 30 Days of Thankfulness; Day 4 {Thankful for daddy/son bonding and completing things I start}

Today: I am thankful for a day off from school for my Jay and K.

For turning off our alarms and sleeping in a bit {Oh glorious...}.

For happy boy giggles on the way to preschool.

For a brilliant sun rise that made my heart swell.

Today: I am grateful for Dave's flexible work schedule.

For an impromptu "take your son to work" day for Jay... and the grin I will never forget when I dropped him off with Daddy.

For a shopping list emailed off, and a husband willing to do the "big shopping" with two littles {wow...}.

I am thankful for time with K and Kai.

For our "toast, movies, and candy party" .

Today: I am grateful for planning, and scheming, and dreaming. I've been doing lots of it.

I am also glad to be a part of something bigger than myself. A plan for my life that is unfolding in a surprising, hard, incredibly rewarding, and stretching way.

I am so thankful for God's power helping me to follow through with things I planned/committed to do this year.  I struggle greatly with discipline. I struggle with follow through. I give up on stuff. I procrastinate.

I have made this a matter of prayer, And guess what??! It has really helped {*gasp*}.

Two things in particular that come to my mind are the reading through the Bible plan that I started on January first this year and the photo a day project I really wanted to do. Both things are on track. That's big for me.

The pictures are obviously not as big of a deal as the Bible reading, but both were things that I wanted to start, continue, and not get discouraged if I fell behind on. I have missed some days. Several actually. But I have learned to either start where I left off, or jump in to get caught up. Like I said: big.

{Don't forget to thank Him for your blessing today!}
