Today's Thankful Thursday post is hosted by Iris @http://www.eph2810.com/
and her focus is on the past year. Oh what a year 2010 has been, filled with joy and so much life as well as rocky times as well. So many are struggling with huge issues such as health, finances, disappointment~well the list could go on and on. We do need to stop and take note and give thanks in all things!
For me, I am thankful that hubby and I had a wonderful vacation in Hawaii in March, a fun camping trip during the summer, a trip in the fall to celebrate my brother's birthday and countless other fun activities.
Today I am thankful for the first significant snowfall we've had this year; I'm thankful for this winter being dryer than the past which has helped my beloved to enjoy being outside more. I am thankful that he is enjoying senior sports and working at our local golf course. I am thankful for each day and each breath!
I am thankful for the many friends that the Lord has blessed me with and the fellowship I enjoyed at the ladies study this fall. I am thankful for God's grace that covers us and provides for us.
I am so very thankful for my beloved hubby, the man he is and the husband & dad he is-it amazes me that I am so lucky to be his wife. I am so very thankful for my family, for our daughters & their families, for my brother and his incredible wife~you will never know how much they all mean to me.
I am thankful for the gift of art-in different areas-quilting, photography(though hubby is so much better than I), and of course writing; who would have thought this thing called blogging could inspire and draw out the depth of my feelings.
I so look forward to 2011 and all that is yet unknown to me. I am holding to the word HOPE and JOY for the coming year.
Thank you for joining me on this journey and for sharing life with me!
Thanking Him for you today.
