Thankful Thursday

It has been a little while since I have not participated in the weekly meme or gathering of friends as I like to refer to Thankful Thursday for a little while. That does not mean that I do not have anything to be thankful for because I believe everyday that we wake up in the morning we have something to be thankful for.

I am thankful for the wonderful weather that we have been lucky to receive in the middle of July it is normally so hot one actually wears the air. This year we have received the needed rain that we normally do not receive and we have not had the terrible heat that often haunts us in this part of the state. I am very thankful for the weather and also for the fact that I have not overheated in this old house that has poor ventilation and no central air. I have 3 window ac units and a couple of fans that help to keep us all cooled off. Even the ones that sleep up stairs where the heat always rises to have not complained as of yet.

I am thankful for the wonderful sales that were at the grocery store last time I went shopping. I bought 3 weeks full of groceries and believe it or not as we are 1/2 way through that 3rd week we are doing wonderfully. I will only need a few things to help me get through the last week of the month. YEAH!!!!!!! Thanksgiving is knowing that there is food to eat when the teens are hungry and that the groceries are lasting through a hard part of the year when everyone is home.

I am thankful that two of my children are ready to head off to college. Thankful that they received some financial aid, earned scholarships and that we are not going into great debt to send them to college. Yes!!!! I am so pleased that all is working out. Next year I will have the twins heading off to college as well. I am thankful that they are looking into where they will be going and preparing now.

I am thankful that I have children who desire to work for God. My daughter will be heading to school to study social work planning on using it in the mission field. My son is studying Gods word and praying that he finds the path that God wants for him. It is this son that has always felt that God wanted him to preach or teach his word. A third child has the desire to learn construction, which none of us have any idea of that field, so that he can help those hit with destruction or the needy.

  3. We also live in an older two story home and only have 3 a/c window units as well. It is nice when we have the cooler days here so we don't have to run the a/c units as much. Today the weather is really nice so we only have on the one a/c unit upstairs to keep it cooled off up there.
