Thankful Thursday...Friday-style

Alas, Thankful Thursday didn't happen yesterday. I was too busying wallowing around in self-pity due to the declining function of my sinuses. I don't feel much better this morning, but my pity party is over.

Today I am thankful for...
  • the tremendously huge sacrifice that Jesus made so that all of us sinners, including me, could live with Him forever and ever
  • forgiveness and second (third, fourth, seventy-ninth...) chances
  • my family and friends
  • my simple little life
  • my grumpy as I am that I'm not feeling great, I am blissfully healthy compared to many folks, and I don't ever want to forget that
  • the opportunity to celebrate Easter in peace and freedom
  • sunshine and blue skies and a break from the rain
  • the 10 hours of sleep under my belt this morning
  • a much, MUCH-needed day off today
  • my job, students, and coworkers
  • a renewed desire to speak only encouraging words to others
  • summer break approaching in a little over a month
  • a fun return trip to D.C. to look forward to
  • some great new recipes that are just begging to be made (see Suzy's here and Ashley's here)
  • some great new sewing projects that I'll have time for once summer arrives
  • a nice, long chat with my Bubba yesterday
  • enough money to take care of my needs and just a bit left over every now and then for fun stuff
  • clean, running water whenever I want it
  • electricity, cable, a roof over my head, a dependable car, shoes on my feet, clean clothes, more than enough food
HAPPY EASTER, friends!


  1. Beautiful list! So glad you have a day off to rest and try to catch your breath for the last month of school. I know it can be a tough one!
    It is a wonderful thing that we have salvation as a result of our Lord Jesus supreme sacrifice.
    Happy Easter.

  2. Annesta, I hope you enjoyed your short week this week! I'm feeling a tiny bit better this morning, so I hope this trend continues! It was very nice to have a day off yesterday to do nothing but nap :)

    Happy Easter to you!


  3. Hey! I was just looking back at the Pioneer Woman's Sister assignment. She had posted my picture and I didn't realize it but you asked if they were my girls. Well actually it was me and my little sister! :) I just thought I would let you know! :)

  4. Allie, thanks for letting me know! I had to go back and remind myself which picture was yours :) I remember it now and I think it's precious. Thanks so much for stopping by!



Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
