i am thankful

the mess to clean after everyone heads home
 [it means i have friends and family that enjoy coming over]
                  ... love love love my family and friends!

clothes that fit to tight
[it means i dont go hungry]

my shadow
[it means i am enjoying the sunshine]

being tired
[ it means i have gotten some of my "to do" list done]

my alarm going off in the mornings
[it means i have a job to go to, or a church to worship in]
... which i dearly love,
  could also be because i work with the best people in the world!
    and the church... well ours is the very best ever!

    i am so blessed!

a week in review...

as you can see i have been working on a fresh new look for my blog.
... i have wanted to change it for a while now, but didnt want to 'pay ' for it .. and although i was a little nervous about changing it myself for fear of losing all my stuff , i was willing to give it a try ..
             it worked! i love it ...dont you?

moving on...
ktb and jt came in for the week of Easter. it was a joy to have them here.
we love it!
i'm thinkin' we need to move them along with our wonderful Nashville boy back home and we could just live all together under one roof...
  sounds like fun to me .. not really sure they feel that way..
            oh well...

 i am so looking forward to VACATION..
   we are planning a week trip to the beach... then later on a cruise..
      we made all of the final arrangements this week
            i'm ready to go NOW!


wednesday weight in....
       lost 1 lbs.
         man, this is a slooowwwww process.. are ya'll praying?
even though my kids are adults and on their own ..
 i still do an easter basket for them. ..
 well matthews was a stuffed "easter card" this year.
    of course i dont leave out our little karlie girl..
 here she is with her "bunny wubba"

and just for the record it has taken her one day to distroy it
 honestly.. i knew that would happen... but hey.. it's fun for her!

hope you all had a wonderful Easter week as well!
 ... we serve a Risen Saviour!
        time to get this next week going!

time and blessings...

busy busy busy...
ya' know i really thought that after Ktb's wedding
i would have lots of TIME on my hands - NOT!

it has taken me until now to get our "storage room"
[really a junk room] - but storage sounds better organizated. ..
 do any of you guys have way to much "stuff"?


then we visited Ktb and Jt's new place
then we began working on the Easter Drama at church [which is going on this weekend]

plus work. and excercise
 then its time to go to bed and start all over again
  we need more of it ..right?

moving on...
we are so glad that Ktb and Jt was granted an extended leave along with his days off, and they were able to come in on wednesday night and hopefully get to stay until the first of next week.  we are so blessed!

we have been praying for a specfic request concerning our sweet matthew, and the Lord granted that for him this past week. God is always right on time!
   i pray that we will never be toooooo busy to give our Lord the thanks and praise HE is so worthy of

"SSMT" day!

"In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion."
                                              Psalm 71:1

[ the mind is the enemies playground, he has a way of creating things in our mind that seem real.. but really aren't.
i am so thankful that my Heavenly Father has power over all things, and let's me know when it is the enemy is trying to "trip me up"]
