Thankful Thursday

This week I am Thankful For:

.,. the weather wasn't that bad at all for the maternity session with my friends. I thought it was going to be miserably humid. It was warm, but not miserable at all.  It helps that they both are such troopers. 

Also thankful that I know this couple so well, I can show up at a photo session in mix-matching running clothes & no make up :)

... all the awful storms & floods that came through missed our house. Whew!  I was so thankful when horrible winds came through, & I was at work & I get so nervous for my dogs, the storms shifted & our home was literally right on the edge of the storm where it wasn't that bad at all.  Thank you Lord!

... for Ricky's phone.  In all of those storms, Ricky left his phone OUTSIDE on the patio table.  I mean, we had flood warnings, tornado watches, thunderstorm warnings... & the whole time - his phone is sitting out in the middle of it.  & he didn't know it, so it stayed out the next day - in the SCORTCHING HEAT!  Right there baking in the sun.... & the phone is totally OK & still works.  Thank you Lord!

Basically how we acted when we found his phone still was working!

... our Dropcam camera's. I love I can check in on my dogs & our house all throughout the day.  Always good to check up on what Harvey is tearing up.

... Got a card in the mail from our youngest girl.  It was so sweet & just so thoughtful.  Made both mine & Ricky's day.

Who doesn't love Snail Mail?

...  Bruno's infection on his arm seems to be doing better!

... Sweet words from youth kiddos. I had one of the kids come up & tell me that my message I gave at Merge Camp - A YEAR AGO - has really been striking him lately & is making him want to really pursue his relationship with God.  OK... if you were to ask me what I taught last year, I would have to really think about it.  That this young man still remembered & that it still is impacting him?  Blew me away.  I'm so thankful to know that kids are actually listening... & learning....

... Wednesday was finally a day with no rain & it wasn't miserably hot.  I got to get a run in outside... on dry pavement... without dying in humidity!  I'm totally thankful for that!

... as always, I'm so thankful for those of you that link up with me. I so love seeing what fun, exciting blessings are happening in your lives!

What are you Thankful For this week?


  1. Yesterday was miserable weather wise here, but thankfully the rain came and today it's seriously glorious!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I'm with you on the weather. The mix of the rain and humidity has been hard but we had a couple beautiful days here and I really appreciated it! I went out for a run on the track on Tuesday evening and didn't feel like I was going to die.

  3. Our weather was like yours yesterday. Loved it totally! Wow that must be a really good phone to have survived that!!

    Thanks for doing Thankful Thursday every week and letting us join in. Have a great day!

  4. I need a Dropcam camera to watch Brady!! And so glad Bruno is doing better - happy Thursday!

  5. I can't believe his phone survived! That's amazing. That card is so cute! I love it!

  6. Thank the Lord everyone and the phone came through okay! We had some of that here, too. Tuesday evening's storm was what I believe they call a gully-washer!

    I find it highly amusing that you have a security camera so you can watch who's already in the house, not who might get in that shouldn't be there. lol

  7. So good that the storm passed you without any damage. Can't believe the phone made it through all that and still works!

  8. is it me or is something always going on with ricky and his phones? didn't one get chewed up recently? so thankful it's ok! whew!
