Thankful Thursday (Times Three)...

It's that time again!!!

Thursday is the day I post about three things that I am most thankful for in my life. So here we go for this week...

1. Judy Edwards....

We met at school three years ago and I convinced her to leave the guidance department and be my secretary. Not only is she the BEST secretary in the entire world, but has become a VERY good friend and the BEST prayer partner anyone could ever ask for. We have gotten to be so close and can share anything with one another. I can't thank GOD enough for sending me this guardian angel.




2. Time to get away...

The DH and I are traveling to New Orleans on Friday to witness the marriage of two of our closest friends. We are looking forward to the festivities, but also the time to get away, stay at a nice hotel, and relax for a couple of days. Boy do we NEED this :)


This is the DH and I with Blaise and Julie at their couple shower.


3. A beautiful home...

I REALLY love the house that we live in. This might sound funny...but I thought my ideal home was in Texas and I was really devastated when we moved to Florida because we had to rent a home. Not that there is anything wrong with renting, but I like to decorate, paint, plant flowers, etc. and nothing ever felt like OURS while we lived in that home for 2 years. I'll never forget the day we found our new home...David had set up an appointment with our realtor to visit some homes on a Thursday. The night before was Valentine's Day and the DH was taking me to Daruma...a japanese hibachi restaurant. Unfortunately (or furtunately) our local Daruma was booked for the night. So the DH made reservations at the Daruma about 20 minutes away. Little did we know that the VERY next day, the DH would find the house we had been waiting for a mere MILE from this Daruma!! Coincidence? I don't think so. For the past year, we have painted the outside of our home, painted the inside of our home, landscaped, decorated, and spent a lot of time swimming in our POOL!! I am so thankful for this beautiful home and the wonderful neighborhood we live in.



FYI...this is an OLD picture of our house....actually it's the first picture we took of the house after moving in.


What three things are you most thankful for this Thursday???
