Thankful Thursday

I need to do Thankful Thursdays because I know I have lots to be thankful for...but often can't remember what it is! And sometimes my memory needs a jog, so today I'm "jogging" it with the alphabet (with some assistance from Henry and Harmony :))

A--Apples; they're one of Henry's favorite foods
B--Babies, especially Baby Helena, born to our Ithaca friends this week
C--Chocolate, need I say more?
D--Dear friends who know me, pray for me, and put up with me
E--Easter (Harmony's idea)
F--Flower, Henry's first word
G--God and his many names; thanks for the study we did on that in Ithaca
I--Isabels--both of them from church--read the story of one Izzy's adventures
J--Jesus and his amazing sacrifice
K--Kitty snugglign with Harmony at night
L--Love that is patient, kind, not self seeking, and enduring
M--Miss Diane and Miss Colleen, the kids' preschool teachers
N--New clothes--thanks for helping me shop, Patrick!
O--On line deals, like my $15 MP3 player
P--Peekaboo--one of Harmony's first words and favorite games
Q--Quilt--the one I made when I was pregnant with both kids that is finally done--thanks Mom!
R--Raking leaves into big piles--coming soon!
S--Samantha and Marisa, H&H's cousins
T--Thankful Thursdays. Thanks, Iris!
U--Uniqueness. Isn't it cool that no two of us, or even snowflakes, are alike?
V--Voting--the opportunity to pick our leaders. Exercise your right!
W--Where I work
Y--Yoda and You Tube, both on Henry's favorites right now
Z--Zoo--we had a great time a couple weeks ago!

Oh, what a wonderful idea for Thankful Thursday...J - for Jesus is my favorite :)
Wow, you got an MP3 player for $15 - that is just awesome.
I have not been at the Zoo for almost 12 years - I think it is time :)

Thank you so much for sharing your thankfulness with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.

That is so "cool" if I can be so brave as to use that term!!! (I may be "old" but still use "cool" a lot!)
This was the neatest was to express thankfulness!!! And I bet you really had to dig---to get them all!

Love your list. I really like the alphabet idea. That was great.

I enjoyed your list and it is wonderful that you found such a deal on the MP3 player, although I do have to admit, J for Jesus was my favorite.

Thank you for sharing.

Kathleen Marie said...

That was the cutest thanks! Love it!

Mary said...

Great idea. Now you know that everyone is going to copy that in the next few weeks. HA! I'm sure if the alphabet were longer, you could continue with more thankfulness, right? Thanks for sharing. Blessings
