Thankful Thursday

~My heart is heavy as I visited with my 97 year old grandmother this morning for what could be our last visit here on Earth.  She has stopped eating and isn't doing well.  However, I am thankful that she is a believer and that we are assured that she will be dancing with Jesus when that time comes.

~Thankful Aidan had another snow day so that he & Alayna could visit my grandmother with me.  Alayna holds a dear spot in my gma's heart and was the only one who could get her to smile today.

~Thankful for God's continued presence and guidance in our lives.   We feel his hand ALL over the path we are on and can't wait to share it with you soon.

~Thankful to Lacey, Molly & Alicia who have answered my zillions of questions this week!

~Finally, I am thankful for the prayer warrior friends, prayer team and family that have lifted us up in the past month.

Alayna is loving working on opposites...has nothing to do with my thankful post but, I love this girl to pieces so thought I would include a couple pictures of her.
Here is her SAD face...

Oh don't worry she has the HAPPY face down too!
Now if that doesn't give me a warm heart on a snowy day I don't know what would.  =)

What are you thankful for this week?

What adorable children you have! It's hard when we feel our loved ones won't be with us for much longer... so glad you had time to spend with your grandmother. What a blessing to have such a nice age!
