Thankful Thursday

Today is Thursday. (Thank you Capt. Obvious)  There are 4 Thursdays until Thanksgiving. (What would you do without me?)  I've decided to take each Thursday and express what I'm thankful for.  I have a lot to be thankful for, so spreading it out like this is a good idea.

I'm thankful for my husband.  Rick and I have been married for 4 years now.  We met on EHarmony (I KNOW!), and there's a fun story there if I ever get around to sharing it.  Though, maybe it's just fun for me, and the rest of the world (you know, the 15 or so of you who read this blog) may not find it as interesting.  Sometimes it seems like it's been forever that we've been together, but other times it seems like our wedding was just yesterday. I'm thankful that Rick and I complement each other so well.  When he gets down, I (try to) brighten his day, and when I'm not being very thoughtful, he reminds me to think of others first.  When I make dinner, he does the dishes entertains Jack so I can clean up in the kitchen.  He is a really great father, and I couldn't imagine my life without him.

I'm thankful for my son.  Jack is the best thing that has ever happened to me!  He is a constant blessing to me.  His little smile can melt my heart.  His dimples are going to be the death of me, I just know it.  He loves when I sing to him, and I love when he gives me kisses.  He loves to be with me, and I love that I get to stay home with him to watch him grow. Now, if only he would lie still during a diaper change!

I'm thankful for Jesus dying on a cross for my sins.  There are many, and I would be a lost person without His saving grace.  Because of his grace and love, I am a hopeful person.  I am thankful that He is the one who gives me hope and joy.  I am currently in a 'lukewarm' stage of my life right now, but I'm making changes.  I'm trying to get back into a habit of praying and reading every day.  My bible has become a little dusty, and I need to change that A.S.A.P!

I'm thankful for chocolate.   I can't imagine how much weight would not be on this body if I didn't have a love affair with chocolate.  Just imagine how cold I would get in the winter!  Chocolate and peanut butter.  Need I say more?

Ok, I'll save the rest for the next three weeks. Feel free to link up with this post if you're a blogger.  Maybe there is someone out there doing this already. 


  1. This is the second happy blog I have read today! Hooray to positivity!

  2. Great list ofthings to be grateful for! If you have a Mr.Linky going on Thanksgiving I will linkup mine to it too. Don't really have a posst that is all about being thankful, even though I am. You have such a cute little boy. Keep up the great work with him.
