Thankful Thursday- The Little Things

Today’s theme for Thankful Thursday is “the little things”. You can join in the fun at Grace Alone.

I love the little things in life- I think that is what life is really all about. If we miss the enjoyment of the little things, we miss out on so many opportunities to be grateful for the things that bring us joy. Here are a few of my vices, um, I mean little things I’m thankful for πŸ™‚

***a good ole cuppa joe. I love my coffee. Need my coffee. Bring me some coffee!

***chocolate. Need I say more?

***books I loooove to read. I devour books! In fact, I just got a great new one in the mail yesterday to review (keep an eye out for a review of Kristin Armstrong’s latest inspirational book in early March)

***journaling Journaling (not blogging, although I love that too) is how I communicate with myself and often with God. I work things out by getting my thoughts on paper, I pour out my heart to God through written prayers. I have journaled since I was a child and it is a truly important part of my life.

***pedicures and manicures. Getting my nails done always makes me feel better!

***living in a small town I have to drive into Washington, DC frequently for medical appointments and it always makes me thankful for the semi rural setting we live in. A small town, a great church family, a home we love with room for our kids to play and dogs to run. Those are great things to be thankful for.

***and of course my family! My hubby, my boys, my doggies and everybody else that I love.

What a great list of little things! Made me happy just writing it out…what are the little things you are thankful for?

    Visiting from Thankful Thursdays …

    I, too, am thankful for COFFEE! And for living in a small town where streets are clean and well dressed. Our city has a team of two women who work hard planting and maintain the medians in our small town, and driving through streets lined with flowers and decorative trees is SO comforting to me!

  3. Chocolate, coffee…so many blessings abound in our life! Happy Thankful Thursday!

    I miss the small church I attended all my life. 40 people at the most on a Sunday. Now the one I attend has 3 congregations and thousands of people, so even though I really love the feeling of it and I love worshiping there, more than I did the small church. I just don’t have as many connections as in the small church.

  8. Is that actually your little town? How quaint!! We have so much to be thankful, don’t we?

  9. I love your list! I too am thankful for chocolate, just had a bite actually πŸ™‚

    I also love to journal my prayers… I have boxes filled with old journals. There is just something about getting it all down on paper.


  10. I love your blessings, chocolate, yummy.
