Thankful Thursday #44

Here are my thankful thoughts this morning:

1. Slow mornings: I am thankful for slow mornings when I get to drink my coffee and finish it without heating in the microwave.
2. Allergy medicine: I am thankful for the medicine that helps me combat the serious pollen in the air.
3. Facebook: I am a new facebook friend. I am thankful for it because I have reconnected with some old friends. It is fun to see what college friends are up to and be able to chat with friends that are not in my same town. (Hey friend, sign up for a facebook account and let me know you are on there. I’d love it! [There- there’s a commercial for you.])
4. Reading Program at the Library: I took the kids to the Library reading program (started yesterday). It was a blast! They had a bee keeper visit with bees in tow. The boys loved it. (Catch the reading bug—go to your library! [Another commercial])

5. 24 Hour Wal-mart: I was at Wal-mart late last night. It was because of poor planning. As I was shopping, I decided I was thankful for the 24 hour convenience. (Since my hubby works for a competitor, I can't commercial this one... Spend your money at Target!)
6. Slip N Slide Weather: It was warm enough to get out the slip n’ slide this week. We hit the high 70’s! It is a far cry from the summer temps I long for but it was a JOY to see my kids playing in the water.

7. Funny Faces: I just asked my 4 year old what he is thankful for and that was his answer. I am thankful for his sweet face and the funny face he just made. I am thankful for laughter.
8. Being Refreshed: I went to bed with a bad attitude and woke up with a good one. Sleep is amazing…and coffee is wonderful.
9. Growth: I am growing in ways I cannot explain in this little post. I am being challenged financially, emotionally, and spiritually. I am learning. I am thankful for making progress toward goals.

Take time to be thankful today! Nothing is too small to appreciate.

Okay JA, your thankful Thursdays is rubbing off on me. I don't have a blog, but it has got me thinking. Today driving home from one of my children's doctor's appointment, instead of letting my emotions get the best of me because what I found out is ahead of us, I remembered--today is JA's Thankful Thursday. So, right now I choose just to be thankful for very good health insurance and good doctors. I choose not to let my worries about my children's health get the best of me right now, I am just going to be thankful because it's JA's Thankful Thursday! Honestly--I had that conversation in my head while driving--in between talking about the trucks with my 3 year old.
love ya!

Great thanks post! I love how you can do this each week. Some weeks I think I would be thankful for the week to be over! :) I too have a facebook account and LOVE keeping in touch with all my southern friends. I can add you but have no idea how to find you...

I was at Wal-mart last night too! Not super late though, around 7pm. I was getting princess stuff for Sasha's 3rd birthday--I guess I can be thankful I get to buy princess stuff--it was so much fun!

I love reading your thankful list. I'm also thankful that you got me making one of my own because it really does help me to look toward the "better" in difficult situations!
And I am so thankful you are one of my friends on facebook!
Here's to hot coffee in the mornings!!!
