Gratitude Journal : Entry 2

Another week has passed. I didn’t get anyone joining in last week on my gratitude journal posts. Clearly this new blog has to try harder to get some followers. That’s ok…it took me years to get followers at “Mommy Only Has 2 Hands”. Anyway, on to today’s post.  What I’m grateful for. 


1. My husband: I am truly grateful for him. For his friendship, his knowledge, the way he provides for our family, his humor, his love, his dedication toward things. Once he sets a goal, he usually finishes it. He’s not one that easily gives up. He’s a great father to our children and on this father’s day I know that there’s not enough I can do to show my gratitude for him in my life. I love him. 

2. “I love you’s” from my kids:  I will randomly get an “I love you from both my three and six year old and I tell you they always fill my heart. It means that my kids listen when I tell them I love them, and they are recipricating the way they know how. They are showing their love and I love that I can teach them what it means to love. 

3. Having two reliable vehicles: I remember back in collage, I had an old 1980’s Honda Civic and I lost two tires half way between Saffard AZ and Globe and there was no establishments for at least fifty miles. I was scared and barely had cell phone service, but I was able to call my “then boyfriend” for help all the way from Phoenix. He called me a tow truck and I got to Globe where I had to use a credit card to put two new tires on my car. At that time, I had no established credit, so I practically used my whole credit card balance just for the tires, but I was grateful to have that transportation.  So to this day, I will always be grateful for reliable transportation. 

4. I am grateful for lazy days: Today is Sunday and while I have been out grabbing things for the family, and picked some weeds, I’ve been able to catch a chapter in the book I’m reading, write this post and be a little lazy today.

5.  I am grateful for the comforts I have in my life: For warm blankets and beds, a roof over my head, food in stomach any time I’m hungry. I know that people everywhere are suffereing and don’t have these things, so I need to always remember never to take these things for granted, to always know my blessings and to bless others with common comforts like this whenever I can.

  1. I don’t stop and think about what I’m grateful for enough. With nature, I do, but with everyday things in life not so much. I need to make a point of that!

  2. Lovely post! I want to start my weekly blogging with something like this. Thanks for the inspiration.

    For a start, I am grateful we found a new helper so quick I am immensely relieved.

  3. I often forget how lucky I am to have everything I have. I am grateful for the healthly, loving family that I wake up to every day!

  4. Great list! Its so important to stop and think about what you are grateful for, I know I need to do it more! Thanks for the reminder 🙂

  5. Hi Heather – thanks for visiting my blog at Vintage Mama’s Cottage. I see that you are doing a weekly link up with your Gratitude Journal posts. Great idea! Would love to join you on this project. Keep me posted and I’ll try to get back over here to link up! Nina @ vintage Mama’s Cottage

  6. I am grateful to be alive. God saved my life when I was being torn apart by a dog – there was no one else there on that farm that day – just me, the dogs and God.
    There was no wind to shut that dog in the pen, and the wind can’t turn a latch.
    I am so grateful to be alive, and for the healing miracles that came after the attack.

    1. Suzanne, wow! What a crazy horrible thing to happen to you! Yes it does sound like what happened was a miracle and that God was surely there right when you needed Him!
