Gratitude List {52 Lists}

52 lists with Chasing Slow

"What if you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?"

What would you thank God for today?

I don't recall where I saw the quote, but it made me think, and as I was tucking Eliana in bed one night, I told her about the quote and asked her what she would thank God for. I will cherish that time as it was a peak into her precious heart and what she taught me.

So many little things to be grateful for:
  • for each other
  • for my husband and children
  • for family and friends
  • for a big enough house to live in
  • for heat, electricity, and clean running water 
  • for the location of our house (close to the Y, two city parks, city library, a walking path, and downtown)
  • for a husband who does dishes, laundry, vacuuming, and helps out
  • that my husband has a job he loves and can walk to work
  • that our needs are met being a single income family
  • that I get to be home with my kids and homeschool them
  • for the house we are {still} building in Montana
  • that we have an endless supply of firewood
  • for coal to keep us warm through the night 
  • for 4-wheel drive and reliable wheels
  • for kids that love to homeschool and love learning
  • that kids still fight over who gets to sit by me at dinner ♥
  • that each bed has cozy warm bedding
  • for my electric blanket
  • for sweaters, wool socks, and warm boots
  • for beautiful fall weather
  • that Dylan passed his college entrance exams
  • for the blessing of being invited back for the 2017 Crew
  • for my blog, the accountability it brings, and the friendships I've made
  • for my camera and online photo storage
  • for my computer and phone and modern technology
  • for books and homeschool curriculum
  • for the lessons we are learning through the Prairie Primer
  • for the memories we make with Five in a Row
  • for YL oils and the blessing of an income to pay for them
  • for affiliate income that blesses my homeschool
  • for Project Life and the inspiration to cultivate a good life
  • for sunlight and the abundance of the earth
  • for wisdom from above
  • for my Father in Heaven from whom all blessing flow
  • and for so many other little things we take for granted each day


  1. It's so hard to stop; once I got started I really began to think of all the little ways in which we are so very blessed.

  2. Beautiful list! So many happy things in your list, it was a joy to read.

  3. Congrats for being invited back to the Crew! I did not ask to return next year, but I did enjoy my time this year.

    I always use that quote to my kids! It really helps us dig deep for things we are grateful for - flushing toilets, an oven to cook in, refrigerator, clean clothes, pillows and blankets...once we get going, we can't stop!

  4. Great list! I need to do this again with my children.
