Thankful Thursday

So there is a lot to be thankful for this week for sure… There were some cool victories for my kids like an internship (paid even, phew!), decisions made, and confirmations that they are right where they need to be. And another victory of my daughter passing a not-so-easy test ( the BEAR of the NC Realtor’s Licensing Exam.) There were also some not-so-cool or fun ‘opportunities’  that lead to eyes wide open and determinations made and support in theRead more

one in every crowd

They say, “There’s one in every crowd.” I say, thank goodness for that! Am thinking….If you’re lucky, there’s more than one 🙂 Thankful (most times!) for my ones in the crowd who keep things fun and fresh and unpredictable, I’m thankful for the way they help this (somewhat) predictable, (kind of) nerdy, (mostly) steady bird laugh and experience so much more.  Was not easy as a young mom when I was trying to keep my ‘ducks in a row’, butRead more

Thankful Thursday

So, it’s been a sweet week. Last Friday morning started with dropping Tanner and his friend off at his ‘Young Life’ ‘Brojangles’ breakfast at 7 a.m.  It’s not always easy rushing out the door that early, but there are definite perks. Like this view… At school, for our last Friday before the 3 week break (YAHOO!!!), I had coffee and emergency chocolate on hand. It came in handy. Full day. Oh, and Hope must’ve known that it’d be super fullRead more

Thankful Thursday

Ugh. Where to begin. It’s February 15th, the day after Valentine’s Day. As sweet as yesterday was, today started with how it ended last night…with the news about the 17 lost. School shooting. Ugh.  It began for so many with fears and tears and senseless loss. Tough to be thankful for that. And the Keurig coffee maker is being persnickety. That seemingly small and shallow detail didn’t help with the start of my day either. I went into school andRead more

Thankful Thursday

It’s hard to believe that it’s already Thursday again. Time keeps tick, tick, ticking away. Here are some of the things of the past week that I’m thankful for… I’m thankful for snow. The week started out with snow and walks and cold. I love how the snow just makes things stop a bit…and feel …well, quiet. Just quiet and still and like you don’t have to rush off to the next thing, but you can sit and linger. OrRead more

Thankful for…another snow day….and just another day, actually. Today I’ll just let the photos do the talking <3.       “Each day is a gift from God. What you do with it is your gift to Him.” – T.D. Jakes Blessings ~ H   Thankful ThursdayRead more

So, it looks like Winter. It feels like Winter. It actually IS Winter. But…there are some very cool signs that say that it won’t always be Winter. Love that. Potential for growth is all around, but sometimes disguised as …Winters. But if you look really close, you might see some teeny tiny buds reminding you that Spring is just around the corner. It might take some searching, and a really good zoom lens, but oftentimes when we look for signsRead more

Thankful Thursday

The alarm rang early this morning . I think it seemed a lot earlier because even though I was getting up at about the same time I usually do, I HAD to get up. And after being on break since the 21st of December, well, I’ve been spoiled a bit. But as I warmed up the car and warmed up myself with my car’s trusty and oh-so-appreciated seat warmer, and a cup of strong coffee, I was feeling more readyRead more

I drove home at sunset today.  Just as I was rounding the corner, I saw this dandelion standing tall against a vast field. The light caught it just right. I grabbed my camera, parked the car for a minute, and snapped a few shots. On this Thankful Thursday, am thankful for the little ‘insignificant’ significant things. I’m thankful for dandelions in November that catch the light of a sunset. I’m thankful that even a dandelion can stand out in aRead more
