Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for...
  • the grace of the good Lord
  • my family, friends, and my darling fireman
  • my health, and the health of my loved ones
  • my job, the people I work with, and my feisty little 5th graders
  • a roof over my head, shoes on my feet, food in my fridge, clean running water, electricity, a car that runs, and a comfy place to lay my head at night
  • a wide-open weekend...the most wonderful kind!
  • gloriously beautiful fall weather...definitely my most favorite season
  • getting to turn off the AC and open the windows up wide
  • a nice, long walk this afternoon...I was really happy to get some "me" time in
  • legs that are strong enough to carry me through whatever I want to do
  • getting to carve a pumpkin last night...thanks for making my Halloween dreams come true, bud!
  • the chance to (hopefully) get a good night's sleep tonight
  • thus-far healthy, happy pregnancies for some sweet friends of mine
  • Kate getting to make a return trip to Charleston...this time as a professional (!) going to speak at a conference (!!) So proud of you, dear friend :)
  • my simple little life
  • this song, which I listened to no fewer than 4 times on my walk earlier


PS---The people on the news have been reminding me all day that it's been exactly 6 months since those hideous tornadoes chewed their way through our beautiful state of Alabama. I still don't like to think about that day, and I still have a hard time reading this post and the ones I posted after it. I'm still very thankful, however, that all of my sweet family members in Tuscaloosa were fine. Such a blessing.
