Thankful on Tuesday

Do you ever have nights where you wake up and suddenly your mind is filled with a thousand different thoughts?  Last night was one of those nights.

It seems like there is so much going on, sickness, job loss, financial struggles, just so much bad that we don't really focus on what is good.

So for today, I am going to be thankful.

One of the things that was running around in my head was how thankful I am for all the things my mom has taught me, so today she is my focus.

She taught me the importance of family.  

I am eternally grateful for the way she took us to church, every Sunday, and she still is a constant source of faith to all of us.

She shows me how to find joy in everything.  A sense of humor can get you through a lot people! She has always loved her kids unconditionally.  Always!  

Believe it or not, we are not as perfect as you may perceive us. 

She instills family traditions, like yearly vacations with the WHOLE family, and getting together every week to eat as a family.

I am so thankful God chose her as my mother.  

I know, I am truly blessed.

I finally finished another one of my goodwill finds.

It started out like this.

Then it got a makeover.

Now it has a new purpose!

Cute elephant, huh?

Sunday Scripture

Blessed is he who has regard for the weak;
the Lord deliver him in times of trouble.
The Lord will protect him and preservere his life;
he will bless him in the land
and not surrender him to the desire of his foes.
The Lord will sustain him on his sickbed
and restore him from his bed of illness.
Psalm 41: 1-3
