Day 30: I’m thankful that my friends were kind enough to share their thankfuls with me this Thanksgiving season. What a blessing to see the hand of God at work in your lives as you shared from your hearts.
As I read your thankfuls, knowing some about each of you, your unique journey of life. I saw this quote put into action: “Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many – not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” Charles Dickens
No one knows like you do, what the Lord has done for you…what a wonderful time of reflecting upon His goodness together! Thank you so much for sharing!
Here are the rest of my Thankfuls for the month of November that I shared daily on FB…just so I can remember them in the future:
Day 29: I’m thankful for the presence of the Lord! The Journey is….Undescribable
Day 28: I’m thankful for the wisdom & skill of dentists & orthodontists. Glad to give Emmy the smile she’s always wanted…even though I think it’s perfect as is!
Day 27: I’m thankful that Emily peeled all the potatoes for the mashed potatoes today. I really don’t enjoy that job. Thanks Emmy!
Day 26: I’m thankful for friends, football, & disposable plates, bowls & cups. *not washing dishes 2night*
Day 25: I’m thankful for HOME….and my 5 senses.
Touch…to enjoy a hug from my sister who lives in TX now. Sight…to see so many things that my parents have collected through the years…each w/it’s own special memory. Hear…to hear the chimes from the grandfather clock(s) at my parent’s house. Smell…to awake to the smell of coffee. Since I don’t drink it, the smell always makes me think of my parent’s. Taste…to eat the waffles that he makes every time we come home. The same one’s in the same waffle iron that he used when I was a little girl.
Day 24: I’m thankful for time w/the people who have known me the longest & love me the most…my family. The gas station employees who made this visit possible, God’s protection when the driver of the little orange convertible next to us wasn’t paying attention, momma’s cooking, and stretchy pants…Happy Thanksgiving friends! ♥
Day 23: I’m thankful for my church family! I’ve been trying to blog about you…just running short on time the last few days.
Day 22: I’m thankful that the Lord led me to this song today & that it is true for my life.When I Think About The Lord
Day 18: I’m thankful that my sister is coming home for Thanksgiving next week!…and I’m thankful that she is back in Austin, TX & happy w/her dogs & her honey. What a JOURNEY in life she has traveled! I love her & am so proud of her! Want to define STRONG? Just look up my sister!
Day 15: I’m thankful for PEOPLE! The blessing of friends & family that the Lord strategically placed in my particular journey of life. You are proof of God’s provision, goodness & love. ♥
Day 14: I’m thankful that my girls love each other.
DAY 13: I’m thankful for God’s love. I am thankful that when you believe that His love is true for you, not just everyone else…you can then learn to love others in the same way. You are loved, you are accepted.
Day 12: I’m thankful for the opportunity to watch my children learn & grow.
…Jessica’s out practicing driving w/Matt…Emmy’s playing the “Just Dance” game & doing great(Glad she didn’t take after me)…Grace is spelling words like firmen, wor egle, poles (firemen, war eagle, police) not bad for a 5 year old. What a blessing ♥
Day 11: I’m thankful…just plain ole thankful. Thankful for fun times w/my girls & their friends. The Lord’s provision for my friend. A babysitter for Grace, knowing she was having the time of her life! Memories. Laughter. New babies with cool birthdates 11-11-11. Smiles. Ice Cream. Jesus. (Definitely not listed in order of importance.)
…and God’s beautiful moon for us to enjoy…now if I only had a porch & a rocking chair…
Day 10: I am thankful for Matt & the power of his dreams. He changes lives every day…especially mine! He doesn’t like me to talk about him much…but sometimes I just can’t help it. When thinking of my Thankful’s, Matt is at the top of my list. He gave me permission to share this…and I believe it would help all who read it. The Journey is…honor.
