Thankful Thursday

Thursday, August 6, 2009

We're moving tomorrow! And though I am very thankful for our new home, I am even more thankful to finally have my sweet love back!!! He has been working non-stop for the past week, painting, fixing closets, re-doing faulty electrical work, etc. in our new home. The kids and I miss him!!!
Of course, the kids and I have been helping out some as well, but some of us have been more helpful than others (and I'm afraid that I'm not necessarily in that "more helpful than others" group!! lol). I was watching Adam and realized that at 10 years old, he is definitely more knowledgeable about carpentry than I am. I'm so thankful that Adam has been able to work with David so much over the past few years. What a gift of time together! I wish that I had a camera with me so that I could have taken a video of Adam in his mask, all dirty, singing "Grace like rain, falling down on me..." at the top of his voice. He is growing into such an incredible young man.

I'm also thankful today, for our soon-to-be new neighbors. You can "visit" one of these three families from our church by visiting their blog at They've been such a help in our moving process already. Ethan (their 12 year old) has been working hard, along with Uncle David, Adam and others.

There are so many other things that I am thankful for, but right now, I had better get back to packing up the last of our things. I'm thankful to have had this little break!
