Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday strikes again! I'm thankful to Greg for continuing to host this...or maybe I should say 'hosta' this since he's so into gardening!!
If you'd like to join in, please do? I think its a good thing to count one's blessings regularly, it certainly helps me to focus on things positive.

And this week's Thankfuls are:

1. Thankful that my 'away girls' still like to ring regularly and update me on the main events in their lives, some good, some not so, but I just am glad they like to chat. They are always and continuously such a gift to me.

2. Thankful that Youngest's State Exams are over- Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! and you can put away the ammunition now...We survived by the skin of our teeth and can start the real business of the Summer now: Doing Nothing!!!!

3. Thankful that the Primary Schools shut this week- last Assembly and farewell to 6th Class yesterday. Its always kinda sad to say goodbye to them but its such a small town that I regularly see past students around in the shops and that, and generally accost them for their latest news! And to give them their due- they are almost always kind enough to stop and share the scuttlebutt! Being a Teacher has its delights!

4. Thankful that its the Summer Hols and now we can drift for two months without School and College deadliness and 'must-do' frantic tearing about.

5. Thankful for my garden- its still a jungle to the 'untrained' eye but I get so much enjoyment from working outside in it and planning what to plant where and how it will look. I once read that a packet of seeds is the ultimate in optimism, but to me growing things is a statement of faith in my God-
He has provided-
He does provide-
He will provide-
Doubt never raises its ugly head in my garden.

Any blessings you want to share?

Gosh, don't your primary schools break up early, ours don't break up until the last week of July, by which time the summer's half over.

Hey girlfriend!!! I just got caught up, I have been so busy with everything, I have fallen very behind in my reading and blogging. I feel a little guilty but I think everyone has weeks like this!
Anyways, I LOVE Jar Jar Binks, he is very cute and maybe you DO have a job waiting at the star wars camp!!
Congratulations on your 1 year blogaversary! That is awesome and I enjoyed your first post!
I also love your daisies, mine never come back up, but I should not say that because I just saw 1 daisy out side!! LOL
I have never grown strawberries, maybe I should! They look yummy...
Thanks for visiting today, I should put up a new post today!!
