can't remember the last time I did a TT post, so it's way overdue!! and appropriate on the coat tails of our worship service at church last night. So...
1.) I'm thankful for air-conditioning. oh my word it is so hot in Alabama right now. I just want to whine about it. anyone else?
2.) for kids who are healthy, smart and (usually) happy. such a blessing, these little devils are. even in the times that they make me question what I was thinking by having them, I wouldn't change a thing. I am fully aware that it can always change in the blink of an eye.
3.) So thankful for Daddybird's job. He's had steady work for 13 years and we've been fortunate enough for me to stay home with all of the babybirds. In this age when jobs aren't a guarantee, I'm exceedingly grateful.
4.) health. we're reasonably healthy. we've (obviously) never been hungry or had any major health problems. How 'bout this? Luke is going on 10 years antibiotic free!!
5.) i'm thankful we have a home big enough (even if we feel a little cramped sometimes...only from our abundant blessings) for us that we can afford. if we can love them and feed them and shelter them, a good part of our job as parents is taken care of. Bonus that they let us live here, too.
6.) my church family. we are part of a church the truly tries to show Jesus to the world, not just other Christians. i'm not only thankful, but proud to be a part of that.
7.) friends. so glad we can meet up with people we've loved for years, whether it's for a week, a night or even a lunch hour and stay connected. God has blessed us with such special people in our lives and I know it's because we found each other through Him.
There is more. So much more. But I'm not feeling exceptionally thankful for the Maggie moo's & hot sun at the moment (stick with Pop Ice, people), so I'll leave you with this:
