Thankful Thursdays Top Ten #81

I am thankful this week for many things!

1. Getting to sleep in yesterday while my husband got up with the girlies.  And he got up at 6am with a terrible diaper so I'm extra thankful for his patience :)

2. Peace in knowing that God is in control, even when it doesn't feel like it, even when I forget, He is there and gently reminds me.

3. Shopkick.  I know, this is a crazy one, thankful for an app?  But I am going to get to use quite a bit of "free money" to pay for Christmas presents which will seriously help the budget this year.  I'm excited to see if I can cover 100% of Christmas gifts next year!

4. Simplicity.  I am thankful that my sister and I decided that instead of exchanging gifts for the sake of exchanging gifts between us and our husbands we'd both just buy our parents an extra gift each!  I LOVE IT!

5. Faithful Grandparents.  Two of my grandparents are not doing well at the moment and while I want to hold on to them as long as I can, I also know that they love the Lord so it is well with my soul.  Surprisingly enough, it is well with their souls too.  I hope when I'm older I have such faith and peace.

6. Monopoly Deal.  Ok, the game was fun but I'm really thankful that Miss Morgan was able to come over and hang out with me!  I MISS HER SOMETHING FIERCE when she is away at college.  And now this talk of moving...don't even get me started.

7. Applesauce.  That's right, it was annual applesauce time.  I made 35 quarts.  Well, 36 but one exploded.  I'll give away 30 and keep 6 for my family.

8. Date night.  I seriously love date night.  I especially love date nights that include That Crepe Place because bananas, nutella, vanilla spread and peanuts in a crepe are DELICIOUS!

9. My girlies.  I am so thankful for my girls.  For the hard parenting lessons, quiet moments and loudness of it all.  I'm thankful that I am learning and growing just by being their mom! 

10. Friends!  I'm thankful for friends who make it 'easy'.  I love texting friends that I don't get to chat with often about the joys and pains of motherhood!  We all need good friends!
