Rejoice always. Pray continually. Give Thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Our thanks to Blogbaby for creating this blog carnival that celebrates Tuesday Fiona Whitt's life - by choosing to be thankful in all circumstances.
Now, what I'm thankful for this week:
1. my husband - I know I say this every week, but I really mean it. He's such a great husband and father. He takes such good care of his family. Case in point, yesterday I came down with the flu. He left work for an hour to get the kids into bed while I was laying on the couch, willing myself to not get sick. Then he was back to work for a full shift. This morning he got the boys up and took Jayce to my in-laws so that I'd only have to deal with one kid today while I was trying to recover.
2. job security - Yeah, I know. It's unheard of in this day and age. However, as the economy continues to tank, people get more and more desperate and start breaking the law more and more. That means job security for someone who works for the sheriff's department.
3. amazing family - My in-laws are great people. Two times this past week they have watched the boys for us at the last minute. Friday night, Jeremy and I actually got a "date night" and today they gladly took on Jayce so I could recover from being sick. I love having family nearby who are madly in love with my kids and willing to hang out with them. Thanks Mom and Dad Meyers.
Now, it's your turn. What are you thankful for today?
