All I Can Do

This song came on the radio today. I've heard it before, but today it sunk into my heart. More and more I find myself awakening to the reality that my life is truly beautiful.... a gift. One that I didn't earn or deserve....

All I Can Do- Mikeschair

I could write a love song
Tell You what I think you wanna hear
But it wouldn't be good enough, no
Yeah, I could try so hard
To give it everything I got
But I'm not ever gonna measure up

All I can do is thank You
For this life I never deserve
Wanna thank You for the grace
I know I don't have to earn
You love me, You love me
Your mercy is proof
All I can do is say thank You
Today all I can do is say thank you.... 

It would have been easy
But I'm glad You never walked away
'Cause Your love runs deep for me
And I see this beautiful world
And it brings tears to my eyes
And I think it's beautiful to be free

I know that it's Mercy that allows me to wake up each day with a chance to allow Him more room IN my everyday. The more I try to do things on my own (especially with parenting) the harder I find it. It's not until I slow down and notice all the little things I have in my life to be thankful for that I gain perspective.
And so, I continue to count....

#332. Cleaning the clutter
#338. Jumping over the cracks
#345. Frozen gummybears
#350. Dangling little legs while I carry her sleepy body to bed
#365. A quiet house
#401. Her giggle when I wrap her wet hair in a towel on top of her head
#402. Warranty for broken glasses
#430. Reading side by side
#442. Cake in the oven
#467. Hum of the dishwasher
#495. Toys strewn about
#501. Boys who respect
#506. Grass and bare fee
#515. Her wild curly hair
#528. How it takes a village
#537. Early christmas shopping
#539. Made up songs
#541. Anticipation for a week away- just the two of us
#544. Leaves dancing in the wind
#548. Playing grounders- not caring about the other parents watching
#551. His first powerpoint erased. Lessons learned.
#555. Kisses goodbye in the school drop off line

What are you thankful for this week?
