Survival, small town living & a good horse brother! {Thankful Thursday #222}

This week I am Thankful For:
(05-13-19 to 05-19/19)

Baby OK
So I was out walking with my friend at a school track & got a phone call from my mom's neighbor. I held my breath because for him to call me, something had to be wrong.  I picked up the phone & he tells me, the miniature horse, Baby, is in his front yard - OUT OF THE FENCED AREA!!!! I couldnt get ahold of my brother - so called Ricky who got over there quick - I also got in touch with my mom who took out of the house.... & long story short.... WHEW - they were able to get Baby back in the barn.  We found a piece of the fence was down & we had no idea. She just walked right through it.  So much here to be thankful for!!!!  So awful to think of what COULD happen.  Just glad Baby is back home & OK

I told you - Baby sits in my mom's lap...
this was when we got her home... she was tired & REALLY needed a seat

So glad Cochese was freaking out too when Baby got out. His neighing is what got the neighbor's attention to look out & see her loose.  Good job Big Brother Cochese!!!!

Cards & Messages
I am so thankful for all the cards sent my way & text & messages sent to me on the 1 year anniversary of dad's passing.... I read some of them to my mom as well so she could feel your love.

Family Time to remember Dad
I mentioned this in Monday's post... but I really am glad we had more laughs than tears on the anniversary.  I know dad would have loved to be in the center of all the laughter & stories we told..... & I feel like he was in some way.

The view from our dinner with family... I looked out & said, "Say hi to dad everyone"

Beautiful day off
When we took off for the hard weekend, it turned out to be perfect weather - sunny & warm, but not hot.  It was just lovely.  Time to sit outside & enjoy the beautiful air & blue skies & pollen filled breeze ;)

Steven Curtis Chapman
Always love seeing my favorite singer.  Loved our seats too.  I picked these because I knew they were on the end & had leg room in front.  Plus, it wasn't TOO close. The front row, their knees were literally TOUCHING the stage & they had to look up the entire time.  I'm glad I got 5 rows back... it was perfect.

Parade Fun
It still is all the talk around our town on how cute & fun & lovely the local parade was.  I'd really love to see it grow & grow. That would be something fun to look forward to each year... or even every few years.

Lazy Sunday
There's not many Sundays where I just lay on the couch & dont do anything after church.... I really soaked up the "nothingness" of the day before going back to work.
"The Nothing"... giving me vibes from The Never Ending Story... who remembers that?

So tell me what good things are happening in your life
