Thankful Thursday

Welcome to Thankful Thursday! Today we are joining together at Laurie's place, Women Taking a Stand.

This week I am thankful for . . .

~ my husband making my birthday special. He came home last Friday with a chocolate chip cookie cake for me. It was quite a cute surprise I must say! He knew that was the kind of cake I wanted, I just hadn't told him my Mom was also planning to make one! He also helped our son make me a birthday card. He does this every year and for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, and I just appreciate that so much.

~ my sweet boy being excited about my birthday. He wanted to decorate the house. When we got home he'd put up streamers and balloons with Gramma's help.

~ getting to spend my birthday with some of my favorite people. My Mom came (with the chocolate chip cookie cake plus an angel food cake plus a yellow cake she'd made for my cousin). My cousin's birthday was Monday, just two days after mine, and I'm glad we got to be together again this year.

~ God's grace. I've been reminded of this all week that I need to show that grace to others.

~ Enjoying a lovely sunny day! I was thrilled to hang a load of clothes on the line. The past few weeks it seems on the days I needed to wash it was raining or too cold, so I dried them inside or in the dryer. When the sun was out this week I grabbed enough dirty clothes to make a load so I could go out and hang them! It was a tad bit chilly but the sun was so nice!

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Have a day of blessings!

Happy, Happy Birthday, Bethany!!
Hope it was a wonderful day for you!! Did you say what day in March you were born? (If you did, I missed it). So sweet that your son & hubby made you a card!
My oldest daughter's birthday is today (March 4th).
Have a blessing-filled week!

Yeah - hot dogs on the grill is just about as easy as leftovers! I'll be cooking tomorrow but it will be easy...beans and cornbreads.

Hope you're having a great day!
