I have been reading two great
blogs for a while called 3 Peanuts and First a Pearl, then a Ruby
These two ladies do some thing that has really inspired me.
Every Thursday they do a "Thankful Thursday" list. It has inspired me to do my own. I like the idea of it since I enjoy blogging. The reason I like to blog is because it is a neat way to share photos and stories with family and friends.
I am more likely to blog thank write in a journal.

I am going to call mine Thankful because I am not sure if I can commit to doing it every week although I am going to try. I love their idea, a time to reflect and be thankful!

So here goes. This week I am thankful for:

  • My husband because I have been so busy this week and he is such a big help. He came to my school to help me set up for this weeks lesson. He brought Simone to me after school today so I could take her with me to one of my teaching partners Bridal shower and then met me back at my school to pick her up so I could teach organized games to child care providers from our school district. I am so thankful for my husband.
  • That Simone is starting to feel so much better and her antibiotics are working. Her nasty caught is going away!
  • The time that Rachel and I spent together at the mall.
  • I get to go to see a lady speak tomorrow about her experiences in China and about her adoption. She is some how involved with a book called Baby in a Box. I will find out more tomorrow. Thankful that my friends Kimi and Becca are going with me.
  • My Mom is having a blat visiting my Brother, Sister In Law, Niece and Nephew in Chicago.
  • The patience to take a deep breath when I feel so over whelmed with things.
  • My friend Jeni who helped me out this week two times. You rock.
  • Veterans every where. Especially My Dad (Marine), My Grandpa Scott (Marine), My Grandpa Smith (Army), My Uncle Terry (Army), My Cousin Shanna (Army and currently in Iraq.), Our Good Friend Mike (Coast Guard in charge in Oregon), Our Good Friend Tom (Army). Thankful that all that you do and have done!
  • I am healthy.
  • I have a job to go to every day.
  • My Family.
  • My friends.
  • Living Life.

Maybe this has inspired you to make your own list??

I am hoping to get caught back up with my blogging soon. I purchased an external hard drive since my computer can no longer hold all of my photos. I just need to figure it out. These photos of Simone were taken last week.

Have a great FRIDAY everyone.

I love your list and I especially love that the idea of taking time to think *and write* what we are thankful for is speading. I'll think of you as I am watching "after the final rose" tonight! Happy Thanksgiving!
