Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday



Yesterday was our youngest little man's birthday.

How doesn't like a birthday with a 3 year old.  Well it is really hard when papa works out of town.  I am so thankful for his new job (yup that is my thankful item)  The Lord blessed just when all seemed so hopeless here.  It is hard when he is gone all week long but so many people are out of jobs now and so to have this job is just amazing.  

I am also so proud of our children as we have had birthdays without papa here and they have done so well.  We celebrate the monday after the birthday so papa can be here with us.  And they haven't complained or whined about it at all.  I am so glad that they just want the family to be together to celebrate even if it isn't on the "proper" day.  Gives me hope for those times we will be trying to get together as a family once they are married.  Day's don't matter, family togetherness does!!

Amen! to that. The days don't matter - it is the togetherness that's important.
Great post.

I second Mrs. B's sentiments :) I know there are some out there that would have an all-out hissy fit, but I have a feeling your children have their hearts in the right places when it comes to the stuff that really matters :)

Happy birthday to your little one. I am glad to know you and your kids are doing well without their dad on each other ones birthday. Sad to hear he can't come and I'm sure he's feeling the same way too. Oh well, wherever he is, its important. May God bless you and family always!
