Thankful Thursday



Another week under our belts … and it’s Thursday.  I always look forward to Thursdays, where I take the time to be intentionally thankful.  I have so many things for which I am thankful, but I like to narrow it down to a few each week to focus on a few. 


I’m thankful for:

  • God loving us enough to send His only Son … knowing that sending Him would mean that He would die an awful death on the cross. 


  • Opportunities to help out DD. When I was a young mama, I lived about 45 minutes from my mom, so I was pretty much on my own most of the time. So I’m blessed to be available to help out DD whenever she could use a bit of help or a bit of relief. And of course, I am thankful for the opportunity to have some time with the Ts as a result.


  • All the wonderful traditions of Christmastime … I love the old classic Christmas movies, I love the Christmas decorations, I love baking Christmas cookies, I love the getting together with friends and family.


  • DSIL’s safe return from training … and thankful that DD’s precious family is together again.


  • My sweet DH … 24 years ago this Sunday, God gave me the best Christmas gift of all … my DH.


  1. I love your thankful Thursdays and all the things you are thankful for. I am sure your daughter is thankful for you too!


  2. Loved your list! I think your daughter is a very blessed lady to have you! How I wish I lived closer to mine...I know she'd appreciate Grandma's hands now and then too. Happy anniversary to you! 24 years is wonderful! Have a good day...

  3. Love reading what you are thankful for each week.

  4. Love your heart of gratitude! Your daughter is blessed to have you; I, like you, never had a mom who was there for me when I had kids. I too am thankful to have an active part in my girls lives. Sending love your way today.

  5. Just such a wonderful lists of thankfulness! Glad DSIL made it back safe and sound; I'm sure all were glad to see him when he returned from training!


  6. So many things to be thankful for. I love Christmas. My MIL always loved in another state and my mom passed when my children were only 10 months old and 3 years old. I never had anyone I could rely on to sit for me.

  7. I came across you "blog hopping" and I like that you make every Thursday a "Thankful Thursday." How nice to pause on that day each week to especially list the blessings in your life.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
