Thankful Thursday #61

Here are some things that I am thankful for this week:

1. Teamwork: because I accomplish more when I work with others.
2. Halloween: because it was so much fun watching the kids dress up and be silly.
3. Mistakes: because I can grow and learn after my mistakes.
4. Safety: because a friend that was in a serious car accident this week is okay. He has a long road to recovery but he is okay.
5. Voting priviledge: because it is freedom and an opportunity to make a difference.
6. Playdates for my kids: because it can be such a nice change of pace.
7. Hand-me-down clothes: because it is so wonderful having cute clothes for Elsie that I didn't have to go buy.
8. Learning from my kids: beause I learn a lot from them. It is convicting when I learn life lessons from my kids (like the life lesson I discovered this week).
9. Coffee: because I love my cup of joe (and I am thankful I won this contest).
10. Lists: because this list helps me be intentionally thankful, because without my lists (I am thinking: grocery list, my To Do list, and my christmas list), I would never feel like I get anything accomplished.

That's all the time I have for now. I am going to continue to count my blessings today. I encourage you to do the same. Now I am off to tend to my To Do list!

Isn't it wonderful when we're able to learn from our children? They really do have many things to teach us.

Thank you for sharing such a wonderful list.

Thanks for sharing. And, hey, I love my coffe too. Which is one of the ways God has blessed me. We are missionaries in Costa Rica where coffee is the main export. In fact, I have coffee bushes grwing in front of my house. Blessings!

I'd just like to share: I am sipping a "gindersnap" latte from the 'bucks right now and thinking of/missing you. I asked what the difference was b/n this one and Gingerbread...I was told, "Marketing." So, there you have it! :)
