Thankful Thursday ~ August 7

The theme this week is Hope.

I am thankful today (Wednesday) for lots of things. I have not long got home, I'd been out for 10 hours. I took our middle daughter to a ballet event. I was thankful I got there and back safely. It wasn't an easy drive, our daughter was very excited. One the way home it was dark, but thankfully I travelled with two others, who may have stopped if something went wrong. We must have left about the same time. There were no kangaroos or wombats about.

We got to see the new library (pictured). I got done what I had to do, including buying some furry material for our second son for a costume. We were blessed to find the right colour and it was on sale. We enjoyed the shop very much, they had lots of costume items. It really broadened out outlook a bit.

Edited to say that I have been reading a book called Love's Shining Hope by JoAnn A Grote. The lady in the story collects the scriptures on hope.

Hi Monica. Thanks for saying hi etc. It is actually a library and combined museum. I'm glad I went to visit the library part. Maybe I can check out the museum one day.

Your library looks amazing! I always have a very happy son when it's homemade pizza night. :-) Blessings to you in the coming week!

It is so fun to stop by your blog each week. Kangaroos and wombats? We have to watch out for armadillos, rattlesnakes, and coyotes crossing the road. Blessings to you.

We have snakes during the day. Do armadillos mainly cross in the day too? We had tortoises last year, very hard to dodge. I was pleased that is was my car that was swerving, and we had that fixed. Still they are hard to get around.

I suppose it is our library but quite far away. We have a local one too that they deliver to.
