Thankful Thursday!




Today I am Thankful for:

Long soaks in the bathtub.

Laughter....Andrea had friends over last night and it was good to hear all the girls laughing and having fun...most of them will be leaving for college soon.

Radio that is playing in my kitchen

Books...I have read some really good ones this summer.

Dentist...especially Dr. Dreamy aka Dr. Thomas who performed a root canal for me on Monday.

Happy Gas...that the dentist gave me to calm me down. I hate to admit ...I am terrified of the denitst!

The dental assistant ...She was AWESOME..she could sense when I would get upset and calm me down.

Andrea

Joey ...he works so hard for our family.

I have experienced my share of dental disasters--so appreciate a good dentist too! And long soaks in the tub are the best way to relax post-dentist!

Love your list. Don't like visiting dentists, too, but I feel good after every visit, though. Laughing with friends is always a wonderful thankful feeling, especially if over ice cream!
Thanks for those sweet comments at my blog.

Carmen said...

I with you on fear of the dentist, but my teeth are sensitive and I invariably have to have extra anesthesia--yuckkkk!

Wow, so cool that so many children came to Christ. I often hear testimonies from adults who were saved in Sunday School or VBS. Now those children have something to be thankful for as well!

Praying for your job situation!

Have a peaceful weekend!

Kimberly said...

Wow...you were praising God for your dentist. Sigh. Not someone I ever look forward to seeing. I guess I need to work on that giving thanks for everything! :)

Your lists always remind me to stop and think of all I have to be thankful for! Thanks, Darlene!

And thank you for your sweet encouragement. You are a blessing!

Wonderful list... I love books! And prayer Warriors and answered prayers... those are very special. My mum is one - a prayer Warrior that is, and my life has been a bit smoother for that.

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog.
