i am thankful

on this day
this thursday,
i am thankful-

there is so much
to be thankful for...

coffee dates with my husband-

yesterday when we were out together
my husband and i were talking
when he told me
i was his best friend
it was just such a sweet moment...
how can you not be thankful
that after 31 years of marriage
he still calls me his best friend!?

i am also thankful

for the new ring that i just ordered
with my hubbies and my initials on it-
i cannot wait
the little heart ring will read;
m & m

cute hand-knit headbands that
i received
from lap of luxury :)

my new macbook air

a freshly painted
& clean spare room
for my college daughter
to move back into

our two grandsons
whose faces light up
when they see the hubbie & i

for coffee in the morning
diet vanilla coke in the evening

shelves & shelves of books
just waiting... to be read

for this and so much more-
i am truly thankful this thursday

be blessed today
and may you take time
to enjoy the moments...big and small
and be thankful for them all!

Thank you for reminding me of all the things I am thankful for. In the midst of this time with my mom, it's good to stop and focus on all that is going right! (and my sweetie calls me his best friend too. ~~sigh~~ we're lucky ladies!!)

That is such a wonderful thing to say from your husband, that, after all these years, you are his best friend. I tell you, it doesn't get much better than that! And, yes, seeing our grandchildrens' faces light up is so, so special. Then they start running towards you. It doesn't get better than that either!! Take care my friend, and I will be thinking of your tomorrow. Remember, "shiny!".

There is definitely so much to be thankful for! I hope that 31 years from now, my man can still say that I am his best friend. Hope you enjoy your Macbook Air. I have thought about getting one myself.

Oh my goodness you are God's "nugget" to me today! I just found you. What a treasure chest I will be exploring in the next few days.
Have a blessed Friday.
