30 Days of Gratitude: Day 4-11

It is hard for me to make an entire post everyday for the next thirty days, so I’m going to aim the rest of A Blossoming Homestead’s 30 Days of Gratitude to rolling a week’s worth of thanks and blessings into one post.  

This will save me some time, since our lives are a bit crazy for the next month.  Which I promise to spill all details sometime during December-January.

Day 4:  Today I am most thankful for my baby girl.  Today she spoke her first word, “Mama.”  Awww…her voice sounds beautiful.  
Day 5:  Today I am thankful for the beautiful spring weather we’ve had recently here in Texas.  
** “spring” was not a typo. **

Day 6:  Today I am thankful for answered prayers!  We had a last minute mini moving sale today, and when I say last minute, I really mean it.  We woke up, had breakfast, ran some errands, came home, grabbed stuff we weren’t going to take with us (mainly baby stuff) and threw it in our driveway.  We didn’t even price anything.   

But, no one was snatching up the baby stuff and I didn’t want to be stuck with it. So I posted a status on FB to pretty much say that I thought it was weird and then I swear to you, not even 30 mins later, a woman came and bought probably half of what we had. 


Then, of ALL THE PEOPLE, a pregnant girl comes walking down the road.  Her husband just started working for the church next door to us and she went for a walk, as she puts it, “to get the baby out.”
Whoa, right?! 
So I told her to take whatever she wanted.  

So then…we took what didn’t sale and threw it into the back of the car to drive to Good Will.  On our drive there, we get a phone call about the sparring gear (tae kwon do) that we’ve been trying to sale on Craigslist for a year now, that just happened to be in the car, on its way to GW.  

Bubba said that he only had Wednesday to meet up with him, and the guy said Wednesday was his only day to meet up.  They agreed on a time, and we got rid of the gear (finally) and made our money back.  Woo hoo! 

Then our son came home to tell us the cost of the new computer screen that he cracked at school will cost exactly how much we made from the sales.  Ha! Looks like the big guy in the sky knew exactly how much we were going to need all along. 🙂

Day 7:  Very thankful for the pretty leaves I saw today.  God is an artist.

Day 8:  Bubba’s grandmother passed away today.  We are thankful for the time we had with her and thankful for the family support during this sad time. 

Day 9:  Thankful for good music along with a long country drive.  Clears the mind and eases the stress. 

Day 10:  Thankful for babysitters–enough said. lol. 

Day 11:  I am thankful for baby pj’s.  They are just too cute.  I am also thankful for my awesome job as a stay at home mother.  Now I can witness all the small moments. 🙂  It’s cliche and cheesy, but it’s the truth.
