Thankful Thursday

  • Great in-laws!  The last night up north Red's family surprised me by singing happy birthday to me and giving me birthday gifts.  Mind you, my birthday is like a month away so I was TOTALLY surprised.  I got some thoughtful sewing goodies; a cutting mat, clear ruler, and gift card for Joanne's.  I also got a gift for Rusty: a home-made quilt!  Red's mom made it and made sure Rusty's cousins helped.  I LOVE it!  It's gorgeous!  (It's also kinda an early Christmas present as I put "home-made quilt" on my list.) 
  • A big van.  It was great being able to load ALL our stuff up (we practically moved to Red's parents' since it was for so many days) and had plenty of room for my mom.  It also didn't overheat at ALL on the grapevine (SoCal's ultimate test for a car) with the A/C on the whole time.
  • Amazing grammies for my kids!  During the whole stay up north I may have changed a diaper three times, which is great because I think the velcro is destroying my fingers!
  • Red got time away from everything to enjoy God's creation and spend quality time with his dad.
  • My mom.  Words can't express what an amazing help she is!  Lord, give me the brains to treat her with all the honor, love and respect she needs and deserves!
  • I don't have to sit in traffic for hours a day.  Thank you, honey, for making the sacrifice for us!
  • Home-grown veggies and fruit.
  • I am a stay-at-home-mommy.  I'm so glad that it was never an argument or even a deep discussion.  My hubby and I simply agreed that it's what's best for our kids and that we'd do what it takes to make it happen.
