30 days of thanks--day 2

It's November, and this month I'm going to make a conscious effort to write my thanks every day. I often think of things I am grateful for and thank the Lord for them throughout the day. This is good. But when I actually pause to write those things down, they become a testimony of the Lord's grace in my life--a gift that keeps on giving every time I read and remember. 

I am not committing to making a list of a certain number of things each day. Some days I may only write one thing I'm thankful for, other days I may write several. Perhaps sometimes list the same thing twice (I daily thank the Lord for my wonderful husband and daughter!). There are no rules to this--except that every day for the next 30 days I will GIVE THANKS. Would you care to join me?

463. The limp weight of Tirza after her early morning feeding, right before I put her back to bed. The most warm, cuddly thing on earth--a sleeping baby

464. A second humidifier that came in the mail, just in time

465. A short nap with my baby snuggled on top of me

466. Tirza being sweet and quiet all day, while I was not feeling well (she'd be lying beside me so sweet and quiet that I would wonder if she was feeling sick--as soon as I checked her she'd grin as if to say, "Oh, I'm so glad you're here--I've just been looking all around. The world is such an interesting place!" Thank the Lord for a baby that can entertain herself sometimes.)

467. My hubby taking most of the day to look after me

  1. Hi Ruby,

    Nice to meet you. I'm hopping over from Ann's link up. Counting gifts with you too, your notes of snuggling your little Tirza sound precious! I remember those days, and still scoop my kids up or pull them low for snuggles. :)

    Have a great week,
