Thankful Thursday

 "God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today.  Have you used one to say "thank you"?"--William A. Ward

Thursday is the day that I actually sit down, think about things for which I'm grateful and write them down.  I get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  And I'm thankful for everything, every day.  But, this way, I can slow down and actually put those things into words.

Today, I'm thankful for:
  • Friends who help me know that it's okay to say "No".
  • A husband who is patient with me.
  • Jaycee's messes.  All of them.  It means that she's an active, creative, curious little girl.
  • The fact that Logan still tells us what is going on with him at school.
  • Lots of "virtual" friends who are patient with me while I have "growing pains".  
  • All of the basics--I don't usually say this stuff, because I figure it's a given, but I'll say it this time--A warm house, clothes to wear, food to eat, good health.
"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."--1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
