Thankful Thursday

This has been one of those weeks when I have just felt "blah". Nothing is really going on...nothing bad is happening...I just feel "blah." Today has been pretty bad. I did not feel like doing anything & would have loved to have just sat on the couch and veg out. However, when my perspective starting changing to that of thankfulness I have a new attitude & a better outlook on the day.

So...here is my thankful list...

1. I am thankful for a home that keeps us cool.

2. I am thankful for my kids that (at times) play together quite well.

3. I am thankful that by putting up a blanket behind the girls blinds in their room Kaityn Mae has slept later than 5:30 or 6:00.

4. I am thankful that I actually LOVE running & look forward to getting up in the morning to do that.

5. I am thankful that I am able to stay at home. I know of several girls who have kids that work & would love to stay at home.

6. I am thankful for our health.

7. I am thankful that even though the Dr. bills are coming in from my CAT scan that God will provide the money we need to pay for those.

8. I am thankful that we are going to get to go on a vacation in September to FL & possibly to the "D.W." I am NOT ABOUT TO TELL THE KIDS THAT NOW. They would drive me bonkers.

9. I am thankful that VERY SOON I am going to get to see sweet Jackson's face & love on him. I can't wait to be an Aunt.

10. I am thankful for God's provision of "silly" things that I desire like landscaping rocks for the front of our house. We had the PERFECT EXACT ammount we needed.

11. I am thankful for my husband who is so encouraging to me. We will celebrate our 9th anniversary here in a couple of weeks...WOW!!!!!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Great list! I know exactly how you feel sometimes. The Thankful Thursday list always seems to help me. And about DW if you mean Disney World, we just went last year and it was great fun. I put some helpful hints on my blog when we went but if I think of anything else, I'll let you know. The kids absolutely loved it. The best thing we did was to get the "fast pass" for rides that had long lines.
