"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thessalonians 5:18
I really enjoy Thursdays, it's a perfect day to set aside to reflect on things you are thankful for. Sure, count your blessings... name them one by one... and do it daily. However, Thursdays are a great day to write up a thankful post! Just saying!
This week, I have a lot to be thankful for! 9 years ago I received the greatest title ever, mommmy. 364 days later I was promoted to mommy of two.
On Sunday we celebrated Faith Aubrey's 8th birthday! She came into the world almost 3 weeks early and weighed only 6 lbs! She has always been a tiny thing, but don't let her size fool ya! She's a strong one!
Monday, Mistic Renee celebrated her 9th birthday! She has taught me many things and I'd have to say, out of all my children, she's the one most like me. Good thing, and a bad thing! LOL
We spent Monday at a local indoor water park- a rare treat for us! We were the only family there- since it was a school day for everyone else.
Due to food allergies, we no longer buy donuts from the bakery. It's a fairly recent change for us, and some of the kids have missed them. Not that we ate donuts a lot, but it is something that was occasionally eaten! Thanks to The Happy Housewife's Homemade Donut Recipe my kids were able to satisfy their cravings!
I've also found out this week that my sewing skills might be stronger than I once thought! I have now converted three pairs of jeans into a jean skirt! With one of them having a nice trim!
Counting my blessings... Becoming a mother, celebrating birthdays as a family, going at our own schedule, quiet water parks, homemade donut recipes, sewing skills, willing family members to act as models.... Oh! And Mistic and Faith both received bikes for their birthdays so now everyone has a bike! We LOVE biking together!
Just to sum it up: My family!
What are you thankful for?
