Ten on Tuesday

Crayola Lady does this thing, Ten Thankful Things on Tuesday, but I'm such a rebellious little thing I don't follow her rules. She's going through the letters of the alphabet, me I'm just random. Today is suppose to be the letter M.

1. Our family devotional time in the mornings, while snuggling with Dave and sipping my coffee, and watching the cat massage Calvin's belly to get it just right, thank you, Jay, for your words of wisdom to us every morning.

2. The whole-grain banana bread that is baking in the oven. Can't wait till it's done. 21 1/2 more minutes to go.

it was starting to rain, so we sent Dave out to collect the trashcans that were drying in the grass

he made it just in time

(that had nothing to do with my thankful post, but I just had to share the pics)

3. My shopping trip and giggles with Cathi yesterday morning. What a blessing she is in my life.

4. The financial strain that we've found ourselves in this year. It has turned my life upside down, but the blessings are abundant, and I find myself in tears often, being thankful for God's goodness to us.

5. My sweetie giving me a hard time this morning for waking him up at 5:30 with my snoring...whatever! Like a girl so petite and feminine and classy could snore?? I'm sure he finds me SO attractive that he just can't go back to sleep.

6. Homeschooling. SO thankful for the peace God gives me and reassurance that I am suppose to be doing it. SO thankful for the freedom to do it. SO thankful for the curriculum I'm able to use.

my precious mummies

7. Blogging, being able to keep up with people far away that I love, finding new friends that inspire me and make me giggle, and keeping our family up to date with the happenings of our lives since we don't live a mile away from them anymore, but 3000 miles.

8. Reading. It's a free hobby. It's relaxing. I can do it with my boys. It keeps me sane. It keeps my hands out of the Chocolate Teddy Grahams.

9. Bathtime. I've started taking baths every night. It's my little heaven. Except, of course, when 'Sweetie' comes into the bathroom and leaves me some of his 'aromatherapy'...oh yeah, that's lovely.

10. We get to take a Burmese couple to the library today to get their library cards, they are the sweetest little things. Pray that we can be witnesses to them.

Hope you are all having a great day and that you have much to be thankful for.
