Thankful Thursday

I Tim.6: 6 Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and we can take nothing out of it.

Lately I have been constantly asking myself...."Am I content?" Not contentment with what I have, but with who I am. Am I content being wife? Am I content being a mother? Am I content to fold that pile of laundry? Am I content to wash another dirty dish? You know what I am talking about. Then I read a verse like this and I am reminded that even what I am has been given to me by God. When I start focusing on what I am thankful for, I forget that I even had a reason to not be content. So today I am making a list of what I am thankful for.

Thankful for the little walk I took outside with my daughter.

Thankful for Jay and his hard work ethic.

Thankful for such great neighbors.

Thankful for all the wonderful friendships I have.

Thankful that I have clothes to fold and dishes to eat off of.

Thankful that I am a mother.

...and yes, thankful to be a wife.
