Days 6 and 7

Nov 6
I am thankful for my kids having friends that they love to play with right in our neighborhood. When we lived in Connecticut, we had a great neighborhood of friends. Alot of kids around the same ages and play levels, parents who we could connect with and alot of fun and memories were had.
When we moved back to Ohio 16 months ago, we did NOT have that, we didn't know or trust our neighbors, the parents had no interests in what their kids were up to and so the kids were up to no good and not good for our kids. When we moved into our new house, we suspected that there would be alot of kids for ours to play with, but in the dead of winter, it's hard to make new friends!
The summer has been filled with playing with neighbors and I am so very thankful that my boys have some great friends to grow up with!

I am so thankful for Tyler. My first baby. I'm not sure how he got to be 7 years old, the time has flown by too quickly and I'd love for it to slow down. Tyler was my little buddy, not becoming a big brother until he was close to 3. When Adam was at sea for months at a time, it was me and Tyler by ourselves. Tyler took losing Grace so very hard and I am so glad that recently he is doing so much better. He is such a sweet boy and I am so proud of the little man he is becoming. He is so smart and creative and kind and I am blessed to be his mother!

  1. Thanks for your comment, I had to laugh at your Amelia Bedilia mention. I loved those books as a child and started to mention them in my post!
    I like your 30 days of thanks. My heart just breaks for you. Praying for you as you grieve! May the Lord wrap His arms around you, sweet mommy!
