It's a cold one this morning... -4 on the thermometer outside my kitchen window. Brrr! It would be a good day to stay inside with the critters and curl up with a good book, but unless my client's parents don't want her out in this cold, I will be heading out in about an hour.
I'm linking up with bloggy friend Rebecca Jo @ Knit By God's Hand today for Thankful Thursday, our weekly chance to share all the goodness God's been showering on us through the week.
This week finds me thankful for...
** My warm, comfortable home...fuzzy socks...plenty of fleecy blankets...and my daughter who has started to do most of the snow shoveling for me.
** hot chocolate and games with Colton and Leah.
** an unexpected lunch out with Megan, the kids, and one of Tim's sisters.
** Tim's announcement that he's already made dinner reservations for Valentine's Day! Him planning ahead for anything is HUGE.
** committee meetings at my church are blissfully productive and short. If you've ever served on a church committee you probably understand just how long and unproductive they can be.
** all the plans for the marriage conference on Feb. 12 have been finalized, jobs are assigned, and it's all falling into place. It's going to be a wonderful event.
** Tim and I have found another show on Netflix that we can agree on. There are 8 seasons and we watch an episode or two each evening so we have a while to go. It's Blacklist by the way. Rather violent, but pretty good. It's along the lines of Criminal Minds.
** God keeps on teaching me what I need to learn...and has an infinite amount of patience with me.
** so many who've been ill recently and recovered.
** we continue to remain (relatively) healthy.
** the privileges that come with being born in the United States.
** all of you, of course!
