13 things I am thankful for

1. My husband and children even if we don't always get along. LOL
2. My family and friends and church.
3. The fact that my sister's test results came back good.
4. That God sent his Son to die for us so that we could have everlasting life.
5. That even when I mess up God still loves me.
6. That there are sunny days when I can take the kids outside and let them play.
7. That I have people in my life who care enough to reach out when I need it.
8. That I have shelter, clothing and food.
9. For central heat and air and running water.
10. For the people who visit my blog and even leave me comments. To a new blogger it means so much.
11. Days when I can just forget about what I have to do and enjoy being with my children. It's hard to do that sometimes but I want to do it more.
12. For a job that brings in enough to help us pay the bills.
13. That I am so blessed in so many ways, even when I don't realize it.

There are so many more things I am thankful for. Just wanted to list a few. Take a look at more Thursday Thirteen. And even more here at 3 Moms Thursday Thirteen.
God bless,
Amanda

Good list! It's easy to take some of those things for granted...like running water and central heat.

If you're interested, I wrote my Thursday 13 about some of my favorite things that I've done with my husband. :)

I think your 13th one is the best...it's all inclusive that you make us realize that LIFE itself is good.

My thirteen is now posted...come join me? Happy Thursday.

Wonderful list.
We often don't realize how precious these things are until we don't have them, like central air and running water.

I am with you! It's a good thing to make thankful lists ~ it helps us keep life in perspective.

Jena said...

Shouldn't we all be more thankful. I love your list, it really makes me think.

You certainly are blessed! Isn't it amazing all of the everyday blessing that we take for granted? I for one have to completely agree with you on the central heat and air! May God continue to bless you and your family!

Wonderful 13! Thankfulness for what we have is often lost in wistfulness for what we don't.

I think we all take #9 for granted.

I've never understood how #4 works.

I highly recommend brie and mango in phyllo pastry. Mmm so good.
