Thursday Thirteen #8
February 22, 2007

I am trying hard to have a thankful heart. The last few weeks have seen me with the Winter Blah’s!!! I am in need of warmth & sunshine. So, this week I give you 13 things I am Thankful for!

1. My husband who works to provide for our family and enables me to stay home with our children! (Even when he doesn’t feel like it)

2. My daughter’s unconditional love. She loves me when it’s good and even when it’s bad! I love her big heart!

3. My son’s sweet hugs and sloppy kisses! You can’t get much better than a 1 year olds sweet love!

4. Definitely thankful for our God Almighty! Especially his forgiveness & grace. He accepts me however I am and that is a blessing!

5. Clothes to wear even though I complain about doing the laundry. Food to eat even though I sometimes complain about cooking. A house to live in even though I complain about keeping it clean!

6. A new heat pump and central air! We were using portable heaters and our electric bill just kept growing and growing. Not to mention we weren’t able to heat every room in the house.

7. Wonderful neighbors who have children my daughters age and they often play together! They also have been right here when I really needed them. It is so nice to have good neighbors!

8. A great new online community for Christian mothers called Moms Of Grace! Finally I’ve found a forum where I can get inspiration, encouragement, and motivation to live a life God would have me live. There are moms of all kinds there – diverse and welcoming!

9. Warm, sunny days in the forecast. Need I say more!

10. Menu Plan Monday! I have gotten some great new recipes to add to our repetoire! Also some great menu planning and grocery money saving ideas!!!

11. My digital camera which was handed down to me from my mom! Thanks Mom!!! Now I’m able to capture all the silliness around my house whenever I want!!! (I mean I have a non-digital camera, but I love being able to see the pictures instantly! Instant Gratification!)

12. Reconnecting with old friends along with the ability to forgive and forget! It feels so nice to talk to old friends without any resentment or anger there!!!

13. A king size bed! I love that our bed is big enough for the four of us to cuddle and snuggle together without falling off!!! And it is so roomy and comfy when there are only the two of us! It is a great feeling!

There is so much to be Thankful for and writing this out made me really think and really happy! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Thirteen things about My Son!

In honor of his 1st Birthday which was February 9!

I love the way you…

1. Greet me in the morning with your arms outstretched and a big smile on your face!

2. Lay your head on my shoulder and pat my back when I ask for a hug!

3. Smell. Seriously, is there any other odor that smells so sweet as a baby? Especially when they get out of the bathtub?

4. Light up when you see your Daddy after he’s been at work all day!

5. Play with your sister. Watching the two of you together makes my heart melt!

6. Giggle. Oh, the sweet sound of baby laughter!

7. Pet our dog, Bella! She is so easy and patient with you and you are just mesmorized by her!

8. Dance. Oh my word that is one of the cutest things ever. You’ve got rhythm little man!

9. Smile! That smile could melt the coldest heart!

10. Brush your hair! Ha! You love to walk around with your brush and try to brush your hair. It is so funny to witness!

11. Try new foods! I have to say you really aren’t too picky. But, you love chicken. You’ve eaten chicken any way that I’ve made it!

12. Storm through the house like you are on a mission to visit every room and touch everything in it in under 30 seconds!!!

13. Let me hold you and rock you to sleep! You wouldn’t let me do this for awhile and I wasn’t ready to give it up, but you gave in. And now it is one of my very favorite things of the day!

I love you little man! Happy 1st Birthday!

Thirteen Things about Becky!

Ok, so I have become obsessed with reading blogs and have found some pretty amazing bloggers out there. They inspire, motivate, encourage and feed my spirit! Aside from the beautiful ladies in my sidebar, whom I read on a daily basis, I have come across some other ladies who will also be joining them on that list! So, today I want to share some of the new blogs I have found and spread some linky love! I hate to narrow it down to 13, but that is the title you know! 🙂

1. Denise! I’m following suite here. She did this last week and I was honored to be mentioned on her list all the other wonderful bloggers. I first found Denise through Menu Plan Monday and saw she loved to read. And boy is she creative…her cards are beautiful!

2. Sarah! I’m sure a lot of you already are familiar with Sarah, but I just found her a few short days ago. I went to read her blog last night and I could not stop! She is real and honest and funny! She had three beautiful children, too! She also loves to paint (me too)!!!

3. Barb! You probably know her, too. She is Sarah’s aunt and they have a whole family of bloggers! She is a wonderful mother, wife, friend and so much more. She recently won the CWO’s Sweet Scent Homemaker Award. She is very deserving of this award! I just recently delurked on her site and she came by to say a few sweet words and I was so happy for that!

4. Katrina! She loves to read and hosted the Fall into Reading Challenge! I can’t wait to join in the Spring Challenge!

5. Bev! Yep, she is part of the blogging family with Sarah and Barb. She is actually Sarah’s mother. Anyway, I’ve not been reading her long and haven’t actually delurked, but what I’ve read I’ve loved! She also loves to read!!!

6. Big Mama! Another one I’ve not been reading long and haven’t delurked yet! But, oh goodness, this Mama is funny! 🙂

7. Veronica! Ok, I first found her when BooMama pointed us in her direction for a series of posts about the Twelve Days of Christmas! This woman can write and those posts (I haven’t finished all of them) brought me to tears! She is also crafty!

8. Laurel! I first came across Laurel’s blog when I found out about her New Year’s Meditations! I love to visit her site for help along my journey! Her faith is inspiring!

9. Friday Style! Susan has a very funny blog over here, but this one is devoted to Style Q & A! I admit I am a mommy uniform wearer most of the time. Please don’t hate me for that! 🙂 I hardly go anywhere, but when I do I head her words of advice!!!

10. Blogging Basics 101! I’m sure you’ve all heard of this by now! It is a great help to those of us who are new to blogging or those who need a refresher! Shannon and Chilihead came up with this brainchild! They are so clever!!!

11. Motivation Moments! I’m trying to shed some pounds…so is she! And she has this great site to keep us motivated. I’m checking in with my stats and so are others! She also has another blog here!

12. Air Force Family! Oh, she loves to read!!! And look at her beautiful daughter! She is also a very new read for me, but I love her book reviews!

13. Karen! She has a precious little boy and I absolutely love the colors in her house! This girl is so not afraid of color and it is beautiful! She even plays Twister with her son!

So, I really need to get all of these women on my bloglines so I don’t have to go to each site. Cause you all know how much time that takes! Thanks for stopping by and Have a great day!!!
