Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for...
  • the never-ending grace of the good Lord
  • my delightful family and friends
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones
  • Uncle Robert working hard to make a recovery from pneumonia
  • a weekend of epic proportions to look forward to :)
  • a very productive fact, I've gotten more accomplished this week than I have over my entire break so far...I'm a bit embarrassed by the scope of my laziness
  • the dark clouds that just rolled in...we've had weeks of no rain and unrelenting sunshine, so I'm hoping a few drops will fall
  • a lovely new shower curtain that makes me smile
  • finally, FINALLY finding a recycling bin to unload the trunk full of plastic bottles I've been riding around since school got out
  • Neeley getting settled in her new Dallas home...can't wait to schedule a visit!
  • a successful internship for Daniel, so far
  • money to pay my bills, make my car payment, and (sometimes) a bit left over for some fun
  • air conditioning and clean, running water whenever I want it
  • shoes on my feet, clothes to wear, a roof over my head, food in my belly, and a car that runs...I'm indescribably blessed
  • the good days my mama has been enjoying...such a blessing!
  • my first ever batch of from-scratch pizza sauce turning out to be, well...edible! It was so easy; I'll share next week.
  • Ashley making a big decision that I think will really pay off for her...steppin' out on faith!
  • the world's tastiest peaches (Chilton County, of course) that I bought at the farmers market this week


Anything fun on your horizon?


  1. Julie,
    Your shower curtain is lovely. I like the color. And I have to agree with you that you are very blessed.
    Summer I love them! And, could you send some of those dark clouds over here? We are in a terrible drought.

  2. Annesta, thanks! I've debated for several days about whether I really NEEDED a new shower curtain, and you can tell what I decided :) The pretty little border is my favorite part. We ended up getting a storm. It was so windy...tons of limbs down, but the ground was just barely damp. Oh well, I guess it's better than nothing!

    Enjoy your weekend, friend, and thanks for visiting!


  3. you are so good with your thankful thursdays! i really need to get in on this! i so love this!! makes me stop and think about the little things like water, air conditioning and the Good Lord!

  4. Suz, it's a little reminder I need for myself about that time every week :) You're welcome to use the idea if you want! I hope yall are getting settled in your new little home, and I can't wait to hear all about it. Love ya!


  5. *love the shower curtain, pretty colors
    *did you know Target has a recycling area at the front of the store? They take plastic bottles but probably couldn't hold a trunk full ;)
    *did I miss you posting the recipe for the spaghetti sauce? Would love to check it out

  6. Kristi, thanks for your sweet comment! I'm still really excited about my shower curtain. Doesn't take much to make me happy :) I got it on sale at World Market. I actually was able to fit a bag of bottles in the bin at Target, but they weren't equipped to handle a trunk full :) I haven't posted the spaghetti sauce recipe yet...kinda forgot about it. I'll get that up in the next day or so!

    Thanks a bunch for stopping by!



Comments delight me! Thanks for stopping by.
