Thankful Thursday, it's summertime.
It's officially summer. Or so the weatherman says. From what I have seen it has been summer for quite some time now. We have already had some upper 90 degree weather and we are into that summer weather pattern. You can also tell it is summer because a lot of people are complaining about the heat. You won't hear me complain because I prefer heat over cold. But let me get to my Thankful Thursday post since that is what this is all about. With so much going well for me right now it is hard to pick just a few but here goes:
First off my oldest son graduated from high school. Even though that doesn't sound like anything earth shattering, there are a lot of kids dropping out these days. I am thankful that he stuck with it.
I am thankful for the fresh cucumbers and tomatoes that I just picked from my garden. There is nothing quite like fresh veggies that you grew yourself. Ok maybe I had a little help from God.
I am thankful that the two snakes that I flushed out this week weren't poisonous. One was a glass snake and the other was a rat snake. The glass snake actually crawled across my hand while I was working on my hands and knees and the rat snake was the biggest one I have ever seen. It was about 4 ft long.
I am thankful for all the free plants I got last Saturday from a friend of mine. She got them from a friend and then passed them along to me. Now all I have to do is re-pot them and I can either sell them or keep them for myself.
I am again thankful for the rain that God has given us. We have been getting it at night and we wake up with the air smelling fresh.
I hope you have something to be thankful for this week. I am sure you can think of something.
Have a great day,
