Thankful Thursday

Today I am going post some things that I am thankful for in my life. I realized recently that I haven’t been vocal enough lately about our blessings. I do not count Our Lord and God in these, because it only through him and from him, I have these earthly blessings.

First and foremost my husband, Richard. He has been a rock the past few years with the turmoil that has been going on in the family and extended family. He has allowed me to stay with Liz at the hospital, run back and forth to Virginia to help out Mom when dad was ill and then after his passing. Most recently he has been so wonderful in allowing me to travel to Virginia to spend time with Mom and run her around to appointments that need to be kept.

Second, is the blessing of homeschooling. Homeschooling has allowed us to separate from the strict schedule of the school system and allowed us freedom teach as we see fit and also allows us to have the flexibility to deal with life’s emergencies.

Third, my children. Through them I am learning so much, even while I am teaching them. I see them growing and getting to know each other and their new life as homeschooled children.

Finally, my friends, both in real life and online. Each community to which I belong to adds a blessing to my life. This happens either through fellowship with like minded moms of many, or growing in my faith because of discussions and pointed questions, or even learning how to get out of debt and stay that way! I thank God for each and every one of you.

What are you thankful for today?
