Thankful Thursday

I have no idea what week I'm on.  My hiatus from blogging really threw me off!  But, I'm back, and as usual, I have a lot to be thankful for!

1.  New neighbors.  YAY!  I'm so excited to have a good friend close!  And a little boy Asher's age! BONUS!
2.  Advocare.  Jim has recently started their 24 Day Challenge and is doing great!  I'm excited for him.
3.  Fresh produce.  I'm loving the Farmer's Markets and fruit stands this year.  YUM.
4.  Being back in a routine.  I love my routine, and summer sure throws it off.  We're back into a semi-routine, I guess.  It's a good thing. (That totally sounded like Martha Stewart.)
5.  Shaker bottles
6.  Phone calls from old friends.
7.  Spark.  This is another Adovcare product, and so far, it's my favorite.  It's completely replaced my coffee in the morning!!!  Yep, you read that right.  I'm loving the energy that I have from Spark, and there's no mid-afternoon crash.  I feel good all day long!
8.  Tap shoes.  Haven started tap lessons last week.  She loves them, and it's fun the hear the taps as she walks across the tile floors in our house.
9.  Deep Blue.  This rub has been a life saver the past few weeks.  I was diagnosed with tendonitis in both of my knees, and along with my sciatica, it makes for long painful days.  I love this stuff.  It's relieving my pain and healing from the inside out.
10.  Jim's blog.  If you want to keep up with Jim's results on his challenge, follow him here: 24-Day Challenged  Not only is it great to see and hear about his results, but my man's a funny guy.  He'll definitely make you laugh.
11.  For his sense of humor.  I'm blessed to have a home filled with laughter because of him.
12.  Dojo points.  This is an app that my friend Abbie recommended to me.  Its awesome.  It gives the kids points for the good things that they do and takes them away for the bad.  I added a reward once they get to a certain amount of points, and I gotta tell ya, my kids are motivated to do the right thing!  They absolutely hate when I have to take points away, and they're constantly checking to see how many points they have.  It's awesome.
13.  Physical Therapy.  I had to go for a while for the problems that I was having with my knees.  I'm thankful for a good therapist as well as what I learned to help me feel better!
14.  My resistance band.  I used to just use this to work out, but it's great for stretches, too.
15.  Miracles.  My cousin, Allie was burned pretty badly at the beginning of June.  She's back to work as of yesterday.  That's pretty amazing.  Follow her story here: Prayers for Allie
16.  Windy days
17.  Letters from the boys' new school teachers.
18.  Sprinklers
19.  Back yard pools on hot days
20.  Hope.  Hope is an amazing thing....
