Thursday's are usually a busy day for me (but not over the summer) - so I don't do "Thankful Thursday" often.

But today...

I'm thankful for:

  • Electricity - we have it
  • The folks that worked 24 hours a day, and the folks that came from surrounding states to work 24 hours a day in order to get that electricity turned back on.
  • Family
  • A weekend away (with family)
  • My new Bible (yesterday I bought the ESV Journaling Bible with very wide margins to write in)
  • My new reading glasses (to read above new Bible)
