Do you thank God for the big and small blessings in your life?
I’m really not as thankful as I should be. I realize I need to model what I teach to my kids, so I’m trying to assess how thankful I really am.
Do I see the incredible spouse I married, or do I just grumble about his faults? Do I see the health of a son who can play sports as a good thing, or do I just grumble about his sweaty laundry? Do I see how fortunate we are to have enough food to eat, or do I just grumble about a kitchen that never stays clean?
I know I’ve been given so much. I’m also guilty of becoming so distracted by these gifts that I forget to be thankful for them. I want the words “thank you” to fall so easily from my lips that it’s second nature for both the big and the small things in my life.
