Thankful Thursday | A Weekly List of Gratitude

Happy Thankful Thursday!!  So, I’m just realizing that I haven’t share our big news on the blog yet.  If you’ve subscribed to my newsletter, then you already know what our big news is.  Can you guess what it is?  I’ll give you hint it’s NOT a baby.   Keep reading to find out.

What I Am Thankful For This Week

Snow |  In my newsletter last week I mentioned how the weather man was calling for snow.  Yes, snow in March in the South.  Anyways, I was very skeptical that we would get it because the day announced that we might get snow it was almost 75℉ out.  It was perfect sandal weather.  Surely we weren’t getting snow.  Nothing happened on Saturday, but when we woke Sunday morning, it was a winter wonderland outside our window.
Of course being the snow lover that I am, I was thankful that Mother Nature proved me wrong.  Our snow didn’t last long, but I’m grateful we got to go out on a little snow walk and enjoy it while it lasted.  Also, I’m thankful that the schools didn’t have to take a snow day.  Don’t need to the district trying to cut into Moo’s Spring Break vacation.
Mommy & Us Movie Dates |  We got to screen The Boss Baby this past Saturday.  I’m thankful that I got watch it with the kids because they had a blast.  While I have to hold my official review until Monday, I will say that this movie gave us all a few reminders/things to think about when it comes to family additions.  The kids loved it and they got to hang out at their favorite wishing fountain afterwards!

House Hunting |  Now for our BIG news . . . we’re moving!  Our house hunt is over.  Earlier this month our family put in an offer on a house.   I’m beyond excited and thankful to say that our offer was accepted.  Now, we’re negotiating repairs and waiting for closing day to get here.
I was nervous taking the kids to see it before having our offer accepted because I didn’t want to get their hopes up.  They absolutely loved the house and are thrilled to be getting their own rooms.  I’m excited to decorate my new master bedroom and bath along with the rest of the house.  I’ve already hunting for accessories at Target because we’re obsessed with that place.
Jeremiah 29:11-12 |  Going back to waiting on closing day and negotiating repairs with the sellers, I was feeling a bit stressed/borderline anxious the other day.  I had so many thoughts running through my head.  What if they decide not to make the important repair we’re not willing to budge on?  Can I really walk away from this house after getting the kids’ (and mine own) hopes up about it?
I had to go back and meditate on Jeremiah 29:11-12 and remind myself that there is already a plan for my life.  That plan includes where my family and I will live.  If this house is not meant for us, then I have to trust that God has something better in store for us.  However, since I really want this house to be for us it doesn’t hurt to kick the doubt to the curb and send up a prayer to the Man upstairs.  He’s listening and at the end of the day that’s all I can really ask for.

Have you ever been anxious about something?  What helped you to get over/cope with your anxiety?

    Congratulations! I've been a little anxious about something and I keep repeating the scripture about not being anxious and submitting your request to God in prayer. I'm adding this scripture as well. It will all work out as planned.

    Thanks! I hope that everything worked out as planned on your end. Sometimes it's so hard to not being able to fast forward to the future to see how certain situations will work out.
