Let's try this again, shall we?

It's been a while, about a year or so since I've last linked up with Ann Voskamp at A Holy Experience to give thanks for the simple things {and not so simple things} in life. Honestly, at times it just felt trite or cheesy and I had a hard time thinking of things to be thankful for. I know that sounds lame and ungrateful, but it's true. I want to try again though, because I really do have so much to be thankful for. I've been so negative lately and have had such a bad attitude and perspective and I realize that something needs to change, being thankful seems like a good place to start!

I think I left off at #135.

here are #'s 136-146

  • waking up early and enjoying being the only one awake in a quiet house
  • the Word and the encouragement it brings my soul
  • listening to books on my ipod
  • reading actual books when time allows
  • anticipating time spent with friends
  • making journals and enjoying the creative process
  • my husband and everything he does, need I say more?
  • being challenged by each new stage that parenting brings, or so i'm trying to convince myself! ;)
  • the sun pouring through the windows
  • yards sales and good, thrifty finds! {a post to follow??}
