Thankful Thursday

I think it's still Thursday, they are so long in our home.  We normally get up early to take Joel into work so that Hannah and I can have the car for the day and then we stay up late watching movies.  It's a new addition to our week, but we all love movie night.  Hannah and Joel are actually downstairs playing a game on the Wii that they picked up from the library.  I love our library!  But I'm avoiding it because I cannot find a book that I borrowed from them.  I have never lost a library or school book before in my life, it gives me anxiety just to think about the fact that I'm going to have to admit that I don't have any clue where that book is.  Anyway, this is about thankful things.

First and foremost I am so thankful for the news of another expected baby in our congregation!!  That is so exciting, the count is up to five for the year, which is just flat out wonderful!  How blessed we are to be entrusted with the care of future warriors for the kingdom of God!

I am more and more thankful for the one child that we do have.  She is such a blessing.  She and I had a lunch date today with two of our sisters.  It's amazing to see how Hannah is trying and learning how to have real conversations with people.  It's good stuff.

Thankful for all the women in my life.  And it's great how they don't all fit into one genre, it's a full range of womanhood from the itty bitty baby to those that are longing for the day they can see our Savior. 

I'm thankful that I got to have coffee with my mom and then lunch on the same day.  She was off from work and we had speaker phone during our time and got to chat away.  It was much needed for me.

I'm thankful for fast fading of the final days of our cat and the refreshing of all the lovely memories that we have of him.  Hannah remembered the other day how he used to sleeping in a basket that was in her closet in our previous home.  It was so wonderful to think about how lovely and sweet and unexpected he was. 

I'm thankful for my devoted husband.  Who is a real champ when it comes to pushing forward in areas that bother him.  Mainly the clutter that I cannot see or have the time to deal with on a daily basis.  I'm so glad that he's willing to help me with these things and to keep his trap shut when he can't. 

I am also thankful for all of you that read my blog.  I love writing for you!

  1. What a great post about things you are grateful for. They say nothing does the soul more good than gratitude.
    I got a kick out of reading of your anxiety over the lost book. Are you allowed to renew it while you continue to look? I hope so. : )
    Take care,
    M.L.
