It’s raining but I’m thankful

It’s raining today (hard), taxes are due (argh!) and Werner has been out of town 1 day too long (sigh).   I thought it would be good to list the things that I’m thankful for.

  • Running water (a missions team from our church, Werner included, has been going without for 3 days)
  • A warm, comfortable home
  • A car that has gas in it
  • Starbucks and the comfort of a familiar, coffee-fragranced, relaxed environment
  • Random text messages that make me smile from friends
  • Chatting on the phone with my kids and getting caught up
  • Extended family who really know you and still love you
  • People who enthusiastically lend a hand
  • Girlfriend-time scheduled on my calendar
  • Living in one of the most beautiful places in the country
  • A loving God who created me exactly as I am because He’s both intentional and creative.

Ok.  I feel better now……
