This week I am Thankful For:
(The numbers correspond to my Gratitude Journal on reaching One-Thousand Gifts ... in other words, just ignore them) ;)
129 // I finished a big crochet project I had been working on. It's only taken me a few months. Whew! But it turned out so pretty & I'm so glad its finished. (... now what to do next?....)
130 // Receiving a precious card from a friend I met up with for coffee last weekend. I am always touched by the thoughtfulness of people. This card totally made my day.
131 // Infrared portable heaters. They have made life so much WARMER while our heater has been so wonky & its been so cold.
133 // I mentioned it earlier in my Monday post - but that Hershey pie my daddy made. Best Valentine gift a girl could get.
134 // A sweet husband on Valentines day that made me breakfast in bed, & got me flowers & balloons. It's our 23rd Valentine's together & he still shows me how much he loves me.
137 // Electricity popped off on Sunday evening ... when it was cold & snowing... & when The Walking Dead was supposed to come on. I was ready to FREAK OUT! But luckily, it was only out for like 5 minutes. Whew! That was a close one.
138 // Warm fuzzy flannel pants. I bought these things on Black Friday for like $5.00 at Kohls & totally forgot about them. Found them this week & MERCY - they have been a lifesaver. They are like wearing a warm soft blanket. I wish I tried them on sooner so I could have bought more. They are WONDERFUL!
140 // Nice people who tried to get my car out of their drive way when it was stuck in snow. And then kind enough to just let it sit there until the snow melted at the end of the day.
143 // Ricky stopped on his way home to make sure I had some all natural cranberry juice for my UTI. Even after being on his legs for 11 hours, he made sure to stop & haul through the grocery for me.
// For the Hope of Reunions in Heaven. Today is 1 year ago that Ricky's baby brother, Michael, passed away. Too young. Far too young. Still just as heartbreaking as it was 365 days ago. I can't believe its been a year already. How time flies by ... & how life continues on. You sit & think of all the things he has missed in his son's life & its just not the way it's supposed to be. But we cling to the thought of the reunions that will happen outside of this world. When we get to see Michael - all of our loved ones again. So many loved ones. What an amazing thing to hold onto. Thank you Jesus for that hope
So what are you Thankful For this week?
