I’m finding Thankful Thursdays to be harder than I anticipated! It’s not that I’m not thankful for everything…just that I’m struggling to shoot new things, or the old things in a new way.

Since I’m struggling today, I’ll make a blessings list and see if I can offer some illustrations.

  1. A cozy home. We have a house that’s big enough for the 9 of us, it stays warm, and it’s full of happy sounds and smiling people.Cozy-house-2
  2. Coffee. Okay, so it’s not profound. I love good coffee. I especially love when my first cup gets to just the right temperature and I can enjoy drinking it – it’s even better when the house is quiet in that moment. (Hey Mom [and anyone else who is local], wanna go get coffee again soon?)

  3. Clear skies. I have gotten so tired of gray skies! We finally had clear skies today! I didn’t get out to take pictures until the lovely moon was rising – but the fact that we could see the moon means it was clear!Moon-2
  4. Music with my friends. I am part of the praise team at church. We lead the music each Sunday, and I love it! praise-team
  5. My husband. He is the most wonderful man I know (really! it’s true!), and I’m so thankful that he’s mine!

So there you have it. Thankful Thursday.
