Thankful Thursday

A time to remember to be thankful A pause in the week for praise, thanksgiving and thinking positively in addition to the normal daily praise we need to give God.


  1. That was a super duper thankful thursday post Jamie. Loved the great pictures and sitting here so happy that you had that experience and loving in-laws that make things happen. Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

  2. Thankful you all had a good time. Nobody got sick??!!

    You are blessed with family that you CAN go on a trip with.

    Glad you had some sweet hubby time. LUB those times.

  3. I just started to follow your blog today. Happy to hear you had a wonderful time away with family, and that the remainder of your family at home was well provided for by your inlaws. What a blessing!

  4. What great in laws you have! Glad your families were able to have a great time!

  5. Hi Toll House Cookie!
    (your name makes me very hungry for choc chip cookies!!)


    My in-laws actually paid for all of us, all 7 of us, and all of my hubby's brother's family--all 5 of them to go to Mexico, with them!

    No one was left at home!!

    They watched the kiddos at the resort on Sat afternoon for us.

    Christine, Yes, Tom got sick Wednesday with diahreah (sp?) and kept it til we got home and had the nastiest farts I've ever smelt. We call them Mexico farts.

    Jedi also got sick on Thursday after our morning walk on the beach--we got up at 5:30 am and then swam afterward. By 10am he had fever and chills and diahrea.

    It only lasted a day and he was better. Except for the D thing.

    No one else got sick in our family.
    I'll post more on all the details later!!


Thank you so much for stopping and commenting!
