Gratitude: Day 5


This is the one that I am currently reading... Well actually re-reading. I started it before the girls were born, but was not able to finish. So I am starting it over again. That's okay... it's THAT good.


This particular book makes me grateful for many things. I get to leave "my life" for just a little while when I read it. I am able to travel to a different time and see things from someone else's point of view, and I love that. But it also does more than that. Right now.... It makes me thankful that:

1. I am a woman born into a time that "I" have a say what happens in my life.

2. I have control over what happens to "my" body... most of the time... pregnancy was a doozie!

3. My thoughts and values are just as valid as my husbands.

4. My children have good medical care

5. Indoor plumbing... Hot showers... Central heating and air... Electricity...

I am so grateful for these things, and reading books like this help me realize this even more than I ever knew.
