Feeling Thankful

I have been reading the devotional One Thousand Gifts by Anna Voskamp, in this devotional I am learning that a thankful heart is a happy heart and that God rewards that thankfulness. So in that same train of thought here is what I was thankful for this past week.

mikaela soccer

  • Soccer Games-Even though one was in the rain and the other in the freezing cold I am still thankful that I am able to watch my daughter, Mikaela playing a game she enjoys. Looking forward to more games this week including a Carolina Railhawks game.
  • Lunch with a dear friend-Even though we live right down the road from each other our lives are so busy that we hardly get to see each other. We made time and went out for lunch on Friday. Eggplant Parmesan from Olive Garden anyone. We have decided to meet for lunch at least once a month from now on.

surprising a friend

  • Surprising a dear friend-Being able to surprise a friend who does so much for everyone else was a huge blessing for me. She has always been there whenever I need her. So it felt good to do something for her for a change.

bipolar weather

  • The BiPolar Weather of NC-Tuesday, it was raining and cold.Wednesday, the highs were near 70’s. Thursday, we were under a winter weather advisory. The temperature dropped from the 70’s to 30’s in a matter of hours. Friday, 2 hour delay for schools due to the threat of black ice. So how is that for bipolar weather?
  • That a dear friend’s husband was released from the hospital after being in there for over 11 days. Now just praying for continuing healing and no complications.

So these are just a few things that I am thankful for this past week. What are you thankful for?
