Thankful Thursday: May 19, 2011

The lawnmowers are out in full force,
it is Thursday after all.

They buzz around on their fast-trimming thrones,
I wonder if they love their job as much as my Mr. thinks he would?

I've got a few minutes
in between oatmeal and dishes--
I better share my thanks now
before the day runs away with the spoon!

I am thankful for:

-my sweet almost-3-year old who reminds me how to laugh when I am being too serious

-my baby whose big blue eyes tease me with every smile

-my Mr. who drives all over the place, stays up late hours, and saves the world--one safety challenge at a time!

-modern conveniences (today I love: the toaster, the recliner, & our 35 mpg car)

-all the many ways to keep in touch (although I regularly debate about closing my facebook account)

-clean laundry

-fluffy pillows

-friends who ask & mean it

-opportunities to give back

-homemade chocolate chip cookie aroma in my house

-summer plans

-the Eternal Plan...which is what I've been thinking about in depth this week-- my heart is full for friends & family who are hurting, missing, unfair losses

I'm thankful for the blessings I recognize
and all of the tiny (& big) ones I take for granted.

I am thankful today.

You? Thankful Thursday?

I often debate about closing my FB account, too. Why can't I? Wanna make a pact? I will if you do! Altho, getting ready for a move, it'll definitely be harder to keep in contact with friends, but maybe that's what I NEED.
