Our lives are busy. It doesn’t matter if we work inside or outside of the home. It doesn’t matter if we have ten kids or no kids. Our lives are just plain busy. I mean, think about it. Even when we’re on vacation, we still spend a good deal of time planning our activities so as to make the absolute most of our time away from the real world. I’m not saying that busy=bad, but I do think that a lot of our busy-ness clouds our view and we miss out on what’s truly important in life.
It’s the little things that are so easy to miss when we’re running around taking care of everything and everyone. Those same little things, though, can make all the difference in the world if we allow them to stay in the forefront of our mind. We’ve all seen the commercials on TV that show a person on the street doing a small act of kindness, then the recipient of that kind act shows kindness to someone else, and so on. I think that a thankful heart can spread just as easily as a kind act, and that was the drive behind me writing this post.
Every Thursday, I will share with you something that I am thankful for. It may be something big, but more often than not, it will probably be a small thing that would otherwise be easy to overlook. My hope is that I will write my Thankful Heart Thursday posts in a way that will resonate with you in your own lives. I will ask you at the end of each post to please comment back, sharing with me something that you are thankful for at that moment.
I’m looking forward to connecting with you over the next many weeks and watching as our thankfulness grows!
So, for today, I am thankful for the opportunity to share my thankful heart with you, our readers, and I look forward to you sharing with me as well! What are you thankful for today?
