Gratitude Sunday Series Guest Blogger: Stephanie J

Hey People,

This week I am really pleased to present our next guest blogger...Stephanie. I love her blog and once you've read her post, please go and check out her amazing blog. She is super fun! :D

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Friends!
It's Stephanie @ Stephanie & Such and I am thrilled Lisa asked me to participate in Gratitude Sunday. Why? Because sometimes I don't count my blessings enough. I focus on the negatives and forget to remember everything I DO have going for me. Not only that, Sunday is my favourite day for reflection. So fancy that, that today is Sunday! So thanks Lisa for letting me share the things I am grateful for!

On of my favourite quotes (okay actually just google it. But is it my NEW favourite quote) says,
"Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it"
- William Ward -

Awesome right?
Well, you ready? Huh Huh?
Here you go :D

1. Health. Now that I am an adult (when did this happen?) I realise how important it is to stay healthy. And what blessing it is to have a healthy body! Life is good.

2. Mother Nature. I am such an outdoors girl and could probably go on about this topic for a while.

3. Family! My parents always taught us that family is #1 and no matter what they will always be there. I am so grateful they implemented this into us kids, because my siblings are my best friends!

4. Going off the last one: My parents are THE best. I am obsessed with them. They will drop everything for me. It is such a blessing to know at the end of each day that they love me and want the best for me.

5. Kids! Umm hello, I am a kid lover. My nieces make me feel so important and so cool (Instant self esteem booster). Love them.


6. Work. Wow, did I just say that? But seriously. I am grateful that I have a job. I am so much happier in this new environment that I am working in, I am actually happy and excited to go to work! When I was in Washington, I didn't love my job. It was a hassle. People were rude and snoody. Here in Utah though? It is seriously awesome. I love everyone I work with and have so much fun every day.

7. Diet Coke! Yep. It's the simple things people.

8. My younger brother Scottie! This kid is serving a two year mission for our church in San Fernando, California (where a lot of celebs live!!) hoping to bring people closer to God. He is having a blast, and has reminded me that religion is an exciting thing! And I love this picture of him because missionaries are often seen riding their bikes!


9. America. So cliche, but so true. It amazes me that people do not live in such a privileged country as we do.

10. Technology. Although it can be evil, the internet can be a beautiful thing. It can be uplifting and inspiring.

11. Chick-Fil-A. World's best fast food (basically the fries have the trump card).

12. TV: ANything involving the Kardashian's (sad I missed Khloe's Vegas party), Gossip Girl, Modern Family, Lost and Dateline.

13. My Straightener. See this post.

14. My bed. No joke. So cozy. I get so excited to jump in it at night! Who doesn't love a good nights rest??

15. Road trips! I love seeing new places and faces. Wanna go on one? I am DOWN.

16. Church. I love going to church each week to be reminded of the things that matter most.

Do you like how my list got shorter and shorter? Ha ha. But still, I was glad I did it. My life is great! and sometimes I need a good little reminder. Wether it's in my journal or on my blog, I am totally participating in Gratitude Sunday from now on and YOU should too!

What are YOU grateful for??

Thanks Lisa! You are the best! Can't wait to read next Sunday's post!!

- Trials...they wouldn't be called that if they weren't difficult.
- Camp outs in the lounge room
- Hugs :D

Thanks Lisa for letting me apart of this! You are awesome. Such a healthy reminder for us all to take a few minutes to write what we are grateful for.

You are awesome! Hope Austrailia is warm and sunny :)
