Thankful Thursday: 02/12/09

This week Thankful Thursday is all about...

There are so many layers of LOVE, today I'm focusing on the love of apprecating what I have...
"...A wise son maketh a glad father..."
Proverbs 10:1
"Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers."
Proverbs 17:6

EASY, I love that my baby, Taylor is a big ol growed up man now...Smile Taylor...

I love that Mike stops by and gives me a hug, I love that he is willing to serve my country in the Army National Guard Reserves...

I love that my daughter shared her new dream truck with me, that we 'corralled' the girls I babysit, and my grands in the truck bed while she showed me the inside...
I love that the little ones had so much fun bouncing and giggling...
 

I love that I am able to watch my grands every now and then...
I love how David gives you this look when you tell him no (most of the time)...
 

I love how David is all boy, loving shoes and things that move...
I love that his two favorite toys (the owl clock and wind up radio) cost me almost nothing at Goodwill...
I love the look on little man's face when he saw the video controller on the floor, I thought he was going to pop...
 

I love that LauraJune is all girl, tending to her babies, packing her bag, grabbing her baby and ready to go...

I love that I live in a place where my door and blinds can be left open, for the sun to come in...
I love to see how they, too, enjoy the sunlight...
I love the way they play side by side...

I love how they play together, irritating each other, amusing each other...

I love MySpace where DJ posted this picture...
I love that DJ is also willing to serve in the Army National Guard Reserves for my protection and safety....

I love MySpace where Eric posted this picture...
I love that Eric is finishing his last month as an active Sailor...

I'm so thankful for my little life. For my BIG loves. Blessings of love to everyone:)



My goal this year is to soak it up, to bloom where I am planted, and enjoy the ride...
Counting my many blessings naming them one by one...
