Attitude of Gratitude...

After a very long week, and little time to give to my blogging world...I am now making time to list my blessings for the week..It makes me feel good just thinking about some of these things!!!

Today I am thankful for...

1. sunshine-I absolutely love the sun. Makes me feel refreshed and alive...I LOVE LOVE LOVE it..
2. my hubby--when my dad had his accident this week, Mike sprang into "mikeness" and took charge, going to my dads side and making sure my dad was okay, getting all the goods out of dads car, phoning me often to keep me informed, and the list goes on... when my car up and quit in the middle of the road on Thursday, he came right away, dropped me off at work, and took care of the car---with the kids!! he is so good in "crisis" and makes me so proud to be part of him..
3. my parents--they are the most giving people I know...Mom's taking us to Great Wolf Lodge on Tuesday (for the grandkids ofcourse!!)--she's paying!! Dad brought over some plants and had my toes done--he paid!! They are always giving to us in some way...
4. God's grace--I had some questionable customers today... one man who made me get almost on the floor for some wire b/c he didn't want to get it...(**reminder..bending is near impossible lately!!) one lady who thought I should carry out her water jugs..and the list goes on...
5. dill pickle dip--need I say more?? YUMMY!!
6. dandelions--not a weed in our house.. pretty flowers picked just for mommy!!
7. bleach--such a great product to clean out VERY dirty bathtubs (when the kids decided it would be so much fun to not only play in the big mud pit, but start throwing the mud and wiping it on each other...!! I so wish my camera was working....)
8. my friends the Halls--who also shared their hostas with us!!
9. anticipation--the count down is on until Team Lockwood gets bigger by one...and the anticipation is so real...
10. Love--in all shapes and sizes..most of all God's love.

Amy,

You are a blessed woman.
You know, I too have many gorgeous
yellow bouquets of dandelions in my house. In my house they are flowers, in the yard they are weeds. I can never turn down flowers from a princess..
