So Much To Be Thankful For!

~I am thankful that my children are on the mend! It's been a long week, but God has given me the strength to get through it, sleepless nights and all.

~I am thankful for my husband who calls me everyday at least once while he is at work just because he loves me and wants to know how my day is going.

~I am thankful for the Word of God that is sharper than any two-edged sword and cuts straight to the heart of the issues in my life.

~I am thankful to hear the heat coming on this morning.

~I am thankful for my two little munchkins sitting next to me munching on their oh-so-healthy breakfast of fruit loops. They sure know how to make their mommy smile!

~I am thankful that the pumpkin farm field trip was rescheduled for Monday so Megan didn't miss it after all!

~I am thankful for Tylenol and Vicks and other medicines that help keep my kids comfortable when they are sick and make life a little bit easier.

~I am thankful for hot showers, and make-up that hides zits.

~I am thankful for my warm bodied husband who acts like a heater in bed and helps keep me warm at night.

~I am thankful for pumpkins, and fall foliage, and mums, and all the beautiful things the different seasons have to offer.

~I am thankful for my computer, and the interesting women whom I've met online.

~I am thankful for YOU! The people who read and comment on my blog!

Be blessed with more Thankful Thursdays by visiting Crystal.

In the 90's here again today but I can understand the concept of being cold :) Blessings on you and all you are thankful for...

Melissa--that is the sweetest thankful list! (I happen to be my husband's heater!) I love the colors of this season too---what an incredible blessing to have a husband that shows he is "thinking" of you throughout the day by calling!
Sweet precious list! I love it!!

The sickness things seems to be going around doesn't it? So glad your kids are feeling better.
I loved your list, what a blessing. I have a husband who is my heater too, on a cold night when I slip into bed I can trust him to warm me up :o))

Thanks for sharing your grateful heart this week!

I'm glad the kiddos are better. When they're sick, it makes us appreciate our own mothers even more! Sharing our thankfulness this way always reminds me of things I'm thankful for but forgot!

Children on the mend is a very good thing to be thankful for--bless them and YOU as they continue to feel better.

And a phone call from a loving and concerned husband should never be underestimated!

Nothing is worse than a sick child. I pray the Lord heals them quickly. I also treasure my husbands calls during the day. It is the most wonderful feeling to be loved.

God Bless!

You'll have to share what type of make-up you have that covers up zits, I've tried just about everything (but I think my skin issues are much more severe than yours and that probably makes the difference....)

glad the kids are on the mend! YAY! and YAY about the rescheduled field trip. That would have been a bummer to have missed it.

Bless you sweet one.
