Thankful Thursday #1

My friend Rebecca at The Road Home hosts "Thankful Thursday".  Rebecca is an incredible woman and blog author who just happens to love WVU football.  If you have a minute, go visit and join in!  As I think back over the past week, I realize that I have a lot to be thankful for. 

~  I'm thankful that I have a husband who hasn't given up on me.  Even though I know I'm hard to live with sometimes, he has stuck with me for 27 years.  He has been very patient with me, and has helped me grow into the woman I am.

~  I'm thankful for my boys.  Even though they're hard-headed (they get that honestly, though!), I'm so very thankful that I was able to have 3 healthy boys.

~  I'm so very thankful that I still have my parents with me.  My mom just celebrated her 82nd birthday, and my dad is 86.  They're both in relatively good health, still live in the same house where we grew up, and are still independent.

~ I'm very grateful that I found the blogging community.  Even though I've never met most of you in person, the words of encouragement are so much appreciated.   And the honesty!  Y'all aren't afraid to tell it to me like it is, which really helps me out when I need it! 

So, there's my first installment of Thankful Thursday.  Head over to The Road Home to meet Rebecca and join!


  1. Thanks for joining me!

    How awesome about your parents - I hope mine are around that long. My Nan is 83 and I keep telling her she has at least 17 more good years :).

  2. Awesome list of things to be thankful for. I always try to put together a list on Thursdays ... I'm running a little late today ... but it'll be up before too long! ;-)

  3. I am thankful our blog paths have crossed ;-)

  4. Amen! I too live with an amazing man who has loved me in spite of myself sometimes!

  5. I like your list...healthy kids is so huge and I think most of the time we take that for granted.

    Hope you have a happy new year!

  6. Great list. I love still having both my parents too. They are 78 and 83 and in relatively good health. I feel so blessed.

    Happy New Year

  7. I love hearing, OK, reading, words from a thankful heart. There is nothing prettier!

  8. Being thankful is important. Finding things to be thankful for make you appreciate life more. I love your list.

  9. SOOOO much to be thankful fills my heart as well.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Happy new year if we don't connect before then.

  10. I love those Pandora bracelets. This are so nice. They also make a gift that can be built upon for potentially years.

  11. What a sweet post, Mary! I'm so happy and thankful that I found you out there. It's been fun getting to know you!
