Thankful Thursday

God is good no matter what. He has chosen to bless my family in innumerable ways. However, sometimes life gets uncomfortable and I don't know how He tolerates my whining. I am so thankful for a gracious God whose compassion is renewed for me each day. I am thankful for His direction and His peace when I submit to His leading.

Having two sick kids this week has made me thankful for some different things: accommodating pediatricians, good insurance, available medicine, and a homeschooling schedule that is more flexible.

On a fun note, I am thankful that I get to go outlet shopping BY MYSELF (ie: no kids!) this weekend. I do think that my hubby is biting his tongue and praying that there is not much there to catch my eye. Honestly, I don't shop very much. My deals are usually at garage sales (which I eagerly anticipate). This weekend I have the opportunity to join close to 100 other ladies at a retreat. The resort just happens to be close to the outlets.

I am thankful in advance for what God is going to teach me.

For more thankful hearts visit Lynn's site. She will be hosting Thankful for this month.

Hope the kids feel better soon, but lucky you getting to go shopping all by yourself. That is so fun and relaxing.
