I Am Grateful


Hi My Friends,

Today I am linking up with Sarah. She has started this link up called I am grateful. Now my Wednesday posts are sometimes very scattered, and sometimes missed. I hadn’t even planned on posting today. However, I am really excited about this link up, and I am definitely going to do my best now to make sure I am linking up every week!

Before I dive right in I want to talk about Sarah’s blog. I really find her inspiring, and her posts are so interesting to read. She really makes me think. Now being me, and always seeming to be trying to catch up on my reading, I was a few posts behind. Today I read her post Positivity…and a question?. I really related to this post, because I am not one to always look at the bright side of life. My sister will sometimes say to me goodness Mariah I don’t try and find the bad in people. Which sadly, can be true abut me. I will not always try to look at the good but rather the bad. If you can follow my Pride and Prejudice reference I am more Elizabeth than Jane.

So comes to this link up. God has blessed me in so many ways in life, and I am constantly trying to remember that and to be thankful for all the things I have. I know that by thanking Him more and by realizing the small things so comes to us more joy. That is then what I am striving to do. It is always what I believe Sarah is trying to do as well. As the saying goes “Misery loves company” and I know that it I a blessing to know that I am not alone in striving to find Christ’s joy. So stay tuned as I say what I am grateful for every week, and be patient with me. I am sure that in the beginning they may be a home, food..blah blah blah. But no matter what I am thankful, and that is the point!

I am going to dive in to this link up, and you all should finish reading and then go check Sarah out!

I am grateful for…
My family. I know that this one is the top thing that I take for granted. And I think that we all do. The people we care for and love the most are the ones we don’t always tell that too. However, my parents and sister are my life. I love them completely, and I don’t know where I would be with out them. My parents provide for me and take care of us. We have never gone without, and they do everything out of love.
A warm beverage. I love coffee, and I love tea. I really should live in England because tea time is my favorite! However, I know that in my other places having clean water is an amenity let alone having heated water. So I am thankful for the comfort that holding a warm drink brings.
