Tonight was Gabe's softball practise
I'm grateful he's enjoying it.
I am grateful for Zach's imagination.
He is happy making up stories as he plays.
Tonight my husband needed a ride home from work. He works about 45minutes away from home. My wonderful sister (who lives 30 minutes in the opposite direction) was gracious enough to come out to watch the boys so that I could go and get hubby. She is the best. She finished giving them their baths and put the clean linens back on their beds!
I am SO grateful for her!
Tuesday.....grateful for Pizza Day! Every tuesday my oldest gets Pizza and chocolate milk at school for lunch. He loves it, which makes me love it too!
Wednesday.....grateful for a good checkup. Zach (the middle boy) had a Preschool Health Fair today. They checked his teeth, ears, eyes, nutrition, and immunization. He checked out all good...and had fun doing it. That is a total PLUS!! Totally grateful for that.
....for getting to my WW meeting and being down 0.8. Finally heading back in the right direction. Grateful!
Thursday....for having a really good ON PROGRAM day. This just means that I stayed within my points. I wasn't hungry, and even got in my exercise which I have been definitely lacking. A good day...one to be grateful for!
Friday....ended up having a funeral to go to today. My stepmom's Aunt died this week. She was very close to her. I was grateful to my sister-in-law who graciously agreed to take my kids so that I could attend the funeral and show my stepmom and Dad some love and support.
Saturday....Gabe got to go to his first friend sleepover tonight. He was so excited (has been all week waiting for today to come). We packed his backpack and off we went. I don't think I even got a bye Mom. LOL
I am grateful that he has found his "best friend" and its an added bonus that they just live a kilometer and a half down the road :)
Sunday.....a wonderful church service that really made me think..(I love our church family), and then off to lunch at Gabe's friend's house. We had a wonderful time getting to know their family. I think we will become good friends. I am grateful for a great day had by all.
I know this is only one or two things for each day instead of the five that I try and post, but that would have been a bit much for one post. Hopefully I will keep up this week :)
Thankfully my Dad..aka Grampa...was able to come out tonight and take him. For that I am grateful.
When I look out my kitchen window this is the view that I see (believe me it looks much, much nicer in person) There is a road, but you only see it when there is a car on it. There are wires and hydro lines, but only if you look for them. It is just beautiful wide open space that I get to enjoy every day. For this I am grateful.
I have been enjoying some blog hopping lately. I have hopped into some really great blogs of christian moms. I am grateful that God is leading me to them:)
I love him with all of my heart. We have been married for almost 18 years now and I can honestly say that we are happier now than we have ever been.
I love you !
Yesterday was a great day. We got up and had breakfast together as a family...that doesn't often get to happen with hubby getting ready or already gone to work, and Gabe getting ready for school. Then it was showers for all and off to church.
We never seem to make it to church on time, but we got there. I am VERY grateful when we do. I LOVE our church family. I love seeing their smiling faces, sharing hugs and encouragement after the service, and just knowing that people care how we are doing...and I mean genuinely care.
After church, back home for lunch...again as a family:) Then naps for the boys. Even Gabe napped, and was the last one back up! Got some cleaning done while they were asleep, and hubby dug a firepit. We are looking forward to being able to sit out and enjoy a nice fire, maybe some marshmallow roasting and good friends in the coming summer evenings.
Late afternoon our company started to arrive. We enjoyed a wonderful evening with hubby's parents, one of his sisters, and her 2 kids as well as 2 other friends of ours. It was a simple meal, but the conversation and laughter was wonderful.
It was a great day, one I am grateful for :)
