Thankful

With a little inspiration from Gretchen in Savannah, here are my thanksgivings today, this "Thankful Thursday"...

1.  I am thankful that the air is warm and sweet today.  A reminder that spring ~ new beginnings ~ are just around the corner.

2.  I am thankful that Mailee's 103.3 temperature is gone and that she is happily playing in her room as I write.

3.  I am thankful for every minute that my heart feels lighter, yet stronger.  Vulnerable, yet protected.  By me.

4.  I am thankful for each day that those I love and hold dear are kept safe, healthy and free from life's burdens.

5.  I am thankful for friends who help me see more clearly what, in fact, I should be thankful for.

Thank you.

You really do have a lot to be thankful for.  I'm glad that Mailee's fever has broken.  103.3 is enough to cook an egg on her forehead.
