It’s been a rough week. One of those weeks where you wonder, “Are there things to be thankful for this week?”
But I’m sure there are–there must be! So I shall sally forth, or soldier-on, or forge-ahead, or whatever idiom you might come up with.
Today I am thankful for:
>The flexibility that comes with our homeschool. I cannot tell you how consistently grateful I am for the ability to work school around life.
>A great run of Peter Pan shows. And I’m so sorry I have no pictures. Bad theater mom! But, the show was so good, and I was so very proud of my Indian dancer.
>The clean bill of health my mom received. She had a series of routine checks because of insurance stuff, and there were no major concerns.
>The patient wisdom of my counselor husband. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ve been especially grateful for it this week.
>The fact that our septic system waited until after Ron got home before it backed up. ‘Nuff said.
>After missing almost an entire week of HelloMornings, I now completely realize how much I need that time in the morning. It’s a proven, irrefutable fact.
>The cold that attacked my youngest earlier in the week did not stick around. Fortunately, it was not a really bad one either.
>(Hopefully) Blog readers who stick around even when I only post once a week. With everything else going on, I just could not even summon the energy.
>Letting my students talk me into spending part of our school day at Panera Bread. It was a nice change of scenery.
>Learning that takes place, in my own heart, through rough weeks. I don’t know that I could honestly say I’m THANKFUL for weeks like this, but I do know that God can use them to show me things about myself and teach me to trust.
I hope you can find things, large and small, to be thankful for today. AND, if you have a thankfulness post you want to share, please link it up!
