Thankful Thursday

It's Thankful Thursday again and I have so much to be thankful for.  Feel free to share what you are thankful for with me and then link up with our host for this month, Laurie at Women Taking A Stand!

Today I am thankful for my cup being filled!  I have so much.  My cup is filled with the love of my family.  We are sometimes so busy that our paths cross only for an hour or two at a time.  This week was one of those weeks.  Hubby is almost done with his night shift, but it has put a dent in our time together as a family.  On top of that we have all been struggling with our allergies and sinuses.  This makes us all a little cranky and tired.  Which means more arguing and feelings being hurt.   But, we made it through all of that and still love each other. 

Winter is moving in on us hard today.  This weeks temperatures droped dramatically from 70 to 30 in an hour.  Since our weather has rivaled that of the northern states.  People in the south are freaking out and acting like the world has turned upside down.  I say....so what?....The Lord has gotten us through hurricanes, what's a little cold weather and freezing rain.  I have seen the promise of warmer weather to come though.  Last year I planted a white hyacinth, two yellow daffodils, and a red tulip all in one pot. After spring moved on I placed the pot with the bulbs outside.  Last week Will noticed that the hyacinth was coming up.  What a beautiful site it was.  When I found out about the freezing weather coming our way I cleaned up the pot and brought it in the house.  Now it sits on my dinning room table and reminds us all that Spring will come again!  Again my cup is filled!  Filled with hope for warmer weather and beautiful flowers.  Times when we can set up the pool, have a bar-b-q in the yard, and wish for a cool breeze in the hot Louisiana heat. LOL!

I spend a little time with may Dad yesterday, which adds to my cup! My Dad is one of my most favorite people in the world.  Add that with the time we spent with a few friends this week, and a few more we will most likely see this weekend, and I think we end up with a cup that is overflowing!  Praise the Good Lord for a cup that is overflowing! 

So, what is filling up your cup this week?

  4. What is filling up my cup?

    Knowing I have a husband who loves me and understands my issues.

    Knowing that those great friends and my favorite lil man will be coming this weekend(weather approving).

    That my daughters love their mother unconditionally.
    That the loves of God,family, and friends can get you through anything.
