Thankful Thursday

This Thursday I focus my thanks on my children and being a mom. My two boys bring joy and adventure to my life and make me a better person. I'm humbled and eternally thankful to be their mother.

Because the boys are visiting their dad this week in Oklahoma, the house is so quiet, the table stayed cleaned off, and there were no arguements to settle. But those little things make up the day to day life of our loving family. The quietness continued when there would have been songs to sing at bedtime and jokes to tell at dinner. Those two are an unbelievably sweet blessing to this mom. I told my 10 yr. old son last week when I picked up his dirty socks from the living room that picking them up made me think that I was so grateful to have a son to pick up after. And it's true!!

That is so true - since our son moved out this past September, it is very quiet around here. I am thankful that he calls us often though.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

Be blessed today and always.
