Thankful for April and Thankful in April


I am thankful for April. Despite the April Fool snow yesterday -- big wet white flakes when I got off the train for work yesterday -- I know warmer and brighter days are ahead. I may just get to hang up my heavier winter coat any day now and put away my hat and scarf for a long time.

I am not just thankful for April, but I am going to be thankful in April. Each post will focus on something/someone for whom I am grateful. And as ever I am thankful for the One that brings us through the snows of every season and into sunlight.

Have a beautiful Saturday, dear friends!

I won't be putting my heavy coat away just yet. I need more warmer days before I can do that. That snow went south and east of us so thankfully we didn't get it. It is good that we can be thankful to the One that gets us through it all! Have a wonderful Saturday!

Hope your snow goes away and spring comes to you! It's wonderful to give thanks through all things, and sharing your thankfulness in your April posts sounds like a great thing to do!

I love the thankful in April blog idea. I have another friend doing something like that now but hers is the list of 1,000 things. She is in the teens.
