Being Thankful

I have been thinking alot lately about my family and how thankful I am for all of them. I enjoy the time spent with them and cherish the moments. I was blessed to be raised around my grandparents and I have such fond memories of all of them. I think because I was reared close to them it gives me a different perspective towards "senior citizens". I hate it when they are mistreated or not given the respect that they deserve. And now having said all of that let me say that I hope everyone has a wonderful week. There was slight cold front that moved in today and we are in much need of some rain. I need some extra time to sew a few things but I am too tired after softball practice.  I worked in my booth at Junktique yesterday and I just found out this week that the other store "MiMi's Cottage" is going out of business. Micky the owner is retiring so I am going to be moving my things. I wish I could find a good store to put my baby things to sell. I'm looking for a place but so far have not found one.
Take care and God Bless.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patty's Day to everyone. We are in full swing with softball season and the weather is so nice right now here in Texas. I really like warm weather much more than the cold weather. We have had a very cold and wet winter this year but spring is just around the corner. Our school was out for spring break this week and I have enjoyed every minute of it. We went camping on the lake for several days and it was so nice to sit around the fire and enjoy family and friends. What could be better than that? We shared stories and had lots of laughs. My mom and dad came one afternoon and brought shrimp gumbo for us and then we played 42 dominoes and had a blast. I'm always amazed how fast the school years fly by and this year is no different. Haley will graduate in May from the University of Texas. She has been accepted into TWU and she is excited about that new venture in her life. God is so good and I have so much to be thankful for. I thank him everyday for his amazing grace and mercy. As soon as softball is over I plan to get back into that sewing room. I had a few St. Patrick Day orders but things have been a little slow lately. Have a wonderful weekend and take care.
