Thankful Thursday


This week, I have great things and happenings to be thankful for.
We are again blessed with a handsome little grandson. Sarah and Jet named their beautiful child, Daniel Josiah. The name sounds blessed to me, already.
We've reached a BIG 40!!! I still can't believe we've lasted this long. Hubby and I are both grateful for the surprise (I am still thinking how I could have missed any clue) dinner party that our children organized.
I am thankful that people who are special in our hearts came to celebrate with us.
Although I will miss my students' antics, I am thankful that I have one more day to go before I hit the vacation trail again. I don't have to sleep early so I will wake up early. I don't even have to worry about what to wear for the 'morrow.
I am thankful for my graduating students most of whom are the first in their families. May they set a successful trail for those who are to follow them.
But most of all, I am grateful that our dear friend, Malu, had a 2nd successful kidney transplant last Monday at CSH. Her first was 14 years ago which gave her 9 good years. We hope and pray this one will be-friend her forever.
I am thankful for the bloggers that make me think, cry, smile, touch, feel, grow........
