30 Days of Thanksgiving: Days 7-9


30 Days of Thanksgiving

Day 7-9: The last few days the weather has brought devastation to many in our nation so I can't help but be thankful for the beautiful weather than we have experienced.  It has actually felt and started to look like Fall! We have only felt the breezes of the storm that raged north of us.  Living close to the coast teaches you to respect these storms and they are always a concern, so you learn to be thankful for when they pass you by while also anguishing over the lives they wreak havoc upon.

I am thankful that my youngest son has now been able to say good bye to the crutches he has been hobbling around on as of late (he fell from about 7-8 feet out of his tree house....I am overwhelmingly thankful that other than bruises and a bad ankle sprain he was OK!)  I am also thankful that I survived yet another "Mom of boys" moment with this one without having a heart attack! 

On a lighter note, I am thankful for a couple of good eBay scores this week!  I got 2 silver platters for a steal and I can't wait to get them in the mail!  I also got a great deal on some unopened Christmas party napkins (50 cents a pack!) at a thrift shop this week that will be put to great use in the coming season!!!

Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
  Ephesians 5:20 (ESV)
 
Please join me celebrating 30 Days of Thanksgiving
