Still Thankful

Grateful Heart by Katherine & Elizabeth Pope
Grateful Heart

My DD is not feeling well today. She's been vomiting since 7am and now she also has diarrhea. And of course my day is not going as planned. It's 2pm and I haven't done much today. But still I am thankful for so many things. For our lives, for our health because there are a lot of people (and also children) who are going through much more difficult times, due to disease or other reasons. I'm also thankful for being able to be at home with my daughter, for a loving husband, for a wonderful family, for wonderful friends, and the list goes on and on. I know that we say these things quite often but I think it's never too much. We have to think about this every day. Instead of moaning when things are not as we expected, we should look at the loooooooong list of blessings that we have in our lives and be thankful for each one of them.
