Appreciating what we have

It is difficult to appreciate what we have. Mostly we think about the things we do not have.

I am really trying to change that and instead of asking the Lord to give me more I ask that He show me how to appreciate what I do have. It is not easy but I believe it is something we all should do.

Many times what we have are so obvious to us that we don't even think about being grateful for it. When in reality we should be grateful for all things. You know that birthday present you got and didn't really like? Well be grateful you did receive one and thank the person who gave it to you. Be grateful that your husband is faithful to you even if he moans too much sometimes, be grateful your kids aren't sick and that they are playful because when they are sick and can't play you would do anything to make them play again.

Yes it is hard, but the more we appreciate what we have around us the more complete our lives will be and the need for new things will become smaller.

Are you appreciating like you should?

Sleepy mommy

Yesterday I was totally exhausted! I don't know why but I was so incredibly tired that after dinner I went straight to the sofa with a blanket and a was asleep at 7.30. My husband was a bit surprised as it something I never do so he let me sleep. I woke up at 9pm and watched a show on TV and then I went to bed at 10pm.

This morning I felt as if I needed to sleep even more... how can that be? I am actually trying to reduce the hours I sleep, not increase them. But it was kinda nice to just lie on the sofa and doze off... lol

Too busy to blog

Wow, last week just flew by. I'm not even sure where time went. I meant to write the whole week but just couldn't get any time off. Now hopefully this week will be better. I've missed blogging! I have soo much to blog about so stay tuned :)

It's fun to build up the blog and I am having fun visiting all the participants from the Bloggy giveaways. I have yet to announce a winner and will try to do that tomorrow. Shame on me for not doing it earlier! *lol*

The weather is nice, life is good and I feel good knowing the Lord is always with me!

I wish my readers a blessed week!
