1000 gifts: Day 27

Oh good grief! I've been a little lazy. I'm getting into this habit where I think of things to be greatful for at work, and then I can't write, and I forget, or I get to this "oh I'll do it in five minutes" an then five minutes never comes.

Number 66 is my favorite right now. Sometimes my prayers are really small, and for seemingly unimportant things, but I wonder if those are the ones that God uses to "nudge" me with. Often I'll pray for the rain to stop or slow down so I can get to work without getting drenched. He did this for me last week. The rain slowed enough for me to go wait for my ride to work and I didn't get drenched. Wednesday's night shift at work was rough. Everyone was cranky with each other and taking out their frustrations on each other. I prayed for this past nights shift to be better, and although the line didn't always run great, everyone was in a better mood. That's an answered prayer to me. It was a good night.

1000 gifts: Day 13

Whoops, I missed some time.

It's funny because today I'm not really in the mood to write this blog. I had an incredibly frustrating night at work, caused mainly by one bad apple who shall remain nameless. I don't know why I let it get to me so much, but it did. I was frustrated. Now, I have been searching things to be thankful for. For now, it's just a few, but here they are nonetheless

53. Awesome co workers
54. Crock pot
55. Drumstick McFlurry at 1am
56. Bible verse of the day
57. Chamomile tea
58. Melatonin
59. A full days sleep

So, my things are few. I'm not sure really how I feel about that. I feel like there should be more, but at the same time, I am starting to have trouble....finding inspiration I guess. Or maybe it's just that I'm letting my mood cloud my vision. Probably why I should really stay focused on the task at hand anyways.

Maybe I'll have some more when I get up...If you're joining me on this gratefulness journey, I hope you're doing better than I am. :)
