Thankful Thursday

This week, I've been particularly thankful for:

~My loving husband.  He's held me while I've cried and called me on negative attitudes.  More importantly, he made me defend my position on something because he doesn't want me to be swayed. I must admit, I didn't take that as gracefully as I should have, but in retrospect I'm very grateful that he cares that much for me.

~Friends near and far who prayed me through last weekend

~Grace upon grace

~An answered prayer

~Miss Marple.  I'd forgotten how much I adore her!

~The time, energy, and motivation to continue to simplify our home. The more I purge, the more I want to purge!

What are you thankful for this week?

Having a husband who loves us enough to point out negative attitudes is something to be thankful for!

I'm grinning about being confronted by your husband and held to the truth. I also dislike those moments - in the moment. But overall, I'm incredibly grateful that my husband is both brave, loving and faithful enough to want me to follow Christ with my whole heart and mind!

Great list, Melissa.

Thanks for mentioning Ms. Marple. I haven't read Agatha Christie in a long time and should dig out some of those books.
