A Thankful Week

Well, I had a post all ready and it was about my Monday night, but then I forgot to push post, so it got erased. Oh well. :)

Monday night was such a great night. I ended up going to Panera to help some basketball girls with their math and drank a delightful cup of hot chocolate. The girls did a lot of math problems and I helped every now and again. It was fun to get to help out. I took pictures to post so they will be coming.

This week, I've been so thankful for my body, my mind and my ability to walk and talk. I have watched students with disabilities all week and the more I watch them, the more challenged I am. They are content. They really are. As I watched them with their peer helper, I was brought to tears with how often I am discontent with my lot in life. I have been so thankful this week that God made me the way he did. Able to walk and talk. And if he ever decided to take those gifts away, I only pray I'd be just as content as the students I've watched this week.

I am excited for Thanksgiving. It will be a good day of relaxation and of being with my family!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

My new house

Well, after a long week, things are coming together. I LOVE MY NEW HOUSE! This morning (or was it last night) I prayed that it would be a place where many people come and feel welcomed, and see Jesus.

Pictures will come soon, but I have so enjoyed waking up and the peacefulness of a neighborhood. On Sunday I rode my bike around, and loved hearing the shouts of all the little ones playing outside. Sunday night I sat out on my deck and loved the breeze. I'm going to love fall and spring!!

My parents have been such a blessing...helping me get everything moved in and working to organize and teach me stuff about being a homeowner.

Yesterday I pulled my trash out for the very first time. WOW. I felt like a grown up.

All for now...
