Trying for a Thankful Thursday

No matter how tired I am, I am thankful for my family!

This morning when the alarm went off I was in the middle of a dream.  I don't remember the dream, but I always start shaking all over when I'm woken up during one, and I have to work hard to turn off the alarm without dropping it!  I was not excited to get up.  I have a mild headache and a lot of work to do.  I was a bit out of it and after my prayer I tried to find my glasses and couldn't.  I didn't realize until I left my room that they were already on my face!

My morning prayer was not long.  I remembered it was thankful Thursday, and so I tried to just be thankful.  It is really hard to feel thankful some mornings, but I did my best, and I promised to try to be grateful today, and so I will.

Today is Gethsemane day in Easter week, which is a good reminder of all I have to be thankful for.  Jesus loves me.  He paid for my sins so I can repent.  He understands hard days and sends comfort.  He made it so that I can be with my family forever.  He conquered sin, and death.  I am thankful for Jesus, and for thankful Thursdays to remind me to look for the good in the day, and to open my eyes to the pile of blessings that I have.

It's crazy waking up from a sound dream - even though they are hard to remember they still have an effect on you just like what happened to you. Sometimes I have to sit for a minute before getting out of be just to gather myself and realize I was only dreaming. I have many times wondered where my glasses are only to find them on my face - makes me laugh at myself every time. Once I was talking to my sister on my cell phone then panicked because I didn't know where it was - even my sister was trying to help me retract my steps then I finally clued in, I was talking on it - my sister and I got a huge laugh out of that one.

I always enjoy your posts, and your comments on my blog - thank you!
Take care!!
