I have created an AMAZING habit that I believe will stick with me as long as I can type or write!!! Posting what I am GR8TFUL for every night, as my FB status, for over 3 years has been an amazing habit to create and continue way beyond Thursdays and Novembers.
I started this habit in October of 2013, to gear up for November, and I am still at it 3 years later.
Today I am feeling especially emotional and GR8TFUL!!!!
Emotional as I am kicking myself for not being more organized and ready for one of my most nearest and dearest friends to arrive tonight and I am suffering through a migraine. But God…………..
But God has been sweet all day – giving me just enough energy to do just enough around the house and sending me sweet messages of encouragement through unsuspecting friends via Facebook messages or texts.
“With all my heart I praise the Lord! I will never forget how kind he has been.” Psalm 103:2
Today I am GR8TFUL for:
My friend, Jeanne, who is here from Hawaii, and staying with us for one night. We met when I lived on Oahu, with my Marine, and she will always be my favorite CAbi Consultant. She is one of my smartest and coolest friends ever!!! She has even agreed to get up early to do a short Periscope with me before she takes off tomorrow.
My friend, Ginger Harrington, who has always cheered me on and who is a seriously fun friend. She comes up with some of the coolest ministry ideas for us to try out and, if nothing else, we have fun laughing our way through it. Though we do not live in the same state anymore, we still get to do ministry together as military wives via Planting Roots.
My friend, Smart Chic Cynthia Bazin, who always gives me a shout out on her Periscope Broadcasts and has pushed me to be more Laser Focused.
And one of my newest friends, Sherry Nowlin, who God uses to encourage me at just the right moment. I have loved getting to know her and her husband, Scott, through Periscope and I look forward to meeting them both one day soon!!
My GR8TFUL list could go on and on as God has been so good to me – not only today, but every day!!!
Who or what are you GR8TFUL for right now?
