On being thankful...

So, it's been one of those nights, following one of those days. You know what I mean? The kids are...extra rambunctious, my poor house! I find myself grumbling under my breath (at first,) but then it gets louder. And in all the chaos, I don't stop to think about the good surrounding me. I seem to suffer from random insomnia. It doesn't happen very often, but when it does, there's no turning my brain off! I can be really annoying. I get on my own nerves! But, just before I go completely mad from lack of sleep and annoying myself...I stop and reflect. On the many blessings in my life! It really is the small things, like finding this on my cup when my husband brings me coffee I didn't ask for: Or a moment with Super Why, who's been crying ALL day,(and refuses to let me accomplish anything) when he turns his little face up to me and gives me a big fat kiss! I need to remember that, the tough days can build character and strength IF, I repeat "IF" I dwell on the good, the righteous, the holy, the lovely, the pure...and learn from them. Not get stuck "navel gazing" and wrapped up in my bad mood! Cherish Precious Moments. Tiffany (taffygrinch)

  1. Amen ... thanks for your honesty. Life is too short not to be authentic, and while I just happened to read this first post from you, I can see authenticity. We serve an amazing and Holy God ... and the noise of this world can try to blind us to His blessings, but all we have to do is look ... and stop "Navel Gazing" :) ... I love that expression! Sadly true too! ... anyway ... a future homeschooling family ... preparing now for our first year in the fall!
