Daily Thanksgiving

Last week I shared that I am going to make an effort to change my attitude and find something in every day that I can and should be thankful about. (If you missed this the first time and you're interested, you can read it here.)

I was asked if I would be sharing what I am thankful for each day. Sure I will. You all can hold me accountable.

Here's my list to date.

Friday - Laughter. We attended a 40th bday party for a friend. There was much laughing.

Saturday - The moon. On our way home from the movies one of our girls mentioned how big, bright and close the moon was. If you haven't looked at it in a while, check it out tonight.

Sunday - Sunny autumn weather and the aroma of bread baking in the oven. The early part of today was beautiful and I took advantage of it to get the last of our outdoor winterizing done. When I was done outside and the sun disappeared, I made 2 loaves of cinnamon bread. Can you say YUMMY?

I'm thinking you need to share your recipe for the bread.

Nancy,

Thanks for visiting and commenting at my blog. You mentioned having hypoglycemia... from what I have found and been researching the best thing to stabilize blood sugar is to cut out most carbs (besides vegetables and some fruits) and eat plenty of protein and healthy fat (coconut oil, butter and olive oil). Here is a link regarding diabetes and blood sugar. While you don't have diabetes, there is a section on hypo and hyperglycemia that are good to read:

Also if you peruse the weston a price site you will find some great ideas for healthy foods and you can even search for blood sugar, hypoglycemia, etc. I know that good beef can be expensive, but I can get grassfed for $2.99/lb (burger) so that's what I always get and we stretch it with beans and veggies. I have found that cutting back in other areas (eating out, no TV, etc) allows us a little bit more for healthy foods.

HTH,
Shannon

The pastor at the chuch that we attend challenged us to also give thanks for those things in our lives which we are not happy with, the struggles we may be experiencing, and the frustrations we encounter. Because, like you said, from these tribulations a gift is given. It may seem odd at the time, but I think even more a show of faith - to be thankful for something that we don't see or understand yet.
