OH, my gosh!!
So much to be Thankful for this week!
Taking time to be Thankful
for the ordinary things in life
things that happen every day
A time to remember to be thankful to God
A pause in the week for praise,
thanksgiving and thinking positively
in addition to the normal
daily praise we need to give God.
(even in the muck of life)
With temps in the 60's and even around 70 here in Minnesota,
I'm Thankful for that, and for girls catching water dripping off the roof
and playing literally all day in it.
(ruining their winter boots)
Thankful we hopefully won't need them anymore anyway!
Thankful for rubber boots....
See that snow?
Thankful it's gone now!!!
Thankful for a Sunday walk....
A Tuesday walk....(it was gloomy and rainy/misty Monday)
that took us to the big field behind our hill.....to run and play in...
Thankful for muddy paths through the woods, up the hill...
and running kiddos down our hill to our home...
Thankful for Wednesday walks and sleeping babies and neighbor ladies...
OH, that fresh air knocked him out--he slept like 3 hours after coming inside!!
(I got so much done)
Thankful for mud to play in and little girls who are not afraid to get dirty...
"Mama--I ceenin', I ceenin!"
(I'm cleaning, I'm cleaning!)
Thankful for a girl after my own heart!!
Don't you just wish you were a kid again?
Playing in the mud, making mud soup
without a care in the world?
Thankful for new tree climbers...
(she's so proud she can finally climb!)
Thankful to see life through my kiddos eyes again
Thankful for swinging time...
Thankful for little girls curls
I just want to keep her hair like this forever
Thankful for sweet little babies
This weekend, I ate gluten, to test it out
(hence the laundry screamer)
I had to try out that cake of Jedi's
(it had an Oreo crust)
and then we fon-dued for his birthday supper
(with a batter to dip cheese into)
and did the same thing on Sunday,
He was so fussy Sunday and Monday
He is fussy anyway, especially in the evenings,
but, when I don't eat that gluten, he's got these
times of happiness and contentment
full of smiles and cooing.
Thankful I can do something to make it better for him
Thankful for baby Leo and that his surgery was a success!!
(he still needs prayers for a speedy recovery and the pain to go away quickly--poor baby)
Thankful my friend Susie, passed a kidney stone the other day and is doing fine!!
Thankful for another friend who brought us a whole bunch of meals for our freezer,
she even brought gluten free muffins and pizzas for me!!
Thankful for a call from my brother's wife and hopefully a relationship on the mend
(his and mine)
Thankful for all of you
Have a great weekend!
