I Love Thursday #260 Blessings Plenteous
This is the 260th post of things we love for the week. We post each Thursday along with LeeAnna from Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share every week – be sure to check them out as you will surely find something to inspire you. “From the fullness of His grace, we have all received one blessing after another.” John 1:16
Gratitude begets gratitude. Don’t you think this is true? The more you look for things you like and want to share in these weekly posts, the more you find to share. Some weeks, I have so many things to share that I have to decide what can wait for a week. Life can be an ongoing celebration and I hope it is for you!
Yes, kind of! Addison now calls Auntie Sue and asks if she can please come over. She knows that even if Daddy won’t bring her (them), we will come and get them. They are kind of the boss at our house as far as what activities are done, but nothing unsafe. They are loved and spoiled but not to the point of being rotten. There is a difference!
Chatty Rose! Continuing the chatty Cathy theme from last Thursday, where I admitted that I am, indeed, a chatterer. When I saw this meme, I absolutely knew they were referring to me. My teacher did move my desk next to her desk once . . . and I did chat with her. It wasn’t quite like, “So, what’s up with you” but it was probably close. More along the lines of, “What are we doing for art today?” I understand that I have a few chatty friends who read the blog – we need to chat in person sometime. Truly.
Treasures! Having grown children is something we do not have . . . but we have grown nieces and nephews. Sadly, some we rarely see while others are nearby. We are blessed to see several on a nearly weekly basis, but it’s a real treat to have one-on-one time with them (or two-on-one, if you will). We consider ALL of our nieces, nephews, and peeps as treasures. They are, indeed, a beautiful part of our lives.
Our littles . . . had a great first week of January. Addison had her “official” 5-year-old picture taken on her Ballerina quilt. While Andrea was taking the pictures, she lined up all three kids and managed to get them all looking at her. They are so good at saying, “Cheese”! I had to include a brotherly love photo. They do look alike but oh so different, too! Colt and Maverick were not happy about Momma going back to work (Momma either). Colt quickly rallied with a snow fort built in the front yard with his Dad. Who cares if it takes Momma an extra hour to get home when Dad plays outside?!
Earlier in the week, we had a snow day called with very little snow. Dominic wondered why on earth he couldn’t go to school with no snow. Mom said, let’s go play in the backyard. That appeased him as he was very happy to slide and swing. Maverick doesn’t care to play in the snow yet but he says, have a wonderful Thursday! We all wish you a good week.
