A Thankful Heart and a Happy Birthday!


I’m trying so hard to remember how relaxed I was when I took this picture.
It was only just several days ago that I was in Pennsylvania driving around with Michele.
If we drove on one street looking at beautiful houses, we drove on a hundred.
And now, I’ve been home for two whole days.
It’s so crazy how you can go from totally relaxed to totally busy all in a day’s time.
{kind of like going from totally hungry to totally full in a few short minutes}
I look at this picture and I am reminded of all that I’m thankful for in this little life of mine.
I’m thankful for my husband who enjoyed his alone time with our kids while I was away.
I’m thankful for kiddos who missed me so much.
I’m thankful for old friends and new.
I’m thankful for fall weather with beautiful sunshine.
I’m thankful for rest.
I’m so thankful for good conversation with strong women.
I’m thankful to be able to celebrate my friend’s life with her as she hits a milestone.
I’m thankful to God for his beautiful creation.
I can’t thank Him enough for the seasons.
This is Michele’s oldest daughter, who just turned five this week!
I was lucky enough to read books to her at bedtime for a couple of nights.
She is rocking that pose with her new “fake” cell phone that the AT&T guy gave her.
This is Michele’s youngest daughter, who is never far from her paci and her baby.
She is about the cutest two year old I’ve ever seen, and her personality is even cuter.
Aren’t the flowers in those pictures gorgeous!
They belong to the neighbor, and they’re oozing out of the cute little white picket fence in front of the house.
This is Michele’s husband, who is the answer to every prayer that I ever prayed for her.
Today is Michele’s actual birthday…we’ve just been celebrating it for a week!!
Happy, Happy Birthday to you, my dear and true friend.
I’m ever so thankful for you and your presence in my life.
You are a forever friend, and I wish many, many more years for you!
You can trust God for He has proven his promises to you over and over.
Ephesians 3:20 {The Message}
God can do anything, you know…far more than you could ever imagine or request in your wildest dreams!
