Thankful Thursday!!




This is Thankful Thursday and I haven't done one of these forever!! But I think it is time to write down all of the Blessing from God! Go here to join in with a Thankful heart.


I am so thankful that Nancy and I are feeling so much better!!
I am so Thankful for losing weight!! Yes! I have lost weight!!! I have lost 25 pounds since November when I had the stents put in my kidneys. Really it is 15 pounds since 10 of it was fluid.I lost 10 pounds in two or three days the first week.I have not counted calories but eating smaller portions and and watching my salt intake like a hawk!!
When snacking I eat fruits and veggies.


I am so thankful that Nancy's health issues are better. Since June we traveled 20 miles twice a month for her lab work at the KC CancerCenter for her lupus needs up until the last of January!! We still need prayer for her metal health issues.
We now only have to see this specialist every 6 months!!


I am so Thankful that Kelly was able to get herself a used SUV and it runs real good! It is so wonderful to be able to come and go when we want to!! It has room for canes, walkers, or wheel chairs!!


I am so Thankful for Jesus!!! As the old hymn says "With out HIM how lost I would be"




This is so sweet! Denise, Shorty Bear sent this to me and I think it is so neat I wanted to share it with you all!! If you would like this feel free to make a copy. I don't know how to make it smaller to put on my side bar.

Great list! and as for you putting that picture on your side bar you do not need to re-size it. Just go to add a gadget and then go to add a picture and then upload it from where you have it saved on your computer.. Make sure that you check the shrink to fit box and blogger will do the rest :)

Carolyn,

What a wonderful Thankful Thursday post. I'm glad that both you and Nancy are doing better. I will continue to pray.

What a lovely graphic Denise sent you. I love it so much I couldn't resist taking a copy.

Congratulations on the weight loss. That isn't easy. You're doing a great job.

I'm praying for you and Nancy. I hope you have a great weekend. It's been nice weather here, but now a cold front has moved in. Oh, how I long for spring.

Blessings,
Mary
