Although it's raining right now,
I'm very much THANK-full for "sunnier" days!
Most of you understand exactly what that means.

So very THANK-full for precious Friends.
REAL Friendship is a gift from God!

THANK-full for those Glade air fresheners that have the batteries and a can of sweet smelling room deodorizers that you can set to automatically spray at intervals during the day!

Especially THANK-full for the most precious grand kiddos on the planet!  As Silas was leaned back on my lap watching a movie.....

Silas, whispering:  "Nannie, I love you."
Nannie: "I love you, too, sweet Boy."
Then, he takes his little arm and crooks it up under my chin and around my neck and pulls me close.
Be still my heart!!!

THANK-full for the invite from my sister-in-law to come play with her precious grand-girl. What a joy when she finally warmed up to me and let me pick her up and she laid her sweet little head on my shoulder. Babies are the best therapy, Y'all! And, she sent me home with a huge bowl of homemade chicken casserole.

THANK-full that it's FINALLY getting cool enough for the first pot of homemade chili and hot tamales!

Finally had the energy to vacuum and dust the house for which I'm pretty sure my floors and furniture was very THANK-full!

Y'all I have the most awesome PCP. I went to her a few weeks ago with my vertigo and before she left the room she said, "Let me pray with you." She got up, took my hands in hers and prayed the most precious prayer. 
How awesome is that? 
I.am.blessed!

A Bible study I went through a few years ago asked the question "when are you the most real?" I feel I can be the most real when I write my blog posts. I can share from my heart in words that I might not ever be able to express to your face. I can be vulnerable and real and honest and not have to be fearful of criticism. I can share my love of Jesus and that's truly what my blog is all about anyway!

And, this is in no way is the end of things I'm THANK-full for, but I could never in the world find the right words to even begin to express how grateful I am that the God in heaven loves me and cares about me and what I'm going through and sends His blessings on me each and every day and how He speaks to my heart through His word EXACTLY what I need to hear, whether it be encouragement or a reprimand - it still shows His love for me like a good, good Father should!
