Thankful Thursday

Okay, so a day late and a dollar short, that is the saying right? I know, I know, I missed it, but it doesn't mean I am not thankful, so here goes a few for this week...

- My dad seems to be doing better, although we are unsure if the infection has been conquered, we keep praying and hoping for the best

- Emily's school - I know it sounds redundant, but these teachers are extraordinary people, I am so thankful for the love and care they show the children they teach. This week was filled with some superb moments for Emily in the classroom.

- My mom - she is an amazing wife, mother and grandmother, and I am thankful for her example

- The family I work with - without divulging too much information, they deal with really difficult situations on a daily basis and I am thankful for their sense of humor and the place they hold in our life

- Hannah's beautiful smile and the fact that she is using it so much more now!

- Cranberry Oatmeal cookies, soooo yummy

- Trini and Jenn - can't wait to see you two - I have missed you!! I am thankful for friendships that stand the test of time, do you two realize we have been friends for nine years now??? In addition to friendship, I have learned so much from you

Yea! A new post. I have been thinking about you lots. I had a dream we met and it was like we'd known each other forever.

You are a treasure!

Thanks for a wonderful Thankful Thursday post. It doesn't matter that it's a day late, at least you were able to do it. Life does take over and we don't always get to things when we wish we could!

Have a great weekend.
