Thankful Thursday!

It was a crazy week last seemed that I didn't have a chance to sit down last week to hardly even breathe! Well...this week has been MUCH better! :) I wanted to take time to list a few things that I am thankful for on this dreary (outside) Thursday!

* I am thankful for my mom & dad coming down to see us last weekend! They helped with the fried pie fundraiser! It was so nice to be able to spend some time with them!

* I am thankful for the ones who helped in ANY way with the fried pies...from buying to making to donating..etc.... it was an amazing day and we raised a lot of money for our 3 girls going on the E-team trips! ( I will post a separate blog about the fried pie day...maybe this weekend!) :)

* I am thankful for beautiful sunrises! Last Thursday...I woke up to the most beautiful sunrise that I had ever seen...especially since I don't like to see too many...I am NOT a morning person! ha! :) The picture says it all- I took it from our deck! We serve an amazing GOD!!! :)

* I am thankful for Ronald Mc Donald and his presentation today at our school! It was awesome! It was all on You are a Star! The whole program was about liking yourself for who you are and trying to be the best that you can be! ( side note...McDonald's is one of my least favorite places to eat!- unless they have the McRib-then I will make the sacrifice and eat there )

* I am thankful for my Bible study group! I lead a wonderful group of ladies that love the Lord and want to serve! What a blessing they all are! I love Thursday evenings for that very reason!

* I am thankful for my husband and 3 girls! They are the highlight of my life! Joe has been doing a sermon series on has really made me stop and think that I need to spend more quality time with each one of my girls....time is short and I don't want to miss anything in their lives!

* I am thankful for my pastor...which happens to be my handsome husband! ;) I love hearing what God has laid on his heart each week! You are awesome, honey! :)

*I am thankful for at least one outside recess today...before it started to pour! UGH!

There is so much more that I could list that I am thankful for....but I will leave you with these!
