I Have the Joy

Thankfulness and joy continued! This is the continuing saga of Mama’s thankfulness journal.  So here goes – I am SO thankful for:

  • no more radiation treatments – yep, I am finished with them and oh, so glad.  I am also thankful I did not have any major side effects other than being really, really tired, but that I can cope with, so yay, thank you, Lord!
  • the love of my family – my family is the greatest in the world and I love them to pieces.  That includes my hubby, kiddos, daddy and my sisters, and not to forget — my family in Christ.
  • surprise packages that come by lil’ brown UPS trucks.  “What can brown do for you?” They can keep bringing me surprise packages like yesterday!
  • the most lovely and sweet co-workers.
  • being able to spend one on one time with my 86-year-old daddy, who never ceases to amaze me and make me laugh.
  • a new Bible study on love and respect – this one’s going to be awesome.
  • Dairy Queen chicken strip salads – tasty for lunch when you forgot to pack one!
  • Sports medicine doctors because hopefully, they are going to fix daughter’ #2’s aching head from her concussion – those dang soccer balls!
  • restful good nights of sleep, especially when there is nice cool air coming in the windows.
  • protection from the most dramatic wild stormy night last night – lightning and thunder practically knocking us all out of our beds!
  • getting back to normal, which for me is being goofy, crazy and happy, AND actually feeling cold sometimes!
  • not living in hurricane alley, or tornado alley, or earthquake land.  Been there, done that except for the hurricanes.
  • changes of season – I’m ready for fall because it is my favorite!
  • enough food to eat, clean water to drink, and a home to welcome people into — oh yes, AND a car that will get me up my snowy, drifted driveway in the winter time!

So WOW… so very much to be thankful for and yes, consider it all joy!

I’m thankful that you finally updated your blog. 🙂 You got a surprise package? That’s fun! Although I personally think Fedex is better! 😉 —sunflower

Ha, I’ll tell him to get right on that. But don’t they have a cute puppy on their delivery trucks? That more than makes up for not having a catchy slogan, I think. —sunflower

Their slogan is “The world on time.” I saw it on a FedEx truck this morning. —  sunflower


So...what do you think? Tell me. I appreciate your feedback and read each comment. Thank you!
