I don't think I really stop and think on a regular basis about just how much I have to be thankful for. I get caught up in thinking about all of the things that bug me and make me frustrated or upset that I don't really realize all of the blessings that God has given me.
So, I am going to post five things that I am thankful for.
#1: God, for loving me so much and for dying to pay for my sins.
#2: My family, who love me even when I am not very pleasant to be around.
#3: All of my sweet friends who encourage me, laugh and cry with me.
#4: my education/schoolwork (it takes a lot of effort to be thankful for that second one sometimes!)
#5: books. I love books.
And, due to the snow outside my bedroom window, I am going to add another: a warm house!
I have many more things that I am thankful for, but if I typed them all out, I would be sitting here forever! I hope that I never take for granted all of the things that God has given me.
