Thankful Thursday Bye Bye 2011
Wow! Where do I begin? First let me get this out there . . . I am very, very Thankful that 2011 is coming to a close. Because this is a thankful post I won't dwell on all the reasons why. Onto the Thankfulness . . .
#1 I am thankful that I am writing this post today. I haven't had inter-net for most of the year and my posts have been few and far between. But I am still here. I miss you guys! I do read your posts on my phone. Which leads me to . . .
#2 I am thankful that I get the inter-net on my phone. And that I have been able to keep my phone on most of the year. I love our no contract service! If your looking at cutting down on expenses for the New Year check into a no-contract service. I get talk,text and inter-net unlimited $40.00 a month. I haven't found anything cheaper.
#3. Probably should be #1 but . . . I am thankful that God has been with us all this year. I am thankful for His provision and His timing. I am thankful for the lessons he is still teaching me. And I am thankful that he is patient even when I am slow in learning those lessons!
#4. And another big one that could be #1 in it's own right . . .
. . . I am thankful that my grandson had a Birthday party given by his little friends and their mommy's. He turned 3 one week before his momma finally made the decision to separate from her husband. Because of the seperation we had to cancel his party. So a couple of weeks later their friends gave him a party! It has been an extremely hard year (3 years for him. . . 5 for her) But, they are safe. They are happy and getting happier everyday. And, I pray that God continues to keep them safe while they go through the next phase. Court. It is dreaded but we will be singing Praises when it is over and they can move on. I cannot express to you how hard it is to see your daughter and grandchildren go through these kind of situations. I am Thankful God has been with her every step of the way.
And, I am thankful that 2012 is around just around the corner . . .
I look forward to 2012 and His promises and a New Journey!
