Reasons I’m Thankful

I’m 33 today.

Here are 20 Quick Reasons I’m thankful today.

  1. I woke up and did 33 push-ups. (I’m huge. Hulk Smash)
  2. I woke up beside the most beautiful woman in the world. I love you Megan.
  3. I woke up to a happy birthday phone call from my mom, who I love so much! (Some years, it’s a song, some years it’s a rap.)
  4. I woke up to my son and daughter giving me hugs and wishing me happy birthday.
  5. I hit up Starbucks with my dad. (They know him by name there…) White. Chocolate. Mocha. Boom.
  6. I woke up to get ready and head to serve at New Life Church. I love my church! I love what I do!
  7. I wore jeans to work. (PTL…a few years back I was all in shirts and ties)
  8. I have awesome In-Laws who put in a POOL at my house, that I’ll be swimming in this afternoon.
  9. I woke up knowing that Jesus is my Lord, I’m forgiven, I’ve got direction, I’ve got God’s Love and approval in my life.
  10. I got to facetime with my little sister and my crazy fun nephews.
  11. I’ve been flooded with tons of happy birthday wishes on facebook. 🙂
  12. At 33 I don’t have it all figured out, and I’m wise enough to know now that it’s ok.
  13. I get to worship with my church family tonight!
  14. I opened presents a day early. My wife is so sweet, she couldn’t wait to give me my birthday presents.
  15. There’s chocolate cake waiting for me at home.
  16. At 33 I know what I’m called to do and what I’m not called to do. Both matter.
  17. 33 is definitely not 23, but instead of just raw energy, I now have experience and wisdom to go with my passion. That’s a much better combo.
  18. I’m confident in who I am. My calling as a husband and as a father are the most important things in my life.
  19. I can still eat Doritos and Swiss Cake Rolls at midnight! DON’T HATE.
  20. I’m thankful to be living my life, serving my God and doing it all with my wonderful family.
