(Sent via e-mail to me from my sister)

I Am Thankful:

For the wife who says its hot dogs tonight,
Because she is home with me,
And not out with someone else.

For the husband
who is on the sofa
Being a couch potato,
Because he is home with me,
and not out at the bars.

For the teenager
Who is complaining about doing dishes
Because it means she is at home,
Not on the streets.

For the taxes I pay
because it means I am employed.

For the mess to clean after a party
Because it means I have been surrounded by friends.

For the clothes that fit a little too snug
Because it means I have enough to eat.

For my shadow that watches me work
Because it means I am out in the sunshine.

For a lawn that needs mowing,
Windows that need cleaning,
And gutters that need fixing,
Because it means I have a home.

For all the complaining
I hear about the government
Because it means we have freedom of speech.

For the parking spot
I find at the far end of the parking lot
Because it means I am capable of walking
And I have been blessed with transportation.

For my huge heating bill
Because it means I am warm.

For the lady behind me at church
Who sings off key
Because it means I can hear.

For the pile of laundry
Because it means I have clothes to wear.

For weariness and aching muscles
At the end of the day
Because it means I have been capable of working hard.

For the alarm that goes off
In the early morning hours
Because it means I am alive.

And finally for too much e-mail
Because it means
I have friends
Who are thinking of me!

Thrift Store Finds

Meredith's post about her Hope Chest inspired me to go thrifting with my future home in mind. I got some really good deals and I had a blast! Here is what I found:

Frame - $1.00
Picture Frame/Chalkboard/Key Holder - $2.00
4 Dessert Plates - $1.o0
Flower Coffee Cup - .50
Candlestick Holder - $2.00
Passion & Purity - .25

I only spent $6.75 total. I am going to continue to add to my Hope Chest collection and try to find the best deals possible to prepare for my future home and bless my future family. Thanks Meredith for being such an awesome example of a Godly single woman with a vision for marriage!

Commitment to Loveliness

I am suppose to list 5 things that I can work
on this week to increase femininity and beauty in my life.

1. Read the word, journal, and pray daily.
2. Be more intentional about preparing for my future home.
3. Plan a few meals for next week.
4. Be welcoming and friendly to those around me.
5. Be grateful.
