Gratitude Sunday

I am dusting off the old button there and getting back into an attitude of gratitude!  I used to do this every Sunday, and it has been shamefully neglected, along with the rest of my blog.   *blush*

I am struggling a little bit to be grateful this week.  Life just keeps whacking our family lately.  It’s been one VERY LONG storm over the last 15 month or so, and I am ready for good weather.  It seems we just have to ride it out a little bit longer.  We’ll get there…I have faith!

So, here are the things I am grateful for today:

1. I am losing weight!  I started Atkins just over a week ago and I am so happy with the results so far.  What lady would not be pleased with that?

2. It’s almost a new school year!  I am all giddy with preparations for our SIXTH year of homeschooling.  The time has flown by and I am just as excited today as I was back in the summer of 2007.  🙂

3. The internet.  Always, always, always.

4. I am making a little bit of money by teaching some art classes for other homeschoolers. I love teaching and every little bit helps, especially when it comes to all the extracurriculars I end up paying for with my own kids.

5. Doctor Who.  I became a Whovian over the summer and the good doctor has helped me get through some tough weeks.  I have become just a wee bit obsessed…but what an amazing show!

I am always grateful for the obvious things…my God, my family, and my friends.  I am thankful for you, too!  I hope you are having a restful and pleasant Sunday.  xoxoxo

  1. Our family is coming out of a pretty bad storm as well. What’s really amazing about the storm is to be able to look back and see all of the truly amazing things God did for us! It does help to count blessings and keep your eyes on the Lord. I was so encouraged by this post. Thank you!
