Thankful Thursday

For the month of August, Thankful Thursday is hosted by Laurie at Women Taking a Stand.

I honestly can’t believe it is already Thursday,
This week has flown by with school now back in session.
I have much to be Thankful for this week.

I am thankful for the awesome amounts of rain we got last night.

I am thankful that my husband had two side jobs this week

I am thankful that my husband is scheduled to work this Saturday which means a little overtime.

I am thankful that the kids all got great teachers even if some of them are a little more difficult.

I am thankful that I was calm over Mekenzei switching out of both Volleyball and Basketball to just do cross country in the Fall and Track in the Spring. 

I am unbelievably thankful that we cleaned for 12 hours on Monday to get things uncluttered and organized.

I am thankful that by 6:30 am every morning I have had the house maintained, meaning laundry is folded, new load in. Dishes are done, bathroom is clean, floors are swept and I am ready to start my day. Its amazing that I can do all the maintaining in one hour because we have everything uncluttered!

I am thankful that even my husband is beginning to participate to keep our house tidy. He did some dishes last night before going to bed, even picked his clothes up off the kitchen table to put away and this morning told Jakob to sweep the floor after he tracked in mud/dirt from his shoes.
I am thankful for the 15 purple folders I found at Office Depot Tuesday night- when I saw there were so few left after we looked for 1 1/2 hours after school. I bought every last one. I also am thankful the clerk gave them all to me for 49 cents because five of them were a different style. The teacher was also grateful for our generosity. I pray the other 14 students can find theirs before Monday's class.

I am thankful to see my husband read his bible at the kitchen table this morning, while the kids ate their breakfast and he drank his coffee. Can I get an AmenWow, brings some tears to my eyes. Thank you for your prayers too, keep em’ comin.


  1. Great list of blessings, thanks for sharing.

  2. That was a good list. I need to go do some housework now. :)

  4. wow..12 hours of cleaning..I need at least half of that to make my little place super clean! I hope I can do that soon too!

    and I love seeing my husband read his bible too during warms my heart all the time :)

    God bless you and your whole family!!
