Thankful Thursday

So I woke up this morning and had two realizations: 1.) It's Friday!, followed quickly by 2.) I didn't blog yesterday! Oops. So I'm here a little late, and I'll post date it to make it look like I was on the ball. :-) In no particular order, here are a few things that made my heart happy this week...

1. My very first iPod! My valentine gave me a cute little iPod shuffle for VDay. :-) I'm always bugging him for his when I go to the Y, and now I have one of my very own. The best part was that Josh saved up his cash tips, the money he usually uses for odds and ends, with my gift in mind. I thought that was sweet. :-)

2. Kaden's new nicknames for us: "Honey Mom" and "Honey Dad." (He also calls me "Sir Mom" and "Ma'am Mom," but I prefer "Honey Mom." He cracks me up!) I'm not sure this counts as something to be thankful for, but it does make me smile every time he says it, and since I make up the rules for Thankful Thursday, this one counts. No one in our family actually calls each other "honey," so I'm not sure where this one came from...but it sure is funny. He's always sure to include this nickname when he's asking sweetly for something that might be off limits.

3. This is a bit belated, but I'm really thankful that we made it through the month of January without any financial boo-boos. January's always a very lean month at Josh's job, but God provided!

4. I mentioned this on Valentine's Day, but I want to say again that I am very thankful that my parents are back together. It was a difficult eight months for them...and for all of us. This is a huge praise and answer to prayer for my entire family!! My parents are continuing to rebuild their relationship, so if you think of me, please say a prayer for them. Thanks!

5. My newly reinstalled healthy living plan is going well. I'm getting healthier as we speak! :-)

Well, I think that's good for today. I hope everyone's having a great week!

I'm glad you love your shuffle! I'm so proud of you for working-out so diligently - and I'm slightly worried you'll be able to beat me up soon. Ouch.

I'm thankful for... You.
