i'm linking up with punk, pumpkin, and peanut for her weekly {thankful} post. i was excited to come across it this morning because, well, who doesn't need to take a few and simmer on some feelings of thankfulness?
i was actually just thinking on thankfulness last night as i was getting ready for bed, and the thought came to mind - "we have everything we need." no, we do not have everything, or even a lot of what we might want. but when it comes to what we need, i have a very blessed little family who couldn't really ask for more.

 this week, and this moment, i'm grateful for:
air conditioning and protection from some record highs.
a husband who works hard and selflessly for us.
a little girl who is learning and changing everyday.
a growing baby who i can feel wiggling around and growing inside me.
encouragement from unexpected places.
excitement over little surprises.
family and friends in so many places.
medical insurance and our health.
finding sweet treasures at my favorite thrift store and teaching rubes appreciation for secondhand.
creativity and productivity.
momentary relief from a queasy stomach.
feeling connected to people i love even from far away.
a church body full of leaders who care about our growth.
having a pool at our apartment complex.
scripture sprinkled around our house that encourages and corrects at a glance.
this blog and the memories it keeps.

how about you?

let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
psalm 107:31
