Thankful Thursday a Little Early

I normally don't partake in Thankful Thursday but as I was making dinner tonight, I happened to glance out the sliding glass door window and what I saw, was simply beautiful. My family. Jerry sitting on the seesaw pushing Kyle in his swing, Gracie running up the stairs getting ready to go down the slide and Wrigley, our dog running around like a maniac. Everyone looked so happy and I stopped for a moment, and thanked God for blessing me with more than I could have ever imagined.

When I complain that the house is too noisy, there was a time when it was silent.

When I complain about not getting enough sleep, there was a time when I didn't have a little body snuggled up next to me.

When I complain that I don't have any time to myself, there was a time when I didn't hear those sweet words of mommy.

There was once a time when my heart was broken and now it's healed.

I want to end my post with the prayer that Gracie said at dinner tonight.

"Thank you God for giving us the food to eat. Thank you God for Kyle and for Kyle not eating his fingers and thank you God for Knott's Berry Farm. Amen".

I don't think I could have said it better myself.
