Thankful Thursday

It's been sooo long since I've done TT, but I think know it could do my heart some good. So here we go...

I am thankful for...

... Eli. We just celebrated his 2nd birthday. He's a lot of work but such a joy. And to watch him learn and grow and know that I am a part of it and good is coming out of our days together makes my heart glad.... Hannah. She is my sweet baby doll. She is soooo good and a precious part of our family. We're all overwhelmed with her cuteness and sweetness when we look at her.... an afternoon out with my hubby last Saturday. That was MUCH needed, and I'm looking forward to getting out again this coming weekend! (though I'm not sure what we're planning)
... flowers! I love 'em! Last week we went to Buttonwood Farm for ice cream and the sunflowers were in bloom!
... one of my friends' new baby! And the many more that on their way SOON!! And I can't wait to move back "home" so that I can see them!

... our time in CT. We only have a few short weeks left until we move (to Iowa hopefully, though no job lined up at this point). We've made some great friends here who will be missed. Our children were born here. And we've had time to grow as a couple.

... that Kevin has his resume done. It's such a slow process but we're plugging along!

... Kevin being such a hard worker while working 12-hour night shift (for Navy). He doesn't get much sleep since we're a little too anxious to have him up with us during the day, but he is such a trooper about it.

... my camera. I've been so ungrateful about it lately, wanting to move up to this camera so I can get shots on the first couple tries instead of the 100th and be able to do more photography work. But still, I can't imagine not having the photos that we do have. What a precious way to hold on to memories.

... this moment. Both kids are asleep. The house is quiet. I am alone while Kevin's at work. And Eli's sound machine is soothing me with the gentle rhythm of ocean waves. And there's nothing I feel like I need to do right now. I can just. sit. and. be.

So with that, I close, and bid my dear friends a good night! Many blessings to you!

I love your new look! The kids have grown and you all look so beautiful! God has been good---IS good all the time. I have missed seeing your sweet face and the sweet Eli and Hannah! I hope that one day when she is a big girl she can look back on all these sweet bloggity pages and see all her great mommy has done! I would love to get a real hug!
My youngest daughter will bless our home with our 5th grandson in September. AND THAT IS ALL. All we get. So I could really really use a baby girl to love every now and then! My boys are sweet though. One of the girls that graduated when I was working at the HighSchool has given me Nana privileges with her wee girl! So---if I EVER get to Nashville....that will be fun!
Oh well...God knows what He is doing. I won't question Him.
Love you Sarah girl!
