Thankful Thursdays

Three weeks in a row!!! Since I am only picking three things each week, sometimes it is hard to narrow it down. I am thankful for so many things, but I am trying to pick things that have had a major impact on my week. This week it happens to be three people:

  • My son, Henry. He is awesome. He changes so much everyday, but he is still my sweet little baby. I am often late getting ready in the mornings and it is usually his fault. I just finished nursing him and he fell back asleep. I like to lie in bed and just watch him sleep. He finds that thumb so fast!! And I rub his little peach fuzz head. His cheeks (both sets) are ever so squeezable! He loves the water-baths and pools. He constantly crawls into the bathroom and tries to climb in the tub. He's actually done it before! Right into Frances' bath!! What a splash. And then he played for a bit and climbed back out! That was a bit of a slippery catch for me. He is also trying his hand at surfing with his sister:
  • I am thankful for Julie. She is getting married in 2 days!!! We met at church and she has been my right hand ever since. She is Henry's godmother. She is the one who drove me to the hospital when I had kidney stones in January. She has watched the kids any time I have needed her. She has actually called to "borrow" them when she knew I needed a break, but refused to ask!! Now that is a friend! Frances and I have the honor of participating in her wedding this weekend. I am proud to stand at the altar and support my friend as she begins a new life as a wife. And I am especially looking forward to repaying all the babysitting (but I'll give her a chance to just be married first!)
  • I am thankful for my boss, Pam. If you have met this woman, you have seen the face of God. She would do anything to help anyone. She gave me a job when she didn't really have a job to give. She has been flexible with that job to allow me the time to have my second job at my church (not because I needed more money, but because I wanted to serve the youth at my church). She has raised two AMAZING daughters- and I hope that mine turns out just as well. She is a friend, a mentor, and a second mom to me. I don't know where I would be without her hand in my life.

I thank God daily for all three of these people in my life. There are many others of course, but I have set my limit at three or else I would be really late for work!
