Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for:

~feta cheese on my salad. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

~that my girl is still young enough that building a fire in the fire pit on a cool April evening and cooking burgers for dinner over the open flames is a "cool" thing to do!

~ that in this economy Thomas still has a job that allows me to stay at home with my kids.

~ that my 85-year-old Mom is still spry and active and happy!

~ that I can read blogs like this one, Life's Funny Like That, where the blogger is willing to share this kind of ordeal with her readers. Reading her entries helps me to keep things in my life in perspective.

So happy to read that about your Mom. I still find really peaceful, mundane stuff cool too. Glad Eler Beth isn't "bored" with things like that.
I'm grateful I got a consulting job, however small, so I can do what I am good at rather than join some typing pool or take a job I dislike :-). ~Mary

I hope Eler Beth continues to enjoy such simple pleasures. I believe we've discussed before how curiosity has served us well over the years, and how we never have to worry about being bored! Good for you and Thomas for passing that along to the kids. It's a rare and special quality.

Hugs, Beth

Great list! How old was Eler Beth when you started this tradition? WE have a fire pit of sorts. I remember being about 10 and learning how to make a fire.
