Thankful Thursday

Let the word of Christ dwell in your richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
Colossians 3:16

This week I am thankful...

* I am thankful that we finally found a baby gate that works for our stairs! I've been so frustrated trying to keep my 1-yr old off the stairs but he's very persistent, and it's made some looong days. But we finally have our problem solved and I am so happy!

* I am thankful for the nice weather we've had this week and getting out in the baby pool.

* I am thankful for a day getting to walk with a lady from the stroller group I was in.

* I am thankful our friends Stew and Amy made it back safely from their vacation. We missed them. And today we find out if their baby is a boy or a girl!

* I am thankful for church softball. Since we don't know a lot of people in the area, softball is the one real time in the week we actually get to see and fellowship with friends. And I'm thankful for Hubby who plays even though softball's not really his thing.

* I am thankful that eating gravel is apparently not too awful for a 1-yr old to eat, as it appears he's still okay! (had a couple incidents at the games this week)

* I am thankful for Hubby-- he's been working hard to prepare a small deck for our place (it's just planning stage right now but we're excited); he knows when I'm maxed out with Eli and will take him for me; he has the creativity to make our baby gate work for our stairs; he always cleans up dinner after I've cooked, and I know what a real mess it can be!

What are you thankful for today? For more Thankful Thursday posts, visit Sting My Heart!

Blessings on you and I'm glad you found that gate. Our 2nd born son learned how to take apart the gate. He's always been a curious take apart kind of guy! :)

Wonderful list! I am thankful with you, I missed coming by here this week! You blessed me with your post. (I had a "stair climbing grandson" that loved the idea of doing something he shouldn't--so I sympathize with all you've done to keep the little one away from the stairs!)
Be blessed!

I love that you are thankful for the gravel! :) That's hilarious. Glad to hear you found a baby gate that you love - I have had lots of friends go through so many to try and find the one that works well - safety 1st! :) Have a great weekend!

Those two words -- baby gate -- took me back many years! I remember the days of schlepping that thing around in the trunk to put up at other folks' houses. I remember being so relieved when we finally to the point that I could leave the house with just my purse. No more diaper bag, cheerios, etc. Now I see "baby gate" and miss all that! :-(

Drop by the newly resdesigned and greatly improved "On the Horizon" to see my list! :-)
