count your blessings



i’ve realized lately that it’s really easy to forget how much i’m thankful for. life gets chaotic and before i know it i’m taking everything for granted. aren’t we called to more than that? aren’t we called to live a life of thankfulness? i am so guilty of forgetting this. all week i found myself speaking of nothing but complaints. the reality is, i’m blessed beyond belief. there’s things that i know i’ve never audibly thanked the lord for (ex. wifi, like what on earth would we do without it?) here’s a few other things i never find myself being thankful for:

air conditioning, storms, cheescake, gas in my car, shoes, sunshine, not studying, making money, getting to influence a child’s life, texting, snapchat, knowing how to read and write. 

who’s with me? who else has never audibly said “i am thankful for the ability to write?” guys, i am having an epiphany right now. imagine what your life would be like if you didn’t know how to write or spell. granted, i’m kind of the worlds worst speller (i’ve been told it’s a homeschool thing). but the fact that i can write my thoughts down is incredible. i can scribble a note and leave it on the kitchen table so my roommates know where i am. i can text my mom and find out what’s for dinner (i know, hard to believe i would do such a thing). these are all blessings in themselves. so i dare you, take 60 seconds and think of as many things as you can that you’ve never found yourself being thankful for before. it’s amazing. now i’m going to take a shower, which i am super thankful i have the opportunity to do. happy weekend to all!
