Good Afternoon Dear Ones,
Welcome to Thankful Thursday!
"Be thankful unto him, and bless his name."
Today I am thankful for a sweet husband who
has lugged around a ton of dishes, taking them
back and forth to the store, and with a great
attitude I might add. Don't know what I would
do without you honey!
I am also thankful Target called back and said
they had another set of the square dishes, not
that it means they are the one yet, but it did make
me have to go looking to see if I could find accessories
to match them, and in the process found 2 other
nice sets of white dinnerware. They are still in the
box yet, cause I haven't had time to deal with them yet.
I am thankful for this truthful, lovely and whimsical book
I rec'd last week from my Sweet Friend Becky over
at Holiday in the Sun. I truly enjoyed reading it, and
enjoyed it so much I ordered 2 more to give away to
friends as well. If you are looking for a nice
Christmas present you might check out the writers
website. She has some other books as well, and she
draws all her own pictures. It truly is a sweet and fun
book to read and enjoy, and it also looks great on my
coffee table, I might add.
Also, she personally autographs each book.
How neat that she takes the time to do that!
I am of course, more thankful for my friendship with
Becky than the book, because she is truly a delightful
and encouraging person. She was also my inspiration
for blogging as well. Hubby had mentioned it to me
but when Becky started telling me about it, that just
sealed the deal. She is not just a bloggy friend, she has been
a real life friend for years now, I am not even sure for
how long actually. I am still trying to figure it out! lol
I am thankful that I got more Christmas shopping
done yesterday, and I would say I am 3/4 or more
I am thankful for all the $10.00 off coupons I got
online and in the mail, They sure came in handy!
I am thankful a good friend is coming over to
spend the evening with me while hubby is going
to an elders meeting. We haven't gotten a chance
to get together for awhile. So I will be truly
happy to see her, she is another sweetie!
I am thankful I have leftovers in the fridge
for din din, cause I had a lot of catching
up to do today since I was gone all day
I am thankful for my Oreck vacuum cleaner,
without which I would not be able to vacuum at all.
My old one was so heavy every time I vacuumed
I would mess up my neck or back, so this is so light,
it is wonderful. Hubby had to do all the vaccuming before
and he still vacuums for me a lot of times, which is so
sweet and helpful, but there are times when I need to
be able to do it when he isn't around, in fact, that is
when we bought it......when he had bypass surgery
4 yrs. ago and had a long recovery.
And I am just reminded of God's faithfulness to
protect as I was telling you about the Oreck.
Four years ago when Jim was just out of the
hospital the floor needed vacuuming, so I got
out the cleaner and thought I'll just have to do
this and be as careful as possible by going slower.
I got the vacuum out and took one stroke with
it and it died, and there was no reviving it, and
I really believe the Lord just protected me cause
he knew I was gonna hurt myself and then we
would be in a real mess!
So I thank God for His protection!
I am thankful for all the nice people I ran into
yesterday, whether store clerks or shoppers,
that just makes your shopping experience
so nice and warm. I love when people take
the time to converse with one another, and
be kind to each other. Another one of those
isn't this how life should be all the time!
Well, Sweet folks, gotta run get dinner
on the table, so make sure you leave me
some comments and tell me what you
are thankful for, let us spur one another
on to praise our Great Heavenly Father!
Have a Great Evening and thanks for
