Thankful Thursday

Today I am so thankful for the imagination of a bright three year old. Several years ago I was able to buy dress-up clothes for the grandkids after halloween, at KMart for a very low price.
Yesterday Shannon and I pulled some out for her to try on...viola-a princess bride.
Somehow I think in years to come we will play this often and as years pass by suddenly the time will come for her to be a real bride. I am so thankful we have many, many years left to play.
Today it is clear blue sky outside and warm already so I'm thankful that I can put shorts,a tank and flip-flops on and I look forward to playing in a wading pool with my grandaughters.
Nine years ago today, my oldest daughter Carrie walked down the aisle to meet her prince and say "I do". I am so thankful for her choice in a husband, their marriage and our wonderful son-in-law Brent. Hard to believe so much time has passed but when you are raising a family time does fly.
I am so thankful for my home and the area we are in.
I am thankful for the wisdom my hubby had in choosing this home for us to rent until our home in Ca. sells. I am also thankful for living across the street from Carrie and her family.
I am thankful that yesterday I got time to start a new wall hanging and help Kim sew a project.
I'm not as good as I'd like but I'm thankful that I do enjoy my relatively new sewing machine and got some time to work on it.
I am thankful for God's grace that covers me daily, from His presence to His word to the love poured out in my life from sisters around the world.
I am thankful that we can all dream and look towards the future with hope and joy, trusting that my days are in His Hands.
