Grateful Friday

I'm thankful to find the top of my desk
after such chaos in my craftroom!

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
  ~Oscar Wilde

I'm grateful for good music that speaks to my soul...especially when it fits my mood so well.

I'm grateful for my hobbies that give me a outlet for creativity.

I'm grateful for the ability to talk to our LORD whenever I choose.  Baruch HaShem!

I will be forever thankful for memories; may they stay vivid and real in my mind so I can visit them often.  They are friends that I never want to lose.

I'm grateful for my camera and the fact that I know how to use it quickly to get those shots that require precise timing.

I'm grateful to have the memorial stuff all sorted through and mostly put away.  Also, that the LORD has given me the energy to get all the laundry caught up.

I'm grateful that Alex has been successful in his special hunt this year and tagged a muley doe.  Way to go, Alex!  It's a blessing to put meat in the freezer.

I'm thankful for The Support Group!  I love you guys!
“Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.”
I'm grateful that I have a supportive husband.

I'm so thankful for the opportunity to sing with good friends.  I deeply appreciate the friendship with my dear friend Cherrie - she is a treasure and a joy.

I'm grateful for technology that makes my life so much easier.  We all complain about our computers, but I want to take this opportunity to thank the LORD for the ability to communicate so freely with friends all over the world, to store photos and create slideshows digitally, to listen to scads of music at the click of my mouse and to be able to record my thoughts to share so readily.  Just keeping an electronic calendar that I can carry with me so conveniently is a blessing.  All these things were much, much more difficult even when I was twenty years younger.  Thankfully, we didn't know it at the time...haha!

I'm grateful for a little breathing space.

What are you grateful for this week?

Reading your list makes me smile and thankful for all those things, too, my dear friend.

As for myself this week, I'm thankful for the focus and strength that only our Master can give - and has given over the last weeks.

I'm thankful for your help to get that project done, as well as the ability to do it.

And, for my friends - all of you are so precious.

This past week, I was grateful to be among people who love you so much.

Thankful, too, for such a sweet greeting and farewell.

I'm thankful for a Father who will never leave me nor forsake me. (Word verification is "pater" . . . wow . . . how appropriate.)

Loved reading this post, my friend.

(By the way, poking around in those tiny rocks was on my list. *smile*)
