I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
~ Psalm 57:9 (ESV)
Several weeks ago I mentioned how grateful I am for the weekly calls with my mom. They always lift my spirit. There is one thing that is more exciting than the weekly calls; the times I get a care package from home.
I get them three times a year: Easter, Christmas and my birthday 🙂 . This year for my birthday I requested some “Erdnussflips”. Oh, they are so yummy. I am rationing them to myself, because I could eat a bag in one sitting. I think for Christmas I would like 4 bags (pretty please, mom).
I am thankful that my mom takes time selecting things that bring a smile to me face (like the birthday card “from the heart”). Oh, my heart so longs to stroll down-town Hannover with my mom next to me. Although I could not make it this year, my mom and I are planning to fly me out in Spring of 2011 – YEAH!
What are you thankful for this week? Please share with us by leaving your link to your Thankful Thursday post below. I will be hosting one more time this month; in October we are meeting over at my friend Lynn’s blog “Spiritually Unequal Marriage“; my friend Laurie will be hosting in November at “Women Taking a Stand“.
One more thing before I ‘sign-off’ today: check out this week’s giveaway.
Thank you for stopping by today. Remember: little care packages or notes can cheer up a friend 🙂 …
