Life Simplified...Thankful Thursday

Life can be difficult or stressful no matter your circumstance...where you live and work, whether you're married or single, have a child, lots of children, or no children at all. I believe that in these times it is extra important to think of all the good things in your life, no matter how small, as it really does help to put your focus on the positive. Instead of being caught up in all the 'bad stuff' happening in your life, it can help to change your attitude into one of gratitude, making your present life and circumstances much more enjoyable.

Today I am sharing another 10 Things on my list that I am Thankful for on this Thursday...

1. God's Provision.

2. The incredible imagination that my little boys all have.

3. That my sons are respectful to their elders.

4. 'Falling Back' instead of 'Springing Forward' this coming weekend.

5. Fresh baked bread.

6. Wool socks.

7. Little boy hugs...and big boy hugs, too!

8. A hot shower.

9. Coconut date rolls.

10. Fresh peaches.

What are you thankful for today?
