Thankful Thursday



I am Thankful that I am finally "over" my pity party. Whether I like it or not, it's a new cycle, and a new hope.

I am Thankful that I am almost finished Christmas shopping--only 3 present left to buy. I am Thankful that I actually started early this year and don't feel so stressed out about shopping for gifts and getting them wrapped.

I am Thankful for over-the-counter meds that work! I am Thankful that I am finally getting over this horrible cold and can finally breath through my nose again.

I am Thankful that K was able to take a few days off this week and go hunting. I am Thankful that God continues to keep him safe while he is hunting. I am Thankful that our freezer is full of meat for the next year. I am Thankful that I had enough courage to "try" deer meat a few years ago, and that I really do like it when it's cooked right.

I am Thankful for friends that check in on me and worry about me. I am Thankful that I feel cared for and prayed over.

I am Thankful for today--it's payday! I am Thankful that I have reliable employment.

I am Thankful that K has decided to also go back to school. He will be beginning his Master's degree this spring and I will be attending school next fall working towards a 2nd bachelor's degree.

Have a blessed day, and find something to be Thankful for.

You said you are in the 2ww too? How far into it are you?

I am trying NOT to go nuts, it's not working!

So we'll all be going to school together then! :) We can empathize when we feel grumpy about the loads of papers and textbooks we'll have. :)

WISHING...HOPING...and PRAYING said...

i am sooooo glad you are ~back~. and especially glad that you sound good. i was worried about you!

thank you so much for the sweet comment. i absolutely adore my son...his name is cooper. i am so blessed and thankful for him. i sometimes feel guilty that i complain about my infertility, b/c i have him and there are sooooo many others without any. i don't want to be...greedy.

nevertheless, i would love to have another because i love him so much. i know that God has a plan for me, so i just trust in the fact that he already knows what the future will bring.

thanks again for your friendship. :)

I'm so happy you are back and extra happy that Thankful Thursdays are back! You know I gave thanks every day in the month of November because of you! Thanks for that Elaine!

I'm praying that your 2ww goes fast and that you have joyous news for us at the end!!

Hey! I am glad you found me and I can't wait to get to know you better too! If you would like to talk, you can send me an e mail to wewant2beparents@gmail.com :) I have to figure out a way to keep track of your page... I guess I could add it to my favorites or put it on my page somewhere.

My first time by...I LOVE the name of your blog. I thought to myself, "Hey, why didn't I think of that one!?!" Title coveting is a slippery slope of a sin. (Try saying that 10x fast!)

Congrats on your hubby starting his Master's degree. What is he getting it in?

Warmly, Joanne
