It's my granddaughter's 6th birthday today!
My daughter had a horrible week with both her and our granddaughter having the flu,
and then my daughter broke a tooth,
which is requiring a root canal.
After the week she had, I volunteered to host our granddaughter's birthday party for her.
So, it's been a full, busy, tiring, but happy Sunday.
All that to say, I'm sure you can understand if I'm not too wordy tonight.
Let's just dive right in to my weekly gratitude list.
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
I continue to count my thanks
piling up gratitude day by day
in my little green journal.
(and capturing some of my blessings via my camera or iPhone)
-watching the two oldest grands while their mama and daddy were out of town
-playing Scrabble with them
(My grandson tried to convince me that legomine is a word.
He explained that that when your room is full of Legos your mom says,
"You have enough Legos for a Lego mine!")
