Thankful Thursday #28

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Welcome to Thankful Thursday! If you'd like to participate, just copy the T.T. button on my sidebar and paste it into your post. Next write down five things you are thankful for this week. Finally, come back here and link up with Mr. Linky. It's that easy!

Here's my list for this week:

1) I am thankful that my husband is the most handsome man I know. He cares about himself enough to keep fit by going to the gym and eating healthy. I think he has become more attractive with age! I am blessed to be his wife!

2) I am thankful that my daughter, Ashley, is graduating from kindergarten this morning. She has had such a fun year and is really looking forward to being a first grader. She doesn't want to break for summer!

3) I am thankful that today is the last day of school. I need the summer break. My kids need the summer break (except for Ashley)

4) I am thankful that when my three year old daughter, Tiffany, decided to stuff tissues into the top of the lamp that was turned on and sitting on her dresser, it didn't actually catch on fire - just smoldered until we all came running to her room looking for the fire! God is good.

5) I am thankful that the month of May is coming to an end. I'm ready for a new month because this one seemed to be a bit hectic and just flew by too fast.

#4 is scary. I hope you had a LONG talk with her about fire safety. My Gigi did the same thing when she was 4. Only it was a pair of synthetic fur ear muffs on top of the lamp.

My thankful thursday is in my post today, but I included it with my writers workshop. It is question # 5 I'm Happy because:)

Wow that #4 is scary. We don't get out for summer vacation til next week, but I am so excited.

Leslie said...

Wow, I think your #4 would have been my #1! (I know...these are in random order though!) Actually, it probably would have been 1 thru 5!

You're kids get out of school early. I'm done tomorrow because it's preschool. My boys aren't done until 6/18. My sister is a teacher in NY and they're not done until the week after that! I don't think I could last that long! I'm ready for summer!

What a blessing when we love and realize the depth and value of our husbands.


Greg C said...

That was a close call. I too will be glad when school is out for many reasons. Big sigh here.

Praising God with you that there was no fire, only smoke. Thank You God for your protection and your provision in their lives.

Good grief, Sonya, a smoldering lamp is scary news. Thank GOD it was caught in time.

And I'm thankful for summer break, too. Especially since we home school. Ahhh!

Thanks for sharing all your weekly blessings with us this week. I am thankful that school is just about out in two more weeks, my nephew will return home for the summer, my daughter will return from her summer in Rhode Island in the same two weeks, and hubby is working locally from home. Nights, but still worth having him home!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Hi Sonya!

Happy to join! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Just wanted to answer your question:

"Shredding" comes from tv's 'The Biggest Loser' trainer Jillian Micheals. She has a workout DVD called the '30-Day Shred' - It's a challenge, but every day you get stronger. I feel great!
