Thankful Thursday {Linkup 26}

Thankful Thursday
Take time to be thankful for everything that you have.  You can always have more, but you could also have less.

This week I am Thankful For:

... Gordon Jones.  That's the name of the young man I saw in the motorcycle accident one week ago today.  I am so thankful for his recovery.  He is now out of ICU, off of a ventilator & while he has surgeries ahead of him to repair his arm & leg, HE IS ALIVE... & thriving!  I honestly believe this is a miracle.  I have no idea if I'll ever see this man again in my lifetime, but I am still praying for him & he'll always be a reminder of God's protection to me.

Here's the young man you've all been praying for

... Facebook & the power it holds - putting me in contact with family & friends that are giving me updates on Gordon.  I am so thankful for those updates.

... Our human bodies.  Though they fail & ultimately return to dust, they are tough.  They go through so much & are made to be strong.  God's creation is amazing to me.

... the cooler air. Oh my gosh - it hasn't felt like June/July at all the past week.  If Summer was like this every time, I'd look more forward to it.

... Going to see my little Grand-Dudes this weekend.  I can't believe how big they are getting. 

... Love that Luke loves his Pappy so much.  Julie put up this picture & told us that Luke only wants to wear his ripped jeans because that's what Pappy wears.  Ricky is such a clothing diva & is constantly buying jeans that have rips & tears in them.  Julie said she's just happy that Luke rips his own jeans & doesn't want the ones you have to pay double the money for because they have 'designer' rips :)

... my cousin & his wife had triplets born this past week.  Now that's an addition to the family!  But momma & babies are doing well. 

... Laughing at Harvey Dent.  We have been getting flies in our house since its been so nice & we've been keeping the back door open & windows... watching him chase the flies has been nothing but pure entertainment.  Love that dog.

What are you thankful for?
