John David obsessively picking up pecans for Papa

After coming up with 25 random things about myself on FB, for some reason, I got to thinking about what things I am most thankful for this week. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other but those who know me well, know my mind is random. So, here goes my top 25 (in no particular order, although #10 is close to number 1 in my head)

1. Woo Hoo!!! We finally got to play outside this week!!

2. We had wonderful potatoe soup with cheese, bacon and onions last night, made by yours truly!

3. My children are healthy and so are jake and I!

4. I have a nice warm bed to sleep in and, I might add, with clean sheets! (does it get better than that, really?)

5. My house is clean which is fleeting, but never-the-less heavenly

6. My husband is finishing up the dinner dishes as I type

7. I wore my PJ's all day long, and so did John David.

8. Will and Jake danced around the kitchen to Zac Brown's "Chicken Fried" as I was making dinner and it was adorable.

9. John David told me that I am his best Mommy ever

10. I didn't have to clean up any poop off the floor today, nuff said. (that should really be number one on any list)

11. My fireplace is working! Yay!!!!

12. I have a fireplace!

13. I blew a fuse today with the vacuum cleaner and (this is the best part) fixed it myself

14. I read my bible tonight with no fear of persecution

15. I chatted with three dear friends today on the phone.

16. Gracie and John David started making plans to "camp out" in the sun room Fri. night. So cute! I love it when they actually get along

17. Gracie made me a Valentines Day card

18. I saw the begining of a work ethic in John David as he diligently picked up pecans for 45 min. (only 6000 more to go, lol) or maybe he is just obsessive like me.

19. Will didn't hurt himself when he fell off the top of the slide

20. I have a God who loves me is providing for me even when I don't deserve it.

21. My husband has a job

22. I have a great mom and dad

23. I have a wonderful extended family also

24. I got to start sewing something for myself today. even though it would have fit Andre the giant.........(note to self, take better measurements next time)

25. Jake and I got to watch a movie together and he even let me pick it out.

So there you have it. My list for the week.

"So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness." Col 2:6-7
