  1. It’s all about perception, isn’t it – how we perceive the world around us?! Fantastic post – thank you for linking with Ultimate Moms!

      Thank you, Donna! Praise God that it has blessed you.

  2. Angela, this is so beautiful — every moment is a blessing, so important to hear. I can’t believe I haven’t read the book yet!! I love Ann’s blog and I have to read it –heading to the library later ♥

      Thanks so much, Amy! Yes, you need to read this book! Hope you picked it up at the library! Let me know how you like it.

    I love your heart sweet friend! I miss you. Isn’t that funny!? We’ve never met in person, but I miss you. I feel like this move has swallowed me and I haven’t been able to connect, email, and read my favorite blogs because of it. This was such a great post for me to read today. So encouraging! I can so relate about change and liking a plan as being the oldest girl out of nine. I wish we could go to one of these blog conferences and hang out a whole weekend! Some day. I read One Thousand Gifts last year. Amazing book-I think I need to go back and reread it now. Hang in there friend! We can stand in the gap with each other-transitioning and lifting each other in prayer! Love you!

      Erica!! I know–I miss you, too! It is funny, but I do feel like I know you. Let’s schedule a blog conference together sometime this year…I would love that! Yes, I’m sure the move has been challenging. We’ll hopefully be moving this summer, so I have that to look forward to.

      I’m so glad this was an encouragement to you…I felt God tugging at my heart to share. Thank you for being a great friend and for praying for us! I will be praying for you- love you too, friend!

  4. Yes, looking for God’s gifts tucked into even the most difficult of seasons is such a wonderful blessing. It’s helped me stay sane amidst all of the changes we’ve had in recent years with my husbands career as well.

      Great to hear that it helped you. Thanks for sharing! I’ve loved your 10 day series so far–great job!

    Angela – thank you for this post. I also read 1,000 Gifts and took so much away from it. I have the 1,000 Gifts app that I utilize, but it has been a few weeks since I have remembered to sit down and intentionally input my thankfuls into it. We also keep a family gratitude journal that we write in after our evening meal. I am trying to cultivate an attitude of gratefulness in my children as well – our society can sometimes make that difficult with all that is available to us. thank you for the reminder to put on gratefulness today and remove the attitude of selfishness that can so easily creep in at times.

    1. Teaching Mama says:

      Ooh I should get that app. That would be an easy way to keep track of my thoughts. I love that you are trying to cultivate gratitude in your children–something I need to do as they get older. Thank you for your kind words, Susan!

  6. Angela I so agree with your message today. Gratitude, God deserves it for all He gives. I like when we don’t show gratitude we are saying God is not enough or His way is not perfect. I’m praying for your move. Will miss you but will keep tract through Teaching Mama. You know I’m beyond having little ones around but being a former teacher I love your blog. God bless

    1. Teaching Mama says:

      Oh my, it is so true that when we don’t show gratitude, we are saying God is not enough. Thank you for your prayers! You are so sweet.

  7. What a blessing – thank you so much for sharing. Being thankful is a great way to handle ‘life’. The quote was something I needed this morning. Love n prayers!

    1. Teaching Mama says:

      Thank you! 🙂 I love that quote too…I’ve been pondering on that a lot lately. Hope all is well!
