Thankful Thursday


  • I'm Thankful for a little six year old that snuggled up next to my back this morning. Really there is nothing that feels much better than a little body (or a big body ;) of someone you love snuggled in close to your back.
  • I'm Thankful that I live close to a temple and for the peace that can be found there.
  • I'm Thankful for a husband who puts up with me.
  • I'm Thankful that I am surrounded by family who love and care about me.
  • I'm Thankful for four beautiful, good kids.
  • I'm Thankful for an older Brother who loved me enough to die for me. Not only did He die for me but He took on the sins and the sorrows of the whole world so that He could know exactly how I'm feeling. In that knowledge I can turn to Him and know that He will understand. I am beyond Thankful for that. In fact I can never be Thankful enough, but I'm sure going to try.

Nice list. Mine could be identical, except that I didn't get a back cuddle this morning. But sometimes I do.

I love a good back cuddle! Absolutely love your last one. Couldn't have said it better myself.

Great list.

I love the snuggles too, which is why I don't mind crawling in bed with my 7 yr old every night still.

The last one is perfect.

I ditto the temple one. I was there on Thursday and thinking those exact thoughts to myself--how thankful I was to live near a temple and how incredibly peacful it is in there. It's such a refuge.
