{Thankful Thursday: April 25, 2013}

via Pinterest

Last night, while tossing and turning going through my entire to-do list I had a thought “Have I thanked God for anything today?” I couldn’t answer the question. I had no idea if I had. So I stopped the forever-long to-do list and did a quick “Ummm God, thank you for {insert laundry list}.” But it didn’t feel genuine. So then I became angry with myself. We live in a fast-paced world with “never enough time to get anything done” or have we made it that way? I’m starting to think the latter.

So I’m blaming the world around me (and how busy I’ve made myself) for not taking time out of my day to be thankful. Wow Megan, just wow. Get it together girl!!

Funny enough, while wasting time browsing Pinterest this morning I came upon the quote above. Talk about signs. Goodness! At any rate, it made me think. I mean truly think about that quote up there – what IF you woke up one morning and you lived in a world where only thing things you had thanked the Lord for, the night previous, were present. Scary thought right? That is, unless of course you take some time out of each day to be thankful.

So here I am on the last Thursday of April in 2013 about to give my laundry list, just in case I wake up tomorrow and it’s all that’s left in this world:

  • My health, and my family’s health
  • Financial stability
  • A country where we can live freely
  • A roof over my head
  • A loving and caring family
  • Gainful employment
  • Andrew
  • A healthy baby in my tummy
  • Supportive friends
  • Spring!
  • A loving & forgiving Savior
  • Okay am I going overboard?!?! 🙂 I could keep going, but I guess I’ll stop while I’m ahead right?

    What about you, what are you thankful for this Thursday?!?!
