Thankful Day 7

This is my final day of posting my thankful list. I should have posted yesterday, but it was a crazy day.

Thankful for my friends in my life, whether they are family, close friends, online, of just occasional.

Thankful for the book of Proverbs and the Holy Spirit wispering wisdom from those verses when I need them most.

Thankful for when I peek in the crib and Wyatt is sweetly asleep with both hands raised over his head.

Thankful for when Makensie gives me a toothless grin. She lost 4 baby teeth all right in a row and is still working on getting the adult teeth in.

Yesterday was the day I was running errands. Nothing yesterday morning went as planned, Wyatt wanted to nurse more, the kids weren't getting their chores done and were fighting constantly which required many correction sections by the time we left he house it was 1:15 and when we got in the van all 3 of them started complaining that they were hungry. And they should be, as crazy as it sounds, I completely forgot about lunch in the midst of all the chaos. So we went grabbed tacos and they ate in the van. We finally made it to WalMart, our one stop store and while there I bumped into a lady I worked with 7 years ago. She has now adopted 2 litttle ones, is a stay home mom, here in town and I hadn't ran into her this whole time. She was always a joy. She mentioned that she has no friends with little ones and isn't involved in any mom's groups. Of course we exchanged numbers and it was a true blessing that God had us on the same isle at the same time. I need to learn to not stress out as much, had all gone smoothly and we had gotten out the door at my planned time, I wouldn't have seen her and since it has been 7 years, it could have been another 7.

Isn't it funny how God puts little things like that, so unexpected, but so delightful, in your life? I'm glad for both of you that God is kind of serendipitious like that! :)

Renewed friendships are wonderful! I hope you both are able to revisit and enjoy each others company/conversation again!!

I love your thankful blogs. I could relate to getting kids ready to go run errands and I LOVE the one stop 24 hour Wal-Mart experience. (I actually like to go in the night when no one is with me... haa)

How awesome to run into that lady you worked with. God has a way of doing things like that.

I always say I'm taking "the scenic route" when things don't go as planned. hmmmm usually!
