As I only just returned from my vacation I am so thankful for the down time.  It was a wonderful 4 days of relaxation.  In our go go go world I am thankful that we can get away for a few days.  Being that we have both been at our jobs 15+ years we have the paid time away from our jobs! 🙂

Day 22 Giving Thanks

givingthanks

God’s plan.  Weeks ago I was going through much pain at the “loss” of my daughters.  Even though this is part of the growing process I seemed to second guess why in the world we would even have children just to be hurt by them.  Now, a few mere weeks later,  I am enjoying the fact that there are fewer people to keep up with, to feed, and to schedule my life around.  God’s plan didn’t seem to make sense to me but I now see how things are to work.  I still miss the girls, and one has yet to reconcile, but I know that God’s plan is better than mine.  It will happen and we will continue to grow as a family and in The Spirit.

This morning I am thankful for a community that comes together to help meet the needs of a family who has a child with are disease.  Saturday evening we attended a fundraiser to help raise money to help a young couple whose oldest second child has disease that her body does not process proteins.  This condition causes lots of secures.  She has to be monitored 24/7.  It fills my hear with hope in humanity as we all come together for this need.

Day 19 Giving Thanks

givingthanks

I love praise and worship music! When my day isn’t going the best all I have to do is turn on some praise and worship music and the tone of my day changes.  I don’t live very close to the city so it is sometimes hard to pick up the Christian radio.  I am thankful today for satellite radio.   At the touch of a button I can hear my preferred  Christian music station!

Day 18 Giving Thanks

When I watch the news, which I don’t much anymore, I see all the upheaval in the big cities and wonder why anyone would actually choose to live there.  I prefer the nice quiet pace of the small town in which I live.  It isn’t as small as it was while I was growing up but it’s still quite small in comparison to most.  If I wanted to I could walk from one end of town to the other in about 20 minutes.  If I take my time.   They say they roll up the sidewalks around here by 8:00 pm each night.  That is about true, there isn’t many people out and about at that hour.  I am thankful for our small town of 3,843 people.

Day 17 Giving Thanks

With our vacation only being five days away… I am thankful today for Cold medicine.  Yes folks, I am down with a bad cold.  Even though I ache all over, sneeze and blow my nose more often than I care to say, I go to work.  Why?  because I can’t miss when I have so much to do prior to a week off.  My cold medicine of choice keeps me going through the day while the night-time formula helps me sleep.

Day 16 Giving Thanks

You know I talked about different kinds of thankfulness early on in this challenge.  Not everything that we are thankful for is “EARTH SHATTERING-LY” awesome.  But to me this THING that I am thankful for today has helped me feed my family for years!  It makes my meals so easy but it does require a little planning as to what goes in it and what goes with.  After working all day I just come home and whip up some sides to go with my main course that has been cooking all day.  It’s my greatest kitchen gadget…  My CROCK POT is HIGH on my thankful list today.  I am using it almost everyday this week that I am cooking.
