this week I'm thankful...

I always have so much to be thankful for and I love writing it down....makes it more impactful...like makes me more aware of what I'm truly thankful for and why.

This week I am REALLY thankful for health.  It seems like every week I find out about someone else who has cancer or is sick with a severe illness.  So very thankful that I'm healthy.  And Steve's healthy.  And so is Claire.

I'm also thankful for a new home to move into.  We're staying here in San Diego, but the home we're renting sold so we had to look for a new place.  Welp, we found one...after what seemed like months of looking...and we're all excited about it.

I'm thankful for my parents...for the example they've set as to what it means to be godly parents...for the way they live their lives serving the Lord...even when it's most difficult...for the way they love Claire and love spending time with her...for the way they faithfully pray for their kids and grandkid.

I'm thankful for my husband...and how hard he works.  I'm thankful for his passion for guns and ammo, for all things Apple, for Rush Limbaugh and all he's learned from him, and mostly for his passion for staging and lighting.

I'm so thankful for friends...especially the ones I've known for years.  I'm not one who has a lot of friends...and it takes time for me to make really good friends.  So I'm thankful for the really good friends I have...the ones where we've put in the years of good and bad, ups and downs.  I wish I could see these friends more often, but I'm glad I get to see 4 of them within 5 days...2 of them I get to have dinner with tonight...so excited...and so thankful.

This week I'm so thankful I live in San Diego...no snow, no weather below 40 degrees during the day, beautiful beaches just 15 minutes away....oh I love this city!
