I love this time of the week when I can sit down and express in words how thankful I am for the many, many blessings God has given to me. My mind is full of many things this week, so I thought I'd just list them out (I promise I won't list them all... it could get lengthy! After all, God is so very good!)
- Safe travels - I have traveled much, much more than usual this year with my job. God has kept me safe each and every time. Additionally, as I've watched many of my co-workers experience all sorts of travel delays, I have only had one and I believe it was only about a 45 minute delay. Woo-hoo! This one is particularly great when it's time to catch that plane home each week... the quicker the airline gets me home, the better! :)
- Great neighbors - tonight while I am again out of town, my husband had a work emergency that needed to handled outside of normal business hours. One of our terrific neighbors watched both kids while he was gone, took them to their swimming lessons, and then on to McDonald's for dinner.
- Bible Studies with friends - this same neighbor invited me several weeks ago to join her and two other neighbors in a Bible Study that is led and hosted by a friend. It is a group of women (I think total is around 25) from around our community that last year started a summertime Bible Study. I was unable to join the first couple of weeks as I was out of town one week and helping with VBS at our church last week. I'll be able to join this next week and I am really looking forward to participating.
- Long weekends - I am so looking forward to the upcoming holiday weekend. A great time to relax and enjoy family and friends as we celebrate the freedoms we have in our country.
