Thankful Thursday #257

This week I am Thankful for:

Youth Prayers
At the end of our HSM group, we went around & all the girls were talking about things we could pray for & they could just tell something was off with me... so I had prayed & said AMEN... & then one of the girls was like, HOLD UP EVERYONE - get back in this circle... & then she lifted up prayers for me & all that I'm going through in life. OH MY HEART. How precious is that?  These girls... I'll say it over & over, these girls are the biggest blessing in my life

Harvey Dent
I got home from work on Tuesday & was just so exhausted - literally didnt think I could keep my eyes open. I crawled into bed to just close my eyes for 10 minutes... that Harvey Dent is just the sweetest little nurse. Always has been. He curled up next to me & put his paw over me & next thing I know, he was twitching where he was asleep. Ricky came in & laughed that we were curled up together just snoozing away.  He is just a comfort to my heart.

Brother Progress
It's been a journey for my brother & this hospital stay.  But seeing him get better & seeing progress has been a big sigh of relief.  He's still got a path ahead but every step forward is a good one.

My husband is just the best. I had a really bad bad bad evening & my sweet hubby just wanted to let me know that he's always here for me. My biggest supporter.  I may have teared up when these were delivered to work.

Home at last
I know its been a mixed bag of emotions with my brother FINALLY getting home. His wife is taking on a lot of things that can be overwhelming when it comes to his health care right now & there's something to be said for a Nurses Button you can push & get what you need.  But, there really is no place like home. I know Tony is glad to be back in his own surroundings, seeing his girls every day & getting doggie snuggles - which lets face it, IS the best medicine there is.

Offers of help
I always say it & will continue to do so - in the hardest times of life, I am so thankful for the people that reach out to me & ask what they can do.  Need a ride?  Need a dinner?  Need horse help? Need prayers? All people who are fast to offer their services in helping wherever they can.  We are blessed to have friends that have that giving heart.

What good is happening in your week?

The weekend that my brother finally got to come home

Image result for january long month

Hello Monday.

Anyone else just shook over the horrible loss of Kobe Bryant yesterday?  I'm not a basketball fan but there's just big stars that come out of the game sometimes that you can't deny.  I think its just so sad to know he's a family man, & the loss of his daughter.  That poor family.

I know people pass away every single person & the loss of his life is no more sorrowful as the loss of everyone else on that helicopter - or anyone else that lost their life that day.  Accidents, sickness, tragedy.... I think when we see someone in such a public light loose their life - it really does bring close to home again that life is not guaranteed to finish another day.  We never know when our time will be up.  All the more importance to show us how we need to make sure we love every day, say the things we need to say.... lean in the faith of what God offers us when we accept Jesus as our Savior. 

Just a light shone again to remind us that we are all just a mist here in this world....

How's that for a start of a blog post?  Talk about a downer ... & on a Monday? 
I say we all just head out & grab some coffee, a book & get back in bed.... anyone with me?

My weekend was sort of filled with lots to do, but not really.

Friday, I ended up going to visit my brother. I was going to stay until his wife got up there but she had to do some other things with their girls & then she went to help my mom with some stuff at her house.  So I just stayed up there with Tony until visiting hours were technically over.  We even got to go on a walk shuffle up to the elevator & back.   It kinda worried me because he wasn't up to eating & just didnt feel all that great when I left.

Saturday, I got my Christmas stuff down - finally!  & kinda.... if you know me, when I saw I get Christmas down, that means everything is down.  Except the tree. Which this is just how it works in my home.  I get it all done & then its just up to Ricky to get the bare tree out to the barn.  I dont mind. I still turn on the lights on the tree - all in its bareness state - because I never tire of a nice, warm glow in the darkness of winter.  But it still stands & I reminded him - if its up by February 1... it WILL be decorated for Valentines Day.  I know that's just at the end of the week so I'll be cutting out my red construction paper hearts by Wednesday as either motivation for him to get it down... or for indeed a cute tree. We can turn the lights on the tree red, so yeah, I'm serious - I'll do it :)

Already looking for my motivation on what to do 

I had to run out & pick up a tote to put the new Christmas stuff we bought this year in & had a list that was growing for things at Target so ran down there.  I stopped in to visit my brother because I knew he was going to be super bummed he wasn't at his daughters basketball game when his wife & the other twin were there.  They kept sending him videos & updates & I know it tore at him even more when it went into TRIPLE overtime!!!! It may have been 4 times - I was loosing count.  But my niece's team won in the end! GO FC!

The good news of Saturday was that Tony was finally coming home. YAHOO!!! 2 weeks & 1 day in the hospital.  That was a doozy!  ... The bad thing is that he came home with a PIC line in for antibiotic treatments for awhile & a drain still in him from his last infection. So while he's home, I know he's still not feeling like himself & has a long journey still ahead of him.  He can still use all the encouragement & prayers.... please & thank you.

Sunday, the morning flew by & I had to run over & let Baby out to enjoy sunshine (FINALLY) & then off to HSM.  I hadn't seen my wonderful co-leaders since before the holidays!!!!  I was out, she was out & we've just kept missing each other. It was good to get the team back together.  Which meant we were at church SUPER late filling one another in on all the latest.  I love my Church sisters!

I stopped & picked up some lunch, got home & Ricky & I dug out a recliner for my brother to use that his friends came & picked up to take to him... & just had to do things around the house & BLINK - we're back at another week ahead. 

This is where it starts too - the long haul.  All the Holidays are now over till May... that's way down the line.  Time to buckle in & start planning all that PTO.

So tell me how your weekend was?

Will you be taking a vacation or time off before Memorial Day?

Are you a Kobe Bryant fan?

Are you still having a mild or a wintery winter?

Favorite Gum

If you have ever asked me if I want a piece of gum, you'll usually hear me say, "NO - its from the devil" - LOL... but have you ever read the ingredients on it? YIKES.
So I may need to try this because its natural & to help the environment, it doesnt have the plastic wrappers too! NICE!! 

Favorite Gift Wrap

HOW COOL IS THIS??? You use this to wrap your gift, but then you can water the wrapping paper & it will actually GROW!!!! How fun is this? I think it'd be so fun to wrap a kid's gift in this too & let them have fun with it.

Favorite Towel Rack

I actually like this more than the big bar that has one big towel. This would be easier to change out the hand towels after guests & also fun to be able to change out the colors or have holiday/seasonal towels out.  

Favorite Bath Mat

Bamboo - give your bathroom a spa like feel

Favorite Yarn Project

crochet scrap blanket

This is supposed to be a project for scrap yarn.
So beautiful!

Favorite Kitchen Towel

Favorite Car Decoration

OK ... this is adorable hanging from your rear view mirror

Favorite Make up Brushes

This is kinda funny for me just because Ernie Walker LOVESSSS to jump up to my dresser & get my make up brushes & carry them around.  I have to find them  &then clean them & wait for them to dry.... it gets old. So this is a perfect set of brushes for me to use.
