Thursday Thanks Tank #119

I am thankful for YOU. Why on earth are you reading my blog? I haven't posted in week. What made you drop by? You don't have to answer that. I am thankful you take the time to visit my little spot in blogland.

Where have I been? I have been busy... too busy. I am overloaded, spinning out of control with activity. My life (this current spin cycle I am on) represents "Gravity of Motion" right now. I have been struggling to keep up with everything that I have on my plate. When I have had free moments, I have pulled myself away from the computer. Never fear, I am still blogging. It just can't be a daily devotion right now.

I am committed to cultivating a thankful spirit. So, it's Thursday night and I am thinking about thankfulness. It's hard not to think about love this week. Following that train of thought (just slightly), here are some things related to my love that I am thankful for:

No bake oatmeal cookies: Have you had those no bake chocolate oatmeal cookies? These were, perhaps, the first cookies I gave my husband. We were in high school. I made him cookies. It was sweet. Except, he said they looked like turd cookies. I smile just thinking about that now.

My Promise Ring: I have a promise ring. My husband gave it to me 4 years ago on Valentine's Day. He was in Iraq. He sent it to me and promised to do everything possible to come home safely.

Wow, there you go- 2 things- turd cookies and a promise ring and I am stuck. I can't think at all.

I'll let you think about that. Maybe it's a good thing I have been slow to post lately.

Hey, I'm just wondering how those "Turd cookies" would taste with sunbutter instead of peanut butter. Bet my boys would love those. (Anyone tried that?)

turd cookies sound delicious - NOT!!! ;~} no bake cookies on the other hand do sound pretty good right now!

Missy said...

While they are not pretty, "turd cookies" are delicious! And so easy to make! What's not to love about them? LOL

I have been wondering if you have made those cookies with sunbutter. Those were my favorite cookies, but I haven't made/had them since Sarah was diagnosed with peanut allergy. Let me know if you try it with sunbutter.

you are so cute. I was wondering where you were. You are missed when you are away. I don't give anyone the chance to miss me:) LOL
I love those cookies and a promise ring for that reason would be pretty special to me too. Your hubs is so sweet.

I bet Sunbutter would work just fine, but I've not tried it.

In College on the AG campus, I had made them for a guy as well and learned they are also known as "COW PILES"...LOL

He told you they looked like turds?? I mean, yeah, they do, but he told you that?! I would have died.

When I saw this post on my dashboard I was thinking, "I am so thankful for these posts because you always manage to bring me back to reality and to appreciate my life."

So- that's why I return. Because you inspire me to be a better me for my God.

Hahaha...your post made me laugh (cookies) and made me cry (promise ring).

I understand about being busy...that's why I'm commenting on your Thursday Thanks Tank on FRIDAY. ;-)

We celebrated our youngest son's birthday today. If you get a chance, check out my post about him.

Have a great weekend!
