Its been a while since I’ve added to my list on here.  In fact, I haven’t posted a whole lot the last few weeks.  Constant sickness and traveling have taken its toll.  As my emotions threaten to overtake my joy, I realized my public list must begin again. For truly living out and speaking thanksgiving is the beginning of all true joy.

151: Air conditioning.  Ours broke last week, and it is amazing how grouchy one can get when the house is in the 90’s!  So thankful it was easily fixed, and we can afford to run our air conditioning!

152: Helpful friends who have walked before me on this whole homeschool journey.

153: The Center for Home Education who supported me, showed me all the various curriculum I would need, and enabled me to buy most of the stuff I needed for Avery for under $40!

154: A clean shower

155: A fixed hole in the drywall

156: The ability to call a doctor and see one when I get sick

157: Good probiotics

158: Sweet kisses and hugs from my kids

159: Living within walking distance of the store

160: Finished laundry

161: A great friend that I can cry with, laugh with, pray with, rejoice with, and mourn with.  These friendships are hard to find.

162: A God who is trustworthy

163: The truth spoken through the scripture that can penetrate my heart and change me

164: Worshiping under my husband’s leadership on Sunday mornings.  I feel incredible lucky to worship under such a gifted man.

165: The joy that a simple fort in the family room can bring.  The hours of uninterrupted play have been much needed as I battle some stomach issues.

166: Writing out goals for next school year

167:  Grocery shopping as a family

168: Making cookies with the kids

169: Swimming in the heat

170:  My family

    Love your lists! Every time I come across a blog where someone does that I keep telling myself that I’m going to get a journal and do the same, but time keeps slipping away from me! I must say that we feel incredibly lucky to have your husband lead us every Sunday as well. We will be gone the next three weeks and will really miss that! We will be driving to Florida and South Carolina and back with a 6,5 and almost 2 year old, yikes! Praying for patience for all of us already!
