Thankful Thursday, Take 99

It's sort of crazy to think I have done this ninety-nine times. But it gets more positive feedback than pretty much anything else about my blog...and I always need to cultivate the attitude of gratitude...and so each week, I list my thanks. And try to make it a habit in between Thursdays, too.

Thanking God this week for...
  • Krazy Glue
  • Werther's Caramel Coffee hard candy
  • ibuprofen
  • NyQuil
  • honey-lemon cough drops
  • not having to wait in line at the grocery checkout yesterday, despite choosing the worst day of the month to go
  • new books I got for Christmas (this, this and this)
  • some new motivation to work out and start eating better
  • blank journals I got for free with a Christmas order
  • garlic
  • progress on our upstairs renovations
  • Elijah's love for reading
  • fresh starts
  • grace that covers my countless sins
  • God's incredible mercy

I'd be interested to read a review of "Because He Loves Me". I've never read that author but am contemplating reading that book.

will do, Danielle. I haven't even finished the first chapter yet, but based on that and the introduction, it seems like EXACTLY what I need right now.

Beside Still Waters ministered to me more than any other piece of literature outside of scripture after having William. I highly recommend it.
