thankful {4}

Some weeks this list is harder to make than others, 
I don't think it is a sign of having less or even discontentment.
It's more a symptom of how much I take for granted,
which is exactly why I want to be in the habit of listing the things I am thankful for.
168. An invitation from [new] church friends to a weeknight b-b-q.
It rained so we didn't go, but it's the thought that counts, right?

169. Date night to our favorite Mexican restaurant.

170. A letter in the mail from our sponsored Compassion child.
I love that she always draws a picture!

171. All the fresh fruits & veggies that have found their way 
into our meals lately.

172. Frugal finds at Target & the thrift store.

173. Listening to the rain a few nights in the past week.
I love a good storm!

what are you grateful for this week?
