Thankfulness on a Dreary Day

Today as we spent the day inside while a cold rain fell outside, I took some extra time to be thankful for what I saw.

~thankful that the children enjoy books - both to "read" on their own and their never ending requests to be read to~

What are you thankful for today?
Warm wishes,


  1. Looks cozy! I am thankful for the rare Sunshine and warm weather we have had, I even had the windows open! I know the rain will soon come, and will stay until May soon, So I am feeling very thankful for the sun.

  2. I am feeling under the weather today, and I am thankful that my husband went out for me this evening and did all the grocery shopping so I could stay at home.

  3. I am thankful we are feeling better after all of us getting colds. I am also thankful for my wonderful husband who cut all the wood that keeps so warm during these wet and cold (snow day!) days. Blessings.

  4. I am ever thankful for my dear husband...esp today, on our anniversary:):)

  5. Tonya, It is so good to be thankful, isn't it? And I feel I have so very much to be thankful for. Let's see, the top of my mind right in this moment is that I am thankful for my three peacefully sleeping and healthy children. Always.

  6. I'm thankful that I decided to try one more time to fix the telescope my husband gave me for Christmas the first year we were married...and now it works! I don't know what I did, but I'm so excited to be able to share that with my kids. Sometimes it pays to hang onto things that don't work, even if it seems silly to move them.

  7. Just stopping by again.. thanks for your comment on my blog "Christian Homestead". I decided to change my blog to better fit our family... so it is now at a new address. Sorry about the confusion. I would love for you to stop by again!

  8. How wonderful of a post! Your children are great blessings to be thankful for! I thank the Lord everyday for my flock of blessings (and of course I pray for more!)!! I am thankful for my family and the upcoming new fmily member about to arrive in a couple of weeks!


  9. Good morning Tonya

    I have enjoyed reading through your posts this morning. I just love the halloween costumes. Oh I just love children~! Each one of mine came up with a different outfit too. Thank you for the book review. Happy knitting in your little spot. I retreat to mine now and again too. I am most thankful to be on a journey of constant learning and growing with my family. I would not like to do all this alone..

    Love to you
