THANKFUL THURSDAY

I love Thankful Thursdays! There are so many times when I forget to give thanks for even the small things!! This is a great way to put everything into perspective on how the Lord blesses me even when I don't deserve it. To read more Thankful Thursday's, click here.

Iris's theme this week is "Thanksgiving", but I did mine last week on that same subject. So, this week, I will give thanks to random things!
  • I'm thankful that my sister and her family are able to visit California at least once a year.
  • I'm thankful that my kids and their cousins just start out where they left off. It's like one day has not passed since they've seen each other last.
  • I'm thankful for our friends in the Lord. They have prayed diligently for my husband's health, and continue to do so. He had an allergic reaction to something he ate, and caused him to feel like he was suffocating.
  • I'm thankful that even though money is tight, God still provides!
  • I'm thankful that my mother-in-law was able to hear a solid message at our church on Sunday, and also be greeted in love by our friends.
  • I'm thankful for all my bloggy friends! I told my husband it is like an "outlet" during the day since I'm at home all day with the kids.
  • I'm thankful to hear my kids playing and laughing. There are so many children who are sick right now.
  • I'm thankful for DETERGENT! There's nothing like having a mountain of laundry to do with only one cup of detergent left!
  • I'm thankful that I have my favorite creamer for my coffee that I'm going to brew in the morning! Nothing like a hot cup of joe!!
  • I'm thankful for all the goodies that my sister brought us from Hawaii!! Yum, yum!
