Thankful Thursday: Giving Thanks for the Ordinary

Last week, Courtney of womenlivingwell.org (home of Good Morning Girls - the community and bible study I've been a part of for several months now) started a new series called Giving Thanks for the Ordinary.

Piggy backing off of her October series, Making Your Home a Haven, Courtney encourages us to light a candle in our home every day and each time we see the flicker of the candle to stop and give thanks to God for something ordinary. She's talking about the little things that we always take for granted and never give thanks for, not the big things like our home, family, and jobs.

So, the first day of the series, I lit a candle and looked around the room (my office/guest room) and found 10 things to be thankful for. Since then, I've added to my list every day. So, for Thankful Thursday today, I thought I'd share my list so far!

  • Coffee
  • Pip (my dog)
  • My Bed
  • Electricity
  • Pictures Full of Memories
  • My Calendar
  • Lotion
  • Lip Balm
  • Journals
  • Pens & Pencils
  • Blankets
  • Books
  • DVDs/Blue-rays/Netflix
  • Computer
  • Internet
  • Clean Running Water
  • Indoor Pluming
  • Washer & Dryer
  • Computer
  • Internet

I feel kind of silly leaving stuff out like my husband and other family and friends as well as our apartment and cars and God's word. But I'll save those things for another post.
