It's Thursday. Time to purposefully and intentionally look back over the week and be thankful for the hand of God we see in our lives, filling up our tank with an attitude of thankfullness. Pam at Without Fear is the creater of Thursday Thanks Tank. If you'd like to join in, pop over and let her know.
-So thankful for the sunshine and blue skies today. After a week of solid rain it is so wonderful to have the blueness, the brightness and the warmth. To say nothing of being able to get the kids outside! Six pre-schoolers who have not been able to get outside for a week tends to bring out the crazy's.
-I'm thankful for crayons. I certainly am. Many happy minutes are spent on rainy weeks drawing and coloring with the kids.
-But I am thankful for the rain, too. It's been sooo dry around here. The farmer's are probably doing the happy dance after last weeks moisture.
-I'm very thankful for good friends. I don't know what I would do without them. They've really been there for me this last couple of weeks.
-I'm thankful for benefit plans. With all the dental and doctor visits and prescriptions we've had in the past few months, I am so grateful the costs to us was much smaller than without it.
-I am thankful for my coffeepot in the morning. And I am so serious about that. I am not a morning person and that black brew sure helps me to get my eyes open.
-I am thankful that the gas man comes out for free today to see what on earth is wrong with our furnace. Not that we'll need heat now that it's getting nice, but it's good to know your furnace will blow warm air when required and not cold.
-I'm thankful that we've been able to fill both of our vehicle's gas tanks this week. Heavens to murgatoid it's getting expensive! Here it's $1.29 a litre. Times that by about 4 to get a gallon price. Sheesh. And I live in an oil rich area.
What are you thankful for this week?
