Thankful Thursday

OKOKOK...I know it's not quite Thursday, YET, but I have a lot to be thankful for! Here goes: I'm thankful:
  1. Hubby and the youth made it safely to Orlando!
  2. My head feels tons lighter! Look here to find out why.
  3. My buddy Jacque (and her family) have sold their home, purchased a new one, and are moving as I type...yes, even late Wed evening! They are so excited about their "new" home, and I am, too!
  4. My parents are welcoming the kiddos and I to come visit for a few days.
  5. My dad seems to be feeling a bit better than last week! Slow but steady wins the race!!
  6. My washing seems to be running quite often, I'm so thankful that I have one here at home and don't have to lug things to the laundry mat.
  7. My kiddos love me, even when I loose my patience with them.
  8. That each of my children have a tender heart, and love unconditionally.
  9. That Hubby is such a great daddy (and husband!)...we all miss him terribly and he hasn't even been gone for 24 hours!
  10. That God listens to prayers, even rambling ones from a woman home alone, and a bit nervous. (I hate being home alone with the kids at night...especially now, there have been some break-ins in our town...God, please keep us safe!)
  11. For my silly cat...he's just such a goof! He makes me smile!
  12. For forgiveness. I'm so thankful that Jesus died on the cross and gives me complete forgiveness whenever I don't follow Him. I would be completely hopeless without Him!

Well, that's a bit of what I'm thankful for right now...Oh, add a comfy bed to that list...I'm going to go hop in there soon! I pray God blesses each and every one of you in your journey to serve Him!

Wow--your hair looks great! I remember when I cut my hair I did feel lighter!
I'll keep you in my prayers--I hate being without DH too.

So thankful for forgiveness!!

That's what we would all be without Him - hopeless. Thanks for reminding us today how much hope we have!

Washing machine. This really made me stop and think. That's something I take for granted for sure - and so many other blessings as well.

Oh, sweet forgiveness!

Angie said...

What a precious list! AND YOUR HAIR looks beautiful! Yes he better notice! Bless you for your thankful heart. :)

I like the haircut! It looks stylish and easier. Do you like it so far? :-)

Yes, I think your hubby will notice. But then, he is a man, right? So, on second thought . . . maybe not! Hahahahaha.

I'm glad you and your kids are surviving without your hubby! When Bob goes out of town (which isn't often, I go stir crazy till he gets back home) You have a great thankful list!!!:)

When we are used to having someone by our side at night, it is really hard to adjust to being alone.
I am glad that your hubby and the kids arrived safely :). Very neat that you are able to spend time with your parents. It is always good to be around them, no matter how old we get...
I too am glad that God is listening, no matter what :)
Thank you so much for sharing your thankfulness with us this past week.
Blessings to you and yours.
