Thankful Thursday...

I have been waiting for today all week. I have just been stressed out and doing too much. I haven't stopped "to smell the roses" at all. So here are my roses:

-I am so blessed that Lil'D is walking. Everyone keeps saying "watch out now" and "oh, no." I think it is awesome that he is walking. He is becoming independent. I am so proud of him. My house has been Lil'D proofed so I love watching him walk around the house! It has been so much fun this week watching him walk. He is still a little wobbly and unsteady, but he can get where he wants to go. Praise the Lord!

-I am blessed to have a husband who is so supportive of me! J is always there to cheer me up when I need it! He never raises his voice to me or ever really gets mad at me. He does everything he can to make my life easier.

-I am blessed to have an awesome sister-in-law. I call her Auntie E - Lil'D loves her! On Saturday, I invited a ton of people over for Lil'D's first birthday. Auntie E was right there helping me with everything! She fed Lil'D when he was hungry, she helped keep and eye on him. She helped clean up after the party was over. She is always there trying to make my life easier!! She is a HUGE blessing!

-I am blessed to have a sweet and incredibly helpful niece like Andy. She is 15, about to turn 16 in August. She was an incredible helper on the day or the birthday party. She fed Lil'D and dressed him for the party while I was picking up the balloons. She is always wanting to be involved and help any way she can! What a sweet, sweet, SELFLESS girl!

-I am blessed to have a best friend like Chica. She was also a huge help at the birthday party. She made sure I was drinking my water and stayed afterward and cleaned up. After the party, J and I relaxed instead of having to clean up. What an awesome friend she is to me!

-I am blessed that I only have 1 more day and we will be leaving for our vacation. V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N for 11 days...away from work. WAHOO!

-I am so thankful that I don't have anything to do tonight except pack for vacation. Monday was a graduation party for my nephew, Tuesday was his graduation, and Wednesday night was our church small group. Every night this week J and I put Lil'D to bed and then went to bed ourselves. Tonight, we will be at home and everything will be back to our regular schedule!!!

Blessing to all! I will be on vacation next Thursday. I may or may not have time to blog while I am gone! Have a beautiful week next week!!

-Until tomorrow

How wonderful that you have had so much help on your Lil'D's birthday. I think it is neat when they start becoming independent. They will never give up on trying new things :)

So awesome that you will have 11 days of vacation. I can't wait for my week away from work. Just have to wait a little while longer though *sigh*.

Thank you so much for sharing your thankful heart with us this week.

Be blessed today and always.
