Thankful Thursday

Aaaaaaand - here is is, our first installment of Thankful Thursdays.  I'd really love for you to help me think of a better name, too.  Glimpses of Gratitude? Grateful and Glad? Thankful and ....Therrific?  .... Yeah, that's why I need your help.  Send me some ideas - please, if not for me, for your own sake - so you limit your exposure to my cheezy ideas!

All jokes aside, the things I am truly thankful for this week are...

  • Safe Travel - We drove to St. Simon's today.  Every time we get on the road as a family for a trip like this I am keenly aware of how blessed we are to make it to our destination safely. (and how glad I am that our old van made another trip without something needing repair!)
  • Family vacations.  We don't get these often enough (does anyone?), but I so enjoy them when we do.  The camp guy is actually working for part of this trip (it's work trip that we've extended to make into a vacation), and of course, the boys and I will be doing school work, but Mimi and P-pop are joining us the day after tomorrow and we're going to make lots of time to just have fun together.
  • My family.  All of them.  They drive me crazy sometimes, but when it comes right down to it my family rocks.  I'm so, so lucky to have them.
What are you thankful for today?

Love Y'all!


  1. That my young 'un is beginning to act more like himself as he recovers from his tonsillectomy, and that my older one loves being able to help do things at the church (like set up for a giant yard sale.) For all of my family. And for beautiful weather.

  2. Thanks, Treva. Glad he's feeling better!

  3. I like Thankful Thursday, I like the idea of it too, it's something upbeat to read in the morning. =D


I love to hear from you - keep those comments coming!
