Today, Iris at Grace Alone is writing about why she is thankful for her five senses. It is a lovely post. Be sure to visit and read it.
In counting my blessings this week, I am thankful for:
- The privilege to serve our community and children via our preschool/Kinder/Pre-K program at church
- My house (I am praying very hard on this one...we LOVE our house, location, neighbors, proximity to great schools...however, we are a growing family plus I work from home and do find we are in need of more space. We currently live in a beautiful home. It keeps us sheltered. It offers separate rooms for my children. It has a sepaate office, dining, and play room. It sounds silly and petty to want more. I find that we have enough rooms but need a little extra space in each room for storage and such, especially with the kids getting bigger and my business [prayerfully] expanding.) So, I am thankful for the home I have. It is our family's haven in a busy world. However, I am praying on what decision we need to make for the future.
- My business. I am able to work out of my house running my own small business. It keeps me available to my children and husband and allows me to feel at peace with my domesticity working together with my professional life. I am in prayer over this as well right now as I am considering expanding in some different directions and hope and pray that the path laid before me will be positive for me and my family.
- As always, what I am most thankful for is my God who knows my heart, my husband who cherishes me, and my children who inspire me to be the best mother/teacher/role model I can be.
