Celebrating the little reasons to be thankful





The little reasons to be thankful:

I came home tonight and ate the first meal cooked on the stove in our new home. My sweet husband cooked chicken breast and salad. It has taken a month to get to this point. The stove is still not completely up and running- we are waiting for additional parts- but one burner works, and my husband cooks, which are both good reasons to celebrate!


We also ordered the brick floor for our livingroom/kitchen today. It should be completely installed in two weeks. Which means, in two weeks, the furniture will come in from the garage and I can unpack.

... AND.....

The floor was less than what we had planned!

which means we can get something else for the house!! I have my eye on some blinds.

Every day there are more reasons to be thankful!

Yippee on the stove! It's the little things that are blessings when you're working on a home...we're in year 9 of rennovating our home, and I totally understand where you're at--we had one burner and a toaster oven for over two years, and it's amazing what you can do with that and a microwave :)

You're going to have fun decorating your new home. It must be nice to have dinner ready when you come home.

Have a blessed week.

I stand amazed in the presense!
We can always see His work if we only look. Sounds like things are coming together for you. And what a surprise to come home and your husband has dinner cooked. That has happened to me but it has been a while.
Blessings,
Mama Bear

To have a hubby that cooks on a one burner stove...that's a definite reason to be thankful :-)
Be blessed,
