#thankfultuesday - Never too grateful


What a cute, but very true line from Winnie the Pooh. Our heart can never be too full of gratitude. In fact I firmly believe our hearts will grow, and our ability to love will increase as we express gratitude more often. We will begin to love our lives more, love the people in our life more and see the good in the world.

I'm grateful....

1. The relaxing Friday night I got to just read my book and bake some treats.

2. That I was able to go on a run on Saturday and ran without stopping, which for me is a big deal.

3. That I was able to hear a story that reminded me of the Lord's tender mercies.

4. For the opportunity I had to go to a LDS Young Single Adult Fireside with a group of wonderful young ladies and to hear words that rang true in my heart.

5. For the great turnout I had in my class on Sunday, and for all the great comments from the students.

6. For this beautiful and warm January weather.

7. That I could walk to lunch yesterday. In a skirt. With no coat or tights on. It was that nice!

8. For the fun/successful event I had last week at work.

9. For the trials I'm going through that are helping strengthen my faith.

10. For friends who text me randomly, just to see how I'm doing.

What are you grateful for this week?

  2. Oh, this is a good thing to do! (Especially since I've been on the phone, or on hold, with a doctors office and insurance co's today *grrrr*)

  5. I love this! Kinda lame, but I am especially grateful for my kitty being happy and healthy! (Scott accidentally stepped on her little foot the other day! It was the most heart breaking thing ever watching her limp around and be super mad and staying under the bed!)

  9. Such a great exercise to follow!!
    I totally agree that taking time to verbalize and write out what we feel thankful for can literally change the course of everything.It's a great way to readjust our attitudes. :) Thanks for the reminder!
