Thankful Thursday - Editon 6

Thursday, already?  This week is zooming past with lightening speed.

Let's see what I've been thankful for this week...

1.  Dan is home!  You knew that was going to be at the top of my list.  It's always better when he's home.

2. Quiet time in DD.  Sunday morning after I dropped Sarah off to work at our church's pancake breakfast, I headed to Dunkin' Donuts for a coffee and some time with my Beth Moore devotional.  It was perfectly lovely in there.  I got to enjoy my coffee (DD is my favorite coffee), got caught up on my devotional, AND they were playing my Jesus music.

3. Birds chirping.  I was working in the office the other morning and it was a little sunny and I actually heard birds chirping.  I told Dan about it when he called that day and he wasn't as excited.  I told him I couldn't remember the last time I had heard birds chirping and that can only mean one thing - spring is coming!

4. Pauses that save us.  When Peter was driving to restaurant the other night, we got stuck behind a slow car and ended up at a stop light.  If this guy had been paying attention, we could have both made it through the light.  Peter was grousing about having to wait and I told him that sometimes being made to wait  saves us from other things - like an accident or other event that might effect us if we hadn't been made to wait.  He was not impressed with my story and dismissed it with a wave of his hand and a "whatever" and an eye roll.  But on Monday, Sarah asked I could take her into school a little later than usual (she would still be on time, she just doesn't like to get there before her friends do). I really wanted to get to Aldi and get going on my shopping but I let her sit in the car with after Peter's carpool left and then I went in with her and got some gift cards from the Scrip program.  It was about a 10 minute delay.  When I got to the intersection where the Aldi is located, there was a 3 car accident blocking everything and it looks like it had just happened.  So, maybe pausing with Sarah saved me from being involved in that accident??

5. These tulips.  These are the Costco tulips I got last week and they were so beautiful when they opened up!

And that's it for this past week.  It's a short list this week so I'm going to try to look harder this week.

What are you thankful for today?

I am thankful you are blogging everyday.
It is like having a phone conservation with a good friend in the morning with my coffee.
Love your thankfuls today.
Have a cozy afternoon.
Running errands in the cold here!

It's funny you mentioned the birds chirping - as I was getting out of the car this evening, I heard them and asked, "What? Do you think it's spring already?"

Isn't it a blessing to be thankful your hubby is home? Some people don't feel that way.
I can't wait to hear birds chirping..., or to see tulips!
We never know what little things happen in our life that protect us. Glad you weren't in the accident.
