The other day we gave our twin boys a little "prize" or something special, just because. Their response wasn't quite what we had hoped...they whined about it not being exactly what they wanted. If you are a parent, you know how this really hurts your feelings and then makes you worry about your child becoming a spoiled brat! Well...I'm not really that different. When Life doesn't turn out just like I like it I whine and complain and vent my frustrations.
When I have been discouraged or frustrated before I have done gratitude journals or writing a sentence each day of what I'm thankful for. So for the next 40 days, which will cover Thanksgiving, it is my plan to each day write what I'm thankful for. It would be great if I could blog each of these things, but they may end up being simply Facebook or twitter posts. I want to encourage you to join me starting today to write what you are thankful for (something different) each day for the next 40 days. We will end on December 10.
I know that by being thankful publicly it will create a "New" me, that is more about Him!
I'm also going to try and get my 4 year old boys to do this too! Here's to thankfulness!
