Happy Thursday All~  Today Laurie over at Women Taking A Stand is hosting TT and it is a privilege to be among the healthy this morning.  I had thought I'd be at our daughter's today, watching her four while she mends from this awful, I mean awful, bug but thankfully her sweet hubby canceled his meetings today so he could stay home.  This means that I get to go to my  weekly bible study but I'll keep a distance from all my friends.  I'm thankful that so many dear bloggy buddies have lifted my girl and her family, as well as me, in prayer-one can never have too many prayers said for them.  I'm thankful that my girl sounded a bit better this morning and that her hubby has the availability to work from home-not that he'll get much done with the four girls hanging around him.  I'm thankful that even though it is horribly windy, so far we don't have snow although it is predicted.  I'm thankful that my dear old dog, Reggie, is walking a bit better than he was first thing this morning; he was listing to one side just like an elderly person and my first thoughts were "oh no-does he need to go in?" but now he seems to be fine.  I'm thankful that I'll be home in a few hours, just in case.
I'm so thankful that my Papa knows my frame and my weaknesses physically and that He protects me.
I'm thankful to be alive this day and for grace.  Don't forget to pop over to Laurie's and say hello.
Blessings to you dear ones.


  1. I'm visiting from the Thankful Thursday link up. Oh, don't you hate that nasty bug?! I'm glad that things are working out for your family and pet. It's so cool that even when we can't go to Church or Bible Study we have the internet! Blessings!

  2. What a wonderful post of thanks. I'm about ready to go take our dog for a walk and as I read your words about it being windy a HUGE gust hit the house. We're supposed to be going for the low 70's today. We still have piles of snow from our 22 incher....CRAZY. Blessings of His best to your day!!!

  3. I hope your daughter feels better soon.

  4. Have a great day! Hope your daughter is feeling much better very soon!!

  5. God is good! Amidst the trials, he is our refuge and strength!

  6. I enjoyed reading all that you're thankful for. Your post reminds us that no concern of ours is too small (nor too big) to be a concern of our Father's as well.

    I'm so glad to hear that your daughter is feeling better ... and that her hubby was able to work from home today so that you could go to your bible study. I'm praying that you will be able to stay well.

  7. So glad the daughters hubby can stay with her.
    The wind is not that bad here...thankfully (o:
    Pray you stay well (o:

  8. Glad things are looking brighter for your daughter and your family!

    Wonderful TT post.

    God bless!

  9. I am glad to hear your daughter is doing a little better and that her hubby loves and cares for her so...what a blessing. I have been hearing about this bug alot. Sounds quite awful. = ( Glad your dog is doing better too. Your right, always soo much to be thankful for. Have a good day! HUGS

  10. praying for your sweet girl!

    love your post today but then i just love you!

  11. I hope your daughter feels better soon. I've been a bit scarce lately with my blog reading and I'm sorry for that. I've missed keeping up with you Noreen. But life has been a bit hectic and often uncertain so time has been an issue. It's good to stop by today as we have two days off for parent/teacher conferences.

    Blessings and love,

  12. Noreen,

    What great blessings you had this Thursday and so thankful that you shared them with all of us.

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

    P.S. If you can stop by Heart2Heart I have an urgent prayer request!
