I'm Thankful For....

Denise at Laughing with Spoons is back this week with her Thankful Tuesdays.
This weeks topic is: This Past Week.

With the kind of week I had, I think I need to now sit down and think about the positives about it. I almost feel like she did this one just for me too :o)

So here go....

1. I am thankful that my friendship is okay, even though after I babysat her dog and then five days later she had to put her down. Although I am now second guessing her letter to me (I responded to it too fast because I was already feeling crappy that day and didn't take time to re-read the letter before responding).

2. I am thankful that I now know that the dog was more and likely not under my care when she ate something that wouldn't pass. That is a huge burden off my shoulders.

3. I am thankful that I have a wonderful friend that was there for me to let me vent out my anger about the things that hurt my heart yet also made me angry at the same time.

4. I am thankful that my dog is okay after I was so worried about him because one morning he was acting wounded and I knew something wasn't right. I had a feeling it was either his legs or his back. It was his back and he is now on crate rest for 4-6 weeks. I feel bad for him but I'm just happy he is still with me.

5. I am thankful that I was able to have a movie date with my husband this past Sunday. We went and saw My Bloody Valentines in 3-D. We never get time alone together and I am thankful for that.

6. I am thankful that after my daughter going over to my MIL's yesterday where my BIL lives with his fiance, that she has now realized that we are better parent's then the two of them would be. That she is happy we are her parent's and that's all that matters :o)

7. I am thankful that my hubby still has his job, even though things don't look too good, he still has it and I'm thankful for that.

8. I am thankful I still have my job. I don't like that I have to go to work (I would rather be a SAHM) but I do like my job and I feel secure with it too.

9. I am thankful that I had the opportunity to meet Don Piper, the author of 90 Minutes in Heaven this past Sunday at church. What an incredible human being and story he had to share and I am so thrilled to have shook his hand. I now want to go buy his book.

10. I am thankful for all of you that gave words of encouragement and the loving comments about my daughter and my friend's dog. For it was you guys that made me feel better and I am truly thankful for that!

So, what are you thankful for this past week?

I never want to miss an opportunity to count my blessings.

I am thankful my sister is emotionally gaining steam again.

I am thankful my family is well.

I am thankful I live in a country where we have personal freedom.

I could go on & on, but I won't.
I'll let some others join in the fun.

I'm so glad you can find the good in last week. It was a toughy for you.
I guess what doesn't break us just makes us stronger!

GREAT list! I know it was a tough week for you - and I find when the week is a tough one - that's the best time to find what you are thankful for!

By the way...I am thankful for YOU!
