Thankful Thursday


Happy Thursday, friends, and happy bonus blog post day! It's one of those weeks. 🤣 I'm so glad you're here to join in with this weekly gratitude post. If you're wondering, my other blog post today is about the books that I read in April. 

Here are a few things right out of my gratitude journal for this week. I am thankful for...

  • the new mercies of the Lord
  • that He has kept me at peace this week and not overwhelmed with things to remember
  • friends pitching in at work
  • Todd shopping at Sam's to help me figure out amounts of snacks to buy
  • seeing Drew on Monday while he was close by
  • feeding him lunch and sending him home with groceries
  • free books 
  • grocery delivery service from Walmart plus (I'm in the free trial phase and loving it)
  • easy dinners
  • the fact that it's May!!
  • my portable fan when I'm melting at work
  • great books to read (I'm still on a roll)
  • music that is encouraging
  • my Mom and getting to talk to her on my way to work. She gives me such helpful advice! 
  • the laughter that happens often in our home
  • that all of the boys are really close to their dad
  • the fact that we found a couple of missing birth certificates this week
  • morning coffee
  • pretty flower beds
  • an amazing work environment 
  • Tuesday night church and that I was having so much fun that I forgot I was there to "work"
  • my to-do list notes app on my phone
  • beautiful weather to unload large quantities of things from my car
  • that Chloe finally got spayed yesterday, something we've all been dreading

What are you thankful for this week? I'd love to hear from you! Thanks for reading my blog each day, friends. I am thankful for you! Love to all.

  1. How would we live without His new mercies every morning? Hope Chloe recovers quickly. I like easy dinners too. Plans for our dinner tonight is very simple...fried potatoes, salad & beef patties. Yummy! Have a great day Jennifer.

    1. I don't even want to think about that! We would all be lost, literally and figuratively. Thank you for that! She's doing great today, and is acting like herself again. I hope you've had a great week, Cathy!

  2. What wonderful reasons to be thankful.
    I don't think I could cope without my groceries being delivered, our nearest supermarket is 2 bus rides away.
    I hope Chloe is recovering well.

    1. Thanks, Kim! I am right there with you and feel the same now. Chloe is acting normal again, which makes us all happy!

  3. Yay for lots of great things this week! I hope Chloe recovers quickly; I know you are so relieved to have that behind you and best of luck today!!

    1. Thanks for that, Joanne! She is doing really well after having to go see the vet today. We were worried about her for a while, but all is good now!
