Thankfulness Oct 1

Today I am thanking God for:

I think it's ready!

906.  A fun dance workshop for Audrey and her bestie;

907.  A fun day of playing Littlest Pet Shops for Emma and her bestie;

908.  A lovely day of peace for me!  I still had the same number of children in the house but because I had swapped some it was so much more peaceful;

909.  Help from our trusty spa man.


Psalm 146:2 
I will praise the Lord all my life; 
 I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Thankfulness Sept 30

Today I am thanking God for:

Water fight - do you like our fancy water pistols???

900.  A great kidney check up for Ashlea;

901.  The reminder that a one hour wait for pathology is a luxury compared to the level of health care available to many;

902.  The reminder from my 'it's never over' pity party to be thankful that it's not over.  For kidney patients being tethered to a hospital is never over.  Even after a successful transplant it's not over.  If it's over it means you've lost the battle.  I'm thankful that it's not over;

903.  Ipads to ease waiting room boredom.  I can't remember what we did before we had one;

904.  Internet friends.  Not only do I have friends I only know online now my kids do too.  Today they got to skype their online minecraft friend (don't worry the parents sussed it out first).  Best thing ever apparently;

905.  Compulsory Outdoor Fun time in the delightfully summery weather.  Did I mention I hate winter?  I'm so thankful it's spring!


Psalm 146:2 
I will praise the Lord all my life; 
 I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Thankfulness Sept 29

Today I am thanking God for:



897.  Fun at the Colin Buchanan concert;

898.  Ashlea's improved concert tolerance.  She still freaked out but we were able to watch from the cry room once she had calmed down;

899.  The great ministry Colin has to both kids and adults.

Psalm 146:2 
I will praise the Lord all my life; 
 I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.

Thankfulness Sept 28

Today I am thanking God for:


894.  Gorgeous sunny afternoons for Compulsory Outdoor Fun Time;

895.  Another week of school holidays.  After painting themselves from head to toe with wet chalk they discovered it doesn't wash off easily;

896.  Some weeds killed.



Psalm 66:2 
Sing the glory of his name; 
make his praise glorious.

Thankfulness Sept 27

Today I am thanking God for:

Magic mixer tap
891.  This mixer tap.  Actually I am thankful for this everyday.  It somehow magically keeps the water a steady temperature in the main bathroom no matter who turns on a tap anywhere else in the house;

892.  Chocolate biscuits;

893.  Ashlea cuddles (she told me to write that but it's true).

Psalm 66:2 
Sing the glory of his name; 
make his praise glorious.

Thankfulness Sept 26

Today I am thanking God for:


Mummy may be a bit sore tomorrow after our Flip Out Fun!


887.  More flip out fun;

888.  Friends to flip out with;

889.  No flip out injuries - I did worry about the disapproving looks I might get at the hospital if I turned up with Ashlea with a broken arm or leg!  To their credit the Flip Out people didn't bat an eyelid when I asked to take Ashlea on and they only charged her half price;

890.  Home made pizza for dinner.



Psalm 66:2 
Sing the glory of his name; 
make his praise glorious.

Thankfulness Sept 25

Today I am thanking God for:



884.  An art workshop for Emma;

885.  A visit to the great wall of budgies at Kellyville pets for Ashlea;

886.  Not too many cute furry / fluffy creatures at the pet shop for Audrey to want to take home.


Psalm 66:2 
Sing the glory of his name; 
make his praise glorious.

Thankfulness Sept 24

Today I am thanking God for:




880.  A fun day at Featherdale with Grandma.  All the animals were awake and active (for those not local Featherdale only has Australian native animals which are known for being lazy and sleeping a lot).  Even the snakes were awake and slithering.  Grandma wasn't so keen on that bit;

881.  New lights in the kitchen thanks to our electrician friend who was able to recycle some LEDs for us;

883.  A gorgeous sunny spring day.



Audrey wanted to take this cute baby home


Psalm 66:2 
Sing the glory of his name; 
make his praise glorious.

Thankfulness Sept 23

Today I am thanking God for:



877.  The chance to thank Variety for their contribution to our car conversion;

878.  A holiday sleep over with Grandma;

879.  A side trip to Ikea with the girls.  At first Emma was like 'How can you spend so much time in here?' but then by the end she was like 'I can kind of see how you spend so much time when you come here'.

Psalm 66:2 
Sing the glory of his name; 
make his praise glorious.

Thankfulness Sept 22

Today I am thanking God for:

Can anyone see the flaw in this plan?

874.  A somewhat cleaner car (the bottom 2/3 anyway);

875.  A first letter written to our new Compassion sponsor child;

876.  A walk / scoot to the post box with Emma.  I'd really like to do more one on one stuff with each of the girls but short of cloning myself it is hard to find the time.  Today Emma and I enjoyed a nice walk in the afternoon sunshine.  Just quietly I am so unfit that I needed a rest on our return. Locals who know just how close the post box is need not comment :)


Of course this is how the car washing ended up:
