Celebration Tuesday

Today celebrate even the smallest success. Write down everything you did today. I know you can find one thing to be thankful for. Hmm. You’ve written your list and you don’t see anything to celebrate.  Here are a few ideas:

Did you do something many people can’t do? I’ll bet you did. Celebrate being able to do what others would give their eye teeth to be able to do.

Did you find getting up easier than the hardest day in your life to get up? For instance, the day you were having your Biology final exam and you had to take care of your baby brother so you didn’t get a chance to study and you were up all night. Celebrate and be thankful that you have your health and were able to help someone. Life is precious. Rejoice and celebrate your life.

Do you have more money in the bank today than you did on the day you didn’t have enough money to buy a box of popcorn at the movies? Celebrate and be thankful for the money you have now.

Were you able to drive a car to work? If not, did a friend take you to work? If not, did you take the bus? If not, do you have a job? Celebrate and be thankful for what you have.

Do you have shoes to wear? Celebrate.

Today you and I have a choice to decide to feel sorry for ourselves or to celebrate being who were are! I choose to celebrate!  

Balloons! Ice Water to drink. A fancy party hat made and sprinkled with glue and glitter on your head with the letters of your name printed in fancy format.  Hang a price tag like Minnie Pearl used to and write the word  Priceless on the price tag. Celebrate.

God made you to enjoy your life loving him and serving him and his people. You are loved and prayed for by me and others.

Have a great celebration Tuesday.

  1. Thank you for this post! I have a lot to be thankful for, it’s true! I need to “count my many blessings”, don’t I? 🙂



    • Dear Donna, I think that being grateful for what we have brings us an abundance of what we need and want. God blesses us when we are thankful to him. Every day he gives us good surprise blessings. If we are focused on the negative, we might miss noticing them. If we are fearful about a bee stinging us, we might fail to see how it works tirelessly to pollinate the flowers that give us beauty and the plants that give us food to eat.

      You are a positive-minded lady. You lovingly care for your husband and your children. You give thanks to God. I admire you. You put a smile on God’s face.
