Thankful Thursday - Life's Joys

Hello everyone, it is again Thursday, a day dedicated to thinking of the wonderful things for which we are thankful.

I really enjoy the time that I take to think of the things I have in my life to be thankful for - from the smallest to the largest - and the time I spend reading other women's Thankful Thursday posts. If you are interested, you can find a list of participating blogs on Lynn's blog, Spiritually Unequal Marriage, where Thankful Thursday had been hosted in January.

I am thankful for a lot today!

I had a doctors appointment on Tuesday, and everything is going great with the pregnancy. The baby's heart rate was in the 160's, which is right where it should be. I am in my 13th week, and soon get to find out if we are having a boy or a girl.

I also started classes this week, and so far Chemistry is challenging but is not the looming nightmare I was afraid of. I am thankful that I am able to count on my husband to take care of the kids and fix dinner and do what needs to be done on the nights that I have to go to school.
I am also thankful for the ambition Zack has, as he is also starting to take classes and get the prerequisites out of the way so that he can go into the Culinary Arts program at TMCC- all while working and being a family man!

Zack went to the men's breakfast at church last Saturday, and he enjoyed it. Their numbers are growing, and for that we are also thankful! We are praying the the church numbers rise as well, not just at our church but through out the country and the world!

I am thankful that Focus on the Family is supposed to have a commercial during the Super Bowl - what an audience! Hopefully it touches many people with their "Celebrate Family, Celebrate Life" theme.

I have so much more to be thankful for, but I will wrap up with one more, then head over to read some other Thankful Thursday posts:

Things are going great with our family - everyone is healthy, happy, and getting along great! Emily is continuing to learn more about God and loves to teach it to Natalie, it is one of the cutest things I have ever seen!

Have a blessed day and week!
