Last night I was very thankful for canned soup, instant potatoes, pre-cooked ground beef, frozen green beans & corn. Also very thankful my mom had the beef and green beans.

I had been posting my blessings ... at night, in bed, from my Ipod. Problem was- they were not posting- but saving somewhere. I had done this for a few weeks. When I realized what had happened I just mentally acknowledged what I was thankful for each night.
Now that we are settling back into our school routine, I think I can start it back up- Here we go.

I saw a Grandpa yesterday. I was picking up my car after having some repairs. I overheard several phone calls made by this Grandpa. We were in a small waiting room. I could not help but overhear! The first was to his wife. He talked politely and endearing to her. Then he made a call to his daughter. First he spoke to his Grandchild, then to his daughter. He talked so cute to his Grandchild, and then so nice to his daughter. He needed a ride, and asked if he could take her to lunch.

I loved hearing this man. I was thankful that I married the kind of guy who will grow into this kind of Father and Grandfather.
