Thankful Thursday

Joining my friend Tricia in Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for SUMMER! Aren't you having a great time? And for those with kids....Aren't you having a blast with the kids????

I am thankful for Ohio. Yes. The Ohio where I have my windows thrown open wide for the third day in a row. The Ohio that has had a 55 degree morning on July 1st. My house is full of fresh air and the breeze can be downright chilly in the shade. Now this is summer living.

I am thankful for the ability to put the teen in braces without a huge financial strain....which means I am also thankful for Dave Ramsey and his Financial Peace program. Its been life changing for us.

I am thankful for the upcoming 4 day weekend with daddy. It feels like we are getting to make up for all the lost time from deployments. Well - except it can't undo the teenaged angst it caused our son. But the girls and I feel downright spoiled with all the daddy time!

I am thankful for our country and all those that serve/served her. Military, fire fighters, police, emergency personnel..... I thank God for all of you.

And I am thankful for the museums and zoos that make this a free weekend for military families. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. (Columbus Zoo here we come.)

I am thankful for friends...scattered everywhere but still so close to my heart. Miss you guys!

What are you thankful for?


  1. I miss you too! Thanks for your comments on my blog and for thinking of me. SO glad to hear your summer is going so well!!!

  2. We've been having very mild weather this week as well - I'm incredibly thankful!!! Warm enough to go to the pool, but not unbearably hot and humid like last week!
