Thursday Thirteen Already!!

Thirteen Things Ruth Is Thankful For

1. I am thankful for the family that I have. We have been through lots and stick together real tight!!

2. I am thankful that I hve the opportunity to work at a temporary job and bring some money into the house.

3. I am thankful that I don't have to have a job outside the house. Dh has always worked whatever necessary (sometimes 3 jobs) so I can stay home with the kids.

4. I am thankful for the church family that I have. They are absolutely the best people around!! Whatever our situation is at the time, they are there to help out and to help us stand firm.

5. I am thankful for the house that we have. It is not the biggest, or the prettiest, but it is definately a roof over our head.

6. I am thankful that my kids aren't afraid of work. They are more than happy to help out around here and love to take on new responsibilities.

7. I am thankful that I have access to a computer with internet. What on earth would I do without it???

8. I am thankful for the friends that I have. I don't necessarily make friends very easy, so the ones that I do have are real good!!

9. I am thankful that we always seem to have food in our house. Whether it comes from a store or from neighbours...which has happened a lot more than I would have ever thought!!

10. I am thankful that my kids have good friends and that they are learning to make the right choices.

11. I am thankful that my parents are around a lot to help out with watching the kids or taking them to their programs etc... I have been told that I am spoiled with them here. I know I am and I love it!!

12. I am thankful for the lessons that I loearn from others, in person or in the blogosphere!! I really am looking forward to the young adult years with my kids and have gleaned a lot of information from friends and bloggers that I know we will have a great time! (and I was the one who said that I would never learn from others mistakes or right choices, had to do it all myself first!!)

13. I am thankful that I remembered it was Thursday before midnight!!
