Thankful Thursday, Take 31

Thanking God for...

  • the members of my church sponsoring ALL TEN of the children whose packets Compassion International sent to me--I even had to request one additional packet!
  • Jaala's visit on Monday afternoon
  • Steve offering to cook dinner Monday night when I got home and was exhausted from being on my feet all day (and it wasn't just throwing together something--he made a crustless bacon, tomato and cheese quiche!)
  • simple pleasures like finding the perfect ribbon to match cards I'm making
  • a friend helping me work on the cards yesterday afternoon
  • finding Bath and Body Works' Sheer Freesia lotion at Opry Mills (the store that's closer to me discontinued it and it's my favorite summer floral!)
  • ice cream cones
  • new books from favorite authors
  • getting a 10% discount off our hotel reservations for our anniversary trip/"babymoon" after finding a cheaper internet rate than the hotel's website offered
  • friendship bread
  • having to recopy my to-do list on a new paper because so many things are crossed out, it's hard to find the ones that aren't
  • a clean, fresh-smelling dog
  • ceiling fans
  • beautiful prose
  • the glorious gospel of grace

Your turn below...

Glad to hear that you are going on a babymoon! We going on a three-person-family-moon in a few weeks before the baby comes. It will be David's last time to have our complete attention on a trip before we before a four-person-family.

Oh, and What is friendship bread?
