Thankful Thursday

What started out as a humid, cloudy, windy day turned into an absolutely gorgeous sunset here in Texas! Sunsets after it rains are always incredible, and today's sunset was no exception. I wish a photograph would capture its utter beauty, but instead, God grants us a unique horizon to gaze upon each and every evening. His creativity astounds me!

Thursday=day of reflection and thankfulness on my blog! As I reflect over the week, I'm having trouble picking just three things to write about. But, I'll limit myself for your sake (can't have you sitting in front of the computer all day long, now can I?) ;)

1. The Spurs games on TV- The Spurs is my family's favorite basketball team. And although I can't name all the players, I know the basics (Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobli, ex-Spurs player David Robinson). Since my dad is a basketball coach, I understand the game fairly well and am able to keep up with points, possessions, fouls, the works. I am always cheering for the Spurs to win. Really, I have no choice! Born into a Spurs family, always a Spurs fan. Because my family is a big basketball family, the TV has been turned to the NBA games every time they are on. It's great family bonding, cheering the Spurs on to victory, even if I'm not watching the TV all the time.

2. My dad- This week, my sister and I completely redid our rooms. I'm talking new paint, rearranging furniture, cleaning out bookshelves, etc. In order to do this, we needed some help, namely from my dad. My dad tirelessly worked in our rooms, helping us paint and move the heavy furniture. Even with his back hurting, he never once complained. He was always right there to serve. Our rooms now look AMAZING; it almost seems like I'm in a different house! Without my dad, we would not have been able to change up our rooms (which, by the way, still looked like little girls' rooms). I am so thankful for the loving service of my dad! He's awesome.

3. Fruits- Fruits are my absolute favorite food group. I would prefer eating fruit to almost anything. They are just so tasty!! Plus, fruits and vegetables give me energy and help me to feel my best. Right now, my favorites are pineapple, peach, strawberries, grapes, and mango. I'm also a fan of watermelon, kiwi, and blueberries. Let's be honest here, there's not really any fruit I don't like. I am so thankful that God made such variety of yummy fruits for us to enjoy.
