Thankful Thursday #2


I didn't want to write for thankful thursday this morning, because my fx wrist was hurting, and I wasn't feeling very thankful. The weather was dark and it was snowing again - not very Springlike.
But as I sit here, I realize there are some things I'm thankful for!

I'm thankful that it was my left wrist, and not my right one.
I'm thankful it was only a wrist that was fx and not my head! :)

I'm also thankful for:
- a warm house
- having Starbucks coffee and banana bread with my DH
- a phone so I can call and chat with my friends
- a computer so I can "visit" with my blogging friends
- for May Day! We used to celebrate it with May baskets
- and especially I'm thankful for the Lord's care for me and our family

I am SO thrilled to have found your blog! We are of the same generation! I just glanced through the last 5 or 6 of your blogs and discovered the ones about your parents. I am so excited to read them, a little later. I have loved missions since I was a child. So many people were part of the China missionary scene--Ruth Bell Graham, Elizabeth Elliot, John and Betty Stahm, and I know there were many more that just don't come to mind right now.

I'm bookmarking your blog for sure. I am going to enjoy my visits so much.

Warmly,

There are so many times I do not feel thankful but once I start reminding myself of what I do have to be thankful for it is amazing how many things I come up with!

I have a cup of Starbucks and homemade chocolate zucchini (a small piece..as I am still going sugar free over here) bread..yum!

I like this. I can really identify with your comments. I have had a bad right knee for many months. I can still be thankful that the left one is OK. There is so much to be thankful for. God has been so good to me. Like you, I am thankful for all the new blogging friends I've found on the internet.
I Hope you have a great weekend.
