Today I am again joining Jenny at Special Considerations in her Thank You Thursday Post.

First I would like to thank Jenny for reminding us that we need to say thank you to those around us who have impacted our lives in some way.

Now for today's Thank You Thursday.

It goes to you, my readers and commenter's over the past few days and months.

Blogging is fairly new for me and I started it as a way to journal my path to healing. I never expected anybody to read it let alone become friends through it.

Through my journey you have seen me run, walk, stumble, trip and fall. But through it all you have continued to come back, check in on me and leave the sweetest and most encouraging comments. Please know that even if I have not personally responded to every comment, each one is read, re-read and re-read again then tucked away in the center of my soul as encouragement and is contributing to my restoring health.

I know that ultimately God is my healer and the rock beneath my unsteady feet. But, He has chosen blogging and YOU to encourage me on my path. A few of you have become my email buddies, your personal words of wisdom and love toward me are such a blessing. I can see where God has placed each of you along my path to support and encourage me forward. I am so blessed!!!

So, today I say a huge THANK YOU to YOU my readers and commenter's. YOU are the BEST!!!! I wish I could just wrap my arms around each of you but for today this will have to do.


*And now a quick update on Tuesday's post.

I am doing much better. I should have known what was happening. I ended up with a severe migraine yesterday and it lingers this morning. This happens a lot. I go into a deep depression and then end up with a horrible migraine. Instead of a visual aura my migraines are always preceeded by a few days of severe depression. Once the migraine hits the depressive state leaves. Oh, such is the life of someone turning 50 in ***8*** short days. Yikees!!!!

Definately Considering It All Joy Today,


  1. While I'm sorry you have had to endure a migraine, I sure am glad your depression has lifted. Lord, please eliminate the residual effects of this headache and give Cindy a pain-free, joyful heart kind of day! Thank you for her encouragement and care she has put into my life. We're in this together, aren't we, Lord? I know that makes Your heart smile to see Your daughters spurring each other on in the faith.

  2. Thank you for your sweet comments for me too! We are all traveling this road together. Isn't it good when we can lean on each other by praying and encouraging words! God is so good!
    Glad you are better! Praying God will heal you of your depression/migraines. He can!

  3. I'm so glad you've found encouragement through blogging!

    That migraine sounds awful. So sorry you had to experience that. I hope your trip to the Grand Canyon provides just the peace, rest, and refreshment your soul is longing for right now!

    And thanks for participating in Thank You Thursday!

  4. I'm so glad to hear your depression has lifted, but yuck migranes I use to suffer with those as well.

    That's funny I started my blog for many of the same reasons, and never really thought I would get so much encouragment from it. I'm glad I was finally obident to listen to the prompting from the Holy Spirit to start it, and be able to meet so many loving women like yourself.

    Have a blessed day.

  5. I'm so glad you're feeling better, Cindy. Sometimes our bodies know best when we need to rest, and it sounds like that's what yours was telling you. I've been on the receiving end of encouragement from bloggy friends and I'm thankful to be able to give it to you. We all need it sometimes...

  6. I am so glad you are doing better.

    Do you think that it could be hormonal? The reason I am asking is that you know I'm 50 and will be 51 the day after you... : ) And I am in the throes of menopause... and I've had all kinds of symptoms....

    Just thinking.....

    Anyways I am SO glad you are better...


  7. Praying that you continue to feel better. You have been a wonderful friend. I want to tell you thank you!!! I can not wait until your birthday.

  8. I am also thankful for you---for your encouraging posts and uplifting comments. You are truly a friend. I am sorry that you have been battling depression and migraines...I hope you will be going through a good season now and that your birthday will be glorious.


Hi Friend, I read and cherish every single comment you leave! You bring Joy to my heart! Blessings, Cindy
