Thankful Thursday: I’m going!

Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good;  His love endures forever.  Psalm 107:1


Wow!  Many months ago, I heard that Savvy Blogging Summit tickets were on sale.  I hurriedly (and excitedly) clicked over to purchase mine, but much to my dismay, saw that the conference I so badly wanted to attend in Atlanta, Georgia was




No. NO!

For many months, I fretted and pouted, but all the while, sought a way to find a coveted ticket.  (Have you seen Charlie and the Chocolate Factory?)  Yeah.  It was sorta like that.

I emailed Toni over at The Happy Housewife.  I figured she’d know someone who had a spare ticket.  She didn’t, but said she’d keep her eyes open for me.

I tweeted, “anyone have an extra ticket to Savvy?  I need one.”  No response.

I emailed Toni again.  Still no ticket.

Then one night, at dinner with the Fabulous Joy (designer of THIS blog) from Five J’s, I mentioned wanting to go but couldn’t because I have NO TICKET, and you guessed it!  She knew someone who had a ticket that they weren’t going to be using.

Now, before I count all my chickens before they hatch, I don’t have the ticket in my possession yet, as name changes and so forth have to take place, BUT, the owner and I have agreed that I can buy the ticket from her!

So, y’all….I get to go to Savvy this year!  I’m SO excited!

I’m thankful that I get to go!  And I’m thankful that God makes a way, even when we might have already given up hope.

What are YOU thankful for this week?

  4. I am thankful for the many friends praying for me. I am 18weeks pregnant with my 13th baby. My water broke and the doctors sent me home from the hospital to be on bed rest. They are not very hopeful for the survival. I am begging everyone to ask all they know to pray for a miracle! Please join me in my quest! THY WILL BE DONE!!!

  5. That’s great! I wish I could go with you!

    It will be good. I’m sure of it 🙂

  6. So glad you get to go to Savvy! thanks for hosting!
