Thankful Thursday

This is a little late, but can it still count?

I actually feel really quilty that I'm so thankful for this.

My mom called me Thursday morning and said if I would meet her 1/2 way, which is about a 90 minute drive she would take all 3 of the oldest kids home with her until I come home next which will be this next week for the 4th of July. My 1st comment was, "Uhmm, I have a bible study tonight." Then after I had a chance to clearly see the opportunity as I was telling my kids for the umteenth time to quit fighting with each other, I realize what a gift she was offering plus it would be great Grandma time. So never had we packed so quickly, loaded the car and we were off.

I'm so thankful for a mom who loves her grandbabies so much and loves me so much and wants to help me. I'm thankful for some quiet time in the house with just the baby. I'm thankful I got to go to some yard sales. I'm thankful that I'll be able to work on some much needed projects.

Don't feel guilty, that's so great!

That is wonderful, and you are blessed- I often wish my mom would want to do the same. My parents are foster parents to 2 and adoptive parents to 3. They just don't have the time to spend with grandkids since they are raising their own. It saddens me sometimes but I am thankful that we live close enough that they can at least see their grandkids sometimes!

My parents just came with us on a mini-vacation, and two of our kids stayed in their hotel room. It was a treat! :-) I hope you got many projects done and some downtime, too. Just enjoy it while it lasts... And then you'll be so ready to get the little angels back. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

You really need to blog more often, so I can keep up with what you are doing!! :-)
Enjoy the books. See you later this week, if we reschedule the study. I'm not sure yet...
