Thankful Thursday

I had some good time reflecting on our vacation and felt convicted to write more thankfulness posts.  Sometimes I get too caught up in the bustle and my lack of progress discourages me.  I thought an intentional effort here on the blog would be effective and  thought Thursdays would be a good, alliterative day.  I am finally managing on my third Thursday back in town.

Here we go.  I'm thankful for:

  • my husband's job and the flexibility he is allowed
  • my husband's job, his salary, and bonus each year
  • my husband's willingness to pick up the kids every Monday noon at one of our homeschool programs and work from home that day.
  • faithful friends who speak truth
  • my kiddo's occupational therapist and her sharing a cursive writing curriculum with us
  • resources for private speech therapy to supplement the public speech therapy we get for a kiddo's severe speech delay
  • hand-me-downs for my daughters
  • hand-me-downs for my son
  • friends who wanted to give me a baby shower
  • friends who still wanted to come to a baby shower for a 5th kid!
  • 2 planned Grandparent visits coming up
  • a fancy dress-up date night this weekend
  • a great piano teacher who is willing to work with my Sensory kiddo
  • friends who share plums, apples, and grapes with me - for free (!) 
  • progress on the nursery
  • school days/routine getting better
  • an American Heritage Girls troop nearby - Hooray! - with a group of girls and women who seem really down to earth and nice.
  • Big News today that DH gets 12 paid weeks off with the new baby instead of the anticipated 4 weeks!  
I know there are more, but this is all I can recall today.  So thankful for God's provision and how He blesses our family!

Love, Katie
