Thankful Thursday!!


I am so Thankful for my home!! I was able to buy a house 17 years ago ! I was so excited when the loan went through (with much prayer) and the girls and I were able to move from the apartment we had lived in for 11 years!! To tell you the truth I had almost lost hope that we would ever get to move. I try never to take my home for granted!


I am so Thankful for our water!! We are not in a drought!! I think we need to join in the prayers with our friends in the Southeast who are suffering from the lack of water. We need to join their prayers for rain.
I pay dearly for our water. Like out the Wazoo!! The city has put some kind of crazy sewer tax on our water bills and mine runs about 65.00 a month. Some times more and some times less!! But Praise God I have the money to pay for it!!


I am so Thankful for family and friends and blogging friends who lift my family up in prayer daily. Nancy has to go to the Doctor's office for a shot tomorrow morning. I am posting this early because I will be gone. I am so Thankful she is not worse! She isn't any better! But being not any worse and being stable is Good! If you are new to my blog Nancy is my 45 year old special needs daughter who has Lupus really bad.


I am Thankful for a Savior who loves me unconditional and forgives me daily. I am so glad He is my friend!! He loves you, too!! He is just waiting for you to invite Him in to your heart today!!

Good Afternoon Grams,
I've added you to my blogroll. I hope everything goes well for Nancy at the doctor. My hubby used to go through Kansas City every week when him and his uncle were team driving and having to go to Surrey, Canada each week. They got tired of it and now they work for a local farmer who has trucks also. I'm glad you stopped by yesterday. I have something big to be Thankful for also. I'm saving it for tomorrow. It's going to be a 2fer. Tomorrow is Friday Show and Tell. I've never done that yet, but tomorrow I'm going to and after I post it, you will know why. We are to be Thankful everyday, not just Thursday. Well, I've got some more visiting to do, so take care my friend and have a great Thursday. God Bless You.

Hugs,
Karen H.

P.S. I will keep Nancy in my thoughts and prayers.

Sandi said...

Thank you for the reminder. I do take my house for granted. My home to is the result of many months of prayers.

PEA said...

Such a wonderful thankful post, dear Grams. We too, have the sewer tax added to our water bill so it really does add to the amount! The very best of luck to Nancy on her doctor's appointment, I do hope it goes well for her...getting a shot is not something most of us enjoy!! Ugh! You take good care of yourself my friend. xoxo

Great list! I hope the Dr appointment went well. That is a very high water bill. Ours run around $33.00 a month. This includes sewer as well. It also takes care of weekly garbage pick up of household waste, yard waste plus other discards. We have three different garbage trucks that come by. I will remember to be thankful that ours is so low from now on.
