Welcome to another Celebrate the Small Things post. Today I am celebrating my husband and his willingness to serve. He left last weekend with approximately thirty others from our church and went to Joplin, MO to assist in the rebuilding efforts that have continued since an EF5 tornado struck two years ago. I miss him and can't wait for him to come home, but I am so thankful that he answered God's call to assist in this mission.
I am also thankful for Helping His Hands, a ministry created to assist in disaster torn areas. This organization is who our church partnered with to make the mission trip possible. They provided the sleeping quarters, showers, and all the meals. I am thankful there are people who care enough to do this work.
My husband will be home today, and I'm looking forward to hearing all about this journey God sent him on.
What are you celebrating today?

Happy Friday! Today I am celebrating exactly that ~ happy Fridays. Fridays are when I return to my regular shift at work. This means I get to see friends who I don't see when working overtime. This is a huge plus! I also get paid on Fridays, which means I get to see the fruits of all my overtime work. Woo hoo for that! Today I am also thankful for caffeine, particularly coffee. I was talking to a friend about what it would take to give up coffee. Let me tell you, I couldn't do it. Maybe, just maybe, if my life depended on it. Otherwise, forget it. I'm totally addicted and don't mind saying so.
I'm also thankful for the women at my church. We've begun a women's ministry, and I look forward to being a part of this. Christian women getting to know each other, to encourage each other, to reach out to others...can't beat that.
No writing celebrations to share. I've currently been working six nights a week, and with all my household chores that need completing my writing has fallen behind schedule. I need to correct that.
So all my blogging buddies, what are you thankful for today? Feel free to share below!
