Simple Gratitude

"Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you.  But if you turn your attention to other things it will come and sit softly on your shoulder..." ~Thoreau

Every time I reach a crossroad in the end or right before the end the answer is shown to me.  I am very grateful for this.  When the answers come most times I simply reply duh!  I think "I should have known that!"  But the blessing is learning it right at the correct time.

So today I'm Grateful For...
new truths
the beautiful sunshine
warm warter in the pool and a good book to read
my bible
the ability to cook dinner for my family
the reactions to my cooking from my family
hot coffee and cold water with crystal light
that I have a choice between the two
tight hugs
sweet kisses
joy deep in my soul
that I'm getting to know the real ME
I love the real me
the cool air blowing from our air conditioner
for the music blaring from my phone
my brand new phone (haven't been excited about a cell in a LONG time)
for the understanding that God is in control
He's on myside and I have nothing to fear
all will be as it should
to be alive

  6. Tabitha,

    Your attitude and your words continue to give back and inspire us all to look around and be thankful for what we do have instead of what we don't!

    If you get a chance, stop by and participate in some of my giveaways, most of them end this weekend! I'd love to have you join!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat
