Thankful Thursday!

















I have been pretty slack at keeping up this aspect of my blog - in fact I think I may have remembered to do it only once! Anyway, it's Thursday and I have so much to be thankful for, so here goes!!
-For my three gorgeous kids, each of whom is a unique blessing from God. For my eldest DD, who is beautiful, smart, funny and such a kind-hearted soul. For my DS, who is cheeky, mischievous, fun-loving and very fond of mummy-cuddles. For my sweet Alice, who grows and blossoms with every passing day.
-For the arrival of spring!! I was just outside hanging the washing on the line and noticed that it smelled like spring. Spring is my favourite season, and I am just loving this warmer weather.
-For good friends: both here and far away, those who I have met and those I haven't! It's funny how you can 'meet' people in cyberspace who become such close confidantes. I am very grateful for each and every one of my friends and all they do to enrich my life.
-For my lovely husband, who works so hard to provide for his family. He is one one life's true gentlemen, and I love him even more now than when I met him 15 years ago (admittedly, there was more lust than love back then!!!)
-For my health. For the fact that I can play with my kids, walk my dog every morning, and live life to it's fullest.

Well, that's about enough rambling for now. I must be off to enjoy this awesome spring day that God has provided for me. Blessings to you, all my friends near and far. xxxx

Great post! Certainly at a time when I needed it - it reminds me that as we head toward winter, that spring is not too far away!

I agree with Gina...Great post. And I absolutely love spring the best too...there is something special about the smell of moisture in the air mixed with scents of flowers and soil and the feel of a warm sun on your skin...hard to put to into words...but you know what I mean. I am going to have to remember this. We are heading towards winter where I live and while fall is pretty here where I live, I sboslutely love spring and the sense of hope it always brings to me.
Take care. CTG
