It is always a time for gratitude when one gets to spend time with family. This weekend the boys and I were able to travel and visit my parents and my sister and her children.
I am grateful my sister arranged a cool field trip for the boys and their cousins to a dairy. I don’t know who had more fun the kids or us. It was an awesome experience.
For the first fourteen years of our married life (we are going on fifteen this year) we made do with one vehicle. I am grateful this year that we were able to purchase a second car. That extra vehicle is what allows us to make the trips to visit out of state family when DCG needs to be at work while we are away.
With the cold snap and remnants of winter hanging on I am thankful for central heating and indoor plumbing—I am not kidding. In one of those flashback memories that come from out of the blue, I was reminded that when I was Boo’s age my paternal grandparents had an oil heater in the kitchen and an outhouse. While I loved visiting my grandparents, I hated have to use the potty when there in the winter. Summer was bad enough—but snow and ice. Brrrr…let's just be glad we live where we do and are blessed.
The Lord is kind and merciful!
What are you grateful for?
I am on the road until tonight (with slow internet and an aging computer)and truly dont' know when I will get caught up, but I would like to post a request for prayer for two dear sweet sisters in Christ. Please PRAY for Heather and Kelli. If you are interested in participating in a love offering for Heather please visit BooMama.
