During a search for a blog Thankful Thursdays meme to link to, I found this cute picture at the Rose Colored Glasses that seems to say it all.
All that being said, here’s my list for this Thankful Thursday:
*** My God
I am so thankful for the love that He has shown me throughout my life. I am thankful for the grace He has given me and for forgiving me for the stupid mistakes that I have made in my life. I am thankful for the many amazing blessings that He has given me. (My kids are the best). And I thank Him and rely on Him daily to help make me a better person so that I may do HIS will.
*** My Husband
*** My Daughter
I had a hard time choosing just one photo of my little princess. I love and am thankful for her sweet tender heart. I pray that she doesn’t have to endure any great hurts that may harden that beautiful heart of hers. She is so caring and always wants to help take care of others.
And like her daddy, I love her silliness. She adores making people laugh and has no problem with making them laugh at her expense. I pray that her little light will always continue to shine just as bright bringing so much happiness to all around her.
*** My Son
Oh MY! Am I ever so thankful for this little man! He melts my guarded heart with his tenderness. While some people go out of their way to hurt and cut people down. He goes out of his way to build people up and make people feel loved. I pray that this love of his will continue to teach others to be kind and loving and that the world will not change him, but instead he will change the world.
Lately, so many people have been fighting sickness and I am very thankful that he have all been fortunate and have remained healthy. I pray for the others that have been exposed to sickness and I hope they all get better soon.
*** My Boxers
*** My Extended Family
We have been blessed with amazing parents, grandparents, siblings and now nieces & nephews. I am so thankful for all of them.
*** My Camera
I still have so much to learn and am enjoying the journey. I am thankful for being able to capture so much wonderful memories to share with future generations.
*** My Online/Offline Friends & Readers
Every individual wants to feel loved and understood and I am thankful for the support and friendship of all.
*** Lauren Lynn
The amazing magician that colors my hair. ok. Seriously, I just had my hair highlighted and colored and she did an absolutely amazing job. I love it. I just want to swish my hair around like the girl from the shampoo commercials. Thanks Lauren. If anyone in the Tulsa area wants to make an appointment with her because she is that awesome… her business number is 918-587-2566.
*** A Clean House
Corey bought us a new vacuum. I am super excited. For the last few months I have been sweeping our carpet with a broom and borrowing vacuums from others. I know that this may be a silly thing (materialistic) but it’s the convenience and all the free time that I see in my future that makes me excited. And a clean floor… just the thought of the clean, dust free floor makes me want to roll around on the carpet. Thank you baby. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
*** Paying it Forward -
Here’s the full story.
I know time is sparse during this time of the year, but if you have a moment to spare I would love to hear why you are giving thanks today.
