And the countdown begins! I have have 2 more posts (after this post), left for my 30 day thankfulness challenge! I thought, this morning, about the differences I have seen since I doing these posts, and believe it or not I have seen a difference. It may not be this huge 180 degree difference, but I am noticing a change in my life and I am liking it . But more on that in my day 30 post. Well my friends, welcome back to another exciting edition of my Thankfulness Challenge, and like every other post I have made so far, I am going to be sharing 3 new things that I am thankful for today. So without further ado, the first thing I am thankful for today is,
Time alone with my wife: This one as been a bit more tricky as thing in life have gotten more and more busier. It can be hard at times to juggle a full time job, overtime, a wife, kids, kids going to school, other family members, chores, and spending time with God. It can be overwhelming at times because you want to make time for all of it, but there never seems to be enough time in the day. But I thank God for the time I do get to have with my wife. I know we around each other a lot, and on my days off of work we are around each other all day, but it isn't the same as spending quality time with her. And so that's why I am thankful for the time we spend watching tv; or talking about random stuff that happened; or watching vines, and fail compilation videos. Even though that doesn't seem like a lot, to us it means a lot. Even if we just sit in a silent room together, we love it, because it give us a break from all of the busyness around us. So I thank God for quality time we get with each other.
Next up on the list of things that I'm thankful for today is,
Projects for my wife: My wife loves to redo furniture. She loves buying old furniture off of Craigslist, or Facebook, and turning it into something beautiful. She can take something that someone sees as junk, and make it look better than what it did brand new. I don't know how she does it, but it's really cool to see because she will show me sometime she is going to get, and I'll just look at her like, "really, you want to buy that?" But she works her magic on it she is able to sell her work for some pretty good cash. I remember this one time she re-did a baby crib that the neighbor girl was tossing in the garbage, and flip it for a 100 dollar profit. Now, I don't know much about design, so after she was done with it, I asked her why she did it the way she did, but she insured me that the way she painted it and made it look was really popular, so I believed her. She then posted it online, and about 2 days later she sold that thing. The girl who picked it up kept telling my wife how beautiful it was and how much she loved it. So after that I never questioned her again. She really knows her stuff. So I thank God for that talent of her, and for the project he continually blesses her with.
And finally, the last thing that I am thankful for today is,
A smooth pregnancy: This is the biggest things that I am thankful for today, and everyday, really. As I mentioned in another post, unfortunately my wife and I have not had smooth pregnancies in the past, so seeing the baby healthy and growing makes us so happy and thankful. And we know with all of our heart that God's hand is over this child, and that this child is going to be born perfectly healthy with zero issues. And I thank God for the continue smoothness we are going to experience throughout the rest of this pregnancy. So really, that is it. I am so thankful, and bless that thing are going so smoothly with this beautiful child of ours.
And there we have, the end of another thankfulness post. Thanks again to everyone who reads these posts, and like always, I hope these bless you as much as they bless me. So until next time, I hope you all have a great rest of your night, or day, and God Bless.
