A Thankful List

In honor the fast approaching favorite holiday of Thanksgiving, you will begin to see some thankful lists popping up here on this little bloggity.  Choosing to focus on all the blessings God has put in my life, helps me put the tough things in perspective.  

What about you?!  Do you have a thankful list?!  Email them to me and maybe, just maybe, they will be featured here this month!

10. Mint Ice Cream flavored oreos.  Thank you China for being brave with your flavors. . . you can keep your Green Tea, thank you very much.

9. Pedicures for 20RMB {about $3}  Purple with white flowers and sparkles would make any girl's day better.

8. Four-way Skype dates with sissy, her sweet man and Hubs.  AND the free 7 day trial to make this happen.  Boosh.

7. Twisty tofu for dinner.  Srsly rocks.my.world.

6. Psalms for soul-comfort.  Amen and amen.  And knowing His strength is made perfect in my weakness.

5. Stomach-wrenching laughter over late night games of Scattergories.  Since when can you use a spoon to eat gravel?!  Whatthewhat, dear-darling Laura?!

4.  All your sweet comments, emails and words.  You have no idea how much they have lifted my spirits during this time in China.  Thankful hugs being sent to each and every single one of you darlings.   Mwauh.

3. How spicey-hot Hubs is when he's helping us with math problems via Skype.  I mean seriously, who knows how to find the square root of random numbers??  And long hand to boot?!  Mhhmmm, baby.  Come to mama!

2. Walking through the veggie market to buy supplies for dinner.  The colors are purely inspiring. . . if you can get past the naked chickens hanging from that wire across the way.

1. The fact that I am less than 92 hours away from being back with my best and favorite lover boy.  That first kiss is gonna be killer folks. . .
