Thankful Thursday- and giveaway

Today... I have decided to recognize what I'm thankful for... maybe it will help me to remember and recognize how blessed I am.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 says:
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 

Today I am thankful for "the usual" (Salvation, Family, My church, a home, food, shelter, and water). These are the things... That never seem to go out of my mind... I am so blessed. Although I think it is so important to recognize our thankfulness for all of these very important (most important) things in our lives... I also need to recognize the little blessings... the gifts in our lives.

Recognizing the little things can sometimes be harder than the big ones... It forces us to find those little blessings... Those things that didn't have to be put in our lives... or day.... But for whatever reason... they were... and they are blessings. 

So today... here are the little blessings...  I am thankful for.
1. The birdies that woke me up with their sweet chirping.
2. My Cosmos flowers that just wont stop blooming this spring.
3. My blog readers :) You are the best! thank you so much... P.S. Because I am so thankful for you...there is a giveaway at the bottom of this blog today from my Shop :)
4. Dresses... pretty pretty dresses that have lace or eyelet or ruffles. 
5. High heals... yeah... I can't wear them right now... (Confession...I have been putting them on while I'm sitting... or laying down ... and just looking at them... kinda... pathetic... ha ha!)... but... ah... I love heels.

So...  here's the challenge... wanna join me? comment with 5 little blessings you are thankful for and you will be entered in to win... This little zippered pouch! Perfect for... well anything :) It's 5 inches high and 8 inches wide. And perfect for summer :) 
So... Just leave your name and the 5 things you are thankful for... and you will be entered to win this handmade-by-me zippered pouch :) Winner will be chosen and announced at random... On THIS Saturday Morning... 

 Don't be shy... yeah... YOU... I'm talking to you :) enter in to win! You have  a much better chance of winning this than the lottery! and if you are a boy... you can give it to your sister... or your mom... or... you can have a fabulous bag to give to your girlfriend... so... don't be shy! I really really want to hear what you are thankful for :) So please... Comment :) ok... have I persuaded you yet? ha ha :) oh... and you can tell your friends :) My goal is to have 25 entries :) and... sorry... you can only enter once. 


I can't wait to hear the little blessings you are thankful for :)

9 hours sleep
a nutritious dinner
a sunny day
getting to check a few things off my to-do list
finding my favorite travel mug at work
