Thankful Thursday, Take 16

I missed a week, so I'll have to be extra thankful today :) Lord, thank You for...
  • Your acceptance of me that isn't dependent on my performance, but on the cross
  • an extended time with family at home
  • a puke-free car ride with Hank
  • opportunities to see old friends
  • pizza subs
  • generous Christmas gifts
  • the joy on a child's face when she opens gifts
  • Christmas feasts
  • strawberry slush made specially for me by my favorite dad
  • bonding time/shopping trip with my favorite mom
  • a brother who makes me laugh
  • in-laws I love spending time with rather than ones I can only tell horror stories about
  • naps
  • new books to read
  • bringing me back with the GEMS last night
  • spare keys
  • Your mercies that are new every morning--so I don't have to wait until January 1 to start fresh
  • removing my sins from me as far as the east is from the west
  • coming to earth as God With Us
  • promising to always be with me, not just at Christmas but every moment
  • a washer and dryer in our house
  • a brother-in-law who's an architect and can help us plan house remodeling for free
  • milk
  • words of affirmation
  • physical touch
  • a husband who shares these love languages
  • unshakeable hope
