Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I got this cute little tag at Susanne's blog.. if you have never read her blog... oh your missing out... she is so uplifting.. and always has great ideas.. and a GIVE AWAY right now..!! So go peek!! Well .. with this tag I'm encouraged to give thanks. I kind of giggled at first because if you anyone knows me.. the last two months have been horrid ... I think everything I have owned has either broken or gone wrong.. from a ceiling falling down.. to a microwave catching on fire..down to the car.. UGH.... But through it all.. I have to give thanks....

**I'm thankful that I have a ceiling that can fall down and thankful that we had the $ to repair it.

**I'm thankful that we have my car.. make that two cars... no matter what the day brings we always have transportation and for the most part $ for gas.

** I'm thankful that I have a truly wonderful friend who has lent me her digital camera after mine broke... she knows my desires of photography... my payback.. school pictures for her kids!

** I'm thankful for my husband... even though at times we don't see eye to eye on some things.. we always end up compromising... that's one of the little gifts of marriage. And I'm thankful that I have NEVER had to hold a full-time job.. he has always provided well..

** I'm thankful for two goofy kids who seem to always bring a smile to my day.

**I'm thankful that this time of year that I LIVE in New England and I can see the four seasons of change.

So glad you did this today. Thanks for stopping by and letting me know so I could be encouraged as well. I really enjoyed your list, especially the first item : )

It is all about perspective, isn't it?

You made me smile right before I head off to dreamland, and that's a great thing. Thanks!

You are such a sweetie!

I have loved doing this thankful list. There have been weeks where it has been hard but the intentional giving of thanks has always helped me refocus on my good God and everything He has given me. Thanks for joining in. It was great reading your list!
