I am Thankful.....

Monday, October 11, 2010

I am thankful for a husband who doesn't complain when he has to get up on Saturday morning at 5:30am to help me with a yard sale after working all night and only getting 2 1/2 hours of sleep.

I am thankful for fresh picked apples to make a homemade pie on a Sunday after noon.

I am thankful for homemade chicken noodle soup.

I am thankful for the crisp Fall mornings.

I am thankful for a teenage son who will still hug his Dad.

I am thankful for a teen who prays out loud in church.

I am thankful for Southern Pecan coffee creamer to help me start my morning.

I am thankful for friends who I know will always be there for me no matter what.

I am thankful for a husband who calls me to make sure I arrive somewhere safely and checks my tire pressure and oil before I leave.

I am thankful for a family that prays together.

I am thankful for the few minutes of family time, because having a teenager makes them few and far between.

I am so blessed in life and have so much to be thankful for....what are you thankful for?????

Great list! I am thankful for "the little things" too, which turns out that they aren't little at all. Hope you are having a great Monday.

What a great reminder to stop and be thankful for ALL the little things we're blessed with. Sometimes counting your blessings is the most important thing to do, but is not always a priority!

What an awesome list! I love that Kyle still gives his dad hugs. That is so sweet.

This makes me want to step back and look at the things I am thankful for. I can say right now I am thankful for your blog and friendship! :)

P.S. Your hat was mailed on Wednesday last week.

Great list. Reminds me of of the old hymn, "Count Your Many Blessings, See What God has done". Sounds like He has richly blessed your life!

Isn't it amazing when you start to really think about it how much we have to be truly thankful for?

I really enjoyed this. It makes me stop and think about what I am thankful for. I just miss my son praying out loud and singing in church and wanting to hug me. I just will have to be thankful that he is staying out of trouble so far and is a great kid.
