Thankful Thursday

I’m unabashedly stealing this idea from Shauna; mostly because I’ve been a little whiney as of late, but also as an exercise to remind myself of the many things I have to be thankful for.

  • Friends. I am blessed with many. This week I am most thankful for Ivy who has pushed me to do something I would have chickened out of, on my own. Margo for hanging in there with me through this obnoxious summer. Finally for Lori, who doesn’t have a blog, but should. I used to be jealous of all the time Margo spent with her, but I’ve gotten over it.
  • Tim. I don’t know how I got so lucky. He may drive me out of my mind at times, but even at his most obnoxious, he’s still a man I’m proud to call my husband.
  • My boys. Aidan is working overtime to establish his independence, so these past weeks have been rough. A lady I know told me that if I get it right with him, peer pressure won’t really be on my list of things to worry about. He’s one headstrong little guy; I’ve just got to point him in the right direction. Mark, when he isn’t getting up three times a night, is a joy to be around. I’ll keep him anyway.
  • Time. I’m thankful that I have time to give to others. I might complain about nursery duty or complain about being busy, but the fact is I do have the time, most of the time.
  • Health. Overall, we are all healthy and that fact is priceless.
    • On a related note… soft TP. No, really, it’s the time of year when my allergies flare up. Thank goodness for soft TP. I’m easy to spot, I’m the redhead with the red nose and watery eyes, carrying a roll of TP.
  • My church. I’ve never belonged anywhere with such a strong sense of support and community; it’s an amazing feeling. I’ve never really experienced the safety net of family, so life always felt tenuous. Now, I know if something were to happen to Tim or I, sickness or accident, we wouldn’t face it alone.

There are many more things, but those boys of mine have not received their memo re: discontinuation of crack of dawn wake up calls.

What are you most thankful for, at this moment?
