Aloha Friday #109

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

What are you thankful for?

Well, besides some of the obvious blessings like my family, our health, and a job I love (which I’m returning back to in January) I’m also thankful for our baby swing. I’m not kidding! Sometimes it’s the only way I can get Kaila to sleep!

    Yes, this technically falls under “family”, but I’m thankful that my mother is alright. She fell out of her attic a couple days ago, hit the step on her head and skidded across the concrete. She has a couple of broken fingers, a torn up ear and scratched up face. All things considered, she’s very lucky. It could have wound up a *LOT* worse. So I’m thankful that she was as lucky as she was when she fell.

    I am thankful for my mother in law taking my family out to eat once a week! I treasure those times with her. Not only does it get me out of the house but I get some yummy food and talking to her is always healing for me! I love my mother in law!! YAY!

    Lots of things, but today I am thankful for my husband doing the dishes! I so did not want to do them. I think he noticed after the three day pile up and I still hadn’t touched them. The BEST part was – he didn’t even talk smack about it – he just did it. That NEVER happens! :)

    I have taught a Bible study to MOMS for the last 20 years. I have done 2 Bible study semesters a year, bringing the count to 40 studies. I have been writing my own material and began publishing them a few years ago. Today was my 20th anniversary. I am actually teaching daughters of women I have already taught! I am so thankful to be able to see young moms excited to study God’s Word and train up their children in the way they should go!!
