Thankful Thursday

"Those blessings are sweetest that are won with prayer and worn with thanks."
~Thomas Goodwin

Happy Thankful Thursday! Sorry that I have been missing in action around these parts. I'm in my hometown visiting with family as well as delivering and making custom orders for Moo's Closet.

This week I am thankful for family. With this month being the third anniversary of my Ma's (my aunt who helped raise me) death, family has been really heavy on my mind. I realize that my aunts and my great cousins are really up there in age now. I want to make sure that my kids have some memory of those family members who have helped to shape me into the woman I am today.

I am thankful for strength. Sometimes, I look back at some of the things I have overcome and went through. All I can say is thanks be to God for giving me the strength to have made it through because without I surely would have given in to the desire to crumple up in a dark corner somewhere. I'm definitely not a fighter by nature but I'm learning to be one when I need to be.

I am thankful for my faith. It's kept me sane and hopefully many nights these past few weeks. I know without a doubt that I am blessed.

What are you thankful for?


  1. Sending hugs and prayers your way; I'm glad you're getting the opportunity to be with family and that your children will get to know and love the ones who mean so much to you.

    I'm thankful today for opportunities, strength, faith, patience, grace, mercy, love, and understanding. *whew*

    1. Thanks! The hugs and prayers are definitely appreciated.

  2. Sorry to hear that about your Mommy/Aunt but may her memories live on! I do Thrifty Thursday but I gotta start linking up with you on this. Today, I was just unexpectantly happy for some reason! I'm completely HAPPY & in a HAPPY PLACE in my life... :-)


    1. I'm looking forward to getting back to my Happy Place for sure. By all means link up!
