Thankful Thursday #6

This has been a hard week. I have a feeling this whole month will be hard. However, in the hard times I try to find things to be thankful for.

1. 4th of July spent with my family. We cooked Mexican Food and spent the afternoon on my brothers boat swimming and fishing.

2. My husband. He is so incredibly supportive. He is helping me start the non-profit and I think he may be as excited as I am.

3. The prospect of home improvement projects this summer. I love good makeovers. Painting and redirecting will be fun and provide a good distraction.

4. Spending 5 days in Dallas with our family and friends.

5. Babies who are born crying and healthy. I no longer take it for granted and thank God when my friends have healthy babies.


  1. Love your list!! I espicially like #3. I did so many home improvements after Caroline. It kept my hands and head busy and I was actually able to process my grief better I think. Sometime I would just cry and cry as I painted and other times I would just have quiet reflection time. Both were so helpful. Lots of love to you today!


  2. Amen...our house feels like one big GIANT home improvement project. But yes, it does keep us busy. Let's go on a vacation to get away! :)

  3. Did I just hear you utter the phrase "painting will be fun"? =) Want to come over here?! I have a living room and dining room that have your name all over it! I love lots of things, but painting is not one of them.

  4. So glad you can be thankful through the pain. uuugg I wish I had such a good outlook on home repair. csn't wait to hear more about the non profit :)
