Thankful Thursday, 8.18.11

There is always so much to be thankful for! It really is quite amazing.

I was going to write about something else today - but then realize that it is so important to take a minute to yourself, realize what God has blessed you with and give thanks.

I am thankful for... 

-A man that is incredibly patient with me while I figure out the best make-up to get.

-Mending and building friendships that at one point, I thought was destroyed.

-Growing in Christ and gaining wisdom to forgive, forgive, forgive. Life is far too short otherwise.

-Having a fantastic meeting for Baby Pickel - have a great sponsor who is going to sponsor a Walk Benefit (Gobble Trot) in November to help raise money so we can purchase Thanksgiving food baskets for those in need.

-Starting to make jewelry again. Shopping for the beads and choosing color schemes is so fun.

-Having the owner at the gym being so grateful for what I do that he always thanks me for doing a great job.

-Recently winning a devotional from a giveaway. (Thank you!) I cannot wait to start it and share some of it with you all.

-Being sore from a stellar workout yesterday. (Makes me feel so accomplished!)

-Having the ability to offer a commission-based job for those who really need it. (If you're one of them - let me know!)

-For being awarded the Versatile Blogger Award a 3rd time (YAY!) yesterday - thank you Alison! <3

-You.!! Thank you for all of your love, kindness, comments, and smiles. You rock!

What are you thankful for?!

  10. Congrats on getting the sponsor for the walk! Darn I wish we lived closer so we could participate. Please send some of your motivation to work out my way please mam!

  11. It's always good to count our blessings!

  12. It is amazing what we can be thankful for when we take the time to think about. I needed the reminder today, thank you.

    Visiting from the friday hop.

    Visit when you get the chance.


  13. following from social parade. what an inspiring post!

  14. If everyone was as grateful and happy as you, we sure would be in a better place right now! I keep praying and hoping that everyone wakes up and appreciates what they have but it seems to go the opposite. So, I am trying a new tactic. Just keep plugging away on myself and hopefully the rest will follow suit. I am a new follower of your blog thru GFC. I did not see Facebook or Twitter or I would have followed those also. If I missed them somehow, let me know and I will come back. I would love a follow back on GFC when you get the chance. Thanks so much for your help and have a wonderful weekend! You deserve it!!


  15. Cami,
    I am thankful that we sold our house, my son got a new job, and for YOU! I really liked your post today...I needed that today too. Hey, I just did a post about my anniversary, and Cami, I was just your age when I got married. I think you might enjoy it. Have a lovely weekend, my sweet friend.
