Gratituesday November 22nd

Today is Gratituesday and I don't have to think a whit about what to be thankful for this week. Our son Daniel came home from Harding University on Saturday evening. He had been gone for three very long months. This was the first time he has been away for more than a week. The entire house erupted in shouts of joy when the truck pulled into the driveway with our son. Everyone ran outside and shared in hugs and laughter.

When we first moved into our daughters home she had just had baby #5, baby Noah. Noah took a special shine to Daniel from the beginning. We all wondered what would happen when Noah saw Daniel for the first time after being gone so long. No worries, Noah knew exactly who he was and has been seen riding on top of Daniel's shoulders the past 2 days.

This morning after breakfast I came back down stairs to our apartment and I could hear Daniel playing his guitar. It has always brought me peace when I watch Daniel play, whether it is a guitar, a piano or just singing. It gives me great joy.

We get him for a week before he heads back to Arkansas. I am so thankful our "man-cub" is back home with us. What a huge blessing.
What are you thankful for?

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
