Thankful Thursday

"Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever." ~ Psalm 107:1

This week I am thankful for:

~ Our family pictures! Our computer crashed last year before we had time to back up all of our digital pictures. Thankfully we found a little shop that was able to revive our computer enough to get our photos (all of Emily's baby photos were on it) and important documents onto a disk for us to transfer to our new computer. The photo to the left is one of my favorite of Stew and Emily at Easter, a few weeks after she was born.

~Great friends! I definitely had a melt down potty training my daughter a few days ago. My friends came to the rescue with some great ideas and even websites to check out. They were so encouraging and so helpful! It was nice to know that I am not alone in the battle to potty train.

~ My husband, my best friend. He has been so attentive to my needs throughout this whole pregnancy. He does so many small things for me every day to pick me up and keep my spirits lifted. Whenever I'm down he is always there to encourage me and praise my efforts.

~ The mercies of our Lord! I am so thankful that his mercies are new every morning. He must get so frustrated with me sometimes. I think to disciplining my toddler and how some days I just want to bang my head on the wall and scream 'why can't you just obey!'. I am so thankful that I have a patient heavenly father who doesn't keep record of my wrongs.
