July Gifts {Day Six}

3 gifts of enthusiasm??  Please tell me that they didn’t realize that Day 6 was going to fall on a Monday!  Or… maybe they did… sneaky, sneaky… making me be all enthusiastic and thankful on a Monday… 😉

Gotta confess that this morning I forgot about the gifts.  I forgot about the grace of thankfulness, and it showed.  Tempers short, voice loud, compassion waning.  Praise God that his mercies are new every morning, and also every afternoon.

So, here is my attempt at 3 Gifts of Enthusiasm!!!  (the triple exclamation mark shows enthusiasm, so you know I’m really into this)

1.  Monday Memes

There is another blogger I follow who talks honestly about some REAL things, but she also posts a lot of funny stuff.  I have to be honest, I get excited when I see the Monday Coffee Quote post pop up on my email because I know it will probably make me giggle.  So, in honor of My Pink Champagne Life, I went on a hunt for a Monday meme… and it was fun!  Dare I say I hunted, enthusiastically??? 😉

Yes to this today.  Some days certainly feel more like this than others!!  I don’t even know if this is scientifically accurate or whatever, but it’s funny!

2.  This girl plays doctor like it’s her real. life. job.  Don’t mess with her when she’s trying to find the pulse on your belly.  Watching her be so intent makes me smile.

3.  I’ve been writing a little today, and I love it.  I’m so thankful for this blog and for the encouragement I receive from others because of it. Beyond these hypothetical four walls, I also have the opportunity to share on the No Hands But Ours blog, which is humbling and a blessing.  I love that doing something I love to do is where the Lord has me during this season of my life.  Pure gift.

I guess it wasn’t that difficult after all, was it?  And I have to say, after searching for reasons to give thanks on this kinda-crazy-Monday, my heart has settled into a less frantic rhythm.
