Thursday Thanks #111

Each Thursday I make a list of my thankful thoughts. I spend time throughout my day appreciating the little and big things in my life. My posted list gives you a glimpse of my thankful heart.

My Thursdays have been so busy lately that I find myself considering whether I should make my Thanks Tank list on Wednesday night so I can post the Thanks Tank list before the end of the day on Thursday. I decided that would ruin the point entirely for me. I'd rather spend my busy Thursday being thankful and posting a list just if I get to it.

Here's my list for today:

1. Comic Strips that make me feel normal:

2. A SAFE Halloween: We had lots of cute kids and candy. We did not have any allergic reactions. I am very thankful.
Here's my boy, safely eating candy (love the smile with the mouthful!):

3. Hair that grows back: My husband gave my 4 year old a mohawk last night. I really think my son looks cute with a mohawk. That said, I am thankful his hair grows back. (This is his "Bad to the Bone" face.)

4. Friendship, laughter, and coffee: I had such a wonderful time with our friends this past weekend. We laughed (until I cried). We stayed up way too late at night. We got our first Gingerbread latte of the season.

5. A found ring.
6. My husband's hope in his favorite football team.
7. Going out with the girls.
8. A great report from my son's teacher.
9. Gingerbread lattes.
10. Encouragement from friends.

11. My husband not waking me up with his Halloween mask on.

Let's see . . . I'll make a multi-faceted comment:
*I think your perspective on TTT is a good one. It doesn't need to be pre-planned, but as an overflow of your thankful heart throughout the day.
*Love "For Better or For Worse". That one, Calvin & Hobbes, and Baby Blues are all favorites of mine that make me feel normal (for the most part, hee, hee).
*Thrilled that your Halloween was safe. Answered prayers! I guess I had the reaction instead of David, for which am so thankful.
*I love all your children, Jane Anne, but that Thomas looks so cute with a mohawk and that face is priceless! He and I and my boy would be big buds if y'all lived close!
*I agree with the previous commenter. This is a great photo of you. You're looking so thin. : )
Thanks for always being consistent with these posts. They are such a delight to my day.

I love the comic strip. That is my life to a "T".

I love all those pictures! And I don't think I could give my son a mohawk, no matter how fast it grew in - you're so brave!

And now I want to hunt down a gingerbread latte....
