Thankful Thursday

Last year I participated in Thankful Thursdays...if you search the Internet you'll find all sorts of groups that coordinate their Thankful Thursdays. I was so encouraged by reading friends and family post their thanks weekly, that two years ago I started blogging my thanks everyday during the month of November. I can't tell you how this spoke to my heart leading into the holiday season..what I can tell you is that there is something about thankfulness that leads a heart to recognize the smallest of good things in life and eternity. In this new year I am striving to recognize and journal the things I am thankful for. I hope you will join me!

This week I am thankful for:

1. My husband, who will turn 40 tomorrow. I am thankful for his heart for the Lord, his love for our family and his commitment to the ministry God has called him to. He is a hard worker, loves people and without a doubt goes the extra mile for others. I am blessed to be his wife and grateful for the 17 years God has given us together.

2. A wonderful holiday trip to Colorado after Christmas. It was breathtakingly beautiful...the snow, the landscape, the children's rosy cheeks, the icicles. GORGEOUS!!!

3. My preschool class... they have stolen my heart. Diverse backgrounds...but kids don't know...and if they did...they don't care!

4. Heating pad...I fell on our trip. I've been on the heating pad since I returned, but I think I am just about over it. BTW, Tucker was with me when I fell....his response afterward..."Hey mom, watch out for that ice"...he is his father's child.

What are you thankful for today?

Gina, it blessed me to read your thanksgiving list. Thanks for stopping by my site the other day, it's great to hear from you!

Your husband and preschool children sound precious. I'm sorry you fell and glad the heating pad is helping. Happy New Year!
