Thankful Thursdays

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe (Hebrews 12:28 NIV )

Last year, during the month of November I challenged my Facebook friends to post something they were thankful for every day for the entire month. Most of my friends really enjoyed doing this, but some struggled to come up with something on a daily basis. I think we all get so caught up in living our lives that we neglect to appreciate all the amazing things we have and experience every day.

A couple months ago I came across a blog that had  a Thankful Thursday post and I thought it was a super idea. I wish I would have bookmarked the blog so I could give proper kudos to whoever it was for the idea I am now borrowing. Every Thursday that I can get my act together to write a sentence, I will post a thankful blog. I encourage you to post what blessings come to mind for you in the comments section below.

On this first Walking the Walk Thankful Thursday, I am thankful for my son, Cameron. He broke his arm on Monday and he has been such a trooper. He has not complained even once, not about pain or missing school or trying to manage with one functioning hand. He is happy he gets more time to read.

Along the same line I am very thankful for Dr. Bryce Robison and his staff who got us in right away and took care of Cameron's initial assessments over what should have been their lunch hour. Their kindness and compassion were much appreciated by a scared little boy and his Mom.

As Madame Blueberry said in VeggieTales "A thankful heart is a happy heart".  What tops your thankful list for today?
