Thankful Thursday

I learned this morning of the death of a young boy in our community. I'd been praying for him and reading the updates on his condition. I was surprised to hear of his death.

Things like this always make me pause longer and notice all the things for which I have to be thankful for....ordinary things that I may take for granted on other days.  Things like a runny nose to wipe, diapers to change, a call from a friend, lunch with another friend, homework time, our routine, messages from my Mom through the day.

This week I'm thankful for...

~ a love note from my husband. Such sweet words that encouraged my heart to read.

~ talks and hugs with my big boy. He's growing up so fast.

~ funny faces my sweet boy makes when he copies us. It is so cute.

~ going to a coloring club at a local library. It was very relaxing, and I met two new ladies.

~ friends I have in my life.

~ that he microwave went out when my husband was home and not when I was here by myself with Titus.

Have a day of blessings!
