It's been a long time since I participated in Thankful Thursday at Grace Alone. But with the multitude of changes that have taken place in our lives the past three years, I'm encouraging the girls to look for the gratefulness instead of the grumbling. Maybe I should practice what I preach!
This week I'm thankful that we live in a place that did not have the extreme weather in many parts of our circle of the world. We had some wind, but none of the gales that tormented much of this country. The very small part of our fence that came down has already been put back up by the landlord! We had normal temperatures for this time of year. None of the frigidness our US family has faced. Although living near a river, there was never any thought of flooding.
We have been warm, secure and without weather stress.
And I'm grateful.
