Thankful Thursday

Tonight was kindergarten orientation at #1 and #2's new elementary school. Mr. Brick was unable to come, so I sat in the brand new cafeteria by myself. Well, alone with at least 80 other parents ;)

The principal started welcoming all of us and I was suddenly very verclempt.

This was really happening.

My kids are really at the new school, the only school I would move for.

We really sold our house.

We are really moving into a brand spanking NEW house.

Several very sweet friends really work at this school.

It is really happening.

We have been praying about this, for this, around this, because of this for over 4 months. I realize that isn't very long in God's time, but it has been a big big deal in our lives and it is really coming to pass.

I can't exactly put into words my emotions. {Yeah, I know that is what it seems I am trying to do here on this blog} I know that God's answer isn't always yes. And often it is not in our timing. But this time it is a big Y.E.S. and it is right on time!

And I'm thankful.

What are you thankful for?
Happy Thursday~

I am thankful for friends that love me at my best and at my worse, in good times and bad, and in the mundane and the mountain top moments and all that is in between.

All my love,

I am thankful that my son will join your kiddoes there next year. I am thankful my husband is alive and well after getting rolled over in his truck. I am thankful I get to hang out with 140 great, awesome, crazy teenagers on a daily basis who keep me young.
