Thankful Thursday

It has been a while since I really had the time or energy to blog much. I love when I haven't really written anything and come to find myself writing a Thankful Thursday post! Really, focusing on the blessings that we have in our lives is a much better use of time than looking at everything that may be wrong.

Today I am thankful that God has given me the perseverance to make it through this last semester of school. Chemistry was quite difficult for me and my Philosophy class was a gigantic waste of time and energy for the most part. Last night I finished taking my final for Chemistry and will find out in about a week how I did. I still have a paper to finish for Philosophy - due tomorrow.

The main reason that I am thankful that school is out for a while now, is that I can spend all of my time focusing on my family. Right now, they really need it. Emily, the 3 year old, is starting to become defiant and I think that has a lot to do with her not getting enough positive attention while I was focused on school. Natalie is potty training, and anyone who has ever been down that road before knows that is a time consuming process - well worth it too!!

I have been facing many obstacles in life recently, and was not sure what to do or where to turn. Through lots of prayer and reflection I am back where I need to be, praise God! I am thankful that even when we are not sure what to do or think about turning our back on God, He will never do the same - He is everything we need, always! And He is good enough to remind me of that daily!!
