thankful: day 15

i am thankful for the home we have.  even when we bought it, it wasn't the house i wanted.  but, it was the first house that lee wanted and i could live with.  we have been here for almost 10 years and we have made it a home.  it isn't huge and the boys share rooms, in fact until just recently all the boys shared one room.  it keeps us warm in the winter, cool in the summer and full of love.  we have a table full of food every night.  we have many things we are blessed with and much to be thankful for.  i am thankful we have made this house a home.


thankful: day 14

i am thankful for the bible study group i'm in and for the renew group that just ended.  i have been wanting to grow in my religious knowledge and these two groups have been a great way to do that.  i have learned so much from both of these groups and am grateful.  many times people ask me questions, especially my own children.  it seems that for some of them if i knew the answer i have forgotten it.  and, i guess because of my age i want to be able to answer them and know that i can't use the excuse that i didn't ever learn it for long.  i have to take my education into my own hands.  and with these two groups i am doing just that.
