Thankful Thursday


Please visit Thankful Thursday

Look how carefree leaves are. The leaves fall from the trees leaving them bare in colder months. Leaves don't worry. I want to be like leaves Thankful

Thankful for a serious boy with a blue mouth, who finished his blue lollipop. He was quite concerned and had to make sure I would check in on the Bronco/Browns football game tomorrow night.  This child is so smart and selfless. How he loves his little brother and big sister. Plus if you catch him when he is on a comedy trip, he will make you laugh out loud. Very thankful he is part of the fabric in our lives. Although he excels in cleanliness he is a comic like his father. He likes cleanliness because he is his mother's son too.  Lil bro and big sis were finishing their dinner. I said to this little man, your pants are going to fall off, you do not eat enough to keep a bird well fed. He had the silliest look on his face! He is what my mother always reminded me about children, a gift from God and priceless too. My mother and grandmother were filled with wisdom about all the important things in life. I am very thankful they were mine for all the years I had them.

I love music as you may know, if you hang around here. There is a beautiful country song that shares the way I feel particularly about my grandmother as she was taken when I was in the 6th grade. A long time ago but like yesterday in my life. I highlighted words in this song that remind me of my grandmother.  I believe our reunion will be amazing. She will have crystal clear vision and we will walk together in heaven's splendor. It willbe a grand time and nothing in this world will ever be able to compare to it.

I took the words from a Brad Paisley song called "When I Get To where I'm Going" and knew this song was going to be important to me when I see my grandmother and BFF again on the other side of this earth.

I'm gonna walk with my granddaddy (in my case my grandmother)
And he'll (she'll)  match me step for step
And I'll tell him (her) how much I missed him (her)
Every minute since he left (she left)
And than I'll hug his neck (her neck)

If the highest aim of the Captain is to preserve his ship he would keep  it in it's port forever.  Thomas Aquinas

He is a cute and adorable boy. When we have little kids with us, we feel so happy, young and free. Thankful for these cute young ones. I too love country songs and gospel songs.

Such a cute little guy, Anne! And I miss my grandparents and now, both my mom and dad. There will one day be a happy reunion for us all.

It's a joy to watch them grow and develop, isn't it.

Isn't it wonderful that Jesus gave us a reason to be joyful about the afterlife? I love your quote about the leaves!

Your Blake sounds like the perfect g'child -- a sweet mixture of wise and whimsical.

What a precious little boy! He is just adorable. I know you must love him and his sweet siblings so much! What fun they are! And yes, we do have a grand reunion waiting for us someday in gloryland! I am looking forward to that day so much. But first of all I want to see Jesus...and then all the others waiting in line. It will be a wonderful, glorious day. Amen.

Your little grandboy is precious. What a blessing he must be.

It's a pity that they grow up so quickly !
I remember when my son was a baby I wanted him older, when he was older I wanted him adult, and now I wished he was a baby again !!
