Happy Thursday All, Have you found that as you stop and give thanks for the little things in your life, you've become more aware of just how blessed you are? I certainly hope so because this has been the case with me. So often the negatives can be overwhelming, especially in today's world, and it is easy to forget just how much we really have. Today I am thankful for my two blogging buddies that I am good friends with; hubby and I joined both couples for dinner last Friday evening. This was the first time I had met the hubby's and they had met mine. We had such a nice time together and I look forward to spending more time together as couples. I am thankful for the love of family and friends and time spent together. Last weekend we got to spend time with both daughters and their families. The richness that family adds to life! I am thankful that our dearest friends in Ca., aka next door neighbors, called and we got to catch up on life. I am thankful for a trip we've planned for next summer with them to Sisters, Oregon. I am thankful for a job well done-the house is finished and we just love it. I am thankful for the fun day we spent yesterday in Boulder which passed too quickly but still was fun. We had a wonderful lunch at The Cheesecake Factory before heading home. We also had dinner with some dear friends here which was a wonderful treat! Her parents are visiting from Kansas and we loved meeting them. Today is another beautiful day so I am thankful for the availability to get out and about. I am thankful for two new books I'm reading: THE MIRACULOUS JOURNEY OF EDWARD TULANE by Kate DiCamillo THE HEAVENLY MAN by Brother Yun with Paul Hattaway- the remarkable true story of Chinese Brother Yun.
I am thankful for Life, for living in a time as this, for each and every day. What are you thankful for today? For more thankful posts, please visit Laurie at http://womentakingastand.blogspot.com/
