Thankful Thursday...oops Friday

I am thankful for so many things in my life. I don't say it enough though and sometimes I forget just how blessed I truly am.

- I have a wonderful husband and two happy healthy children
- I have friends who care about me and want to spend time with me
- I have my darling pets
- I have food and a home
- I have choices in life
- I have freedom to speak, worship God and have an opinion
- People respect me
- I am valued
Luv and Hugs
God Bless


What is the last trip you took and where did you go?
Last trip I took was last year to Brisbane. DH had a leadership conference to go to so me and the kids came with him and stayed with his grandfather. Was an interesting weekend. We thought we'd had a great time and everyone got on well but after we got back all this wierd stuff blew up. Don't want to really go into it. DH's family are difficult to say the least. Let's just say it'll be a long while before we spend time with these particular relatives again. Oh I should say this doesn't included DH's mother. It's his father's side of the family.
Anyway I'd much rather go into future trips. DH is away at the Sunshine Coast for a Pastors and Leaders retreat at the moment. He gets back on Saturday night. Next weekend I'm off to a Ladies Retreat at Mapleton. Soooooooo loooking forward to that. The theme this year is dreams come true. On Saturday night we are having a cinderella party. Should be great fun.
Also our family is going to Easterfest this year. Can't wait for that one. DD is a huge Rebecca St James fan and want s to get her autograph. Only bit I'm not too sure about is camping. I'm an indoors girl.

What I enjoy doing

Write a list of things you really enjoy doing:

  1. Drinking chai vanilla lattes
  2. Scrapbooking
  3. cross-stitch
  4. crochet
  5. craft in general
  6. spending time with friends
  7. reading
  8. writing, especially poetry
  9. cuddling
  10. eating good food
  11. looking at a nice clean house, not the cleaning though
  12. spending time with my pets

I don't most of these things anywhere near enough. Looking at this list makes me realise that I should make the time to do things for me. I do read alot though and I am spending more time with friends. I actually have friends now. Yippee! I used to have a lot of aquaintences but not real friends.
When I'm down I tend to just sit playing games on the computer or watching TV. I want to start doing other things like the list above. I look forward to journaling about my experiences doing just that.
Luv and Hugs
