Today, on this Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for:
My husband and the fact that he gets up and goes to work everyday to provide for his family, even though he doesn’t really like his job.
My husband’s patience that he has for me.
My children–I love each one so very, very much!
Our health, as we are very, very blessed with good health.
Trials the Lord has allowed us to go through, the ability to forgive, and the Lord’s unconditional love!
All American Soldiers/Military and the extreme sacrifices they have made and continue to make each and everyday so that I can live here in a free country with my family.
My younger sister, even though she is so crazy!!!
The internet and the numerous things I can do online–help to supplement my husband’s income, buy homeschool items, read/learn, listen to services from my church that I wasn’t able to attend, etc.
BLOGS and all the wonderful women who write them and the help, support, and encouragement they provide to myself and others.
That the weather is much cooler this week!
Peacefulness among both of our neighbors and us.
All of my pets and their good health, especially my eldest dog who is 13 1/2 years old–everyday I have with her is a gift!
This “Thankful Thursday” activity and the fact that it forces me to STOP and see the many blessings God gives me.
EDITED TO SAY–I forgot to mention how thankful I am that the Lord spared my family and I from a minor scare. A child from church had head lice and thankfully, my family and I have never had it (we use Tea Tree Oil in our soaps, shampoos, and cleaners–a tip I read about a long time ago and began to implement). So, needless to say, I am EXTREMELY grateful the Lord spared us from this!!!
