Dates, Doughnuts, Dishes... {Thankful Thursday}

Did you know, dears, it's Thursday?

The day of the week when I take special note of the blessings that God has heaped on me... well, special note of some of the blessings I actually notice.

I'm thankful for...
Dates with my husband--we went out for Mexican on Monday!

Doughnuts--a treat he brought home today.

Dishes in the sink--we've eaten.  We have food, we have plates to eat it on, we are provided for.  And I'm thankful for the help my husband gives me with them!

Darkness--the time of day when we calm our minds and bodies, and rest in preparation for the next day.

Dedication--my husband is so evidently dedicated to me, to his work, to our future.

Daughterhood--I am so thankful for my parents and my parents-in-law.  Such blessings!

Dad--my earthly father, and my heavenly Father.  I have the best Daddy ever (for SO many reasons!), and it is only by His incredible grace that I can call God Father as well.

Dairy products--I love milk.  And cheese (of all kinds), yogurt, ice cream... A friend brought us cheese from Wisconsin yesterday, and I appreciate it so much!


What about you?  What are you thankful for today--and can you think of something that begins with "D"?

  1. Wonderful D words, doughnuts made my mouth water, sad to say I didn't know my dad as I was only three when he passed away,
    Look forward to what E brings tomorrow.
