Thankful Thursday 1/31

This is not a “new” idea.  Thankful Thursday has been around for years.  Back when I was regularly posting on my personal blog I often put up a Thankful Thursday post. I searched the internet looking for the originator of the idea but it is hosted on so many different blogs I couldn’t begin to guess who gets the credit for it.  My personal blog doesn’t get posted on anymore but I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude lately.  I’m going to be putting up a Thankful Thursday post regularly on this blog.  Sometimes it will be about reading or blogging and other times it will be more personal.


Thursday is almost over and this is the first chance I’ve had in over 24 hours to sit down at my computer for more than a minute or two.  

Today I’m thankful to be home.  

I have a son with some medical problems. Overall things have been going well but sometimes things can get a little rocky and I feared we weren’t going to make it through this blip without a trip to the hospital. Thankfully we are currently home and I am hoping, praying and believing that we are going to make it through this rough spot with nothing more than a little lost sleep.  I’m also grateful for a couple of dear friends who have gone out of their way to help.  The bring to my mind this quote from Spencer W. Kimball.

“God does notice us, and he watches over us. But it is usually through another person that he meets our needs.”

There is always something to be grateful for.  What are you thankful for?

I invite you to join me….  Put up your own post, leave a comment or just take a minute to think of something you are grateful for.
