Motivational Monday

Greatful...Grateful is the correct spelling but I think it should be GREATFUL..Because I have a great amount that fulfills me.
When you find things to be Thankful for it will pull you out of a pit. It will realign your vision. It will put a new spirit in you. It will humble you.
Sometimes it is so much work and other days it is natural.

10 things I am GREATFUL for:
  1. Moms Blueberry Pie..so good warmed with vanilla ice cream over it
  2. The Beautiful Full moon this evening. God Created that...WOW...Humbled
  3. Opportunity to run in our Running club tonight. It was so awesome. The night was perfect.
  4. For mom and dad. Ran into them in the grocery store. Mom said "Dad noticed your car in the parking lot." Dad: "Nita's here, we will find her in the healthy stuff." And thats where they found me! 
  5. Andy had an extra Ipod..Broke ANOTHER one today! It just got REALLY hot when it was being charged and never turned on again..
  6. The whole family liked dinner tonight and it was SUPER easy: Pulled Pork sandwiches, cottage cheese, Baked beans and Kettle Salt and pepper chips.
  7. Boys were quiet for me to rest for 30 minutes before my 2nd run. 
  8. I got to hear my sweet nieces voice, "Sarah" called me this afternoon.
  9. 25 kids that were in my house along with 5 incredible leaders trying to grow them closer to Christ. 
  10. The toenail that came off tonight reminding me that I am on schedule with my training!
What Are You Grateful For??



  1. I'm thankful for my own family. The thing is, my sisters and parents and I have never been REALLY close. Then, in January I was terminated by my employer and emailed divorce papers by my wife. And what happened, my family really REALLY rallied round, so that where my whole world could have collapsed, I can now see a future. Sure, maybe not quite how I'd planned, but still an intriguing and fascinating one indeed.

    Frankly: one of those times where all I can do is look up at heaven and say "I know this is you at work here God ... thanks for watching over me Big Guy"

    1. Stephen, You post brings tears to my eyes. Your gratitude is powerful. When the PIT is begging for your company God is there encircling you with Love and support. I love that you looked up and not down.
      I am so sorry for your circumstances. I love your words, outlooks and gratitude. "For I know the plans for you declares the Lord..."
