Thankful Thursday

I heard someone say today, "Well what do I have to be thankful for?" It hurt my heart because (if I may be totally honest) I've felt like that on many an occasion. That's why I'm a big fan of Thankful Thursdays . . . I almost always feel better when I make myself list out all the many ways in which I am blessed.

Today I am thankful for . . .
  • the never-ending, all-encompassing grace of God
  • my family and friends
  • my health
  • my job
  • feeling much more encouraged this week than last week
  • the chance to celebrate Mama's birthday this weekend
  • getting several good, long walks in this week . . . delight
  • clean running water whenever I want it, electricity, a roof over my head, food to eat, a comfy bed, clothes, shoes, a functioning car, money to buy things I need and things I want
  • that there is absolutely nothing in my life that resembles what Sammi and Ronnie have going on . . . egads
  • gloriously beautiful weather this week
  • a fun return trip to D.C. to look forward to
  • that I'm content to shut my mouth and listen to other people run theirs . . . I may not be a big talker, but I hear everything . . . this saves me lots o' trouble and grief, and for that, I am thankful
  • feelings of peace and contentment and excitement
  • my papers from last night are graded . . . alas, they waited on me to get the job done
  • hopefully feeling a bit "bloggier" next week
  • finding this picture . . . photographic evidence of one of the most fabulous nights in my college career . . . so thankful for these chicas
  • {Kate, me, Laura Allyson, Laura, Kira . . . it won't hurt my feelings if you stop real quick and check your reflection in my forehead}
  • some time to rest and recoup and just "do life" for a while



  1. Hey, Girl. I never knew you had a blog. I am humbled after reading your Thankful Thursday. It has given me a fresh perspective. I've fallen into the "Eve syndrome" lately where all I seem to focus on is what I don't have instead of giving thanks for what I do have. So thank you for blessing me with this reminder. Our Heavenly Father is so good to us every day! Have a great Friday with the children. :-)

  2. Renita, I'm so glad you found me! And thanks for stopping me yesterday morning to tell me all this. I'm happy I was able to bring you a little bit of cheer to wrap up your work week. Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you Monday!


Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
