Thankful Thursday

Once again, I need to pause and give thanks for the many, many blessings in my life.  I am thankful that we are able to look for a new home for our youngest daughter and her family; I am thankful that our Ca. house finally sold.  We were so blessed to live in our home for 18 yrs and also to have great tenants the last six and a half years.  I am thankful for my hubby's hard work and early investments in real estate that provided such a great home, actually homes, there for us.  I am thankful for hubby's sister who ended up buying our home there and that she plans to keep the same family renting it. I am beyond thankful for our current home; I pray it will be our last home.
I am thankful that my brother and sister of my heart are arriving today for  a quick visit.  They will only be with us for two days, which is just too short, but I am thankful that they are coming. I'm thankful that we have a home large enough to give them their space, so maybe next time they'll stay longer.  I am so thankful that they have been pretty healthy; some hiccups along the way, but in general they are very active and well.  I am thankful for family time; tonight the whole gang will go to Red Robin for dinner-all 19 of us.  Tomorrow the girls have a tea and they guys will have lunch here.  Tomorrow night Rich, Sue, hubby and I will go to our favorite restaurant. 
I am thankful for the dinner invite from new neighbors; they are such a nice couple and I'm anxious to try the Korean food she is preparing for Sunday. 
I am thankful that I know my Savior, my Provider, my Shepherd and do not need to fear what lies ahead.
I hope you have a long list of things you can be thankful for today. 
Pause and enjoy life!!!
Blessings, Noreen

  3. Tonight I am thankful that June has not been as hot as it usually is, 110 has been our high so far. Which leads me to my second thing I am thankful for: our swimming pool because it Has been 110. May you be blessed! Cindy
