thankful thursday {link up}

{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Gathering with friends.  We decided to have a few people over last night to celebrate the 4th of July. What started out being, "let's just have a few people over..." quickly turned into a 40-person party.  No lie.  What better way to celebrate the 4th though??  Lots of people... lots of food... and lots of fireworks.

2) These two munchkins.  I adore these two little cutie-pies and we had so much fun together at the beach last week... I think I'm already suffering from withdrawals.  You can see more cute pics of my nieces over on my sister-in-law's blog here.  Hoping to post some pictures from our beach week soon.

 3) Patience.  Not necessarily because I have it... more because I am thankful that God is patient with me when I don't have it.  I've been getting some pretty big lessons in waiting and trusting lately... and I still have a long ways to go.  But I am so grateful that God doesn't just throw up his hands and roll his eyes at me when I constantly think I know better than him.
