Thankful Thursday, 4-30-09

It's been awhile since I've done a Thankful Thursday.  Not because I'm not thankful, just because I simply haven't done it.

But this week I'm especially feeling the need to share how blessed and grateful I am.

I'm thankful for my kids because as much as they make me crazy, I probably wouldn't even bother getting out of bed if it weren't for them.  They are my sanity AND my insanity all rolled into one!

I'm thankful for a husband who may not be perfect or even everything I'd really like him to be right now, but is amazing at letting me have the time to what needs to be done right now.  Not only does he not ever make me feel guilty about it but he often tries hard to ease the guilt I put on myself.

I'm thankful for a friends and extended family who, although I will likely never take them up on them, have made wonderful offers to help DO for us.  For me it's not about doing, maybe it will come to that but for now them just BEING, makes such a huge difference.

I'm thankful for every single phone call, visit and real conversation with my mom.  I'm thrilled that today they are ale to get away for a night to celebrate their anniversary!  And even more thrilled that she plans to attend a Mother Daughter brunch with my on Saturday.  While it's always possible that she may not feel up to it when Saturday comes, I'm genuinely just thankful that she feels well enough to want to go.  If we do get to go I'll just be that much more thankful.  (Last year we did not go.)

And last but most definitely NOT least, I'm thankful for God and his amazing works.  For some reason I never cease to be surprised by how I can be given just what I need, when I need it, sometimes in the most unexpected ways.
This verse popped up as a status update for one of my friends on Facebook the other day when I REALLY needed it.

Joshua 1:9, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous do not be terrified; do not be discouraged. For the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
