Give Thanks……Don’t Take it for Granted!

About a year and a half ago, I was at a bridal shower for a friend, and the women there were taking turns giving words of wisdom. There were a lot of wonderful things shared, but the one that really stuck with me was this, “Don’t take him (your husband) for granted”

Here lately I have been thinking about taking things for granted. As I sit here, I can list a lot of things that I do take for granted, that I shouldn’t. So as Thanksgiving approaches rather quickly, the following is a short list of things that I want to learn to be truly thankful for and not just take for granted.

Kyle Being Healthy; being a hard worker; having such a servants heart; being patient; and pretty much just being the most awesome husband ever!
Being Pregnant
Having a vehicle
Kyle having work
A husband that likes to laugh
Kyle’s strong, yet gentle hands
Being able to openly be a Christian

God has blessed me with so much….why shouldn’t I take more time to be thankful for it? 🙂



Yes, I know…Thanksgiving was a few days ago, and this is ‘late’, but as I see it, everyday should be Thanksgiving.  Why only take 1 day to be thankful for what we have…what about the other 364?  So…even though ‘Thanksgiving’ is past, I still want to post some of the things I am thankful for.

~ A life-changing Summer 🙂

~ Good friends who encourage me when I am struggling with something

~ Someone paying to have our piano tuned

~ Someone giving me the money to go on Journey to the Heart

~ Being close to family and friends, so it makes it easy to get together for a visit

~ All the things God has shown me this year 🙂


There are many more to be sure, but I think that’s all I’m going to put for now…I may do another post like this again though. What are you thankful for?

Count your Blessings 🙂
