Thursday is almost over in Asia, and I find myself still needing to stop and offer words of genuine thankfulness.
I am thankful:
that the back and leg pain I was experiencing earlier in the week is mostly gone.
for this past Sunday spent worshiping with two other ex-pat families, sharing the traditional New Year's day meal - jiǎozi 饺子 (Chinese dumplings), and watching "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" (it was Valentine's Day after all).
that we live in a country where teenage boys can legally use potato canons to send fireworks soaring miles high to burst in brilliant color against the dark night sky.
that I actually won a "One World One Heart" giveaway. Geni from Loose Ends is mailing me a wonderful gift of hand-dyed cloth and other material & dainty accessories. How fun!
that it's been quite some time since we've experienced a serious autism melt-down.
for teenage sons that are willing to give their time, attention, and energy to playing with young children.
for a sense of humor, when I have one :) .
for a warm comforter on a cold day.
for my husband's homemade chili.
for a cute, faithful poodle.
Thankful Thursday is hosted by Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses.
