I have a husband that couldn't be special-ordered to be any better fit for me.
My children are amazing - each one makes me prouder than I can even express.
We have a home, where people are welcomed and enjoyed.
Our extended families are all close by, and I couldn't be happier about that.
I have some of the dearest, best friends I could ask for.
We have a loving community of believers to live life with.
We just re-shaped our LifeGroup, and it looks like it's going to be amazing.
All my children sing like angels, and I get to hear them sing all the time!
Our bills are paid and there is food in our fridge.
I have two goofy dogs, that make me laugh.
I feel safe, loved, and cared for.
God has put others around me to minister both with and to.
I am healthy.
I have a job that I enjoy and that helps our family reach their goals.
I have a car to get me to that job.
I have been able to home educate each of our children and would not trade that for anything.
This list could go on forever, because our God is so good to us.
Nearly everything on that list I can also flip around and find a negative on days that I'm so inclined to look for the negative.
But, today --
I'm going to choose thankfulness.
I'm going to choose blessing.
Today, I'm going to choose joy.
What are you choosing to consider joy today?
