Giving Thanks: A list of things

I am thankful for....

Cold fronts.

A beautiful home to live in.

My car "Coco" and what awesome gas mileage I get in it.

George and Paula.


Waffle made Friday mornings with my son.

Cool air wafting in through open windows in my house.

Real, true, honest friendships - and the faces that come to mind as I write those words.

The opportunity that Todd and I had to attend The Journey this year at different times.

All three of my wonderful grandparents.

Pumpkin pie.

Home videos of my childhood.

Precious friendships.

A potty-trained two-year old.

Hope, longing and dreaming.

The smell of goodies baking in the oven.

God's constant providing for us.

Sunrises and lavender colored skies.

Two wonderful jobs with two wonderful employers.

Still mornings with just me, my coffee, my Bible, my journal, and God.

God's grace, mercy, and forgiveness.

Minimal RA pain.

Money for luxuries like internet, cable, AC/heating and pest control.

Christmas music.

Blessings in disguise.


Tears, healing and freedom.

A fabulous mom-in-law who takes care of Tommy in my absence as I work.

Health insurance.

Water fights in the front yard with my guys.

My dad and Robin.

Hunter coming home to us.

Food, running water, and a roof over my head.

Twinkle lights.

Experiencing sweet redemption.


Tommy's from-the-gut laughter.

Sunday naps.

A calendar full of ministry and fun activities.


Life - learning how to fight for it and really live it.

Jesus and the hope of the cross.

God making things beautiful in HIS time and not mine.
