Thankful Thursday

Lacey, a fellow bandit and blogger who I've been fortunate enough to meet in person, does a Grateful Friday post that recurs most every week. I have always thought that this was such a great idea (one of her many great ideas!). I thought I would start my own Thankful Thursday (I hope Lacey follows the line of thought that repetition is the sincerest form of flattery?!).

I may not contribute to my Thankful Thursday every week, but I would like to do so as much as possible since recounting those things for which I am grateful always helps remind me how much God has blessed me. So I guess there's nothing left to mention other than to share my first week of things for which I am thankful.

1. My wonderful family
2. My supportive online friends
3. My health
4. My abilities
5. Lacey for reminding me that we should remember to be thankful even when life throws us some major challenges (for those who don't know, Lacey is a cancer survivor and military spouse in addition to a bandster--she has definitely faced her share of obstacles but does so with a grateful heart).

  1. I love Lacey! I've known her for years from a Yahoo group we both belonged to. I do a thing on Facebook called "TILT" or "Things I Love Thursday" - very similar. I should start posting that on my blog.

  2. Awww! Some days are easier than others, but thank you! I really miss knowing I was only a short jaunt away from you!

    Thank you too Steph! Life has been a journey, hasn't it :)
