“T” is for Texas, Travel, Thrills and Thankfulness


So here is another post for #BloggingAtoZ challenge for April 2016, and today’s letter is T.  For me, “t” is for Texas, thrills and thankfulness.  First, it is for Texas since we just made Texas our home for the next few years thanks to the Army Reserves transferring us here.

“T” is also for thrills.  Most years for our anniversary, we take the entire family and go to Fort Eustis to stay in a cabin and get some thrills visiting Busch Gardens.  My children have followed in my footsteps with a love of roller-coasters, which of course provide a lot of thrills.

Water rides provide a different type of thrill – the thrill of getting cooled off on a hot day and they having to figure out how to dry off.

Finally, t is for thankfulness.  One example, is being thankful our son was fixed up quickly and did not find the entire procedure too horrible when we had to go to the hospital shortly after moving to Texas.  Here is a picture of him in the Emergency Room.

We are told in the Bible to be thankful, such as in the book of Ephesians 5:20.  So I want to choose to be thankful today for what I have, including my family.

Ephesians520

So what comes to mind for you when you see the letter “t”?  I would love to hear from you.
