Thankful Thursday:Job

Sorry I'm late in posting this...this week has been crazy busy.

Anyway, today I am thankful for my husband getting a job. After quite a bit of time, he is now gainfully employed! I am so happy for him, for us, for our family, for our future.

In this day, jobs are so precious and I am so thankful someone realized his potential and his value and hired him.

Thankful Thursday:Friendship

" One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin,
but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."
~Proverbs 18:24

Friends and friendship.

My morning started out a little rough. And I got a little upset. And then I prayed. And then I called a good friend of mine. Sometimes you just need to talk to someone to make sure you're not crazy and blowing things out of proportion. It's so wonderful to have a friend who is honest with you and will tell you how it is...even if you might not like it. I value an honest friend more than one who sugar coats everything.

I needed honesty and so I called my friend. She was honest. And she gave me some very valuable advice. Some of it was, I admit, hard to hear, but I knew she was right.

You see, a good friend knows you. And if she is a woman of God she loves with Christ's love. She imparts her God-given wisdom with love. She knows when to speak and when to just be there with you. She sticks closer than a sister.

I am very fortunate to have a friend like this. And after I've spent time with her, I leave feeling blessed. I am so blessed to count her my friend.

But it doesn't just stop there. To have a friend, you must friendly in return. And so I hope I am a good friend to her too. Because friendship takes two, not just one always doing the giving and the other always doing the receiving. It's an equal process of give and take.

I hope she knows how much I love and appreciate her, her friendship is such a gift. I am beyond blessed to call her friend and I am so very thankful to call her my friend.

Thankful Thursday: Arms

I've decided to start a new weekly segment for the month of November. It's called "Thankful Thursday". Now, I know we are all very thankful for our families, our jobs, our homes, etc. But what about the little miracles that happen everyday. Are you thankful for those.

This week I'm thankful for arms.

Why am I thankful for arms? Well, I was watching "Greys Anatomy" last week and there was a patient who had lost his arms in a logging accident and he was getting an arm transplant. He had waited 4 years for this.

Well, that episode got me thinking....thinking of all the things I use my arms for everyday. And I realized how fortunate I was to have arms and to have use of them.

Here are some of the reasons I am thankful for arms. I am thankful for arms because....
I can hug my loved ones.
I can hold and comfort Einstein when he is hurt or upset.
I can work.
I can sew.
I can make fun crafts with Einstein.
I can drive.
I cook and bake.
I can feed myself.
I can clean my house.
I can dress myself.
I can water my plants.
I can do pilates
I can go bike riding with Einstein.

And the list can go on and on.

How are you thankful for your arms?

Catching up

I've been a busy little bee as of late.

Saturday, I enjoyed a wonderful game of football. It was Einstein's first game back since he had been sick for more than 2 weeks. I didn't realize how much I missed the weekly Saturday football game. I really enjoy them. Each week is such a good game. And for the first time, Einstein played rather fierce. I was quite impressed. After the game, Einstein spent the night with my aunt and the husband and I had a wonderful relaxing evening at home. Sometimes I forget how nice it is to just sit and home and relax.

Sunday was of course, Halloween. Einstein dressed up as President Ronald Reagan. And unfortunately I have not downloaded the pics from my camera, will do so soon. My sister took Einstein to Hallelujah Night at our church. It was my first time not going and I was a bit sad, but I was not feeling well and I had to finish some homework. Einstein came home happy and tired, so all in all, everyone had a wonderful day.

Good news, on the school front. I just finished my first class at SNHU and guess what??? I got a B+! I am so beyond excited, because the professor's grading was a little off, but all in all everything worked out. The class I am taking now, I'm totally in love with being that I'm very patriotic and all. I am now taking American Politics and I couldn't be taking it at a better time.

I now I've been missing for a few days and I promise to get better. I would have written something up Monday night, but a dear friend came over and sometimes it's more important to have some good ol' fashioned girl time. And believe me, I really needed it. After she left, I realized how wonderful and blessed I am to have such a good woman in my life as a friend and sister in Christ. Do you have anyone like that? Isn't it wonderful!?

Well, anyways, I think I've caught you up on everything. Happy Wednesday! Hope the rest of the week just flows by smoothly.
