Seriously, though, I am thankful almost every minute of every day and I tell God that as I'm running from one thing to another. Since you can't hear me talking to God (I'm really quiet), here are a few things...just so you know I'm still my chipper old self.
1. I love that my kids sing. OK, there are times (at the dinner table!) that I would rather not hear a rousing edition of "Table of Plenty" (however appropriate) but it's so nice to hear them sing through their day. Since we lost Kids Place Live a few months ago, it's mainly hymns and VBS songs. Which is my personal preference.
I wish I had an audio file for this. Right now #3 is singing a VBS song as loudly as possible and the other ones are joining in on occasion. I think we're going to do an entire month's lessons in song. Perhaps that will help with memory!
2. Our summer trip. We were so blessed to make it to Slovakia and back! The churches and the family experiences were amazing. Now, having reflected on those things, we are starting to remember (and unearth) some of the funny/interesting things from our trip:
4. My nerdy husband. I say that with the utmost love and respect! He listened in science and math and now, when the time comes to talk about deca-whoozit or tetra-whatever, he's the guy I call.
And, no, I'm not losing weight because...
7. My beautiful neighbor. The woman who lives down the street has nine grown children. NINE! I think she feels a kinship to me (even though I'm a slacker baby-wise) because many times a month immediately after a new baby but even now, at random times (like today, bless her) she drops by a dinner casserole, cookies and BREAD. Lovely Italian soft, yummy bread. So, yeah, I guess I need to run.
Thanks for listening. I AM BLESSED!
