Thankful Thursday



There is so much to be thankful for. No matter what is going on in your life, the very fact that we live and breathe, that we are saved by grace, that alone is is reason to praise Him. But here are a few things this week that I am especially thankful for:
  • I'm thankful that my mom is here visiting
  • I'm thankful that my children are happy, healthy and whole
  • I'm thankful that I got our new curriculum
  • I'm thankful that my brother-in-law, a confirmed bachelor at 49, finally found someone to share his life with and is now engaged
  • I'm thankful for our beautiful home
  • I'm thankful that Hurricane Dean did not come here and for the fact that as a Category 5 storm, it didn't do more damage and that no life was lost in Mexico. Having survived Andrew, I know what a Cat 5 storm can do and this is a miracle
  • I'm thankful I discovered blogging - it's become a type of therapy/journal/sort through my thoughts on life place, and
  • I'm thankful for you, for the very kind words and comments you all offer and for the support you've shown as I learn the fine art of blogging

May God bless you and keep you this week! For more Thankful Thursday participants, visit Iris at Sting My Heart

I had a brother who married in his 40's as well and I think we all let out a huge sigh of relief and we are so blessed now with a little nephew!
