Thirteen Things I am Thankful For

ttransom.gif

It seems that Thursday Thirteen is coming to an end. There’s a possibility of it coming back or of some people still continuing to do it, but for the most part this is the last one. I actually planned on doing a first ever for me Thankful Thursday theme today, but in light of this news I thought I would combine the two and do a Thankful Thursday Thirteen. (There I go breaking the rules again.) 😉

Since I just recently posted 3 things I am thankful for and since that included God, my family, and my church…I’ll just pick up where that list left off.

1.) I am thankful for my little bible. It’s the perfect size to carry around with me everywhere I go and the cover is beautiful.

2.) I am thankful for a so-far flu-less flu season. (Which is compliments of God’s protection only- no flu shots for us this year.)

3.) I am thankful for shelter over my head and good landlords, forgiving landlords.

4.) I am thankful for warmer weather.

5.) I am thankful for the small town that I live in and the blessings that come from living in a small town.

6.) I am thankful for Princess who has taught me to be girly.

7.) I am thankful for Drama Queen who has taught me how important it is to learn to control my anger (and teach them in turn to control theirs.)

8.) I am thankful for Little Boy, the boy I didn’t even know I wanted, who is teaching me to enjoy ‘mess’ … and then clean it up.

9.) I am thankful for Big Daddy who goes off to work everyday to provide for us.

10.) I am thankful for my accountability partner, who is a huge blessing, and whom God is using to teach me many things.

11.) I am thankful for conveniences like hot water, air conditioning, and a car – things I often take for granted.

12.) I am thankful for luxuries like tv, phone and internet!

13.) I am thankful for friends I can call when I need to.

I am thankful that I could easily keep going, and I am thankful to God for all these blessings and more. 🙂 What are you thankful for? Here’s what Iris at Sting My Heart is thankful for. And here’s a few Thursday Thirteeners as well: alisonwonderland, This Mom’s Journey, Suspension of Disbelief, An Ordinary Mom, and Scribbit.

Have a blessed day!

great list! it’s good for me to be reminded to be thankful for all the blessings in my life. god certainly is good! i love how you termed some things “conveniences” and some “luxuries” – it’s easy to take those kinds of blessings for granted. tonight i’m most thankful for a loving family to come home to after a very hard day!

thanks for the link and for stopping by! happy thursday!

I did a Thankful for T13, too! Thank you for mentioning me on your post!!! It is so amazing when you actually sit and think of all the things you are thankful for and how it changes your outlook. I’ve got to make this part of my everyday life and a weekly post at my blog. And, I’m thankful for you! 🙂 Have a great day!

What a wonderful list of THANKS! I don’t know what I would do without my Bible or bible.com or biblegateway.com… things that do spoil but are so very handy.

Have a fabulous week!

Thanks for doing a thankful list and helping to remind me how much we have to be be thankful for. We are so blessed to have all that we do!

I, too, am especially thankful for my children and all that they teach me about patience, forgiving, being more flexible and how to enjoy life … and then clean up :)!

Happy TT!

Great list! I didn’t do a T13 today…I seemed to have misplaced my motivation—-I can’t find it anywhere.

Yes, it is true. We take many things for granted, like food, running water etc. I am glad that you shared your thankful list with us today…

I don’t have a small Bible, but I carry my Bible with me to work every day AND read it 🙂

Blessings on your evening and always.
