Thankful Thursday

God has blessed me with a pretty amazing life. 
As I sit at the computer thinking about what exactly to write today I realized that is very hard to narrow it down.
So this might seem like a bit random but here are some things that are popping into my head.

I am thankful for a reliable vehicle. I spend a TON of time on the road and in Alberta you are never sure what the road conditions are going to be like from moment to moment so to have a reliable vehicle that I am comfortable driving is huge for me.

I am thankful that I was able to help out my parents today by driving a little over an hour away to pick up my Dad's golf cart that was getting serviced so that he can have it for Monday. (They are closed all weekend)

I am thankful that my children have all turned out just fine. There was many a days when I wondered if I was doing the right thing. In fact I am sure some of those times I wasn't at all. However they are healthy, happy individuals. 

I am thankful that my hubby loves me so much. He gets me. Not a ton of people do. He puts up with my silly sense of humor and my sometimes flip flop of emotions. :)

I am thankful that I get to spend Easter with my parents and some siblings. We try to get together as often as we can and I always enjoy it when we do. Making memories one minute at a time. :)

I am thankful that I have an amazing God that I serve. Where would I be without Him?? Lost and Broken. 
I turn to Him so much and He is always there. :)

Come check out more thankful Thursday posts at Red Oak Lane and at The Marathon Mom.


  1. What a great Thankful list! I just read your about that you are homeschooling your 13 year old daughter for the first time. I am about to peruse your site to find out more!

    Thank you so much for visiting my site. And for all your kind words. I'll be back to visit. :)

    1. Thank you! It has been a bit of a challenge homeschooling her but I am so glad we decided to do it. I am looking forward to next year when I can put all the stuff I learned into practical use.

      Feel free to look around and I look forward to seeing more of you. :D

  2. Hi Sherri! I love that your children have turned out just fine, despite times you wondered if you were doing the right thing. I think that's something parents just can't hear enough. I love talking with friends whose kids are older than mine. I also love "He gets me". Simple, powerful, true. I want to tuck those words away to share with my kids for when they start 30 years...ha ha.

    1. Hahaha, It is amazing how fast time flies. My children were babies just a year ago and now they are 20, 18 and 14.
      It is hard when you are busy in the trenches to see past that. I also enjoy talking to parents and being able to relate to what they are going through or what they have gone through.

  3. Great list!! I am blessed every week by reading lists of big and small thankful things. I love writing and reading these lists every week. Thank you for linking up!

    1. I love linking up. So much to be thankful for and it is a great time to remember that each week. :)
