Thankful Thursday





I have thought about participating this meme for a long time, but something always gets in the way. But, I'm finding that I need to be more diligent in recognizing my blessings and articulating them. So here I am!



*I am thankful for friends who partner with me in prayer, and don't judge me for what my needs are but just love me anyway.

*I am thankful for my blogging friends that check in with me when I'm not posting much; you are such an encouragement to me.

*I am thankful for my blogging friends who are so honest in their own journeys; you help me realize that we are not alone in this!

*I am thankful for my family who put up with me when I'm not anywhere near my best.

*I am thankful for a God that is able to take all the stuff in my life and use it to make me a better disciple. But mostly, I am thankful that He is my Sustainer when nothing else seems sustainable.

I'm thankful for friends who help me thru rough times even when we haven't met....

we sure do have alot to be thankful for in this world, if more people were appreciative and less condemning and complaining it would be a much better world for all.

Oh - I am so thrilled that you took the time to participate this week :) Since I only blog on Thursdays anymore I lost touch :(...

You are right - it is nice to have friends that pray with/for us without judgment.
I too am thankful for my beloved putting up with me over the past 25 years :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week - hope to see you again :)

Be blessed today and always...
