...for time alone with my oldest daughter. In the last month, things have been crazy in our house. Two of our kiddos have needed to be seen by specialists in neighboring towns (and one not so neighboring town). So I feel very blessed that today, during one of those trips, I got to spend some serious quality time with Butterfly. She is growing up so fast, and today, I felt like I had missed some of it. She is 6 now. After her appointment, we went to the mall. She has ALWAYS loved the mall. She loves the new things, she loves people, so the mall is just the place for her...and me, but that is another story. :) Today I brought her to Claire's and bought her new earrings. She has had the same ones for two years, the studs that she got when she first had her ears pierced. But since she has had to do so much in the last couple of days I thought it would be nice to get her something special. It was amazing to see how much she had changed and to see how her personality is emerging.
I am VERY thankful for my friends and family. I know I said that yesterday but I cannot emphasize it enough. Since Hubby has been out of the country my friends and family have rallied around me to help make things a bit easier on me. If I needed something or needed someone to watch a kiddo or two someone was always there to help me out. I hope that as things return to normal around here that I will be able to repay my friends and family some how. I hope that you all know how much it has meant to me that you have been there through this difficult time for me.
I am thankful for my church. Tonight is AWANA and my girls are so excited to go. They get to sing songs, play games, listen to Bible stories and recite Bible verses. They have a great time and I have a great time teaching! I LOVE MY SPARKIES! They all ROCK!
What are you thankful for today?
