Attitude of Gratitude Award

I love receiving and giving blog awards! Tanya at Miller Racing Family is a sweet, genuine friend. She always posts yummy recipes and a lot more.... so check her blog out today! Tanya you made my day! She gave me an award! I feel so honored! This is the "An Attitude of Gratitude” award for showing a grateful attitude within my posts. Since it's a gratitude award I thought I would write a few things I am thankful for today. I can have an attitude of gratitude when I am not focused on the negative.

I'm thankful for the nice weather we have had all week. 70-80 degrees...lovely!

I'm thankful for my husband who is tilling more of the garden as I type.
More seeds going in tomorrow!

I'm thankful for precious moments in the day that make all the negative rush away!

Here is an example of a precious moment from today!

The front of the card says,"Momy warms are body...I LOVE MY MOM!

The inside of the card says, "I Love my momy. She is a good cook. I love her so much I can't stand it!" (Well said Cameron....Mommy loves you all the way to heaven and back!) Don't you just love when your kids give you something from their heart! sniff, sniff!

I'm thankful for a forgiving, loving, awesome God we have!

I'm thankful for all my blogging friends. Thanks for making me smile, laugh, and grow. You inspire me. Thank you!

I'm thankful for my family. I'm thankful for those who knew my dad and stepped up to leave a comment on my 'Priceless Coin' post with great memories I will cherish!

So here she is....isn't she lovely?

When life gives you lemons....make lemonade!

So there are a few rules to this award:
1.Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show an attitude of gratitude
3. Link to your nominees within your post
4.Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received this award
5.Share the love and link to this post and the person who nominated you for the award.
Tell us how you've come to have an attitude of gratitude.

Many of you may have received this award already (I checked), but I am so honored and grateful to give and receive this wonderful award!

What are you grateful for? Let's all be grateful for our family, and spend some quality time together this weekend! Have a blessed weekend!

Thank you SO much for the award! You are so sweet!

And can I just say, that you have totally blessed my heart by posting about that Kari Jobe. I LOVE that song. I haven't heard it in a couple months {I was listening to this song constantly, along with a bunch of other great worship songs, after the miscarriage}. My soul is so flooded.

Thank you for sharing that!! I'm listening to it right now, along with the rest of my family, hanging out, coloring, playing, being on the computer together. :)

Have a great weekend!!

Rhonda, I am so honored to recieve this award. I will be doing a post on my blog Hopeful Sunday evening. I am in bed with pneumonia right now. I haven't felt this bad in a while. I have tried to stay down and most of my post where scheduled ahead of time when I was feeling better. I just took my breathing treatment and cried awhile knowing I had to cancel my Chruch retreat trip to Branson for Sunday evening. But God knows best and I'm sure it is for a reason. I checked my emails and found your sweet award and just had to thank you for it.
