Thankful Friday

I know it is typically Thankful Thursday, but I just didn't have time to get on the computer yesterday to do a blog post.      So I am breaking the "rules".     My heart has been full of thanksgiving and I didn't want to miss an opportunity to praise my God.

* First, I am so glad that we are doing Lent this year as a family.    It has definitely helped me keep focused.    Some situations in our life that would have possibly overwhelmed me have really not gotten to me and I believe it is because of the fact of our focus on Easter.    

* Last week I had to take my computer in to be repaired.    It froze up and quit working completely.    I have had this laptop for about 6 years which is a LONG life for a laptop.    I was afraid that this was the end.      My computer guy, who I cannot say enough good things about, worked on it for 5 DAYS!    He found a terrible virus that had attacked my anti-virus software.     We still can't figure out how it accessed my computer since this things normally access through Internet Explorer and I don't use IE.     Anyway, when I went to pick up my computer I was completely shocked when he did not charge me one dollar.      I cannot tell you what a financial blessing this was for us.

* A friend of mine posted that she was needing some help with her business.     The times she posted were perfect.    I contacted her and we were both in awe of God's goodness.     We have been trying to pay off some hospital bills and my grocery budget is soooo tight that I had been praying for a way to be able to have a little extra money to supplement our finances.     So from 10:00 - 2:00 on Tuesday - Thursday you can find me at The Play Place in Ridgeland.    A GREAT place to bring your kids to play!

*  Tonight I get to have a Girl's Night Out.     A group of us are going to supper and then to "Easely Amused" to paint.    I can't wait.    Girls, giggles and fun!

*  Today is the last day of school before Spring Break begins.     An entire week of spending time with my sweet boys.   Does it get any better than that?!?   Yahoo!

Have a great weekend!
