Thankful Thursday

Although we received news that has shaken our family's foundation to the core on Tuesday... I still want to focus on what there is in life to be thankful for. So, with that, I give you Thankful Thursday.

I am thankful for:
  • chilly fall nights where you can leave the windows cracked and enjoy the air.
  • fireplaces to roast marshmallows.
  • hot chocolate.
  • camping
  • good friends
  • the love of family
  • the gift of photography
  • having a serving, giving heart that wants nothing more than to help and provide for people.
  • for three beautiful, healthy children that are the joy in my heart.
  • stretchy, capri pants
  • a handsome, loving, forgiving husband to be with me through life's journey.
  • toothpaste... seriously, could you not do without that minty fresh feeling?
  • a sweet, nutty Boston Terrier I call "Lola" to snuggle with at night.
  • Paula Deen -- love her!
  • mercy
  • iGoogle Reader -- gotta have my blog addiction filled daily!
  • grace
  • Amazing blog writers all in the blogosphere!
  • You -- those that choose to fill me with pithy comments and walk this road of life alongside me.

Sorry, your family received bad news this week. I love that you were be able to see past that and still be appreciative of the good things around you.

Hope everything works out. Hugs and prayers.
