Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for Ina's blanket(s)

They help soothe her in any situation.  We are totally going to be the family carrying around a tattered, dirty blanket when it is 104 degrees outside at the zoo, but I have accepted that fact. 

(That picture reminds me I am also thankful for baby bellies, baby giggles, and baby kisses.  Ugh, I love that girl.)

Today I am thankful for my jobs.  Dan's work situation is still up in the air, even though we thought he was going back to work, it isn't looking likely now due to his restrictions.  While we are trying to find a solution, I am thankful that I have jobs that give me the ability to (hopefully temporarily) financially support our family solo. 

Today I am thankful for shelter.  I know that seems pretty obvious, but yesterday I was sitting in my dry office, drinking a warm cup of coffee, watching the cold rain fall out the window.  In that big building I felt weirdly protected and happy not to be sitting in the rain.  

Today I am thankful for the women in my small group.   Even though we are a new group, those ladies offer support like we have been friends for years.  

Today I am thankful for my treadmill in the basement.  As it gets colder outside we are going to become really good friends again.

What are you thankful for?

Running with Racheal

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Just found your blog through the #Elf4Health challenge. Love it! Linking up :)

  2. Hi Racheal, been reading your blog for a while all the way in Switzerland. I hope Dan's job situation takes a good turn, we just went through a similar thing these past weeks. It can be challenging, have faith that it will all turn out well and it probably will. Love your blog, very inspring. Evelyne

    1. Hi Evelyne! Thank you so much for commenting! Wow, all the way in Switzerland! How awesome! Thank you so much for reading and for our encouragement. If you saw today, things are turning out better. Have a great weekend!

  3. Thinking of you guys! It helps to think what you are thankful for. I am thankful that although I feel like it's been a rough year, my friends and family still are around and safe, happy and healthy.

    1. Thanks Carrie! That is a wonderful thing to be thankful for. :)

  4. Treadmill it up! :)

    Today I'm thankful for lots of caffeine- it's been a draining week, ha!

    Hope you're having a good Thursday!


    1. Yay for treadmills! There is no such thing as too much caffeine! Hope you get in a relaxing weekend. :)
