This week I feel so blessed and highly favored. I think that it is the cooler weather. Autumn is my favorite time of year. I long to put up my Fall decor. I would have them out all year if my dh wouldn’t protest.

I am so thankful for the following blessings that have been put in my path this week….

1) The cooler weather. It hasn’t reached over a 100 here this week. lol!

2) Our newly homeschool co-op that we are trying to put together. I have met and have become close acquaintances with other mommies that strive to give their children a godly education at home, but wanting them to be sociable.

3) That I live in America!

4) Health & Healing

5) My Parents had a wonderful time(even thought they didn’t take me ): )  and arrived home safetly from Italy yesterday.

Thankful Thursday ~ Sept 6th


This week I have several things that I am so grateful for that God has blessed upon the undeserving me.

1) I am so grateful that my two year old wasn’t admitted to the hospital last Saturday and the he is the wild man he always was after a horrible virus. I never dreamed of wanting my rambunctious two year old to pull one of his disastrous stunts. LOL!

2) I am so grateful that we as a family have so many good christian friends that help us when we need them the most. Thank you, Denise and Mark. Your kindness has been such a blessing to us.

3) This is a biggie for me!!!!! THANK YOU, Lord for allowing the boys to sleep in and allowing me to wake up past 7 am for the last 5 days! Amen! I have always been forced to get up between 5 and 6 a. I love it!! Oh ~ Thank you, again, Lord!!!!

See what others are thankful for at Stingmyheart.
