'much to be thankful for' monday...

My blogger friend Linny, at A Place Called Simplicity, does a Thankful Thursday post each week. No matter what craziness is going on in their lives, she takes the time to list things that she is thankful for. A kick in the pants, stop your wallowing kind of thing. Today I need a swift HARD kick, so I decided that instead of allowing my thoughts to be consumed with anger and hurt, I would list the things that I am so thankful for--even if it isn't Thursday!

I am thankful for:
  • healthy husband and daughters
  • a home to live in
  • a reliable car to drive
  • a steady paycheck
  • health and dental insurance
  • Pepsi w/ lots of ice
  • a husband that can do handyman jobs--so we don't have to hire one
  • a husband that is patient with his perfectionist wife and just withstands the rants quietly
  • a friend, that even 1000s of miles away and in the midst of a crazy time in her life, offered (w/o being asked) to help empty our storage unit in England
  • the same friend for sensing that I was not in a good place with an unexpected situation and ending our conversation with three words, "God is good"--because at that moment, I certainly needed to be reminded that He is in control!
  • the daffodils that are blooming
  • that Michaela's play is finished
  • M&M MckFlurrys
  • that the nasty opossum did not run out in front of my van as I snuck out and got the above item
  • having a washer and dryer--even though I hate to use them:)
  • the smiles on Emma's face when she got home from school
  • being able to purge things without certain someones saying, "I may need that one day!"
  • 25% off coupon for Sherwin Williams
  • prayer
  • my nice comfy bed--which I think I will go take advantage of
  • and mostly I am thankful for a God that is constant

Finally, brothers, whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things ---Philippians 4:8
