This week has felt like a pretty regular week. At least, I’m struggling to come up with anything interesting to write about for today’s Thankful Thursday post. But that’s kind of the point of this series. It was to help me to find things in my life to be thankful to God for, perhaps especially when life feels pretty normal. Here are some of the things I’m thankful for this week:
We recently had new hardware installed in our house that has made internet access much easier at home. I know that we are incredibly blessed that college provides us with internet at no extra cost. I am now even more thankful that it is working at home again and not just in our studies in the unit block next to ours. When we moved here to study at college we never expected to be provided with internet so this is something we are constantly thankful for (even though we sometimes grizzle when it is slow or not working).
Progress with my knitting
I learnt to knit last year (or relearned if you count the one square that I never finished when I was a kid). I knitted one scarf and then promptly stopped again. By the time I had finished it the weather had changed out of scarf-temperature. But I have been re-inspired lately and had a lot of time on Saturday to knit, for which I am thankful. I’ve been following a pattern sort-of. Well, it’s really following a certain stitch or texture and I’m making up how wide and long I want the scarf to be.
Dinner with friends
This week we’ll have gone out to dinner at friends’ houses twice (Tuesday night and tonight). I really enjoy the opportunity that having dinner together gives for getting to know each other better. We’ve really enjoyed winter dinners in our community where we have dinner with a different family each week. Tonight’s invitation came from some fellow students in our year at college and I’m thankful for their hospitality in inviting us and the chance to spend some time with them outside of college.
What are you thankful for this week?
