Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

It's been a rough week. I worked a couple of extra days and the weathers been yucky and it's just been hard. It's late but I want to do Thankful Thursday. I need the change of focus. So, here we go!

1. I am grateful I have a job. I work the two days a week that Leland is home so we don't have to worry about childcare. I won't go into the whole story but just landing the job was clearly from God and I'm grateful.

2. I am grateful Leland has a job! In this recession and difficult time, we know many people who have lost jobs or had hours slashed. I thank God that we haven't had to worry about that (yet).

3. I sm thankful to live where we do, in a country of such convenience. Ther are MANY places in the world where a person can NOT run down to the corner grocery store and pick up milk and bread. And if the corner grocery store exists, there are many places where people work DAYS to be able to afford milk and bread!

4. I am thankful for chocolate. Today was one of those days and a little bit of chocolate, a mocha, etc. was a lovely pick me up.

5. I am grateful for BloggerVille. I've "met" some good friends and been exposed to some amazing women. There's a pretty impressive community out there of pretty impressive gals!

Oh, there we are! That wasn't as hard as I thought it would be (although it DID take some effort). Thanks for joining me. Click the button above to find other Thankful Thursdays!

Hi Sweet Friend~

I am praying for you this morning. Your family is so beautiful.

It brought tears to my eyes to hear of your story. Twenty years ago, I lost my baby sister who was 18 years younger than me. She felt like my baby. The grief was so deep.

Time has done amazing things to heal. But still when I hear of families losing babies, it brings tears to my eyes.

Sending you many prayers and hugs~

What a precious blog home you have here. It feels so warm and inviting and your faith in the Lord is shinning through!

I think its great to be thankful for the little things like chocolate! You're the 2nd gal who has had that on her TT post this week. I do believe every good thing is from God, yes even chocolate!!

God bless you and your family!
