Thankful . . .

Wednesday, September 14, 2011
There's something about Spring that makes me glad to know the Creator, to be a daughter of a God so imaginative that He made a world where there are Springs.

I am feeling thankful today because the sun is shining and summer is coming.

I have a clothesline full of clean washing - the first day I've been able to hang it all out.

I'm also reflecting on how thankful I am that in less than 2 months I will be 40 years old. I am thankful that I have lived long enough to reach that age when so many don't.

I have also been reflecting on the last 40 years and how blessed my life has been so far.  A happy childood, an interesting and adventurous youth, for so many paths I could have gone down and didn't, and for finding someone who truly loves me, even when it is not easy.

I am thankful for my husand and his care of me, and love for me when I am filled with so many flaws.
I am thankful for 4 children and one waiting in Heaven.

I am thankful for my family, and for my in-law family who make me feel part of them.

I am thankful that I still have long dark hair, and that there is not too much gray in it yet.

Today I am thankful for a boy whose chickenpox spots have stopped itching, and for a sweet 2 year old, who is sometimes not sweet, but who is very loveable.
I'm thankful that I have good neighbours who are good friends.

And I am thankful for blossom on my plum tree.

Happy birthday for your birthday in less than 2 months (in case I don't get to say it at the right time!). You still look very young to me!! :) Your thankfulness is very encouraging - thank you for sharing.

The sun was out up here too yesterday - soo nice to see again.
Glad the itching has stopped been thinking of you all down there.
Life is good isn't it, even with bumps in the journey!

Love Leanne
