Thankful Thursday - 2/26

It's the time in the week where I pause to think of 5 things, big or small, that I am thankful for this week.

1. A babysitter! Date night is coming up, and it will be nice to go out with my hubby sans kids.

2. My dog Buddy. He is a sweet pup and such good companionship. I love my dog! (He is a Boston Terrier).

3. Encouragement. I received 2 encouraging cards in the mail this week. One from a good friend and the other from my sister. I love getting mail, and encouragement is the best.

4. My children's friends. Both my girls have best friends who are good kids (sisters too) from a good family. It's so nice to be able to switch off for playdates and know the kids are happy and well cared for.

5. Jesus! I'm so thankful for a Savior that truly experienced all the emotions and feelings I do, and I know he can relate to what I'm feeling in good times and not so good. Yay Jesus!

BONUS**I'm thankful for Sonya - who celebrated her birthday this week and is the host for the Thankful Thursday meme.

Kelly - isn't it great to be thankful? I just love to take the time to reflect on all the good things when sometimes all we hear are the bad things!

Enjoy your date night! I think I have a date with some grandkids tomorrow night :)

In Him,

I am thankful for all that the LORD has graced us with by just allowing us through Christ to be in His presence. Aww, that is where I experience fullness of JOY!

I love taking time to think about all that I am thankful for. Right now, I am thankful that child #2 is finally better after 3 days with the stomach bug and is back at school.

Hope you and you hubby enjoy your date night!

It is so important to try to always think of what we are thankful for, it helps make the problems stay away from the front of our least temporarily.

I'm thankful that I don't have date night..opps..that was ugly. /. .|

That was a smiley face on my last comment. Unfortunately, after I hit post, the nose and mouth moved to the beginning of the line.

Oh well.
