Our children I am so proud of them. They have grown so fast. For the most part they have not given us to much trouble. A few attitudes here or there but nothing that could not be taken care of with a missing cell phone for a few days or handing over the keys of their car to their dad. Thanks to a lot of praying, patience, communication and love things are turning out well.
I am one proud parent.

Well it is back to normal routine for us. That means back to school and work. It was a nice spring break week off. We did not do much. Courtney went and spent a few days with Grandpa. She loves spending time on the farm. Ryan was home most of the time. He is definitely my home body. Alyssa was home from college for the whole week. She left yesterday to go back. So my heart is a little heavy. I wonder if this will ever get any easier. As I sit here writing this I just tear up. I know this is part of life her growing up and leaving but it does not make it any easier. Boy am I going to be a mess when I have two gone in the fall. I have a feeling Courtney is going to get a little spoiled.
Hope you have a wonderful Monday.

I decided to participate in Thankful Thursday. It is being hosted by http://womentakingastand.blogspot.com/ . It really had me thinking. There have been so many things on my heart. Things that I am either upset about or maybe jealous. I can not figure out which one it is. Any how, this I hope will change my heart today and make me think on the positive.
1. I am so thankful my family is all home over spring break under one roof.
2. I am thankful for the down time we have needed.
3. I am thankful for my father-in-law and his wife. They are wonderful to out family.
4. My husband of course. Firm yet gently enough with the kids so they can figure out who they are.
5. My kitchen (I know silly). But I am thankful God has given us the food and appliances he has for me to be able to fix wonderful meals and goodies for my family.
Those are the top five on my heart today. Of course they will change tomorrow. Oh I feel better.

What I hear: The clock ticking and the birds singing
What time it is: 7:40 a.m.
What my devotion was about this morning: Ecclesiastes 11:7-10
On the To Do List today: Make my father-in-law lemon bars for his birthday. Meet him some where to pick up Courtney. She spent a few days with Grandpa.
Outside my window: Cloudy and a little chilly not bad
What I am thinking: About Courtney getting her braces off, Alyssa needing a new tire and ordering Ryan a tux for prom.
What I am thankful for: So many things but one would be my family will all be under one roof tonight. There is not a better feeling.
I am praying for: For our finances this summer since I don't work in the summer.
Have a wonderful day.

As I thought about the story she told me my heart filled with joy. I was so proud of her. One for being a college kid aware of her surroundings in this crazy world. Two for taking the time to help a stranger when she was clearly on her way to leave. I live in a small town and walk to work everyday and I can not tell you how many people in their cars will not even stop to let me cross the street. They keep going like they don't even see me. Anyhow, how would you react in that situation? Are you to busy to notice your surroundings and the people in it. I know I am very guilty of that. My daughter has taught me a lesson. I thank God everyday for the wonderful child he has given me.
