Happy Thanksgiving, said with a grumpy tone in my voice...

found this oldie but goodie on the computer today... remember when Molly cut her own hair? this is FUNNY! she also has binky mouth here...her bucky teeth have gotten better.
I really don't have the heart or energy to post about this morning's Drumstick Dash. Beck went with David, Will, Ethan, Melanie, Levi and I. We had our purses/wallets stolen out of our van, which was locked.

Happy Thanksgiving?

Ok, well, here's what I AM thankful for, which, considering the past 5 months, was a stretch for me to find things (not really...I DO have a lot to be thankful for really) to be thankful for. Every thing seems to have a cloud of gray hanging over it. with little specks of light each day, in the form of my kids, David or a caring friend or relative, or an answer to prayer....or unexpected but well loved mail...

That the flippin' crooked thief didn't get all the money we had with us, which was stupid of us and very naive, to think these were the same days we lived in as children, and we can leave our identification/belongings in our cars. It's not safe out there, folks.

That my kids made it back to the van in one piece, no one was kidnapped or mugged.

That Heaven looks a little bit sweeter every. day. I'm. here. This world is NOT my home..I'm just a-passing thru...

One can't help but wonder what the Lord is trying to tell
I'm listening, Lord...I thought I had been, please reveal to me what You would like me to glean from this...

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours...God bless you!

Happy Thanksgiving, dear cousin! And, yes, I am thankful that while you had to go through all of this, that the Lord has kept you safe and well and blogging. I really do thank God for you, David, Will, Ethan, Melanie, Levi, and Molly...not to mention the rest of your dear family. I know that it might sound trite right now, but I really do hate that this had to happen to you. Love you dear one, Tory

Oh, Laurie!
I wanted to text you to say "HI" - now I wish I would have...
I, too, am thankful you are all safe.
I cannot believe it - but, then again, who am I kidding? Things happen all the time - just not quite so "close to home."
I have been praying for you and hope we can talk soon. I know you are busy and I understand if it's still a while...I will still be thinking about you and praying for you and praying the Lord will continue to show you the little specks of light each day.
Hugs thru your screen!!! ;)
