Thankful Thursday



Today is Thanksgiving Thursday at Nicole's. I met Nicole a week ago and thought this was a great idea especially with everything going on in my life right now. I have found myself over the past few days being worried about our future and not looking at the different things I should be thankful for. So, here is my list of things I am thankful for today from this week:


I am thankful for the college kids who STILL want to be with us and come over for special days. I was so concerned they would leave us after Damon lost his job, but they haven't!!! I am so thankful for that.


I am thankful for all those have helped us with our new house. We have had a slew of guys over at the house this week doing odd and end jobs so we can get into the house. Thank you, Rick, Tyler, Rylee, Alex, David, Phillip, Eric and Larry.


I am thankful for wonderful friends who have and continue to stand by us during this time.


I am thankful for job possibilities. Although we have not had any specific offers, we are finding jobs opportunities - now just to try to take advantage of them.


I am thankful for a God who is always there. When I start to waver, I know He is right where He was when I wandered waiting for me to come back to Him.


I would encourage any of you to join in on Thankful Thursdays and look at the positive in your life!
