Thankful this week....
*That my mom arrived home safely after another road trip to FL
*that my father in law selflessly gave up his day off to pack a trailer full of our AZ belongings
*that our friend from AZ is driving that trailer to us...this week!!!!! Seriously, so so selfless- he is a dad and hubby, and is so thoughtful to take time away from family to help us. Awesome life lessons learned through others. I love our family & friends!
*that Harrison was a testimony to his baseball team last night... normally no Sunday games, but since our
*that this is my 1st official school free week! My capstone paper was turned in last Wednesday, and so today is Monday, normally homework is due, and I can delete GCU from my favorites :) WAHOO! :)
**Disclaimer- I really enjoyed my educational journey, and I HIGHLY recommend GCU's online program to ANYONE, but the last class was brutal, especially since I already walked in the graduation ceremony so my momentum was zapped & the professor was SUPER HARD CORE!!**
*that my dad's awesome cousin whipped up 3 beyond delish fruit cheese braid bread thingies- think homemade breakfast danish - then times that by a million- soo moist & fresh & gooey!!
*that I have more time to do random acts of kindness. I found a cool DIY page for painting a plate, and then filling that plate with goodies, and asking them to repeat and pass it on... yay for Dollar Store plates, Michael's Coupons & time :)
*that our kids love each other, they really do, although it does appear questionable sometimes. Listening to them discuss their dreams & nightmares from last night, over cereal this morning was beautiful. Hannah's admiration for Harrison is so sweet to see. Her blue eyes were very big and focused on his story about the lizard that turned into a dog, that chased Hannah, but of course Harrison fought the dog -lizard off, and rescued Hannah. Imagination & love combined.
*that our worship yesterday was literally in Heaven. Amazing how someone else's heartache & trials, can make their worship so so real and emotional. It showed us our friend ( who prayed) his direct link with God. Some people can pray and it sounds robotic and mechanical- "vain repetitions"- but yesterday - the best part were in the silent moments. His heart was poured out. Our hearts poured out as he literally was just talking to his Heavenly Father. Such beauty in the simple times with God. The distractions were gone & Heaven filled our gathering. Matt & I have never had that experience publicly, ever, and we are thankful so thankful for yesterday's morning.
Another week is here, one week+ left of May! Make it awesome :)
