Thankful Thursday - 5/20

Five things I'm thankful for this week:

1. My 5 yr old, Cici graduated from preschool yesterday. It was a wonderful event! I'm happy and proud, but it's bittersweet this end to the preschool yrs, as next year I'll have both girls in school full time.

2. My 9 yr old, Gigi had her Spring musical Tuesday night and she did a great job as narrator. I'm happy and proud of her.

3. I wrote my book proposal! I may not ever need it (sigh), but I wrote it, so I'm ready for the "next step" in the pathway to publication.

4. A coffee date with my friend Sue J tomorrow. Our last outing sans kids until next September. (We really should get a sitter over the summer and go out for coffee one day. We always say we will, but never do).

5. A friend took both my girls on Sunday from 2-7!! Hubby & I spent the afternoon together and went out to dinner. A very rare treat.

Hebrews 12:28 -- Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.

What are you thankful for this week?

One of my preschool students is the youngest of 6 kids. I overheard his mom telling someone that his graduation tonight is tearing her up more than the fact that her daughter is graduating from high school! Leaving preschool is very emotional for the kids and the parents. Even though I've been waiting for this school year to be over, it's going to be hard to say good-bye to the kids tonight. I've just needed it to be over because it has been an emotional school year for me since my miscarriage in September. I need the break.

Glad your older daughter did such a wonderful job narrating!

Have a terrific day and have fun with Sue J. tomorrow!
