Thankful Thursday


Another week of reflection to think back on all the great things this past week has blessed me with. I think I am ready to list them. If you've never participated in Thankful Thursday's, it's the idea created from Sonya at Truth 4 The Journey. It's a great place to meet people just like yourself and be inspired at the same time. Join her blog and see if you aren't blessed.

Here is my blessings for this week.

1. I am inspired to begin writing my book, thanks to all your wonderful feedback on the Gallery and Picture posts. My daughter Cait was bugging me last night to begin writing it so she can read it as fast as I write it. I am so glad she has that much faith.

2. My brother is leaving the company my hubby is at, so the pressure of reporting to him will be gone as of Friday. He is a challenge to work with and for.

3. We were fortunate enough to be blessed with my 5 year old Mea this weekend. It's a play it forward thing for my daughter Cait, since when she was little and growing up, my sister would do things with her and now she gets to do it for her cousin over the weekend. We are planning pancake breakfast and getting her nails done.

4. I am really thankful for air conditioning. In recent weeks we have been baking in record highs here in the desert with our second wave of 100+ temperatures expected this weekend into next week. The down side of that is huge electric bills. The cost of living in the desert.

5. I am thankful God never gives up on me and uses personal tragedies for His gain.

I had coffee with my pastor today and we spoke of being specific when we give thanks...so this post is timely.

I am thankful for an amazing husband chosen for me by the Father (the ultimate arranged marriage )

I am thankful for Christ, his shed blood that covers every inch of me so that I can stand before God and feel cherished!!!

Hi dear friend,
Thank you for another uplifting Thankful Thursday post.

And thank you for dropping by my place again! Your visits are an encouragement to me.

By the way, it's possible that you missed my comment informing you about a blog award that I passed on to you on June 21, at my Father's Day post. Hope you find time to pick it up sometime!

Have a great Friday and weekend ahead of you!

Rosel: Eeeks!! Next Thursday?? I don't think so, unless I am divine inspired through many moments of quiet times to think and dreams to remember each morning.

Andrea: Woo HOO! Thanks for the encouragement. My daughter is already trying to sneak a peek at the next chapter. Her response, hurry up mom, write!!! I think it was more like a desperate demand.

Billy: Thank you so much for your words of inspiration. You will be my writing mentor.

Lidj: I did overlook your comment, but scooped it up. I will definitely put it into play next week. Thanks so much for the honor.

Girlinaglasshouse: So glad this spoke to you today. Some days are more challenging than others.
