Thankful Thursday, I see the light

Welcome everyone to another Thankful Thursday. I want to thank everyone who stuck with me through the darkness. Yes I have been a bit down lately and some of you have noticed and commented but now I am beginning to see a small glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel and I am hoping it isn't a train. :)For the first time in what seems like forever I had had a lot of good things happen to me and I don't have to search for thankful items. Some of these may sound trivial but little things add up.

First off I do want to thank everyone who has been giving me pep talks and keeping me motivated to keep pushing on. You know who you are and so does God and he thanks you as well.

I finally got my little boat running well. It took persistence and a lot of hard work but it is running well now. The reason this is such a biggie is because with money so tight, going out in the boat is the only vacation my family is getting. Those family boat rides seem like heaven.

Our insurance is going to pay for my son's teeth to be fixed. I have two insurance companies, one for medical and the other for dental. As it turned out neither covered wisdom tooth removals so we were left high and dry and my son needed his removed. One dentist was booked so we went to another who said they would submit the paperwork even if we aren't covered. Well the insurance company said they would cover most of it anyway. That's a big money load off our shoulders.

We got rain this week. It only gave us one day of relief but some is better than none. I am still getting lots of cucumbers and peppers if anyone wants some. :)

It looks like we can get our house refinanced which will give us some more breathing room. Even though we were making it, it was by the skin of our teeth and that skin was starting to get a bit thin. (too much brushing I guess) Anywhoo things look good and we should be doing better in a month or two. Keep praying for us but I think we are on the right track.

I could actually go on but I am going to leave it at 5. No sense being boastful. Did you notice this was actually done on Thursday this week? See things are getting better.

Have a wonderful day and please join me in being thankful

I am thankful we are getting a pontoon boat!
American Bank called to try to get Stacy to ref and when the guy heard our fixed rate he said "No way can I touch taht". Made me feel good. Glad you can find some breathing room my friend.

Glad things are looking up for you guys. Financial troubles are the pits- keeping faith that God has things in hand whilst doing one's best with what one has in important..huh! I know!
The boat sounds good- perfect, in fact!

So glad that things are looking up and you are seeing the light once more. We are holding tight, believing for a big miracle to happen, and that God will come through like He always does. Here is hoping that you enjoy a great day of fishing on Father's day.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I'm always happy to hear good news! I'm so sorry you've been going through these dark times. I know the feeling but also know God takes car of us.

I think you should be thankful you have dental insurance. My last visit cost $1,200. We just can't afford dental insurance and if you know anything about British people you will know they have terrible teeth -- plus I'm a sugar freak

Glad to see things are looking up a bit. Tough times are hard...we've had our share of them! We must have all your rain up here...the sun keeps trying to make an appearance but seldom stays long. It's supposed to be hot here this weekend...maybe our weather will finally start being normal again!

I've missed a lot of posts. I'm thankful to have the time to be back "in" now. I do hope you are well and yes, it is always excellent to recall that which we are thankful for- thanks for reminding me of that.
