Happy Thankful Thursday every one!!!!!!
I am so thankful for many things this week like my son Graduating from 8th grade…..WooHoo Travis.
Yes, you could say I am very PROUD of him, he started school 2 months late last year and with patience on both of our part He did it. We all thought & his teachers too that we were going to have to retain him but God was diligent with seeing and helping Travis through…..Amen!!!!
On the other hand Momma has been very teary eyed because she sees her baby boy growing up way to fast; I want time to slow down. They want time to fly by hurry up so they can be an adult and now I know what all those wise Moms were saying, “slow down and enjoy your children because it will be gone sooner than you think.” Yes, I wish I would’ve slowed down to smell the flowers go to the park more often , watch & help him cook when he was younger, sat down with him when he asked, “Momma watch a movie with me.” I now stop and listen to him, I have learned to not say I am too busy son just go play a video game or watch TV. The last few God has shown me that it’s never too late to change the way you were. So I have started now to play that game with him, talk with him more and laugh out loud at his jokes. A child’s smile can warm your heart and feels your mind with beautiful memories. OK, let me wipe my tears so I can precede…..lol.
I am also Thankful that the Lord saw fit to give me another wonderful year with my Hubby. Yes, his birthday was on the 12th and with everything going on I forgot his B-day. If it wasn’t for my Mom calling me in the late morning I probably would’ve gone all day, thanks Mom for the reminder. So I am thankful that my husband was so kind and forgave me for not remembering, his comment was so heartwarming he said, “hunny its OK you have a lot on your plate right now.” Thank you Lord for bringing Karl into my life 10 years ago he’s a WONDERFUL man.
Lord, I also want to give a BIG Thank You for 2 Great parents who always feel my life with Wisdom each & every day. They mean the world to me NO words could ever describe the way I feel for them. I do believe though through your eyes Lord they see how Thankful I am that you saw fit for me to be born 33 years ago to two very greatful people who are my parents. Love You Mom & Dad!!!!!!
I’m also thankful for the sun & blue skies even though it’s getting very warm outside I’m still thankful for Gods beauty that I see every day.
Oh, I am very Thankful for the Lord watching over me this past weekend. I was an eye wittiness for and accident that happen 6 inches from my van. I was sitting at a stop light and a Lady ran a red light and of course hit the other driver who was coming through the light. I should’ve been hit and all I could say I was I know God’s hand came down and shielded my car. The people just looked at me in amazement but what I am most thankful for is how God kept me calm through all of it. He is and AWESOME GOD!!!!!!

God Bless,

Heather

Wonderful thankful list! It's funny you said "go to the park more." I was just thinking yesterday, I should have taken the kids to the park more when they were little. Why didn't I do it? Because I was busy cleaning, that's why!

My daughter graduates from highschool this year and what a blessing it is to see her do this. I know that God has had his hand in all plans as she travelled through her years of schooling. What a delight when we go to heaven to see all that he did for us
