Giving Thanks

Today I am grateful for:

- The wind blowing the beautiful red leaves all around our yard
- A chance to express myself creatively
- Hope
- That my "boyfriend" doesn't have to work every Saturday
- Hot shower: to wake me up, to keep me clean, to make me warm, to help me think, for alone time, no one can hear me cry

I am thankful
-that my daughter is my friend; who could have known but God!

-for being at home three days in a row!

-that my husband looks the other way when the creative juices are flowing and the housework is lacking

-a thirteen year old who will hold my hand in public

Amy,
I'm sure we've all been grateful for the shower right along with you. Tears flow easily, and are washed away...a very important time. I have used it myself, many times. I pray that your tears will be lessened, friend.

I am thankful
-that Jen is feeling better from the chicken pox
-that my husband thinks of me first
-that I have a husband who really cares about his kids and how they're raised
-that my husband sacrifices so easily for us
-that God is helping me to care more about my home, and being a worker at home
