Thankful Thursday

It's good to be here this morning, taking a few minutes to stop and count my blessings. I know that I frequently get so wrapped up in the day to day busy-ness of life that I forget to be thankful.

I do have a lot to be thankful for though. God has been good to us.

** I'm so thankful that I'm able to walk pain-free now, three weeks after a bad fall.

** I'm thankful that we are beginning to make friends here. We've been invited to go swimming with a couple of families this afternoon and both kids are having friends sleep over on Friday night!

** I'm thankful that our finances are finally beginning to get straightened out after everything went crazy last month. Moving across the world certainly confuses things!

** I'm thankful that our family is becoming closer. The move has placed us in a situation where it's just us for the past couple of months. We've had to rely on each other more than ever before.

** I'm thankful that we are getting the hang of living here. Driving isn't so scary, finding things is becoming easier. It's becoming home.

** I'm thankful for God's overwhelming love. Being in a new place without friends drives you to turn to God. He's an amazing friend, let me tell you.

Thanks to Iris for hosting Thankful Thursday. It's such a great way to stop, take a breath, and remember to be thankful in the midst of life.

Moving will defintely stretch and grow you further than you ever thought before. It is a joy that you are choosing to be blessed rather than be bitter. I enjoyed your list!
