One Little Word | Thankful #6

Checking The Weather

I feel like I’ve spent most of the weekend in church (or planning for church services). It really is a bit much when there is a service both Saturday and Sunday and when the week was so filled with events as it was,as well. Sometimes I get a little tired, to be honest, but still (and thankfully) there is many things to be grateful for on this day too (Sunday). Although we did not get to home cook  a fancy dinner together, at least we spent the Sunday together as a family. And MT was happy to have a quiet day where he could draw some more awesome drawings – I am so thankful for his love of drawing! – and be outside playing some football (soccer).

First a little note on the prompts and the way I use them:
The last few days I’ve stayed a bit off of Katerina’s prompt for the day, but I’m seriously inspired by them and like to use them as my starting point as I get her newsletter in the mail each morning. And if you haven’t seen her newsletter (it’s all renewed for this moth! Love it.) – you should take a look at the issue for Sunday here.

This Sunday I want to use the prompt from Saturday; a word I am thankful for.

I am thankful for my one little word of the year: FAITH.

Thankful For My One Little Word | Nov. 6-2011

I am thankful for the way it have made my belief in God, in my self and in others a priority in my life. I am thankful for the way it has pushed me to try and make a difference, daring to take chances I would not have taken before. I’m still going baby steps, but I am moving closer to the me I want to be and the life I want to live. One little word really do matter.

What are you thankful for today?

Family | Thankful #5

Mr. Funny Face

This weekend is mostly work for me, so it was so nice that MT could spend some hours at his uncle and aunt’s place instead of tagging along with me.

We had a special remembrance service at church where we invited the families, that had lost a dear one the last year, to come and be together for an hour of song, prayers, lighting of candles and hope. It was a good service, but not something MT would have had so much use for. He was better off playing with his cousins.

When I got to their house to pick him up and stepped out of the car I looked down on my phone only to find a message from my brother:

Are you coming soon? Dinner is ready!

It was such a sweet and nice surprise. Tasty as well. Thank you so much guys!!

November Light | Thankful #4

Thankfulf For November Light

I am tired and should have been in bed an hour ago. But, hey, I have to get my thankful stuff down before I forget!

Today I am thankful for the LIGHT of November.
It fades just too fast in the afternoon, but before that – I love it! I’ve been watching it all day while working and when I had a few minutes to grab my camera I took a little tour of the garden. Look:

I am also Thankful, and quite a bit proud, of MT for being such a lover of books and reading. Mostly he loves to be read too (usually we read before he goes to bed), but he also can be found reading by himself. Today we took some extra time in the evening and finished the second book about Harry Potter. I have read them a few times already, but this is MT’s first round of the books. He loves them and can hardly wait to see the movie (since his momma demands that he read the book first, so he can make his own in-head-movie before he sees what others have dreamed up).
