Thankful Thursday

I have participated and not participated and decided that if I participated today perhaps I could move myself from a funk. Thank Iris at Sting my Heart for hosting Thankful Thursday. If you are interested in participating or just reading about what others are thankful for go and visit Iris.

  • I am thankful that God has gifted me with being crafty. Creating has made me feel closer to the creator.
  • I am thankful that God has blessed me with wonderful friends that are willing to listen to me ramble on and on sometimes about nothing and sometimes about everything.
  • I am thankful for God patience with me as I learn to pray more regularly.
  • I am thankful for Father Dennis' homily on Sunday. To hear him say that you are never alone that God is always with you. So on those days when I feel "alone" I no longer have to I can turn to God and say thank you for being with me today.
  • I am thankful for my kids. Although they can cause me to feel a bit crazy most days, I would not change a thing.
  • I am thankful for my stash of fabric...this keeps me busy. But my creative mind never stops and I find myself with many projects started and not a lot finished.

What are you thankful for?

Sorry that you have been feeling down, bless you.

I love fabric stashes! I love crafts! Your thankful heart blessed me! I think when we have the ability to "craft"--it's a God given talent...and sometimes if we aren't "crafting" we may be miserable---I know if I have a project going (even if I am a bit slow about it) I am happier.---so I guess I need to get back to that bedskirt I was working on huh?

Thanks for sharing today! I can relate with a lot of projects started! I need to finish a couple of them! LOL. The strawberry shortcake receipe looks delicious.

It helps me to get out of a funk to look beyond myself to see how truly blessed I am. I have been in the funk on and off for the last couple of months - I am glad that our Lord reminds me to focus on the positive things in my life...
I saw the little dress you made - that is just so adorable :)

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this week, despite you being in a funk.

Blessings on your weekend and beyond.

Your list resonates with many of us, I'm sure. I get into a funk from time to time and have to pull myself out of it. Ditto on the kids: They can drive me to wish I were a drinking woman! :-) But I wouldn't trade 'em.
