Thankful Thursday - 4/2

Welcome to Thankful Thursday. This is the part of our show where Larry comes out and sings a silly song. Oops. I mean, this is the part of my blog where I write five things, big or small, that I am thankful for each week. This week:

1. I won a book! Linda (Mocha with Linda) randomly picked me to win, and it's always fun to win, isn't it? I love to read, so I'll be enjoying the book "If Tomorrow Never Comes."

2. For great teachers! I am so blessed with wonderful teachers for my kids. This is huge, especially when I hear stories from families who do not have loving, caring, Christian teachers for their children. THANK YOU TEACHERS!

3. My sister! (Both of them, but today I am being thankful especially for Mary in honor of her birthday yesterday).

4. My final edition in my 4 Part "THE POWER" series over at ithirst ezine. This was my first multi-part writing series with a monthly deadline, and I did it!

5. Spring break next week! I am SO TIRED, this week has been exhausting. So I'm thankful for the chance next week to sleep late, do fun day trips with my girls and maybe even do some Spring cleaning (and clothes sorting. You moms know you have to rotate the clothes every season as the kids grow, and it's time!)

That's my five things this week. How about you? Leave me a comment, or link up over at Truth 4 the Journey by clicking the button at the bottom of this post.

But since I mentioned silly is a silly song with Larry I'd never heard! And since it's about Monkeys and Monkeys are Funny, (or at least that's what I've heard) well I had to post it. Enjoy...or not. :-)

If it doesn't have a tail it's not a monkey.
If it doesn't have a tail it not a monkey.
If it doesn't have a tail it's not a monkey it's an ape.

Oh great. Guess what I'll be humming all day....

Thanks for the great birthday!!

Too funny!!

I like the part about teachers.. I was nervous about Noodle entering public school after attending one year of preschool at our church but guess what, both of Lucas teachers are christians.. it has been such a blessing especially with the obedience issues we were having.

Happy Thursday!!

Sooooooo are you saying I am an ape?

Let's see
I am thankful that I have tomorrow off.
I am thankful that it is raining and the pollen is getting washed away.
I am thankful that I finished, I mean my son finished his science project last night.
I am thankful that I haven't got a tail.
I am thankful for great friends like you who just posted on my blog. :)

I am thankful for your number 2 comment since I am a teacher at a christian preschool! I am thankful that it is sunny today. I'm thankful for my family and wonderful co-workers. I'm thankful that I only have about 6 weeks left of work and will have the summer off to rest and relax! I'm thankful for being a child of God.

Also, thank you for this post today. It's been a tough day for me, and I needed to remember what I am thankful for!
