What are you Thankful for Today?

This week went by way too quickly. With the weather changing drastically from snow to tshirt weather within days or even hours, it was hard to keep up with what day it was. Until today I was pretty sure it was Wednesday… all week.

Five things I am thankful for today

I have friends that care even when I don’t take as much time as I should. Life gets busy and I don’t always stop to let people know I am thinking about them, but I have friends who understand. Between us we take turns touching base with each other.

Tomorrow is always another day with more hours, more time to get things done and more opportunities to do what it was I wanted to do today.

My oldest son made the right decision without any prodding or bribing or threatening from me. It’s so rewarding to go through years of “teaching”, hoping they get it right, and then finally they do; All on their own.

I made a new series of jewelry pieces featuring my own art. I didn’t have a chance to ask ahead of time – but when I made an unexpected stop to show the retail shop owner I work with, she loved them.

My husband keeps coming back regardless how cranky or bossy or snotty I get. I don’t intend to be this grumpy snitty gal, but I find myself getting more naggy and demanding. He listens and sometimes responds – but most importantly, he keeps coming home at the end of the day. I’m pretty sure it’s not because he loves my cooking.

  1. I'm thankful that I have some true friends, even if 9 out of 10 of them (number not to scale. lol) are internet only. If something happened to them I would be sad, overwhelmed and a little bit lost.
    And I know if something happened to me something would be missing from some of their lives as well.

    I'm thankful that on Tuesday my mom's breaks waited until we were parked in a space at an auto parts shop to go out completely. I'm scared enough about driving with people, getting into another break-failure based car accident (could have died on the freeway) would have been about 100 steps in the wrong direction with me being more comfortable in a car.
    We weren't just lucky. Something else.
    My good friend Misti said “God isn't ready for you”, I chuckled a little and my answer seems to be “is anyone?”… but I do think someone stepped in on Tuesday. And for that I am thankful.

  3. Hi, I enjoyed reading your post. My favorite was the one about your husband. What an encouragement to all to read the good example you are both setting for your family and for your readers 🙂

    I am grateful for Easter and the precious gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, my Lord. I am grateful for my family and friends, especially my mom, my kids, my grandkids, and my beloved husband waiting for me in heaven. And I am grateful for the fun and challenges of blogging and the friends we make along that path! 🙂
