I am thankful:

1. for warmer weather yesterday so that the boys were able to go play outside together.

2. for sunshine on my shoulders as I tidied up the front porch.

3. for the sound of wind chimes through my bedroom window.

4. for the sparkle of snow when the sunlight gleams on it.

5. for seeing the beauty of the full moon casting it's glow upon drifts of white.

6. for unexpected meals brought over from friends.

7. for warm hugs from my beloved just when I need them most.

8. and for his compliment of "you look nice" as I'm putting dinner on the table yesterday evening.

9. for the happy sounds of Marcus whistling while he plays.

10 for my dear loving friend, a cup of tea, and warm conversation.

11. that Jayden is such a willing little worker... eager to keep his room neat and organized.

12. that Allan says "I love you, too, Momma" to me so many times a day, whether I say it to him first, or not!

13. for the cuteness of his little boy talk... especially that he says, "Huh, Mom?", after almost everything he says to me.

14. And for this wonderful award, given to me by my sweet friend Rebekah. If you have never stopped by her blog, please do so! It is called Rebekah's Beautiful Day... and it's just that, BEAUTIFUL!

So, this award is called the Lemonade Award and it is for blogs which have great attitude and/or gratitude.

Thank you so much for this and I'll try my best to live up to it as much as possible! : )

I would like to pass on this award to some of my favorite blogs that have these qualities...

1. White Oak Lane
2. Momma Bug's Blog
3. A different Drum
4. Such Things
5. Useful or Beautiful
