Thankful Thursday 2/19

What 5 things (big or small) am I thankful for this week?

1. Due to sensitive teeth, sometimes a dental cleaning can be painful, but yesterday's cleaning was pain free AND no cavities.

2. Wednesday nights at church. A great excuse NOT to cook! A great opportunity to fellowship, and you may even learn something.

3. Sue J - she is my editor, extraordinaire. She is truthful in her critiques and helps me take my writing to the next level. Thanks Sue J!

4. The Circus! Well, I'm taking the kids today, so by tonight I may not be thankful for it. But as of right now, we're all excited to see the "greatest show on earth!"

5. My short story was accepted to appear in a BOOK being published in Oct. '09. It's called Christmas Miracles, and it being put together by Cecil Murphey and Marley Gibson. Can I get an AMEN! My first book entry people! I am so very excited.

Oh, goodness! (Check humble meter.... Maintain levels....)

You know how excited I am about your writing, and I rejoice with you at God's new direction for your serving Him! It's been a pleasure to help in the small ways that I can.

Hey congrats on the book!!

Hope you had fun at the circus. We took Olivia when she was about 3 and she was mezmerized.

I had scheduled a post for Friday after my "Commercial Break" but I may join your meme late if that's ok.

I had the girls all day and late today, plus I'm working on 6 jobs (WooHoo!) so I didn't get a chance to visit any blogs today. :(

Congratulations on your book entry! I have another friend in the same book and am so excited for both of you!!!

I also loved your thankful entries. Too often I don't pause to specifically name the things for which I'm thankful. It's a good habit indeed.

Keep writing!
