Thankful Thursday, Take 52

A year of Thankful Thursdays! This week I'm thanking God for...
  • the awesome routine Elijah has fallen into this week--holding my breath that it will last :)
  • planning meals well so I could come in way under budget at the grocery store
  • monster cookies
  • a surprise package in the mail
  • box fans
  • laughter
  • instant messaging
  • being back at small group on Sunday night
  • an afternoon spent with a friend
  • adorable two-year-olds with great manners
  • Elijah making eye contact more, responding when I talk to him and even seeming to laugh
  • the versatility of Stove Top stuffing
  • my wedding ring
  • hair ties
  • the internet
  • paper and pens
  • sending His Son to absorb the wrath I deserve
  • loving me when I am unlovable
  • keeping His promises

Yes, planning meals so that I stay within/under budget has been really hard for me. I LOVE trying new recipes (i.e. new ingredients) so I've had to tone down a bit. It is an awesome feeling of accomplishment to come in on budget though! The things I get excited about these days . . . :)
