I am thankful:
~ for the one who made me a Mama 23 years ago.
How is my baby boy so grown? It was fun to celebrate him, and feast on his consistent annual menu of choice: crescent chicken, sweet potato fries with homemade ranch, and confetti cake.
~ for more good baseball. (And is it ok if I’m also thankful that the end of the season is in sight?)
~ for my favorite Farmer’s Market salad from Piada Italian Street food. Even if I almost had to share it…
~ for an amazing morning with Sawyer the Warrior representing Gold Network of East Texas at the Annual LukeStrong Race in Palestine.
It’s such a special event, honoring the brave children fighting cancer and their families. I met some incredible people and left with wet eyes and a full heart. Sawyer had a blast playing games and shooting Nerf guns, and proudly told everyone all day what he had had for breakfast: 2 1/2 donuts and a snow cone. Love going to these events with my amazing miracle boy.
~ for a lovely day in Carthage swimming and being blessed by Gina and Justin. They outdid themselves, BBQing the most delicious chicken, accompanied by a tasty salad and the most decadent array of desserts. They spoiled us!
~ for a lovely low-key Mother’s Day with my Loves. A ZINGER of a Sunday sermon, Rounders for lunch, and then more swimming for the kids. I’m so blessed.
~ oh, and one more thing…
Stay tuned. Adventure awaits. And I have a feeling it’s going to be a wild ride…
Thanks for giving thanks with me!
