Thursday Thanks Tank #178


Each Thursday I try to make a list of my thankful thoughts. Sometimes I jot it down on paper, sometimes I share that list here, and other times I just highlight one or two things that I am thankful for. This is my Thursday Thanks Tank.

I am thankful for:

  • Coffee in the morning
  • Losing a few pounds
  • My husband's hug and kiss before he leaves for work
  • Sunshine
  • Cute things my daughter says, like "Awesome is way better than cute."
  • Board games
  • School projects (and watching the kids work hard to accomplish the work)
  • Intercession. 
  • Tasty new dinner recipe (4 out 6 stars, and the 2 people that didn't love it thought it was good)
  • Neighborhood kids hanging out at our house (it seems our basketball goal is popular)
  • Marking off items on the To Do List
  • Silence (those rare moments when the house is peacefully quiet)
  • Playful noise (the sound of the kids playing together nicely)
  • Bubbles. Yesterday we played with bubbles outside. Right now, my 4 year old has the sink full of delightful sudsy bubbles and she is washing a few dirty tupperware dishes. 
  • Daily one-on-one time with my kids. Each afternoon, I spend time with my kids one-on-one.  We talk about the "high point" and "low point" of the school day. This week I've played a quick board game with them.  We all love it.  It is precious time. 
  • New lights. We have new lights in our bedroom. 
  • Tickle bugs. (You never know when those critters are about to strike!)
That's all of the time I have this afternoon to share my thankfulness...
Take time to be thankful. It's time well-spent.
