 Thankful Thursday I am truly thankful today for so much. I am going to list it here:

1. Phamily - without them, where would I be? Having Hannah and Jake here for a while is a blessing of which I am thankful. As I was typing away, Harrison James came creeping into my bedroom and scared the dickens out of me! He was laughing so hard. Goodness, I love his laughter.

2. Hard Work - getting ready for Hannah's birthday bash this weekend. Rebekah and Hannah and Jake washed down the patio and cleaned off the tables and chairs. Then they started to trim the giant pine tree. Which led to more cleaning. Hannah and Jake were up on the roof cleaning the gutters. Jake cleared the gutters and now everything is so good. Thankful for them and all the hard work.

3. Free Firewood- it has been in the 90's and we keep hearing maybe breaking 100 ( no no no please Lord no). So firewood would be the last thing on your mind right? But Hannah and Jake will cut up the big branches that fell and take them home for their winter warmth. So very thankful.

4. Baseball - It is hard to have a day go by that I don't mention baseball. I am thankful for it. Thankful for my dad that played semi pro ball long before I was thoughts about. Thankful for my mom who also played the game and two brothers as well. I played it and enjoyed it but I don't think I did enjoy it the way my mom did. I suppose she played in a different time and everyone loved the game. I was timid ( I know it is hard to beleive) so I was not as forceful as some of the bigger girls who were really good. But I have always loved the game. Now we get to watch Brody play his T Ball. Thankful

5. Games- Thankful for all the fun kid games we have. Harrison is the master of Banana Blast and Candyland. He is like Grandfather Avery. Ha Ha Ha - winner winner, I say they are both two big chicken dinners!! Brody is the puzzle master. He puts those together so quickly with Grandpa Avery and Rebekah too. Blake is our little smartie. He does everything Brody does. So he can count to 10 and he knows all his letters and colors. It is amazing to watch these little ones grow up.


                                       Thankful for all good things in my life and for all of you too. 

I always like to leave some wise words for you to read and hopefully share. 

 Some humor to make sure you smile more.

Wonderful thankful things indeed. I'm so happy they did all that work that needed doing. What a difference a little attention to detail makes.

We're heading into another heatwave started today that will end on Monday. We're staying home in the cool.

Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday, honey. Love and hugs. ♥

Is that Harrison with the phone? Man, he's handsome! How blessed y'all are to have everyone pitch in. How I wish I could still get up on the roof to clear our gutters. I used to scramble up trees like a monkey, but now I'm even leery of climbing up the ladder.
I can't wait to hear about the party!

So many blessings, and the more grateful we are, the more we seem to have to be thankful for.

Thanks for the cat meme!
