As another week passes and I look over the moments in the week, I am so grateful for the Power to choose. The power to choose happiness in all circumstances and all things. Life , marriage, children and friendships are all so precious to each of us. Choosing to make our own happiness , plant our own gardens of love. I thank the Lord for having given me the gift of my wonderful children. He has so blessed me indeed .I know it is up to me to do a good job raising them and looking to the joy of it.
I am thankful for the Lord being in my life.
I am so thankful for my wonderful husband and his sense of ethics and humor.
I am thankful for my wonderful family and friends.
Ok and speaking of humor. I am so thankful for the gift of laughter and a sense of humor. With my friend Mary's permission I am going to tell you what my day was like the other day. We were getting ready for the children's art park and lessons we are hosting here. Mary has 4yr. twins ,as well as a 2 yr. and was babysitting 3... She graciously offered to go with me to help get the rest of my supplies and everything I needed, for my friendship tea, I am hosting next month. I was
crying grateful that she went. Having the twins, my son and the other 4 kids should be enough said right there....LOL Are you with me still ?
10:00 am bathroom break the one 7yr Sarah jumps up and tries to flip like in "gymnastics" over the top of the door frame...while all eyes and lectures on safety were on her, the twins started fighting . I was in charge of Gracie the two year old , when I turned around she had stripped ...yes you heard me ...yes almost completely .I found myself stuttering and repeating " Oh my " over and over and other phrases randomly, intelligent things such as: no " we don't touch anything" until other people started staring and saying ok.... I grabbed her shoes yes those were off too and put them as well as her clothes back on. I then had to wash her and the 7 yr olds hands about oh...100 times . By then I felt like I had run a NY marathon and actually well ..won first place...ahem If you were in a mall and witnessed this I am sincerely apologize for traumatizing you. As for all the cute chocolates I bought to fill the tea cups, well they hopefully calorie free and still in stock ,as I ate every last one when I got home.
I am grateful for all you, your wonderful blogs and inspiration.
May the Lord bless you this week and always. Thank you for stopping in for a visit it means so much to me.
Thank you to Iris for hosting Thankful Thursday.
In his endless love,
Angel Mama ():)
