Thursday Thanks. Helping #14.

Thursday was tip-toeing away from me and I was going to skip this post.

But I can’t ditch my Thanksgiving Chair. Not this week.

This week, I’m thankful for good news.

And for The Good News.

I’m grateful for a handy hubby, who can fix an oven all by himself (although, not gonna lie, I was kinda hoping for a new one. Oven, not hubby).

I’m thankful for truffle popcorn, gingerbread cookies and American honey.

I’m grateful that Tucker and I can finally be civil/laugh a little/almost enjoy getting through his spelling word sentences.

And, this week, I’m grateful for the skinny minutes that right-size you, when the universe puts you in your place. Have you ever been still in a moment where you felt appropriately small and, even so, you knew you were a worthy piece of the puzzle? A stitch in the pattern? I felt like that today.

Insta cliche, I know, but I couldn't resist the cloud carpet.

And how could I not be uber grateful for a sunrise on freedom?


Your turn. What are you thankful for today?

    Today I am thankful for friends. Bud and I have made some very good friends in the past few years. It is a gift from god to have people to laugh with and sometimes cry with and talk about life with. These past few weeks I have even witnessed the miracle of friends with Cole. Autism has robbed him of friends for so many years. He’s had classmates and teammates, but that’s not the same as having friends. I’ve spent years praying that God would teach him how to be a friend and make friends so he wouldn’t have to eat lunch alone anymore and he could enjoy being in the company of others. I went to Open House at the high school and was bombarded by Cole’s “friends”! Even their moms told me how their kids talk about Cole at home. He has “friends” that he eats lunch with and meet him at the football games and “friends” that are helping him to campaign for Homecoming King! The miracle of “friends” happened right under my nose when I wasn’t looking! Thank you, Lord, for “friends”!

      This made me cry with joy. Fingers and toes crossed for Cole!
