THANKFUL THURSDAY! I’m thankful for my children!
I’m thankful for:
-Their loving spirit, and the relationship we have with each other. Their teenage years are proving to be enjoyable.
-the opportunity to be their mother
-the pleasure of being their taxi driver & that they have places to go
-that the Lord supplies the gas $ to make that possible…however if it were possible to fit them, their friends & all the paraphanalia that accompanies them in a SMART CAR…I might consider getting one.
-interesting conversations with them that “boost my self esteem”…for example:
Daughter: “Mom, you don’t look like a nerd anymore.”
Mom: “Thanks? I think.”
Daughter(in an attempt to make it better): “Well…at least you used to be a CUTE nerd.”
Mom: “I wasn’t so cute. The really bad pictures…I keep hidden.”
It did cause me to think this thought: “Who you were…is not who you ARE. See yourself through the eyes of God…that’s the real you. Know that each day is a new beginning.” I believe this would minister to each person a different way…so I will leave off my commentary.
For Jessica(my daughter)…and this is still not the worst one…couldn’t bring myself to share them all yet:
