Thankful Thursday: April 10th, 2014

It's Thursday here!
It's Thursday there!
It's Thursday, Thursday EVERYWHERE!

(well...excepting the locations in which the time difference makes it...tomorrow)

I am here to report that:
Spring has finally, truly sprung in Minnesota.

Sure...we still have *some* icy/snowy mounds,
and are still awaiting the first opening buds...
The sun is out, the sky is blue, 
the birds are a-tweeting, &
the big coats are

I am Thankful For:

-Mr. H's happy arrival home
-our last (?) big snow of the year (last Fri: 9 inches)
-our first snowman this year (Olaf!)
-time with Daddy in town
-an amazing, uplifting, jelly-bean-full weekend of General Conference
-our internet working 5 min before Conf started
-little miracles
-lunches outside in the sunshine
-plans turned upside down into better adventures
-calls from my brothers
-the eternal nature of our families, our very souls
-my shelf newly stocked with doula certification books
-the melting all around us into muddy spring (and my washer/dryer)
-swimming lessons for the boys
-IKEA kids eat free Tuesdays
-new furniture
-reminders of who I am
-made beds
-shaved legs (!!)
-healing prayers
-great visits with amazing women
-inspiring conversations
-miracle recognizing moments

-yellow flip flops on my little girl
-naptime (did I say that already?)

-friends who think of me in their errand running
-the freedom of playing OUTSIDE on their OWN (oh I love that gate, the fence, and the has been one.long.winter)

...See the joy in their faces?

Life is good.

Healing prayers are definitely on the top of my gratitude list. Your weekly thankful posts reminded me of this:

Youre are always so in tune and inspired, shara.
