Thankful Thursday

Iris over @ Sting My Heart and Jessica @ Dearest Jessica are both hosting "Thankful Thursday" today! So, I thought I'd join in with a little list of my own!

I'm thankful for. . .
1. My very size of my family! (I have SO many people to be thankful for. . .wonderful immediate family, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents!)
2. My AMAZING church body! (see our story / contest / fund raiser for our sweet pastor below and in the sidebar)
3. The laughter of my kiddos
4. My Hubby! He LOVES to be @ home with the kids and I just hanging and wrestling with the kids on the bed!
5. The sweet smile on Davis and his sparkling eyes (oh, I can't wait to hold him!)
6. My Jesus! He is just so precious to me!
7. Beth Moore. . .man, can that lady teach!
8. Women who are beyond me (in both years and wisdome) and CHOOSE to pour into me. . .thank you to Lisa E, Cathy S., and Christie D.
9. My Small Group Girls who amaze me in their steps of faith and vulnerability to our "cool" group!
10. All the sweet girls, who I am honored to call "my friends". I love the way they share their journeys with me and I am able to see God at work in them!
11. Blogging (yes, my new addiction!). . .this also includes my blogging friends. Girls I am thankful to share with and rejoice with who LOVE the Lord!
12. My "job" @ the church. I am so Thankful that as a volunteer our pastor would still choose to call me staff and include me with that wonderful group of people. I love that I get to be a part of our small group ministry and the events that our church does. It truly is a JOY!
13. Provision. . ..oh, how the LORD has provided for us. We have a home, a car, food, running water, clothing for our children and medical care.
14. The ability to Stay @ home with my munchkins. They are a HOOT! I love playing with them and watching them interact with each other, especially!
15. The plans the Lord has for us. . .while I am always trying to look over his shoulder, I AM thankful that He already has laid out plans for us and they are GOOD!

The Beth Moore one made me think of something I have been meaning to tell you. Our church did her "Loving Well" series for our Women's Retreat this year. OH MY GOSH it was SO incredible! If you have not done it yet then you HAVE to! It is THE BEST!

I noticed you didn't say anything about being thankful for dumptruck. Was that a mistake? :)
