What Are Your Five?

IMG_2894Sometimes I don’t feel like being grateful. Sorry, but it’s true.

But it’s hard to stay that way too long if I am disciplined enough to sit down and think about all the things I have to be thankful for.


  • The week before recovery week at the gym being so much fun
  • Recovery week 🙂
  • The kids excitement as we sit down to do a craft. (A holiday tradition at the Carlson house. We do 1 craft a week for the 4 weeks leading up to Christmas. Some of them are pictured in this post)
  • Our church life group that meets Sunday afternoons
  • That I am on the downside of this cold. 10 days is enough! 🙂

What about you? Ever have trouble being grateful? I dare you to sit down and send me 5 (or even just 1)!
