30 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 19

Can I be thankful for more than one thing today?  Or am I limited to choosing just one?  Because today, I'm feeling blessed.

Today I am thankful for a husband who's not afraid to get his hands dirty.  Because, yeah, a plumber would have probably cost a lot more than the $35 it cost to rent the snake and push...whatever it was...out to the street.

Today I am thankful for my in-laws, who one weekend a month have been taking my kids and giving me a much MUCH needed break.  Since the hubs is in school and working full time, this mama is on call 24/7 with no relief, ever.  I don't know how single moms do it.  It's stressful!  But this weekend is "Mammaw's House Weekend."  It turns out that we get one whole day kid-free.  I appreciate that more than you guys will ever know!

Today I am thankful for 3 healthy babies.  I was blessed to enjoy a baby shower for a friend this morning.  It's fun to welcome new little ones, and to reminded of the blessings you have in your own!

Today I'm thankful for a night with no interruptions, and being able to sleep in ALL the way until 8am!  Wow!  9 hours.  Straight.  I'm a new woman!

I could go on.  I think I'll save the rest for later.

Dear Lord, thank you for so very many blessings!  You're faithful to keep on heaping and heaping and heaping, even though I am not always faithful to look for your blessings.  Open my eyes to what you have for me!  Thank you so much for always being faithful. Your provisions are astounding!

My in-laws are wonderful as well. They're both retired, and the two times I'm scheduled to work at the hospital during the month, they make a five hour trek down to stay with my daughter, allowing my husband to work at his job or on his dissertation.
