An Encouragement

I have been wanting to share this for some time now. Except, I've had a hard time looking at things in this light.

Maybe this will encourage some of you. I know most people that read this are mothers and for the most part we all take care of chores around the house. Soooo...

Thank you God for the dirty dishes, that means that my family has been fed.

Thank you God for the piles of laundry, that means that my family has been clothed.

Thank you God for the toys strung all over the house, that means I can provide entertainment for my children.

Thank you God for the bills that come every month, ok I'm not thankful for that one.

Thank you God for the alarm clock that goes off Tuesday-Friday, that means I have a job.

Thank you God for the kids who cry when I drop them off at day care, that means they love me.

I have been thinking about this lately because for the last two weeks, it seems as though I just can't get the laundry caught up, and the cob webs in the windows are mocking me everytime I walk in the door! I've thought about just leaving them there for Halloween...

What are you thankful for?

I too am thankful for all my girls. God has truly blessed me with 4 beautiful girls. Kasey, Keli and my two baby girls Hayley and Leighton. A wonderful son-in-law Brandon whom I love very much.

I love you all very much!!!
