Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for...

-friends. I feel as if I just suddenly woke up and was surrounded by a tremendous number of friends. Friends who understand me. Friends who have time to hang out. Friends who have familiar views. Friends who need friends and make friendships an important part of their lives. Friends who had sorta disappeared for a while but who have come back and are being welcomed with open arms.

-validation for my educational philosophies. I love seeing my son learn to read, write, cut, draw... all without being instructed or "taught" to do them.

-the ability to bend over. There has been progress with the healing of my back. Now, when I bend over, I can stand up without having to walk my hands up my leg. I occasionally still feel a little stiff or a twinge here and there but in general, I am so much much much improved!

-and of course, last but certainly not least, salvation.

For what are you most thankful today?
