I'm so thankful to have the income tax preparations finished today!!!  I hate that job!

I'm also thankful for the completion of some other paperwork chores. Paperwork is not my favorite thing, tax-wise or other-wise.  Give me a sink full of dirty dishes or some laundry to do any day...even bathroom cleaning!

But in terms of household chores, I am so thankful for the strength and energy to do some heavy duty spring cleaning.  I like the way God allows me to get lost in physical labor and think and pray in a way that satisfies my soul.

And I can't forget to mention how very thankful I am for the lovely, lovely spring we are having!  Today is a little cooler but for a person whose maximum desirable temperature is 72 degrees, lower 50's are just fine. Invigorating, in fact.

What are you thanking our gracious God for?  Please share!

Tell you what---I'll do your paperwork and you can clean my bathrooms. Deal?

And 72 is my perfect temperature!

I'd much rather do cleaning than paper work, too!

Any day, Rosemary! Any day!

I'm willing to go to 80 and limit the lower temperature to 55 or 60.

I don't mind bathrooms and most paperwork is ok with me although I faint at the thought of taxes. I'm thankful my husband does them!

I finished my taxes, too. So glad that's over.
