Grateful

I find myself very grateful today.

I'm grateful for my husband and family. Grateful for my friends and church family. I grateful for vacations, comfortable houses, and dependable income. I'm grateful for many things I often take for granted. I enjoy these things so much.

I'm also grateful for things I don't always see as a gift, and I don't always respond well to. I'm grateful for challenges, for discipline, for struggle, and for conflict. I'm grateful for my calling and gifts. I'm grateful for my weaknesses and my emotions. I'm grateful for those things that frustrate me. I'm grateful for the waiting. I'm grateful for the life lived in dependence on Him. Because these are the things that have made me the person that I am becoming.
