I will be grateful



Day 14: I am grateful for the piles of laundry Ryan and I folded and put away last night. It means we have clothes to wear, clean sheets to sleep in and fresh towels to use. I am grateful for the dry skin on my hands today that are a result of washing dishes and cleaning my kitchen yesterday. That means my kitchen is relatively clean, my cupboards are full and we have choices about what to eat each day that lead to many dirty dishes. I am grateful for my feet that hurt today because I am wearing heels. Not only does that mean I have a job to go to, but I am healthy enough to walk the four blocks from the bus stop to work. I am grateful for crabby kids because it makes the happy days that much sweeter. And I am grateful for a God who loves me despite my heart of ingratitude many days. But not today. Today I will be grateful.
