Right now I am so thankful for my husband, which is a huge change from how I had been feeling a few weeks ago. His work schedule is hectic, and I had been feeling lonely and neglected. He is making an effort to help me feel less lonely and more loved. I am thankful that I can go to him, talk about what is bothering me, and have us work together to fix things.
I am also thankful for the book One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp. I still have a long way to go in this book, but every night before bed I read several pages. I usually have to force myself to put it down and get some sleep. Ann has a writing style that I thoroughly enjoy. She paints such beautiful pictures with her words that make me smile.
Oh goodness, I am also super thankful that summer vacation is right around the corner. I need to sleep! For the first few days of break I plan to sleep and only sleep. No child will wake me. I will slumber, and they will survive and thrive on their own. (Let me dream!)
Most of all, I am thankful that we have a loving God who will forgive us of our sins. My sins are many. I am imperfect, and I treasure that forgiveness and long to do better.
