I Am Thankful…

Today, I am thankful for these things…..

that Ray slept in later than he planned on;
that I got in some extra snuggle time with my man;
that we had cinnamon rolls for breakfast;
that I haven’t broken down in front of the boys today;
that Pastor John made a special trip to our house to give Ray a going away gift this morning;
that the Fall Festival at church was scheduled for today, it was a much needed distraction;
that the boys brought home plenty of chocolate from the Fall Festival;
that I was home in time from the festival to catch the FSU game = WIN!!;
that I didn’t cry every time someone hugged me or asked how I was doing today;
that we got some great family photos yesterday;
that Firehouse Subs is nearby and the fact that I didn’t have to cook at all today;
that Ray found Dylan’s baseball hat in his truck & took it out BEFORE he left town;
that we have great friends that have offered help in anyway they can;
that Ray will be home for Thanksgiving;
that this is not “the big one”;
that I have two boys that will snuggle up and watch Game 3 of the World Series with me tonight;
that Ray called 10 minutes after leaving to say that he missed me already;
that I had a few quiet moments to myself to cry.
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.” Psalm 118:1
