Everyday Things

At the suggestion of Everyday Mommy my post today is about some everyday thing that I'm thankful for. Many ladies mentioned being thankful for fresh clean sheets, and boy that is something that is way up there for me. Nothing like that smooth clean fresh feeling of slipping into a bed made with freshly laundered sheets.

Wow, get me thinking about it, and I can think of a lot of mudane everyday things that I'm thankful for. Just goes to show you how a little encouragement in the right direction can get a person thinking properly where all our blessings come from.

Every good and perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,
who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17

The everyday thing that I'm thankful for is cell phones. I know, I know. You're thinking, "CELL PHONES!?!? Yuck!" But before you scorn me, let me explain why. I am really thankful for the ability to talk to my sweetie throughout the day. His job is a little different and so he can't be found at an office when he's working. It's a great comfort and joy to me to be able to have contact with him when he's not home. I'm also a lot more comfortable leaving my children with the babysitter (usually my eldest daughter) knowing that I am always available in case of emergency. A cell phone also comes in pretty handy when I realize I left something off the grocery list I sent with my husband to the store.

I thought of saying cell phones as well. Like you, I can talk to my hubby as he is working on the cell phone, which I couldn't do otherwise.

I just got my first cell phone, and one of the things that makes me really happy about mine is that it won't be so nerve-racking to go out for the evening with my husband anymore! I am so with you on that!

Hey Princess, somehow I missed this post.

Can't leave a post uncommented on! How about internet? Look at all the community ou've acquired through bloggers. People adopting from Ethiopia, people who are grateful for cell phones, all sorts of people who wouldn't otherwise necessarily find each other have been able to commune because of the internet.
