WIWW: Giving Thanks for Clothing

This past week wasn't the easiest to say the least. During the day on Friday, my heater was repaired. However, by friday night it had malfunctioned and filled up my house with smoke. While, it was overwhelming at the time, I can look back at it now and see the lessons learned. After making some phone calls Friday night, I ended up having to pack up one bag and leave my house in hopes of finding it in one piece the following morning.

Luckily, my house is still standing and I've been able to spend a good deal of the weekend and this week doing some damage control. Since our house smelled like smoke, it became a necessity to wash just about everything. As my washing machine was constantly going, I was reminded to give thanks. This holiday season I've been giving gifts away as a reminder how of blessed I am, and how I need to be a blessing to others. The smoke came out of most of my clothes, so I decided to pack up the clothes I don't wear and donate them to the Goodwill. As I dropped the clothes off, my heart was filled with gratitude for all that I have.
