Being Thankful and "Me an Award?"

Sometimes I find that I get caught up in the things I want, the things that aren't going my way, and the things I wish I could do... I often need a little kick in the buns to remember the many blessings I do have, and so I am starting "TOTALLY THANKFUL THURSDAY" this will be the top 5 things that I am thankful for, from the huge to the tiny...and everywhere in between. The rule for myself is it has to be what I think of when I turn on the computer, I can't be thinking of it before hand... only spur of the moment. Join along if you'd like.
1. I am not thankful for the pinkeye my little Ashie has, but I am thankful that I was able to get an appointment with the doctor at 9:10 this morning and get her started on a prescription.
2. I am thankful for the few little tulip bulbs I see peeking up through the dirt in my flower bed.
3. I am thankful for the heater I can turn up while my Husband is at work...just to take the chill from my toes.
4. I am thankful for cute earrings(silly I know, but it came to my head). They can cheer you up, especially big wild ones that you might feel a little self-concious wearing because you're not 16 anymore.
5. Toilet paper...I just had to leave my computer because my two older daughters just spilled an entire bottle of finger nail polish remover on the bathroom counter... luckily they mopped most of it up with toilet paper before it hit the tile and the rugs.
Happy Thursday!!!

OMG!! Thank you so much for the award. I'm sad to say my blog hasn't had much the past several weeks.

I enjoyed looking at your blog. Your bows are amazing, I'm going to blog about them. They are too cute!! Too bad I don't have any girls.

A boy I teach in church had pinkeye and was touching my baby all over before I realized he had it...I almost had a heart attack! I took my baby into the bathroom immediately and pretty much gave her a head to toe bath...good thing cause she never caught it! And yes, the nail polish thing is a common thing in a house of girls...
