Back in Action and Totally Thankful!

Well, it's been awhile since I've blogged. I feel like I don't really have much to blog about anyways. However, my boyfriend, Garrett, started a blog for his outfit in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M, so I figured I might as well resurrect the ole gal and have some more fun.

Today, I'm feeling super blessed. I have a mom who offers to go grocery shopping for me out of the blue - SUCH a blessing because we all know that college students (in my case, graduate students) don't have much of an income, so the extra help is always needed and heartily welcomed. I have roommates who listen and give Biblical advice at the breakfast table at 8:00 in the morning. I have a beautiful roof over my head and four walls around me. There are clothes in my closet, a car in my garage. I just said GARAGE - another blessing in itself. Garrett flew in from College Station to surprise me for the weekend... the list goes on!

Sometimes it's a lot easier for me to focus on what I DON'T have and cultivate an attitude of want or distrust in the Lord, when the simple discipline of saying thank you for what I do have has the power to change my entire perspective. Isn't that something?

What are you thankful for today?

  1. I'm thankful that I have a daughter, a gifted writer, who has decided to blog again. I'm also thankful that beautiful daughter lets me gift her with groceries and shares her heart in return. Love you, Leigh Leigh.
