thankful thursday

We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater.
II Thessalonians 1:3

one - reaching new milestones - Yeah baby, it's time for a two-wheeler (with training wheels of course)! It seems like only yesterday that my babies were learning to walk....look at them now!!! Oh, and yes, that's Miss O's $1 yardsale bike...with an $8 investment for training wheels. Nice ride for nine bucks, right? Now we just need a super cute basket and some streamers for the handle bars. Oh, come on, you know I'm right. :o)

two - external motivation - I enjoy reading but often don't take the time to enjoy a good book(for myself...I read to the girls all the time, but grown-up books are different). Well, thanks to Rebekah of Sunnybrook Farm Designs and her Summer Reading Groupies, I have checked out a book for myself this week. I am a fan of John Grisham and I've read all of his books except his non-fiction book entitled The Innocent Man. I'm pretty excited about it. Here's what it says on the inside cover..."If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." Oooohhhh. I can't wait to dive in! I'll read something lighter for my next book:o)

three - my husband - the mate God chose for me, the best friend I could have ever hoped for, our faithful provider, the most wonderful Daddy in the whole wide world, the funniest person I have ever met or will meet, the smartest person I know, a genius really, but humble about blessed I blessed the girls are to have such a wonderful Daddy!

That seems like a serious book, indeed! I picked a serious one for my second one, as well, and keep wondering what I was thinking??

Your family is darling :)
