Thankful Thursday

The weeks? They fly!

But it's Thursday, again, and I can't let the day go by without telling you how thankful I am! In no particular order. . .

~Healthy kids. So nice and so appreciated!

~Friends, Fellowship, Food and Happy Kids! We had dinner with the Zimm's Zoo last night and what FUN! Very brave of them to invite our family of ten. We had a wonderful time, good food and the kids played so well together. Thanks, Zimms!

~My Grandfather. He turned 95 two weeks ago and is nearing the end of his earthly life. I'm so grateful that he knows the Lord, has served Him faithfully all his life. He is such a blessing to our family. I'd appreciate your prayers for him and our family.

~Fall. I love Fall. Don't you? The crisp air, the falling leaves. It's delightful. Busy, but delightful.

~Clothes - as in seasonal. As in all sorted and switched out for Winter. As in my least favorite job in the world. As in DONE!

~The last week of Jr. High football. We've had fun, but we're tired. And we get a short break before basketball starts! Although I have a feeling that it may be even more hectic -at least I'll have the Coach to help out.

~Family. Parents who love us. Siblings to spend time with. Cousins for the kids to have as their best friends. I know we are abundantly blessed in this category and I don't want to forget that. And so much family so close by! All of our grandparents, parents and 9 of 11 siblings are nearby. That's a lot of fun!

~New Shoes! (and you thought all of these would be deep! HA!) I've fallen in love with these.

~Treadmill and MP3 player. We are becoming fast friends. And it's about time! Little Dude is 19 months old - it's taken awhile to get back to "normal".

~A niece who brings my kids home from school sometimes. Yeah! Like today! There's nothing like a whole day at home. Ahhhhhh.

~Laundry that is all caught up. I should take a picture of THAT!

Happy Thursday!

Be sure and leave me a comment to tell me what YOU are thankful for!

I am thankful, very thankful, for the helpers who helped to get the first day of applesauce making out of the way. Talking about least favorite things to do... but we sure do enjoy eating it! I am also very thankful for the cool weather, I love the fall! Very thankful that daughter #1 is now finished with drivers education clases--she passed with flying colors!
Thankful to be your friend, and share your blog. How neat! :)

Homemade caramel corn for a soccer game that was cancelled and now we can eat all the corn.

A stove that is heating the house nicely.

Only 14 weeks until this new baby arrives!

LOVE your list! I was in Missouri on Thursday and I was so thankful for nice weather so we could play outside on the farm!

We had our first snowfall! I love snow. I can't wait to ski. I am thankful four the six little blessings I have so far, and hopeful for more. I am thankful for the farm and the animals that help to feed us. I, too, am thankful for you. You have been a great positive influence on me. Tell your mom hello from me.
