Good things is something I've been doing for a few years now, and it seemed like a natural series to include here at WanderLove. It's simply a collection of the things in my life that are worth celebrating (big or small), and I find that writing them out especially helps me to overcome my tendency to complain. Life does come with frustrations, but I find that when I look at the big picture, they are usually small things in comparison to all the blessings God has graciously given. Even during our lowest moments, counting our blessings can remind us of the joy we have been given in Christ Jesus! I know sharing my own good things on a regular basis will keep me on my toes looking for the blessings that I'm taking for granted, and I can't wait to hear all of your good things as well! Let's take a few moments today to encourage each other with a joyful and thankful heart for all the good things in our lives. Here are mine:
The sweet lady at Subway who gave us a discount and a free cookie for Lorelei during a 9 hour drive. Sharing little jokes and laughing with husband. Hearing my baby girl mimic words and sounds. Sleeping in after a few days of having to get up way too early. Mexican cheese dip. Coffee (always). Finding something special I thought I'd lost. The very nice policeman who pulled us over because of a broken headlight (which we just had fixed several weeks ago!) and not only didn't give us a ticket, was very friendly at 7am. Looking forward to being with family to dedicate Lorelei on Mother's Day. Planning something fun for husband's 27th coming up!
I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys are celebrating too! :)
Don't forget, you have through Friday to enter the giveaway!
