  1. I am grateful for:
    Beautiful mornings when I can see the ocean – almost everyday!
    Being able to walk and move my body. I am in pain so much of the time but I keep moving because I CAN.
    A fresh relationship with my husband. It feels like we are dating again!
    The feeling of no striving or hurry or anxiety. Peace.Well-being.
    My iPhone!! I can talk with people, text, email, take pictures, play games!! Love it!!!

  2. I am SO grateful for a family that loves me and shows it each day, my new chronological Bible that I am reading each night, Beth Moore’s James study that has truly rocked my world a few days; my dogs, Max and Hope that are so fun and snuggly, being able to involved with our new satelitte location church plant and having the World’s Greatest Small Group. And being a grandmother is the greatest joy in life!

  3. I am thankful for God’s blessings above and beyond what we could ever ask or think.
    I am thankful for the ability to clean my house.
    I am thankful for 3 wonderful, loud, perfectly healthy children.
    I am thankful for a loving, kind husband and provider.
    I am thankful for family that will help us move even when they have more important things to do.

  4. I am thankful for new clients!

  5. I am thankful for:
    1. My relationship with God. It is one of the things in my life that is a constant and no matter what life brings me, I know I can get through it because of that.
    2. My daughters. They both bring SUCH joy to my life every single day (even on the days when they cause one to many grays in my hair!! :))
    3. Being independent. By this I mean I am thankful for the little things: I can take care of myself physically (I’m working on the financial :)). I can drive myself and not have to rely on others to get me where I need to go. I can cook and clean my own home and don’t need others to do it for me (although that would be nice! )
    4. I am thankful for Facebook. I know this sounds like an odd one but bear with me: I am thankful for all the friends it has brought back into my life along with the new ones. It has helped me reconnect with people I never thought I would see again. It has also helped me connect with women and men I can help through my business.
    5. I’ve saved the best for last!! I am thankful for the entire iBloom team and this wonderful book you have put together. You are all a HUGE inspiration to me and I am blessed to have you in my life (thanks to #4 that is! If it weren’t for Facebook I may not have ever found you!!)
    Have a wonderful week everyone!!!!! 🙂

  6. I’m thankful for:
    1) Healthy family
    2) Kenley Jane napping so I can do some work
    3) Doing a fun Valentine craft today with Halle Kate
    4) Talking to my Mom a few minutes ago
    5) K-Love Radio playing wonderful & encouraging music

  7. Love your blog and it is so true!! Despite our circumstances there are so many other things to be grateful for. 2 years ago I left my ministry work to take some time off and write a book series God was laying on my heart. I was moving forward and the idea for the series came together, it was exciting times. I had a supplemental job that was helping us with expenses and my hours had increased to cover the loss from the paid position I had in the Church. Even though I was paid at the Church I still did a lot of volunteer work. BY taking the time off, I was able to focus in the direction God had been leading me. Anyway, 5 months into the sabbatical, I was in a 4 car pile up. My back became injured. It is still injured with a permanent disability of 13%. However, during this time the writing continued but it was a lot slower then I would have liked and it too share differently then I thought it was going to be like. I look and read the pages that We have written seeing the growth and things I learned along this way. I would not have done this if I did not have the time to devote everything to it. I am down now to the last 5 chapters. I am so thankful despite the pain I am in, that I have had this time and that I have learned so much that I might not have learned otherwise. SO the five things I am thankful for: This long extended sabbatical I have been on growing in my relationship with God, My family whom are supporting me, My friends and on-line friends whom are encouraging me, The constant provisions from God during this whole time–resting in His provisions and being able to see Him at work, and finally seeing how He even provides those little wants just to say how much He loves me. .

  8. 1). My family
    2). Friends that are there for me to laugh and cry with
    3). A job that provides for my family and co-workers that I have come to love
    4). A beautiful home to keep me safe and warm
    5). My family’s health

  9. I was so surprised when I played this tonight! I was thinking of being grateful I was earlier for my car and this was before I listened to Kelly! It takes me all the way across town to the gym and back. Without it, I wouldn’t have Shapes, my friends, my trainer (who is also my friend). I am also grateful for my computer(s). It gives me the chance to meet people that I would never have met otherwise! I have met people in other states while commenting on a friend’s thread. I am grateful for my dog. He thinks I am wonderful and loves me unconditionally. I am grateful for books. God must love us a lot to give us books and chocolate! There are numerous other things for which I am grateful, but these were my thoughts today.
