Thankful Thursday August 23, 2007

I see so many people do a post on their blog called ‘Thankful Thursdays’. Sting My Heart hosts Thankful Thursday on her blog. It is wonderful to see how everyone can find something to be thankful for, regardless of their week. I decided to try it out. So here are my ‘thankfuls’ for this week.

* Friends – Over the last two weeks I have been able to make some new friends. I had coffee with one, reconnected over email with another and I am going to lunch today with a good friend. My life seems fuller when I have friends. It isn’t about popularity, it is about being able to see through someone else’s eyes and learning how to serve them often.

*Wheelwright – Tomorrows post will explain this better but I am so thankful for the men and women who give of their time to travel to Wheelwright and bring hope to a hopeless community

*Heath – I could list a million things as to why he is the best hubby for me but I think the best is that he is the best Daddy for my boys. Last night I was trying to get Isaiah to wash his own hair. I had hurt my knee a couple weeks back moving furniture and it was bothering me last night. Isaiah was throwing a fit and Heath went in a got down on his knees and washed his hair so I didn’t have to do it.

* Orders – I create custom invitations as well as decorate cakes. I shipped out a huge batch of invitations this week and I got an order for a birthday cake, too! It is fun to be creative and make something that someone else loves.

* Medicine – This is a loaded word but mostly I am talking about my grandfather. He is still in the hospital but he seems to be making strides and getting better. I am thankful for modern medicine and technology

I could truly go on and go. I hope you can find things to be thankful for in your week!

    Welcome to TT! A great list! Watching my hubby with children is one of the things that I fell in love with him first! And now, he’s a great daddy! I hope your knee heals quickly. I am also thankful for medicine…my father has been in and out of the hospital all year.
