Thankful Thursday

It was 49 sunny degrees here in Crystal Lake this afternoon! And it wasn't even windy! So Murphy and I set out for a nice long walk. An hour later, he is now sleeping in his little bed and I'm enjoying a nice hot cup of tea. I'm thanking God for this lovely weather and the fun walk with Murphy but maybe I'm even a little bit more thankful to have this peaceful moment right now. A one year old puppy is a lot different from a senior citizen canine.

I'm also thankful for God's provision of everything we really need and a few extra things as well.

And finally, much as I enjoyed the celebration of Christmas and extra time with my family, I am also thankful for the return to a routine. I know I'm a little boring that way but I really do better with a regular routine for my life. How about you?
