My Thankful List

1. I am thankful for my family and how precious my two little ones are. I love them more than they will ever know.

2. I am thankful for my new Beth Moore bible study on the Psalms of accent and how neat that is.

3. I am thankful for quietness in the house time for me to think, reflect and get things done.

4. On the opposite side I am thankful for little feet that run through the house screeching with laughter and sometimes snorting. I am thankful for my little guy and how he asks first if he can "Make a mess?" meaning take down all the cushions to the couch and jump on them.

5. I am so thankful my house smells good again as I have some great plug ins and they smell the house up without always having to have a candle going. Creamy Carmel wallflowers are the way to go.

6. I am thankful that I had a loving father that set a great example to me of what a humble servant is and I now can pass that on to my kids. This week will mark many years since his passing and I am thankful that It never gets old.... I still miss him dearly, but can rejoice as I know whose he is and where he is.

7. I am thankful that my husband and I are going to spend Thursday together without the kids to Christmas shop and enjoy one another.

So what are you thankful for? Please post

You have already read my thankful list but I will post a couple more. I am thankful for friends that are there in the good times and bad. As you reminded me. I am thankful for a father who was my friend and I am thankful for the memories that we shared. Even the cold weather of today remindes me of chopping wood with him for our wood burner.

I enjoy your list every week. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for a fun-filled Saturday at the Polar Express. I got to drive back there today and pick up Alisha's camera she left behind in the train. Joel went with me and got to see all the festivities inside the building. He thought it looked like a lot of fun. The boys LOVED the bells.

I am thankful for:

* outpatients to give me almost instant relief for my pain (got to spend the entire afternoon there today)

* fireplaces to take the chill off my home since I keep the temp so low

* an opportunity for my hubby to plant God's seed to minister at his cousin's funeral

* for Jon and Joy Bethel visiting NTCC today and thankful God answered prayer with a ministry for them around Marshallton

* for my daughter who is bearing so much pain to carry God's precious gift -- my granddaughter -- not to mention sacrifices so much to be a stay-at-home mom (God bless all you SAH moms)

* for a God who forgives me for my shortcomings
