Thankful Thursday


Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more? - Cyndi Morgan song
GOOOOD Thursday Morning!! It's time to reflect, to look ahead, but most importantly be Thankful!

I have made it seven days! Last Thursday Jeremy left for his mission trip to Africa. He is well. I am well. Boo is well. WE MADE IT!

I am just now sleeping better. Took seven days, but I am falling asleep faster and having better rest. I still don't like it when Jeremy is gone. I moved to his side of the bed the other night...hm, maybe that's why I am sleeping better.

TWO MORE DAYS! I am thankful that in two days we leave for FLORIDA! I can't wait to see my dad, Boo's Papaw, and I can't tell who is more excited - Boo or Papaw.

I am thankful for doctors. I believe the Lord can lead you to them and I needed to hear the words I have heard the past few days. I need to make some changes...I have known that, but with blood pressure 140/100, it's more than just stress. Please pray as I gather my thoughts on which avenue to take.

I am thankful for friends, who despite the way I look or feel, they are there. I know that no matter what avenue the Lord has us down, they will be my support system. Thanks to all the people who have hosted me in their home or out to dinner with me in the past week - it has meant the world to me.

May you be blessed this week! For more Thankful Thursday, visit Iris at Sting My Heart!

In Him-

I hope your blood pressure goes down soon. My husband is going to Argentina in January for 2 1/2 weeks and I am dreading it too. I never sleep well when he is gone. But I am happy he and our daughter get to go.
Blessings on you!

Sleeping on your husband's side of the bed sounds like the right idea. Thanks for sharing and traveling mercies to Florida!

How wonderful that your husband made is safely to Africa. I am with you though. If my husband was out of town, I could never sleep well. I am glad that you are starting to adjust. I am sure you are looking forward to the days in Florida.
How neat that you are having friends that are taking care of you will your husband is on the mission.
Thank you so much for sharing your thankfulness with us this week.
Be blessed today and always.
