A sweet friend from teaching days in Haiti does Thankful Thursday. She inspires me to focus more on the things we are grateful for, because there is always much, even when life is painful.
I am thankful for minutes at the morning bus stop with my big kids.
I am thankful for minutes at the afternoon bus stop with my littlest.
I am thankful for what overcommitment teaches me about myself.
I am thankful for the opportunity to make changes.
I am thankful for a God of mercy and grace.
"We do not make requests of you because we are righteous,
but because of your great mercy." Daniel 9:18b
