I’m thankful for 16

I have to say that it’s June and it’s been raining and cold all weekend long. And the crazy thing is, I don’t mind. I actually love it. It would normally be around 100 or higher here with humidity, so why in the world would I complain about it staying cooler, ya feel me?

It made me want to nap on the couch all weekend long and eat ice cream.

I’m really missing this a lot lately. Okay, I’m really missing who’s here a lot lately.

I’m thankful for my love sending me a card in the mail just to say he loves me. He didn’t even tell me he sent it, which made it that much better. What’s even greater is, I sent him a card without telling him and we got them both on the same day.

I’m thankful for all of you and your sweet words last week. I really am amazed that I’ve been given the opportunity to get to know all of you and make such great friends. (can I call you friends??)

I’m thankful for saving $4 with coupons. I know its hardly anything but I was really excited I actually used coupons and saved money.

I’m thankful for the Lord carrying me through my up and down moments.

I’m thankful for learning a new hairstyle. I knew like, 3 different ways to do my hair and now I know 4. Yippy! I really am excited for this. I’ve never been good at doing hair.

I’m thankful for all the rain. It waters the crops and farms, not to mention my little basil plant that I planted in my neighbor’s planter. Truthfully, this is a selfish thanks, since I don’t have to go and water it for a few days now.

I actually had a dream while it was raining that the rain made my basil grow from 3 little stems to 50 little basil stems. I was very excited in my dream. I know I’ll be disappointed when I go and see it.

How was the weather for everyone else? Are you dying in the heat?? The heat we’re supposed to be having? Or wearing sweaters like me? I still work out every morning in a sweatshirt.

Psalm 100
Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before Him with joyful singing.
Know that the Lord Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving And His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.
For the Lord is good; His lovingkindness is everlasting and His faithfulness to all generations.

Pin It Now!

THE WEATHER HERE IS HORRID. And yes, I needed to type that in all caps. It is hotter than Hades and humid and there is like 0% chance of rain until maybe October.

I love this post filled with gratitude! The ability to be thankful for even the littlest of things is so important.

And the idea of you and your love exchanging cards in the mail and receiving them on the same day is just so sweet. :) Warm fuzzies!
