Thanking God on Friday

~ I am thankful that I am able to take a few days off next week for Jamison's first week of school. She starts on Wednesday and we have fun plans for Monday and Tuesday...including Jamison Appreciation Day (where we do something fun that she wants to do and kind of spoil her a bit), going to a movie (Ramona & Beezus), and maybe the Spray Park.

~ I am thankful that Rondell's mom and stepdad brought us dinner the other night. They were leaving the next day for vacation and wanted to surprise us and spend a little time. It's a good thing too because grilled cheese was on the menu for that night.

~ I am thankful that Tastefully Simple makes making beer bread so easy...open a package, pour in some beer, cover with butter and bake. SO good!

~ I am thankful for a few blogs that I've come across lately...ones that have inspired me to be a better Christian, wife, mother, friend...like this one and this one and this one. You should check them out.

NOTE: Please pray for my step mother, Renee...her sister just passed away. Thank you.

Jamison appreciation day sounds like such a fun time! How nice to have dinner brought to you...I'm sure my kiddos would love that on sandwich night at our house too! What a great way to end the summer. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Enjoy your time off and have so much fun. I love Tastefully Simple's beer bread. So good and it is even good with sprite in it instead of beer.
I will say a prayer for Renee. I have been hearing of too much loss lately. So very sad for those families.
