Thankful Thursday

Life holds so many simple blessings, each day bringing its own individual wonder.
~John McLeod

As we end 2010, we are truly thankful for all the blessings God has given us this year.

~We always have enough!! Our enough is so much more than 95% of the world. We are truly thankful for God's provision.

~A surprise, paid day off with Jason, especially after working so many late nights it was a true joy to have him home on Wednesday. Aidan seriously screamed with excitement when I told him Jason had called to say he had the day off.

~All church Sabbath - On Sunday our church held an all church sabbath and we thoroughly enjoyed the day by hanging out in our jammies and playing games all day.

~Family fun - Finger Painting, ooze making, Alayna being silly & pretending to sleep in her baby doll carrier, raspberries given by a sweet 2 year old and the belly giggles that follow, not having anywhere we have to be, board game marathons & daddy bringing Alayna's outdoor toys inside for the winter (who says you can't play at the park when it's cold outside?)!

~Operation underpants continues to be a big success.

~Our good health. As a cancer survivor, I don't take health for granted. I am thankful for each day that I get to spend with my family. I know that when we are dealing with a cold or fever there are so many out there that are fighting cancer or other diseases. We pray for those that are battling illness.

~We are truly thankful that several kids from Reece's Rainbow have found their forever families this Christmas season. However, there are still many more kids listed. Please consider a tax deductible donation and continue to pray for these children.

We hope you have a moment to reflect on your 2010 blessings (share a few please!)
We pray that you have a safe and happy New Year.
We look forward to sharing more thankfuls with you next year!

Of course I'm thankful for my beautiful Ukrainian princess. I look at her every day and thank God that everything worked out and we could rescue her!
Thankful that Jax has had no big hospital stays since August! That may be a new record!

I love these posts too. It reminds me that I need to be thankful, even when I'm grumpy and feeling sorry for myself ;)
