I’m Thankful Today Because…

It’s the little things….

Kids sleeping in on a Friday morning when we don’t have to be anywhere….

Getting four or so hours of alone time with my husband as we take a mini road trip….

Anticipating a night without little visitors sneaking into bed and boring holes in our back with their heads and little feet (because these visitors only sleep sideways, of course)….

Winning a ticket to a conference and getting a chance to meet in person those faces that have flashed through my Twitter feed countless times….

And one big thing…

Sitting alongside 12,000 other women as we learn and worship our God together…

For this ‘Focus On It Friday’ I am thankful for (in)courage by DaySpring who hosted the giveaway to win a ticket to the Deeper Still conference, and I look forward to meeting some of their wonderful writers and the six other ladies who were as lucky as I. Β And I am especially thankful for my in-laws who are taking the three munchkins so that I can attend this conference, Matt can catch up on some work, and we can reconnect for a couple of hours each day on our mini road trip.

  1. Hi Jennifer! Thanks for making contact. I – Can't – Wait. I think we're in for a great weekend. Travel safely and see you tonight!


    PS – I love that "pee" is one of your categories. Only a mom….


  2. The conference looks amazing! Congratulations on winning a ticket. What a treat! Did you see the little cupcake award I sent your way? I posted a comment on your last blog, but it was so many days after I don't know if you had a chance to see it. In any case, if you go to my blog and see the last post, you will see what I'm talking about. Enjoy the conference!


    1. Thanks, Gaby! I'm behind on my comments and e-mails, but I am pretty sure that I did write a comment on your blog a few days ago. Thank you so much for the award. I am honored and have thoroughly enjoyed your blog as well!


    1. It was such a nice surprise to meet you, especially since I admire your writing so much. I look forward to continued chats via blogs and Twitter! πŸ˜‰
