Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James 1:27

Thankful Thursday!!

Today I am thankful for my son, daughter and hubby!!
I am thankful I am able to stay at home and be such a big part of their lives because I did not get to do that when Emma was a baby until she was 3.5. I am thankful that we are homeschooling and doing Tot School with Noah even though some days like yesterday are beyond describable. I was sick. Emma had co-op so I though that I would have a break but after I picked her up and we got home I hear this big thud and Noah starts screaming. Emma has pushed him off the sofa. I Asked her about it and she said she did not do it. Then I said well I hope you are telling the truth because God saw you. She then said that she meant to push him off. This hearts my heart!!Her punishment was no playdate that we had planned and no dance unless he earned it back!!  I am THANKFUL that Noah is OK and only has a quarter size knot and bruise and thankful that Emma told me the truth after knowing that God saw her!! By the way, Emma asked Jesus to be her Saviour on Sunday night!! That made my heart happy!! :) OK so on to more being thankful. I am thankful I am able to help in Noah's MDO class, be a  leader for Awana's, Be a co-leader for Girl Scouts, take Emma to co-op, dance, Gymnastics, Girlscouts, Dance, Church and etc.!! Yes I am busy but I am thankful that I am able to do all of that!! I am thankful for my husband who works hard for us, I am thankful for kids, I would do anything for another baby but I am so thankful for the 2 that I have!!  Most days things are GREAT but every once in a while there will be a day like yesterday!! I am THANKFUL there are more good than bad!!

So what about you? What are you thankful for?

Hope everyone has a blessed rest of the week and weekend! We will be celebrating my Mom's 50th b-day this weekend!!:)
