Thankful Thursday

Although it's not Thursday, I'm going to do my Thankful Thursday post anyway.  It's my blog.  I get to make the rules.  So there.

I am thankful~
~for the warmer weather today.  The kids have been outside playing basketball.  We call that P.E.
~for Leftover Friday.  No cooking for me, and the fridge gets cleaned out.
~that I "re-learned" how to crochet this week.  It had been 20 years since I had crocheted.  Colton and Katie are learning with me.  Naomi is trying, but her hands just don't seem big enough to manage the hook and yarn.
~for my family.
~for the desire (if not motivation) to get some closets and rooms organized this weekend.
~that Monday is President's Day, so we have NO SCHOOL!
~that the Rebels won their basketball game last night.  Next game:  Tuesday.
~for my new mop.  I just need to use it more often :)
~for Pinterest.
~for my teenagers.  They're fun to have around.
~for my middles.  They're fun to have around.
~for my littles.  They're fun to have around.
~for Shannon.  He's fun to have around.

"The words of a man's mouth are deep waters;  the wellspring of wisdom is a flowing brook."  Proverbs 18:4

Thankful Thursday

I have so many things to be thankful for today.  Here's the short list:

I am thankful:

~that my bills are paid.
~that I have groceries in my house.
~that my family is healthy.
~that Shannon and Jackson fixed my washing machine.
~that I am done with Level 2 of the Shred.  It was a killer.  Level 3 seems easier.
~that the Shanks can be comforted by many, many prayers.  Their daughter, Brenna, went to be with Jesus today.  Please continue to pray for them.
~that all of four of our varsity basketball games are at home this week.
~that Bryce is done with middle school basketball.  His team was undefeated again this season.
~that we have had a very mild winter (so far).
~that Katie had a nice birthday.  I'm hoping to post pictures soon.
~for our dog, Checkers.  He loves me.
~for the opportunity to have our youth group over for the Super Bowl on Sunday.  It's been awhile.
~that tomorrow is Friday!
