Thankful Thursday

I decided to participate in Thankful Thursday on this gorgeous day! Unfortunately, the computer and I are not seeing eye to eye, and I am not able to post the cute little button onto this blog post! Sorry. I am thankful that y'all are ok with this and will overlook it!! You are great bloggyland friends!

Here are 5 things that I am thankful for today!

1) That even though Child number #2 is sick with a virus, he is feeling better, and it is not the flu!

2) For a wonderful husband who encourages me to follow my heart's desire and still keeps me grounded in Truth and what will work for our family.

3) For Wendy Blight, who encouraged me to be obedient after I heard a whisper from God to talk to a friend who is really struggling with her marriage. This was way out of my comfort zone!

4) For the ability to run even though I am in the early stages of plantar fascitis(spelling??)---I can't wear my cute shoes right now! But, I CAN run, and I give Him thanks!

5) That my precious 81 year old Mama is following up with an appointment with a surgeon this morning after noticing that a knot in her breast had changed its shape.

So, what are some things that you are thankful for today? If you want to join me over at Truth 4 the Journey, that would be great!

Sweet Blessings!

Praise the Lord!

I hope your mom will be fine!

I'm glad you can run. I know that it is your passion. More even than cute shoes. As for me, I'll go with the shoes. LOL!

I can honestly say that today...right now...I am thankful for you!! Yesterday in the midst of so much to do...women and clothes strewn throughout my house...I looked over my girlfriend's shoulder to the incredible picture of the cross you gave me and PEACE washed over me from the top of my head to the tips of my toes.

I LOVE that precious,thoughtful gift you gave me. I see it everyday and think of you...but yesterday it was an extra special much needed blessing in my life.

So today, sweet friend, I am especially thankful for you.

It's been a very long day, and I'm ready to call it quits. How glad I am for a night to follow a busy day, even when I don't get much sleep. Just being quiet brings me great joy.

I hate to hear about your planter, whatever, whatever. My mother has that. I'll spare you the details.

It is not Thursday but I am thankful for a great trip to Maine, that we had a safe trip, and I able to rise this morning and praise the Lord. As for your Plantar Fa...............(I gave up trying to spell) Look on line for excersices to help with it. I have suffered with it for about 3 years now, and mine is gradually getting better, and I have started running again some. I got a elastic arch support @ wal-mart, and that has helped when I am on my feet for long periods of time. I can tell a big difference when I walk/run and wear it. Hope you have a great week.

It's Monday now but I'm just reading this. Thankful that I was able to keep my grandbabies for 6 days last week while their parents went out of country because of a relative's death. Thankful that today seems like it is going to be a "stay-at-hom-catch-up-with-housework" day. Thankful for your wonderful encouraging blog posts!

The exercises for PF have helped my feet a lot. Of course, I am not a runner though!

God bless! Mississippi
