Thanksgiving Thursday

Playing along with What a trip:

Today I am thankful for:

1. Little man L has progressed from 2 to 3 steps to crossing the room in one week!

2. A better understanding of Little Man L's eye problems. The eye specialist has sent a report to my cousin who is also an eye specialist in Namibia and she has explained the problems to me in lay men's terms. He actually has two problems in the one eye, but at least I know more.

3. The rainbow I saw while driving home last night - such a positive reminder of God's presence to me.

4. That my kids love reading. I am an addict - so I value this highly.

5. For good books and reading. And the book club that provides me with a couple of good reads at R50,00 per month. (That is 5$ to you)

6. That the hubby's studies is really progressing well and that God and your prayers helped to carry him over his doubt.

7. That The Little Miss' tummy bug worked itself out by 12 last night and that we had a good sleep after. And that she is recuperating while napping as we speak (in the weirdest position!)

8. That my mom is able to take The Little Miss to ballet every Wednesday - she would not be able to go if not for that.

9. For inspiration to tackle and de-clutter my home. Slowly but surely we are making progress.

10. That I will hear Joan Friedman speaking on Friday night about raising emotionally healthy twins. I am looking forward to hearing her views.


  1. Great list! What a great sight & great reminder - a rainbow!

  2. i need to find that inspiration you speak about in #9...

    sounds like the talk will be wonderful, can't wait to hear about it!

  3. Great list!! Yeah for lil Man L!! Woo hoo!!

    We are also a family of readers...I hope it continues with the kids for a long time!!

    So glad Hubby has continued on with his studies and doing well - hoping you're all relieved with the decision to stick it out!

    I do hope you'll share some of what you hear about the speaker and twins...sounds interesting!

  4. What a wonderful list of thanks! You are blessed. Hugs to your little Miss. Poor kid!

  5. Thanks for the comment. We do have an awful lot in common. Say it isn't so that you still have suicide hour, I was hoping it would pass soon. Eeek!! Your kiddos are precious, I love the ics with the glasses, go ahead dancing queen.

  6. Great list-thanks for sharing!
    The Joan Friedman talk sounds so interesting!

  7. Love Rainbows! Definately a comforting feeling

  8. What a great thankful Thursday list!

    So glad your daughter is feeling better, and I think her sleeping position is too cute!

  9. Oh my our children sleep the same way. It's it amazing, how can they be comfortable.


So what's on your mind?
