Thanking God on Friday's

~ I am thankful for...Josh's second job. Despite not having him at home a whole lot, I know that this time in our lives won't last. And with the economy the way that it is now, I am thankful that he was able to get this job when there are so many others out there who can't even find one.

~I am thankful for...our new church home. God is so good! Having found a new place to call "home" has given us the spiritual push that we needed to really go all out for Christ each and every day. God is also showing me things he wants for me and how to get there. He has provided alot of the tools, now it's just up to us to decide what to do with them.

~I am thankful for...new friendships. I didn't realize how much I was missing by not really having a strong support system of friends around me. Being military makes it hard to make friends...especially when all you do everyday is take care of a baby. I'm not taking class right now and don't have a whole lot of resources to pull friends from. Being in church, I've already met some wonderful new friends and I am so excited to see God grow these relationships.

~I am thankful for...Mickey Mouse, Handy Manny, Tigger & Pooh, Agent Oso and Apple Juice. All of the little things that keep Noah Quiet and occupied in the mornings when I have things that I need to do. Criticize me if you want, yes I let my not-even-11 month old watch cartoons. It keeps him still and entertained while I fold a load of clothes or eat breakfast. And those of you that don't, good for you. Glad to see you have more sanity and patience than I do.

~I am thankful for...the opportunity to stay at home with my son. I know alot of moms that wish they could be home with their children and I am so happy that God has allowed me to do this. I get frustrated and I get bored, but it's worth each and every single moment that I have with him. Even when the days are long and the job goes thankless and unappreciated. I know that I am accomplishing something.

What are you thankful for today?

Hi Courtney!
What a great idea!! I told God this morning that I was sorry I didn't spend more time praising and thanking Him. He is so worthy of that!!

Sounds like you are a very blessed woman! And they are very blessed to have you as a wife and mama. ;0)

Great list!!! Please pray for my hubby. I work part time-by choice to allow me more time with my child. I have a degree, but hubbs is working on his. He has a job that allows me to stay home part time, but it is running him in the ground and he has been searching for another one. He has some interviews lined up and we have surrendered this desire to God and we fully trust that He will continue to provide for us. I recently told hubbs that we were going to instead of pray for another job to praise God for what He is going to bring our way! I hope God will continue to nurture and enrich your new friendships. Friends are WAY important. I know you must get lonely and feel rather isolated at times and other times, you feel like you are the most blessed woman in the world!!! Praise God for this beautiful mess He has given His children!!

Love your list. It's always the little things that make me the most thankful. Your blog is SO pretty! One of my brothers is in the military & is in Iraq for the third time. Nice to meet you! Holly
