Monday Chatter.


I hope you all had a nice weekend. Our internet
doesn't work very well, when it rains. Right now it
is working. I thought I would do a quick post.
I am still doing the Thankful Challenge.
One of the things I am most thankful for in this life
is my kids.
I hate to think what I might have been if not for them.
Now that most of them are all grown now. I am very
thankful for the relationship we have and for the
way they make me laugh.

They have not made me cry very much. If they have
it is because they have done something very nice. Or
they have made me so proud, I think my heart will explode.
They thought I needed an I Pod so they put their
money together and bought one for me for my birthday.

I have to be very careful as people I am so content with
their friendship I could spend most of my time with just them.
It is fun to hang out with people who get all of the same jokes,
who have read the same books and remember things the way I do.

I won't make this a long post just because I don't want
to make you sick, but I thought that when I think about
that many, many blessings I have received. Having the joy
and privileged of being a mother has been my greatest
gift in my life.

I am very, very thankful.

Have a lovely Monday.
