I’ve been in a funk all week. Not a serious funk. Just a little bit of an unmotivated, imbalanced, life is crazy kind of funk. The problem with that is that you’re (I’m) just looking at the negative stuff.

I’m seeing the messy house, the disobedient children, the inability to concentrate and focus and get things done. Everything just feels “wonky.”

But I read something inspiring late last night (which was good because yesterday evening was particularly bad) so I’m throwing off the funk and donning a positive attitude. For starters, I’m going to take a close look at all the things I have to be thankful for today:

  • Nice weather
  • A new day, a fresh start
  • A husband who loves me
  • 3 great children
  • The opportunity and ability to serve my family
  • Being able to stay home with my kids
  • Homemade goodies in the fridge
  • Fresh coffee
  • Gift-shopping for Little Prince’s 3rd Bday tomorrow.
  • Family & Friends
  • Great music
  • My Savior and my faith
  • The hope of a new day and fresh start tomorrow

How can you have a funky day when you start off like that??

God bless you today!

Thankful Thursday is hosted by Grace Alone (formerly known as Sting My Heart!).

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
