed for her when we didn't know what the prognosis was.

Today, I am grateful for our plans to go to Wisconsin for the Ironman race...George's eighth attempt and possibly fifth finish. What a fun experience...again. Especially since Angela (George's sister) and her husband Mike will be there with us again this year!

What are you grateful for today?


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
