Thankful Thursday ~ February 26
Another week where I didn't get more than two days accounted for with what I was thankful for. My week goes much better when I am thankful everyday. The theme for this week is basics. Please visit Iris to read more entries about this theme. It speaks about having the basics of life. Iris speaks about the people of the Yukon running out of food. I know of the history of the Yukon by reading novels by Tracie Peterson, like Ashes & Ice, part of a series. Which means I can understand this pdf from 1901 when a similar thing happened. I can't find any modern day news reports, am going to follow Iris' link.
Last night I read about the Back to Basics host Belinda who today is leaving her home for the day because it is a high fire danger day. Please pray for her home and that Victoria's fire danger season to be over soon. I read in my local paper that we are having a local memorial service for those lost in the fires this Sunday. They think that some local people will be reminded of the 2003 fires and need the extra encouragement.
I am low on money this week and today I am going about a pantry challenge or counting again, just to make sure everything is covered. I do appreciate the provision of food.
Friday: The older girls had a lovely evening at Youth group. They had an abstract art night and one of the games was based around Mr. Squiggle.
Saturday: My husband had an accident while backing out the car. Thankfully no one was hurt and minimal damage done. I am thankful we had enough money for what we wanted to do, and that included a second hand desk for my daughter's computer.
