On a recent Saturday morning, I’d just finished making breakfast for the family. I was standing at my kitchen sink getting ready to do dishes. (So far, it doesn’t sound very exciting, does it?)
That’s kind of what I was feeling, too. Dishes. Again? Woohoo. (Said with intense sarcasm.)
And that’s when it HIT ME!
Ashtyn’s turned 15 this month. She’s growing up SO fast! Before long, Austin and Morgan will be fixing meals for their OWN kids, at their own house. God only knows how many more breakfasts that I’ll get to make for MY family!
What was I THINKING?
I was grumbling and complaining on the inside when, honestly, I should’ve been saying:
· Thank God, that David and I still love being together!
· What a privilege, that we have these great children!
· How fantastic, that they are so happy and healthy!
· What an honor, that our kids still want to hang out with us!
God, I’m sorry for taking for granted the seemingly normal and everyday BLESSINGS that I’m surrounded with.
None of us knows, exactly, how many more family breakfasts we’ll get to make in our own kitchens.
But, I do know this; in the big scheme of things, it will never seem like ENOUGH!
Now it’s your turn. Which of God’s blessings have you taken for granted or even grumbled about? Share here, and let’s be thankful together!
