Thankful Thursday

I am so blessed to have so many great friends in this blogging world and outside of it as well.
This week Denise has honored me yet again with this wonderful award.
I will do a separate post when I have a few minutes to write down all the people I would like to give this award too but in the mean time. Thank you Denise for being such a great encouragement to me every single day!

  • I am so very thankful that Iris has honored me by allowing me to host Thankful Thursday here @ God is in control for the next 4 weeks while she takes an extended blogging break from Sting my Heart. I feel so blessed to be sharing the role of hosting Thankful Thursday with 2 other great ladies. Laurel & Lynn, I feel so honored to share this role with you.
  • I am so thankful that today we finalized our trip to Mexico with our good friends Vic & Darla. We will be flying away from here in the dead of winter from Jan 26-Feb 2 and going to Sunny Puerto Vallarta and swimming with the dolphins on one of those days! I am so excited I don’t even know if I will sleep tonight. I am so Thankful for Vic & Darla they are such awesome friends, we are going to have a GREAT TIME!
  • I am thankful that I God thinks enough of me to speak to me even though it challenges me to have to give some things up. My friend Deidre reminded me of how much He loves me again on Monday because I felt so stupid for taking so long to learn things. It’s been a rough couple of days but I am doing it for God’s glory and I know He will help me through. For those of you who are new to my blog I have challenged myself to give up some things and you can read about it here if you are interested in knowing more.
  • I am thankful for my daughter who ran in the provincial cross country 3000 meter race on Saturday in rain and mud and placed 81st in a group of 103 girls in her age group. Here she is running up to the finish line. I am sooo proud of her!

To join in with Thankful Thursday please take the time to stop by Iris’s place and join in or just say hi and a big thank you to her for being such a gracious host. We love you Iris!

Thanks for stopping by! I honored by your visit!

  7. My son just completed a very time consuming history report and map project (by hand, not a Word document) on Saskatchewan.
