Thankful Thursday - The Thankful Book

Once again I'm late.  Everyone else got on the One Thousand Gifts train last year, and I'm just now boarding...

You know what they say - better late than pregnant!  So here I am making a list of all the gifts in my life I am thankful for.  I'll spare you having to listen to them all, but I'm surprised at how easily they come to me.  I'm at number 286 and I've not been doing this a month.

4) Rain pinging against a tin roof
19) Bookshelves full of my husband's love for me
44) Thank you note from a coworker which made me laugh
53) Hands to serve
67) Attending church with my parents
84) MIL's snicker doodle cookies
102) Excel training plans
120) Pay-day Friday
159) New authors suggested by a friend
160) Asthma medication as a "luxury" rather than needed to live
192) Obnoxious laughter with my sister's little man about a picture which looks like my father
202) Allergy shots
219) Flannel sheets on a cold night
243) "Still I know He'll be right there beside me" ~ Leaning (Everlasting Arms) choir special

What are you thankful for today?  This week?  This year?


  1. I'm thankful for good insurance, even though I'm at the point in the year where we have to meet our deductible again.

  2. Baby giggles, a close family, sonic ice, my car, eggs Benedict...just a few on my mind this morning:)

  3. I didn't jump on the bandwagon for awhile, either. It really is so good to focus on all that God has given, isn't it? I'm thankful for my sweet 12-year-old boy today! :)
