I’m once again participating in Thursday Thirteen.

People are amazed that I don’t give up, that I keep going. Truth be known, I want to give up…quite frequently. But there are reasons why I don’t…

1. God hasn’t given up on me yet.

2-4. Jared, Katie, Rebekah

5. Justin

6. I’m too darned stubborn

7. Who would update my blog?

8. Kiki needs me and Justin would throw her out if I wasn’t here ;)

9. I haven’t seen Egypt yet.

10. I haven’t seen Australia yet.

11. I haven’t been to Ireland yet.

12. My friends don’t let me (yes, I mean all my cyber friends!)

13. I hate quitters.

I’m once again participating in Thursday Thirteen. I know that Thanksgiving isn’t until next week, but a post on my parenting board made me realize this would be a good opportunity to express my thanks.

1. I’m thankful to have a Lord and Savior who love me despite my shortcomings.

2. I’m thankful for the three wonderful children I’ve been blessed with.

3. I’m thankful for the husband whose snoring keeps me up every night.

4. I’m also thankful for a husband who puts up with so much with me…who doesn’t mind sleeping in a chair in the hospital just to be near me and to make sure I don’t need anything or try to get up unassisted.

5. I’m thankful for a mom that drives me absolutely batty at times, but who I know would walk through fire gladly for me (and I’d do it for her)

6. I’m thankful for my big brother who always beat me up when we were growing up, but never let anyone else even think about messing with me.

7. I’m thankful for truly wonderful in-laws (and believe me, I had the bad ones the first marriage!)

8. I’m thankful for a good relationship with my ex-husband, the father of my two oldest children.

9. I’m thankful that my stepdaughter from my first marriage is having a happy and healthy pregnancy and I’ll get to be called Granny all too soon!

10. I’m SO thankful that my stepson will be home from Iraq in just a matter of days.

11. I’m thankful for the chance to see another holiday come and go

12.  I’m thankful for old movies playing on PBS late at night

13.  I’m thankful for friends that while I may never have met them in person, absolutely keep me uplifted daily

What are you thankful for today?
