This is my first Thursday Thanks Tank. To be honest, I should have started earlier. Thinking back, it should have been one of those things I promised to do around New Year’s. LOL Seriously, I often find that my ADD gets me so caught up in the minutia of daily “stuff” that I often lose the “bigger picture.” I’m frequently overwhelmed by the details and fine print of life without looking at all I already have to be thankful for.
In a week filled with sick kids and sleepless nights, the simple things of comfort have filled my tank this week:
Caffeine – enough said? LOL
Humidifiers/Fleece pajamas – comfort for the kids is comfort to a mom’s mind
On-call pediatrician, the RN call-in line, antibiotics, and health insurance – more peace to a tired mother’s state of mind
Tandem naptimes – the comfort of a quiet, uninterrupted shower
Da Hubby: someone who takes one look at me as he comes in the door and then watches kids so I can go to midweek service, and who deals with garbage, broken appliances and ever-growing snow banks and ice slicks.
Grandparents/Church family: their conversations, advice, and prayers got me through the week
Da Hubby’s job: God has blessed Da Hubby with a job (despite its uncertainties) that allows me to stay home, have reliable transportation, and things around me (like the computer) that make my life easier.
Bread machine/new pans: small and silly but a loaf of bread baking and new sparkly pans cooking a home-cooked meal…our definition of “comfort”
The Blood – the miracle of my body’s blood and all it does but, more importantly, the miracle of His blood covering His Body.
Those are mine. Go to Just Peachy for others...
