My Abundance and Gratitude List

Good morning dear readers. I woke up this morning after a rough night with a teething child and my home looks like a tornado went through it. Odinn caught a stomach bug and got sick all over our couch which is covered in fabric and since he got it all over himself and his baby brother the priority at the time was to clean up the kids and then get back to the couch. This gave the mess time to sink in. Yes Eeeeeeewwww. This was just the beginning and Alex joined him in his returning ventures. Now my kitchen, which is my laundry room too, smells like baby chicks, dirty dishes and sick. Yeah. I’m functioning on less than 4 hours of sleep a night for over a week because Alex is teething and woke up to a pity party for myself since my house looks like a war zone. Once I sat down and had my coffee I started thinking and remembered the Newsletter Laura sent me from The Nurished Home about having an Abundance and Gratitude List visible in your home at all times. This lists all the things we have and love and are grateful for having. A great tool for when we are having rough days. To read over and be reminded by the good things so the right now hard things may seem less hard. So I sat down and wrote my list and here it is.

  1. yay the old comments are back! your blog post was just what I needed as I'm sitting here with an upset stomach (so okay, the sick part didn't help one bit) trying to muster up the energy for a second round of homework.
    My list would include many of the ones you listed and such things as the Bible, tea, a warm home, having enough of every thing I need and having more good than bad days.

    hope the children feel better and that you and hubby don't get what they have.
