Thankful Thursday - 9/3

5 things I'm thankful for this week:

1. I am thankful that I have an opportunity to write my Tips for Moms. I love the chance to expand my writing. Have you visited my new site? Hop on over and see it. If you like it, subscribe and you will get my Tips for Moms every time its published. Thanks for checking it out!

2. I am thankful that several folks have new writing jobs because they liked the Tips for Mom and applied for a writing position at Examiner like I did. Are you looking to expand your writing and earn some pocket change at the same time? Visit and apply - but please make sure and click that examiner Kelly Combs referred you. You may get a new job, and I get a bonus for the reference. Email me with questions at

3. I am thankful for a trip to VA Beach yesterday! Although it was COLD, WINDY & RIPTIDES, the kids still had fun playing in the sand (sweatshirts over swimsuits!), and we walked the boardwalk, and spent time with friends. Not perfect, but fun just the same.

4. I am thankful that today we attend Open House at school to meet teachers and see classrooms. Especially important for my little one entering kindergarten.

5. I am thankful for YOU my readers for always encouraging me with your precious comments. You make my heart feel good. Thanks!

Sweatshirts in August. Can't quite wrap my mind around that one!

I was thinking about your kindergartner the other day! Is she excited? How's mom doing?

We love Virginia Beach. Jim and I used to stay at The Founder's Inn...before cherubs arrived. :) (last time we were there I was pregnant with Joshua)

Glad you had fun! I like sweatshirts on the beach....kind of exciting and fun!

Our Open House/Meet The Teacher is tonight, too. The kids are enjoying a pajama day today (me too). Then hair cuts. Then to Open House.

Kisses to your Kindergaren Kid!

Love you, friend!

Hey Kelly,
It's great to stop by for a visit...I was on a mini-vacation and have been away from my computer.

I am thankful to have spent time this weekend at the beach to celebrate my in-laws' 50th anniversary, and to have a last hoorah before school started.

BTW, your writing gig sounds great. Thanks for the heads up about it.

I've come over from Thankful Thursday at Sonya's. I've seen your comments on a lot of blogs so decided to come check your out. You are a very busy person. I especially like your thank you for going to Virginia Beach. You must live nearby to be able to go for a day. My oldest daughter lives in Virginia Beach and my husband and I are plannng to go up the end of this month for our 47th anniversary and spend a few days with her.
