thankful thursday

i was so excited when i saw this last week:

then yesterday i was thrilled when i saw this:

i didn't think it could get much better, but this morning my sister-in-law di and i went shopping in independence, mo (about 12 miles from our house). i definitely had to fill up just so i could have this receipt:

let me zoom in for you...



i really don't need to elaborate on these pictures, but i will!

right after ben and i were married i remember gas being around $1.20/gal. and i remember when gas started going up that i thought $1.60 was through the roof, out of this world, insanely expensive.

man, what a difference a few dollars makes!! thank you, God, that a mere four months ago i got to pay... (yes, GOT to pay. that means i have a car. that runs.) ...$4.09 per gallon of gasoline, because that has totally put $1.60 into perspective!

what are you thankful for today?

Good perspective. I am super thankful for the great gas prices, too! Although in MN, we are still at $1.73
