Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

1. It's Friday! The weekend is here & I can spend time with my friends and family.
2. Seeing my boyfriend in his new truck. He's been driving an $800 30 year old Ford for the past three years and to see him so proud of his truck brightens my mood.
3. My mom & dad. They would do anything for me & Justin (the boyfriend). My dad even bought the truck in his name so the payments wouldn't be so high. They took him in when we had only been dating six months and treat him like their son. They amaze me with their love.
4. Summer is almost here.
5. Scrapbooking. It has given me an outlet to get my energy out in a positive way.

Thank you for posting this. I needed a reminder of all that I have to be thankful for.

Heather said...

1. Today I am grateful that it is FRIDAY and I get to sleep in tomorrow. It's been a HARD week!

2. Today I am grateful that a wonderful parent at school gave me a wonderful box of beautifully homemade decorated cupcakes today. She raved and raved about my teaching and how much her daughter loves me and how much she's learned this year. It's so nice to be appreciated once in awhile.

3. Today I am grateful that my mom is so kind as to let me stay at her house so I don't have to drive up the hill.

4. Today I am grateful that my husband is so sweet and caring about my needs that he has no problem with me going to NYC with my friend this summer.

5. Today I am grateful that I am healthy and so are my family, friends, and pets.
