thankful thursday

Dear Lord,

Did I say forget to say thank you for waking me up this morning?

I’m sorry, I was blind-sighted by the alarm clock and how late I started to run.

Did I forget to say than thank you for the food in my fridge?

I’m sorry, I was busy complaining about not having my favorite yogurt that I completely overlooked my full fridge.

Did I forget to say thank you for spending time with my children?

I’m sorry, I was overwhelmed with the amount of house work that keeps piling up because I never get a moment to start.

Did I forget to say thank you for providing me with work?

I’m sorry, I was busy complaining about my duties and how what I have is not enough.

Did I forget to say thank you for my spouse?

I’m sorry. My mind only focused on everything that they weren’t doing right in my eyes, that I failed to see everything that they did do–was with love.

Did I forget to say thank you for seeing me throughout my day?

I’m sorry, I failed to see how you held my hand in the morning, fed me, gave me the gift of happiness and laughter, providing me with a means to live, and giving me someone to love and to love me in return.
