An attitude of gratitude

Its funny how, when we're facing something hard, even if its brief, it can make us forget the multitude of blessings that proceeded that trial. I was in a pit this weekend. Really depressed, and bitter, and frustrated about something...something minor really. And as I looked toward blogging my blessings I convinced myself that there was no reason to give thanks...its a sad place to be, but I know I'm not alone. Satan fuels those negative thoughts until we turn our back on God...thankfully I realized this soon into my pity party and I knew I had to continue with my list.

-RAIN! We actually got some rain on Saturday! EVERYONE I came into contact with was ecstatic.
-we did not meet or beat the record for consecutive 100+ degree days. We made it to 40, and caught a blessed break.
-God performed a miracle...
-a very supportive husband
-chatting with friends
-An abundance of volunteers at spirit night
-birthday celebrations and baby showers
-a relaxing craft day
