Two of my sisters-in-law started doing something on their blogs called "Thankful Thursday". Every Thursday they post a list of things they are grateful for that day. I thought it was a great idea, so now I'm jumping on the bandwagon. Here it goes:
1. I am thankful for our friends Mark and Shelley. They have been letting us stay at their house while we try to work out our housing situation. It has been such a blessing and we really appreciate their hospitality.
2. I am thankful for Scott. I am lucky to have such a great husband. He always tries to make me happy and is such a good father. I am glad that he is going to school, not to mention in a completely different field than he was in when we got married, just so that he can support our family and provide us with a good life. He does so much for me and the kids and I am truly blessed to be sealed to him.
3. Air conditioning. It's something you take for granted, but on a hot day it's a great thing to have.
4. The gospel. Lately I've been having a hard time, and I know that I would be having a worse time if it weren't for the knowledge I have of our Heavenly Father and His plan. I don't always do the things I know I'm supposed to be doing, yet He helps me anyway. I haven't necessarily been feeling like He has been paying attention to me at all lately, but when I really think about it I know that He has been. I just haven't been paying attention to Him.
Maybe "Thankful Thursday" was a good thing for me. It helped me step back and think about all the things I have to be grateful for. I encourage you to have your own "Thankful Thursday"!
