~Thankful Thursday ~ The Little Things

Don't forget to leave me a comment until February 20th when I celebrate my 1st year blogging.

I am giving away two beautiful wall crosses to two randomly drawn names of anyone who leaves a comment on my blog.

I posted a picture in my sidebar of the crosses.


Welcome to another Thankful Thursday!

I am thankful for the wonderful people in my life that stepped up and willingly, do things for my family that will enable Roger and I to have some alone time...a little getaway.

Our anniversary is February 23rd and we always go off for a long weekend. My mother has always taken care of my children that would allow us to have some "us" time, but with her still recovering from her broken hip/thigh bone...she isn't driving yet. That is where my friends and family have come together... and together we will get it all done and Ty taken care of from today through Sunday.

It is going to take the help of 4 people to pull this trip off and it begins this morning (Thursday)! One will pick the boys up from football practice, one will take care of Tyler on Thursday, get him to school on Friday and then again that afternoon until my sister can pick him up and take him to my mother who will be taking care of him the rest of the weekend.

I know, I know, he would hate for me to say "that someone has to take care of him" because it sounds like they are "babysitting". He would say it like this..."I'm hanging out with my friend on Thursday and part of Friday, then...I'm going to my grandma's for the weekend".

Interpetation...someone is giving me a place to stay, giving me a ride to school and something to's all cool! You know, the teenage thing!

I am so thankful for my family and friends...Simone, Kelley, Lana and my mom. I couldn't do it without you guys! I love and appreciate each of you so very much.

Sometimes, other people do what they feel are "little things" but they have a "big impact" on our lives. This is only one example of me being thankful for the "little things" in my life. If I listed all of them...I would never get out of town.

Happy Thankful Thursday!!! For more wonderful thankfuls...visit Iris at Grace Alone.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
