Thankful Thursday

Good morning! Welcome to “Thankful Thursday,” a weekly time and place inspired by the book, One Thousand Gifts, to think about how we’ve been blessed.  I hope you join in on the fun – what are you thankful for this week?


Here’s my list for this week:

1 – my wonderful husband who completely surprised me for my birthday with fabulous friends, family and food

2 – fabulous friends, family and food

3 – a special chat I had with a special friend – it was full of honesty, encouragement and love (and a great strawberry milkshake!)

4 – time to read

5 – attending a Bible Study Fellowship for women for the first time and for the friend who invited me

6 – time to think and pray

7 – for learning to run my own race in life and not compare myself to others

8 – for learning to count as blessings (and be thankful for them) what I feared others might see as something negative

9 – friends with apple trees who are more than happy to share

10 – fun activities/events to look forward to

11 – getting to have lunch with a friend whose birthday is just a few days after mine – we even got to share a delicious piece of cheesecake in addition to eating lunch and catching up…all in an hour!

12 – visiting with a friend and her adorable little son during Matt’s softball game (fall ball has begun!)
