Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday is my way of pausing each week to consider all of the things I'm grateful for.  Sometimes they're small, sometimes they're large, but I think it's always important to keep my blessings in mind.

This week I'm thankful for:

...a slower, quieter time of year.  Post holidays, I need a breather, a time to reflect on the year that's passed and time to process my plans and goals for the New Year ahead.

...after-Christmas sales.  Stocking up on next year's gift wrapping paraphernalia at 70% off is a blessing, indeed!

...sunshine.  Even though some snow would be lovely, anything is better than the dreary, damp rain we've had for weeks on end.

...a marriage that, though never perfect, is the strongest it has ever been.

Feel free to join in the comments, or link back to your own blog!  What are you thankful for this week?

  1. I would have to agree with your post.

    I'm thankful for the support we have from my parents and my in-laws. They are the most awesome people I know and have been there for us when my son is having his heart surgerys, even the one that is coming up that has been canceled twice now.
