Thankful Thursday

I don't have a lot of time to blog today, so I'm just going to get right to my list!

I am thankful that we've been able to pay out of pocket for my first two graduate classes. That means going into less debt!

I am oh so grateful that I got an A- overall in my first class!!! (Makes the tuition worth it!)

I am thankful that my hubby is fine with me quitting my job to return to school. He just left to go interview a bookkeeper for his business. I didn't even know he was looking for one. I asked him if he wanted me to do it, and he said he'd rather me not be stressed out and wants me to just concentrate on school!

My kids are finally learning to clean up the kitchen after they have cooked for themselves!!! (And with not a lot of complaining -- BONUS!)

Otto seems to be past his illness. I'm so very glad that it wasn't anything too serious. I was afraid he had eaten something he shouldn't have and had a blockage. Now if we could just decide on some new carpeting! Too many choices out there!

I should be getting my jeep back soon. Our mechanic has finally figured out what is wrong with it. Not a terribly cheap fix, but at least we'll be a two car family once again! Our jeep is 11 years old and has a few idiosyncrasies but I still love it. I will drive it until it is dead! (But Lord it can't die for at least another 2 years, okay?)

That's it for me this week. Please stop by Greg's General Store to join in on Thankful Thursday!

Great thank you list! I am glad Otto is better. New carpet? Does that mean you guys got the house we prayed for? I have not been keeping up as well as I should, lately. However, I have been praying!

No new house...just new carpeting. Otto's illness was the last straw for our rugs!

Rejoicing with you, Leslie!

I am thankful for a husband who brings me coffee in bed each morning, healthy kids and grandkids, and the Lord Jesus.

And my job.

Thank you for the thank you list. I have not done Thankful Thursdays in a while, but I do try to be thankful every day because every day there are many things for which to be thankful.
