Today, I am Thankful

A while back, I read One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.  I am, on a daily basis, so thankful for the gifts that God gives to me.  However, I have come to realize that I am really crummy at writing down the things with which I have been gifted.  Today, the cup is running over into the saucer, and I had to pick up my list again...
  • for sunlight streaming in the morning windows
  • for being nearsighted with healthy eyes
  • for a summer job for my son that is just the right fit
  • for successful open heart surgery for my aunt
  • for a summer haircut, and no wait!
  • for a speech given, an assignment completed
  • for six end-of-the-year exam exemptions for my son (hello!)
  • for volunteering before being volunteered
  • for people who go beyond the call of duty to serve others
  • for fluffy chocolate chip pancakes

  • for excitement building
  • for people and places that give sweet relief from the everyday
  • for items checked off a to-do list
  • for laundry, caught up
  • for sunshine and blue skies
  • for affirmation along life's road
  • for after-school snacks and discussions
  • for our kitchen table where we sit and see one another, hear one another, appreciate one another
  • for surprises

Matthew 12:34b

"...for the mouth speaks what the heart is full of."


  1. And I am thankful for online friends like YOU!
    You're such a blessing Sally and your blog always encourages, uplifts, and redirects us to think on those things that are 'good'.
    By the way... now I have a sudden urge for some chocolate chip pancakes. Hmmm...

  2. Sally -- Thanks for the reminder to be thankful, and for your great list! Be blessed!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I read each and every one, and truly enjoy "conversations" with you! ~Sally
