Attitude of Gratitude...

Today I am thankful for: husband-- he loves me loads. No matter what size I am, makeup or none, heels or flats..he always tells me I'm beautiful! kiddies-- they extend more grace than I deserve.
...A Sunday morning with my hubby home!! -- most Sunday mornings I am by myself, but today, Mike did not have worship, nor did he have to work!! coke -- pure joy each time I drink it..!
...sleep -- what's the saying? " You don't know what you've got till it's gone"? 'nough said!
...blessings -- Mike's belt broke. God blessed him with a brand new one, FREE. From a little hindu woman. God is SO GOOD!!
...neighbours -- God has blessed us with great neighbours, and we love them to bits.
...water -- @ 11:00 p.m. I am now going to enjoy a nice HOT bath!!!!

School Again....

Year # 2 for the Lockwood household...
Although, we were quite excited for Hannah as she was getting a new teacher, and a favourite friend Kaleb (our neighbour) was joining her this year, there was still a bit of nervousness as we didn't want to endure a year like the last.
After a VERY EVENTFUL morning (post to come), we all set off for school for 1:00.

Hannah was very excited to go...she was actually normal--talkative and outgoing, not sad, quiet and sullen as she was last year at school time--she even "forgot" to kiss me goodbye as she ran into the playground...(I did get my kiss as we went inside to see her classroom).
She had a great first day and there was only one person with a few tears---Poor Isaiah!!
Thank you Lord for blessing us this school year--and allowing my big girl to be the person you designed her to be!!
