An Attitude Adjustment

I bought this THANKFUL board
from a friend this weekend while I was home.

Oops!  Crooked! 
Oh well, that can be adjusted.

Kinda like my attitude, 
sometimes it needs a little adjustment.

I pulled out my JOY jar again. 

An attitude of gratitude sometimes
requires changing our perspective, 
looking with eyes of thanksgiving
at all that God has given us.

Don't we all have so much to be grateful for?

Right smack in front of the toilet!
I think I'll just sit here and think about it for a while.

With a Heart of Thanksgiving, 



  1. Thanks for a chuckle this morning Bonnie!! This has been a hard week as I had to attend the funeral of a friend who died after a three year cancer battle. We should be thankful for each day...I need reminding as well. And I have to add that when I worked as a nurse, one head nurse put all the important memos on the bathroom door so we would all see

  2. Well that is just about the most perfect place for it! I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about my Grateful Jar that sits ingored on my kitchen counter. I should be ashamed of myself ...and I am. Thank you for this reminder at this VERY moment in my life.

  3. LOL- A perfect place to "sit and ponder". What a cute board that is. I am back and happy to be here visiting again! xo Diana

  4. Bonnie, I really appreciated this post today. Some days we are just in a funk, and your wise words made me feel better today, thank you. Your thankful board is very nice, and the pictures on it are even more special.

    Happy October, my friend.

    love, ~Sheri

  5. Too cute! Love it in the bathroom. It is where we do our best thinking....and maybe praying!

  6. Great post and such a wonderful place for a gratitude board. Enjoy your weekend!

  7. That's the perfect place for it! That board is cute and we can all use a reminder of how blessed we are.

  8. Too it. Yeah, I need an attitude adjustment as well...and my son is getting one as I write this from his dad. sigh...never ending.

  9. Bonnie, we all need an attitude adjustment from time to time. I keep a gratitude journal and it really makes such a positive difference for me. When I get away from my devotionals and spending time with God, everything seems to go south. Perfect place for your reminder! :)


  10. I love it and isn't it in a perfect place to ponder??? I have a poster just right in front of my 'seat' and I read it every single day.

  11. Good place to ponder blessings! I love the idea.

  12. Always good to have a reminder to be thankful! xx

  13. We DO have SO much to be thankful for! Love the banner:) Enjoy your day dear Bonnie, HUGS!

  14. A great place to sit and reflect on life - love the board and the thought behind the post.
