Counting Blessings

Thankful Thursday

One of the things I loved about blogging early on, was connecting with others in the blogosphere.  Not “strangers” mind you, but like-minded people, to learn from and share with.  My favorite place to do this was over at Grace Alone for Thankful Thursdays.  I thought I would carry on that tradition here at Sweet Tea Diaries

Today I am thankful for….

  • A great start to the school year – All three kids seem to be having a great week, with good teachers and friends. (Yep, even Jake!)
  • Awesome friends – I love that I have “sisters” that I can turn to.  Some of these are by blood, some in spirit.  All are precious!!
  • A fresh start – It feel so good to be blogging again.  Though saying goodbye to Truly Captivating was hard, I think it was just what I needed to rekindle the spark.  Sometimes we have to let go of good things to grasp hold of something better.
  • Being able to re-activate my gym membership – Yep!  The Zumba Madness will be returning to a Twitter feed near you!! (Well, not right away… I will probably start out on treadmill/eliptical and Yoga. Gotta ease back into this.  I don’t want to be hauled out on a stretcher!)
  • My Man – No matter what. He’s always there for me. I happened to “like” a certain book on Facebook the other day, and lo and behold, it gets to delivered to my door two days later!  I am a lucky girl!!
  • My Kiddos – It can be trying sometimes (anybody out there got a 13 year old daughter?? holla!!!!) but the blessings far outweigh the trials.  Precious. Precious. Precious!!
  • Getting to able to be part of THIS STUDY at My Church. Love getting to know ladies over coffee and a Good Word. Can’t wait to start on September 10!

A great way to cure the doldrums is to count your blessings.  Thank you, Iris and Laurie for leading us each week.  I feel better already!! :-)
