~ I am thankful that my children have grandparents that they are very close with and talk to regularly. Grandparents who bring them treats like peppermints and popcorn, take them for pizza and to the library, give them lots of hugs and kisses, and who they think are fantastic (Jamison wrote that about my dad, her Papa D, at school the other day...that he's fantastic!).
It makes me think of my grandmother, Granita, who I miss dearly, but I'm truly grateful that we were so close and that she was such an important person in my life. She was always interested in what I was doing and she was one of the most thoughtful people I know. I'm thankful that my children are experiencing the same kind of joy that comes from having such wonderful grandparents.
~ I am thankful for Tastefully Simple...have you tried it? It's a company that sells products that makes cooking that much easier. Last night I was able, at the very last minute, to go to a party that my BSF discussion group was having and because I had TS's Fiesta Party Dip Mix handy and I was able to whip up a quick dip and bring it to the party with a bag of chips. It was a hit and it was nice to be able to contribute to the snacks on a whim.
~ I am thankful that my BSF study questions yesterday included Isaiah 25:1...Oh Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you; I will praise your name, for you have done wonderful things, plans formed of old, faithful and sure. When I read this the reminder that God is faithful, sure and has already taken care of it, it overwhelms me...whether it is a health issue, or a job problem, or just uncertainty in general. HE has taken care of it already!
