I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday

I found a link today on my blogger friend Autumn's page - Thankful Thursday. It seemed like a good time to focus on things to be thankful for.
I am thankful for Skype, and the fact that I got to talk to my husband for several hours yesterday via the internet.

Afghanistan may be a long way away, but it feels much closer when I can see him on the computer screen, and hear him over my speakers.

I am thankful for Freon, or whatever the stuff is called that you put in your truck and suddenly that cab is filled with a blissful cold breeze, rather then the sweltering humid oppression that you are supposed to try to breath here in Georgia. I am also thankful that the truck only needed Freon, and not a new compressor.

I am thankful for coupons, and special deals, and the "rush" I get from buying food.

(like .99 frosted mini wheats!)
I could need caffeine, or expensive clothes, or illegal drugs to get that rush. I just need a Sunday paper and a grocery store. How cool is that?

I am thankful for my boys, and strangely enough, for their messes. They keep me busy, and I need to be busy so I don't have time to think negative thoughts.

I am SO very thankful for my amazing family. I have read several facebook status' lately from military wives with deployed husbands who are simply miserable - truly and honestly, I have never been miserable. I miss him dreadfully, and stress more then I should about his safety, but my family makes sure that I never have a chance to be miserable. AND, they love my Andy just because he is who is he.
That is something to be thankful for.

Thanks for joining me. Your list made me smile, more than once. Like the $0.99 Frosted Mini Wheats. How cool is that?!? God bless.

BEAUTIFUL post! Our kids' devotion this morning was all about being thankful "in all things" and it seems to be a theme for the day, and so timely!
