1/2/13: What are you most grateful for?

Wow - two blogging days in a row!  :)

So if you missed yesterday's post, I'm trying this new thing called 365 Questions, which is exactly as it sounds.  I'm making no promises of never missing a day, but at least it's giving me a direction for my writing on here (something sorely needed!).

Today's question is a "toughy" because I can't possibly narrow it down to one thing.  Obviously, the biggest blessings are life itself, salvation, health, a wonderful family, and so forth.  But today, I am also grateful for the privilege of being a stay-at-home Mom.  I know that not everyone has this option, and I'm thankful both that my husband is in favor of this decision and that his job provides the means for me to be here.

No guilt is intended by this post.  If you choose to work outside the home, that's totally your business.

Please don't think that I am one of those Moms who blissfully goes through every single day, enjoying every minute.  There are certainly moments that I want to put them on the nearest school bus and go to work with grown-ups.  And trying to keep the house clean while the 3 of us are here most of the time is almost pointless.  But still, the blessings far outweigh the challenges, and there's really no place I'd rather be.

So how about you?  What are you most grateful for?

  1. Several things come immediately to my mind: 1) All 3 of our children are walking with the Lord AND guiding their children in the same path. 2) Your Dad's health and his unwavering fidelity to me. 3) The fact that our future looks bright, and we are hoping that God can still use us.
