And it's not even Thanksgiving

  • I'm thankful for the girlfriends God has blessed me with. I learn from them and laugh with them. They undoubtedly make me a better person. I love the time we spend together, even if it is chasing youngin's around the yard.
  • I'm thankful for the bag of Ore-Ida Steam and Mash potatoes that helped me get my dinner in the oven on time tonight, when I arrived home later than expected just procrastinated and got started late. Peelin' taters just wasn't happening.
  • I'm thankful for Kate telling on me when I take a bite before saying the blessing.
  • I'm thankful for different genres of music. My 'favorite song of all time' changes with my mood. I guess I'm somewhat of a flake when it comes to music. From Dr. Dre to Carrie Underwood and Sammy Kershaw, Casting Crowns and Aaron Shust to CCR (Cross Canadian Ragweed) and Pat Green, OAR (Of a Revolution) to Dashboard Confessional, and Smokey Robinson to Chicago... I love it all!
  • I'm thankful that none of you can see exactly how high my laundry pile really is.
  • I'm thankful for having reasons to be thankful.

You just made me realize how busy life has been lately I haven't been very 'thankful' lately. i need to slow down, take a deep breath, and be thankful. you, my friend, are awesome :) isn't it neat how God places things on YOUR heart to remind ME of how screwed up my priorities are?!

It's good to stop and take a moment and breathe in everything there is to be thankful for ...when sometimes it's so easy to only see what you don't have.

So nice :)

Happy Weekend!

What a sweet post! I am with you on the different genres of music! I love it all, too! I have to say, though.....I thought you were referring to someone else when you listed CCR. It was Creedence Clearwater Revival back in MY day! Uh oh...I'm dating myself here!

Have a great week!
