Hey, I'm still here. I kept up with the daily thankfuls fairly well on facebook, but blogging takes a bit more time, so got neglected.
How bout I start fresh?
Thankful for two boys watching The Sound of Music with me. I thought they would hate it, but Evan was mad when he realized it's on til 10, past his bedtime.
Thankful for a Santa and an elf, for a Christmas stocking holder. A friend makes wooden crafts, and I finally got her to make me a stocking holder that stands on its own, and I can't wait to see it. I've only bugged her for two years! It's impossible to hang stuff on our plaster-concrete walls. And somehow, it's already paid for. Thank you, Santa.
Thankful for the beauty of the first snowfall. School isn't cancelled yet, but I am betting it will be. It's beautiful outside, peeking from the warmth of the front door with the neighbor's Christmas lights twinkling.
Thankful for a week with my mom, even though she left a bit early with the ugly weather forecast. She joined Tom's family for Thanksgiving, we all traveled to my dad and stepmom's for a couple days, and stayed for 3 6th grade basketball games and a long morning of doctor's appointments today at the Barn. I miss her dishwashing already. It is kinda weird though, to tell her how to fold laundry and which dishes were not machine-wash. Pretty sure I should just be thankful she's doing my laundry and dishes!
Thankful for a new garage door opener. We put off that purchase for several years, but caved in for a Christmas present for me. The arm is gimpy, and it's hard to stretch to pull the door closed.
God blesses us, every single day, and we are so lucky.
