Once again we have so much to be thankful for. With each reading of the book "One Thousand Gifts" I am finding myself so short on the simple things in life that I need to be thankful for. God is using this book to show me the MANY, MANY things I have to be so thankful for.

Though I am "ALWAYS" thankful for my family I must say that these four little grands give me all the more reason to be thankful for LIFE!  

I am thankful for being able to watch family gather together on Easter Sunday and the little ones and the grown ones hunt for eggs....oh do we take these little times for granite.

Thankful to watch the children play.

THANKFUL To see the face of my oldest granddaughter as she opens her birthday gift only to find that she has her very on sewing machine!

Thankful to be able to have a little Princess party for all these little girls and listen to their giggles and see the smiles on their faces.

Thankful that God gave has given me the opportunity to witness the birth of all 4 of my grandchildren. This one is my the 4th! Hope to have more one day!

Thankful for my one and only grandson that got to play basketball this season with this YMCA! So much fun watching him! And...he was one good little basketball player too! (not that I am be partial or anything)

Thankful for my lovely three daughters! (in which the one on the right is back to being blond) (YEAH)
Cannot imagine what I would do without them! During the teenage years I often wondered what I was going to do with them!!!Even with the cost of clothes, makeup, hair, proms, weddings and etc.....I am so THANKFUL God blessed me with daughters!

Thankful for my nephew that will graduating from High School this Friday night. So proud of him and the young man that he has become.

Thankful for a fatherinlove and motherinlove that is a perfect example of what TRUE LOVE is! Not just to one another but to their family as well. A couple that has nurtured parenting, grand-parenting and now-great-grand-parenting with love, truth, fun and joy! These two have been the perfect example of what FAMILY is. Some would call them THE IN-LAWS....I call them a BLESSING!

I have so much to be thankful for. What about you?

Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  6. What a blessing to have witnessed the births of your GRANDbabies. That was the plan for me, too...but our daughter had to have C-sections with each of hers so I didn't get to go into surgery with her because she had to be put to sleep. She has rods in her back due to scoliosis and couldn't have an epidural. Love all your thankful for!!!

  12. Hi Cindy!

    What sweet grand kids! I see that they all have the 'blond gene'...

    I wonder if your next one will be another boy, to keep the first one company, as I am thinking that he could use some reinforcement, lol.
