Thankful Thursday

A Belated Happy Thursday to you all!

Here goes:

1. That even though Daughter (#2) dropped and broke my camera tonight, God's grace was sufficient and I didn't get angry. Just sad.

2. That Daughter (#6) and Baby Boy survived their well-child visits and immunizations this morning. How fun to run into my friend from The Anderson Zoo at the Doctor's office!

3. That Baby Boy is up to a whopping *19* pounds! Woo hoo! Even if that is only the 5th percentile. He's growing!

4. For the warmer weather today and cooler weather tonight. Lovely!

5. That Son (#3) finished his "make your own paintbrush" project tonight - just in time for tomorrow!

6. That Daughter (#2) and Son (#3) both received the character award in Chapel yesterday for:
Discernment
The ability to understand the deeper reason as to why things happen

7. That tomorrow is Friday!

8. That even though Daughter (#2) has something weird going on after losing a tooth, the dentist said, yesterday, that it's just fine and will heal on it's own.

9. For my BFF Crazy Daisy who has taken on the huge burden of keeping me accountable for taking better care of myself: eating right, taking my vitamins, exercising, drinking water, etc. She's such a blessing to me!

10. For all of YOU who read Mrs. Troop and encourage me every day by your interest, thoughfulness and just by taking the time to care about my chaotic little life! Thanks!

Leave me a comment and tell me what YOU are thankful for this week! I love hearing it!

Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true,
whatsoever things are honest,
whatsoever things are just,
whatsoever things are pure,
whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report,
if there be any virtue,
and if there be any praise,
think on these things.

There you are! I was starting to sweat a little... worried you weren't going to get the Thankful Thursday in under the Thursday deadline.

That is SO funny about you and Mrs. Anderson Zoo! I read her blog after talking to you and thought,... huh.... I think they were at the same doctor today....small world!

Oh, and SO SORRY about your camera! Is it broken? Ugh.

And, LOVE your picture!

Happy Thursday friend!

Hey Mrs. Troop. It was good and fun to see you today too. I would post my "thankful thursday" but that would be the 4th post of the day. I need to draw the line somewhere. Talk to you soon.

I love your #3...I've had them on both ends of the percentile chart...my baby girl happens to be on the plus side of the chart this time! Baby #3 for me was and is my smallest...in fact, Baby #4 is only 2lbs lighter than Baby #3!! Glad your baby boy is growing and healthy...what a blessing:)
