MMM- Enough already...Be thankful... ya ingrate...

I have been down in the dumps, depressed, cup half empty, whiny, and just plain miserable. I'd say ask my hubby and kids...but let's not and say we did. This morning at about 5:16...God kicked my little ungrateful buns...and boy, was it over do. I'm now very motivated to be thankful and be done with this pity party I've been sickly enjoying.

Some thankfuls to start it off...

My LoverBrains has a job, he enjoys his job (almost to hobby proportions), and his job allows me to stay home with my sweet boobahs. Praise God!

My children are beautiful and intelligent with the smarts to be able to push every button MomE has...PTL! Even when they are sick...we are blessed with health insurance so I can take them to a wonderful Dr. I love and trust who helps them get better. God is tenderizing their hearts to Himself even now...and that is most precious! Praise God!

My house regained some semblance of order this weekend. The LoverBrains took me out for dinner sans kids. The weather has been gorgeous...and today looks beautiful! Praise God!

I have no excuses...for being down in the dumps. So, enough already...Be thankful...ya ingrate! I'm motivated to praise Him because He doesn't give me what I deserve (eternal death) but blesses me beyond measure (eternal life, His love). His grace is more than sufficient!!!

PREACH IT, GIRLFRIEND!!! You are absolutely right, and that was what the sermon was about this Sunday... God allows circumstances in our lives to drive us to our knees so we can know God is more than enough. HE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH! PTL!!!!
P.S. Glad you're "back to Bobbi" agian! : )

I so utterly, completely understand... finding the good in the days does help... some days we have to push through the crap.

Wonderful post! Sometimes we just have to take ourselves by the scruff of the neck and give ourselves a good shake!

Hope you have a blessed week!

PTL is right, and thank you for sharing from your heart. I need these kicks in the pants every so often, more than I like to admit.

I got tickled though when I read the post title.

Missed you at MTO on last Friday. I've been craving your brownies. Why oh why did you have to bring those things into my life!! I would say send me the recipe, but I may show up 200 pounds heavier to the next MTO. :-) Oh heck, send me the recipe!!!!!
