Thankful Thursday – Back from Vacation

  • I am so thankful for my wacky and wonderful family! We had a great time together on vacation and saw some pretty amazing things on our holidays. (I have not had time to edit the pictures yet, sorry!)

  • I am thank for my cousin Murray & his wife Deborah who put up with us for 5 days and I toured us around Post Falls and Spokane. We are so blessed to know them! I absolutely fell in love with their kids.

  • I am thankful for Barry’s Aunt in Calgary who we got to spend a few days with and my kids absolutely adore her.

  • I am thankful for Barry’s parents who let us stay with them for the last leg of our trip and that they are planning to make the 6 hour trip up from Edmonton for my Worship Concert & CD release party on Sept 21st.
  • I am so thankful that there was actually minimal amounts of arguing between my teenagers on our trip. They actually shared an mp3 player in the car for most of the trip!
  • I am so thankful I was able to relax and just dip my feet into the sand and take in all the beauty around me.

  • I am so thankful that God meets us exactly where we are!
  • I am so thankful for my own bed to crawl into after 2 weeks of sleeping in someone else’s beds. I love my bed!
  • I am thankful that my dogs missed me while I was gone and that my friend took such good care of them for me. (aside from one small mishap in which now my little dog could very well be pregnant again)
  • Lastly I am thankful for all of you who left such nice notes on my blog while I was gone. I feel so blessed that so many people actually missed me!
