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 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

  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. Congratulations to Dylan!

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

  4. 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!

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