Grateful Heart Monday

I don't know about you friends, but grateful is not the word I'd use to describe myself on Monday mornings. Weekends go to fast, and Mondays are here before we know it. I definitely need a dose of gratefulness today, and every day. So lets start this Monday out grateful.

I am grateful for:

Good jobs that provide us with a stable income, health benefits and some time off to play

The simple pleasures of a clean home, candles burning, and new sheets on the bed

A lazy Saturday spent with coffee and books in bed

My husband who invests in our marriage

The INCREDIBLE thing I won on the radio on Friday: Front Row tickets to see Lady Antebellum on Wednesday with a limo ride to dinner and the concert, AND backstage passes to meet Lady A. Lady A is my favorite band EVER, and we even danced to one of their songs, "When You Got A Good Thing" for our first dance. I seriously never win anything, and I won this Friday and couldn't be more excited!

What are you grateful for today?

  6. That's so exciting! :) I'm also grateful for a job that allows us to have a home and cars that run. I'm grateful for a puppy who loves to snuggle and warm coffee in the mornings. I'm grateful for sunshine and warmer temperatures. Focusing on the positives makes everything seem so much better. :)

  9. Great post and an even better reminder! I'm not one to buy into that whole "ugh, it's Monday" thing. Start off with a bad attitude and you're just asking for an unnecessary bad day!

    This morning, I'm grateful for friends who share my obsession with Chick-Fil-A that result in a biweekly lunch date. I'm grateful for Christian's safe return from his weekend getaway and getting to spend quality time with him. And I'm grateful for cats. Always.

  10. Congrats on winning those tickets--that's incredible! Lady A is an incredible band, they're really good live, too! You'll love the concert. Today I am thankful for electricity, 86% of my area was without power this weekend, by the grace of God we were in that 14% that had it.
