Forgetting to be Thankful For

Holy moly, I seriously can not believe that we are already into mid February.

The past few weeks have been a very busy season for me, perhaps they have been for you too. 

To be completely honest, I have STRUGGLED with being thankful lately. 

Maybe you are in the same boat. 

It really was not until I sat down to write this article that I realized how very little I have been thanking God for recently. 

Sometimes, life just gets busy. At the end of the day, you and I are both human and we will make mistakes along the way. We might forget to be thankful in all circumstances. We might forget to encourage others as much as we would like to. We might not always be as faithful as we hoped we would be. But guess what? That is where grace comes in.

Now, we can sit here and beat ourselves up over this lack of gratitude or we can pick up our boot straps and turn our little frown around, right?

Can we just do that together, if you are feeling like you have jumped off of the grateful train, I would encourage you to take a second to write down 5 things you are super glad are in your life. READY, SET, GO. 

Whether it is gratitude, faithfulness, encouragement, kind words, or anything else that you have been struggling with, please, please, please, do not count yourself out. Remember your worth and let yourself grow a little more each day.
