Thankful Thursday #30

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 I have a husband to walk through the different stages of parenting with.

2) I am thankful that my church just began offering a Growing Kids God's Way class for the teen years. We went to the first class on Tuesday night and it was really good stuff! My favorite phrase was, "Young children rebel against authority, but teens rebel against relationship." That is profound!

3) I am thankful that I have a pretty good relationship with my oldest daughter. She has also been making good decisions lately which has made her Dad and I proud of her.

4) I am thankful that as my oldest daughter begins to face new and uncharted territory, she feels comfortable coming to talk to me about them! What a precious thing for me to be able to share with her in these new experiences of life.

5) I am thankful that the house we've made an offer on (back in April) seems to be winding down to a final decision. We've actually had correspondence from the bank who owns this house and believe that it is a sign that the end is near.

My advice to you if you ever decide to place an offer on a house in a short sale: 1) Run away, run away fast! 2) Make the offer and then don't expect any results for at least three months - however, they will seem like the longest three months of your life!

Wonderful list today! I'm so glad you have been able to maintain a good relationship with your daughter. My daughter and I remain close and it has truly blessed my life that she considers me a trusted friend.

I would love to have a class like you mentioned in #2! Our 14 year old son is basically good, but boy he can have an attitude!

I pray that the waiting on the house is over soon and in your favor!

I've heard of the class for the younger children, but didn't know they had a teaching for teenagers. Good stuff!!!

Lovingly,
Yolanda

I have a 13 year old son. These can be the best of times and the worst of times, all in the same week. Sometimes even in the same day. I am so grateful to God for our relationship. I'm looking forward to the man God is leading him to be.
Blessings ~ Lisa
