Thankful Thursday

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. – Isaiash 40:29

Today I am thankful for…

Sleeping in, even when I went to bed early.
Air conditioner, to keep it cool in 90 degree heat.
Internet, to watch TV & communicate with others.
Phone, just in case of emergencies & talking to friends.
Mom, for being there when we need her.
Husband, for working and providing, and even cutting the grass.
Daughter, reciting her ABCs and the sounds they make.
Dieting – Down to 167lbs!
Lisa, always being a great friend and she helps with food from her garden.
Noise from daughter playing.
Being about to read.

What are you thankful for this week?

  5. Nice post! I particularly liked the part about listening to your daughter play…the sounds of children at play are so underrated! They can fill a house with life and laughter and, honestly, nothing sounds sweeter! Thanks! 🙂

    • Thanks!! Most people take their kids laughter for granted, some people would love to have children but can’t so I always look at it different. I should be thankful for the laughs and the sounds that come from her playing 🙂
