Thank You Thursday

1. Thank you for the little things.  Last night Lauren was playing waitress.  When I told her to spell 'spicy' how it sounded to her, she gave up and decided to write the names of a few first ladies on her government place mat, her words.  {smile}

  • Rosalynn Carter
  • Betty Ford
  • Helen Taft
  • Spicy
2. I've been checking my e-mail all day praying there is nothing in my inbox from Abby's teacher, or worse her principal.  Her behavior was so deplorable this morning she refused to get on the bus, called her mother a dumb ass, and needed to be escorted to her classroom by a very angry mom. I'm thankful I haven't been contacted to attend to her bad behavior. {Schools not over yet.... fingers crossed!}

3. I'm thankful for the guys in the check-out at the commissary this morning. Our cashier was a wise-cracking Vietnam vet with missing fingers, and our bagger was a clown who relentlessly picked on Lauren convincing her part of his arm was plastic.  After the morning I had, these two much appreciated!

4. Thank God for spontaneous Lauren moments.  We got home from the commissary and I began unloading the car, only to return to the garage to find this....

"You just need a little Lauren help," she told me.
And with that she helped her mom carry in groceries.

5. I'm thankful I am making some use out of my days off. I haven't accomplished nearly as much as I would have liked by this point in the week, but I'm accomplishing nonetheless.
