Sad....

Posted by Christina // 4 Replies

I interrupt our regularly scheduled post to take a moment to be thankful.

Thankful that I woke up today.  I woke up with a roof over my head, food in the pantry, water readily available, a choice of what shoes to wear, and most importantly…everyone I love woke up too.

All of this killing, the blatant disregard for life saddens my heart.  So many people in the world would give anything to have a fraction of what we don’t even take the time to be thankful for.

I won’t get into the politics.  I refuse to, because politics have nothing to do with it.  I just wanted to share a quote that I heard a few months ago that sort of changed my life. 

“What if we woke up today, with only what we thanked God for yesterday.”

I hope you will take a moment to be thankful for all the good in your life.

    Great quote. I usually fall asleep half-way through prayers so I’d be screwed. ha. I better start out with “Dear God, thank you for my Mom, the homemadeocean blog, Tim & Christina…” just in case I fall asleep quickly!

    I don’t mean to joke around about such a heavy topic but there’s crap all over the world, ya know? Gotta find some way to deal. I’m thankful you wrote this post and shared that quote and accepted (hopefully) my weirdo comment.

    This quote bounced around in my head all day yesterday and I found myself thinking about it as I said my prayers last night… what a game changer. Thanks for sharing.

      That is exactly what happened to me too! I heard it and it just sort of stuck with me. I am not a very religous person….but it just makes sense ya know. Now I say a thank you prayer every night.
