  1. Thank you for the reminder that even in the messiness of life, God still gives us everything we need in the here and now. I’m always amazed how you come up with a list week after week of gratitudes, even when you’re feeling downhearted, Barbie. You inspire me! I pray all goes well for your daughter and grandson #2! Love and hugs to you!

  2. In the messiness and brokenness that life sometimes brings us, you still find gratitude for the gifts God has given you. I love that and know that He treasures each time you say “thank you”. Love you!

  3. “But then I close the computer and step away and realize that I have everything I need here and now.” Amen. Sometimes closing the computer and stepping away are two important steps to getting my contentment back….

  4. I’m always inspired by your gratitude list, Barbie! We do, indeed, have so much to be thankful for! Blessings on your week, my friend!

    • It’s been quite the journey. It’s not always easy (especially when I forget to write them down every day in a journal), but it’s getting easier. There is so much to be thankful for.

  5. Reading through your list of blessings, I love the strong voice that is coming through, Barbie.
    We’re in a similar stage of life — teens in the house, and older kids whose busy lives pull us in various directions with their celebrations and their needs. Glad that we can trust together for grace to be all that God wants us to be for the very wide range of hats we wear every day.

  6. Barbie,
    I often have to stay away from the internet and especially facebook because it brings out the covetous part of me that wants what others have. I want my family to all be smiling together. I want those adorable grandbabies. I want, I want, I want. Unfortunately Facebook panders to my discontent. I applaud you for keeping an ongoing list of what you are thankful for. I find when I get a case of the grumbles, it’s time to start counting my blessings and showing God gratitude for what I DO have. Thanks for the gentle nudge this am.!
    Bev xx
