Welcome to Thankful Thursday - March 7th, 2013

  For you created my inmost being; 
 you knit me together in my mother's womb.
 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; 
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
 Psalm 139:13-14

Morning Sweet Friends

How are you today??  I hope your
week has been one of Joy!

I can definitely say it has been one of joy
 for me and my family for sure.  Altho, we
are tired and catching up on sleep and
rest our hearts are full to overflowing.
This wee one has quickly captured all
of our hearts...................
I know that some of these thankfuls
might seem redundant,  but these are
the things that are filling my heart,
and you can never thank God too

So here we go.....................

I am thankful
of course, for this brand new lil treasure
God has given to us, thru Scott and Megan.
Brooklyn Jade

In Case you missed it Just click here!

I am thankful
 to my sweet daughter-in-love
for including me and inviting me to 
be present for my first granchild's was an unimagineable
 experience of a lifetime!!

Thank You so much,  Megan!!

I am thankful
that she arrived safely, and without a 
c-section, even in the midst of the trying

I am thankful
for all the answers to prayer that we saw
in the midst of those circumstances.

I am thankful
for all of those that prayed for Megan
Scott, Brooklyn and us while the process
was going on.  Thank you so much....
that was priceless gift to all of us.

I am thankful
and very excited about this new role
as her Grammy, and am having a hard
time staying away from her!   lol

I hear that is totally

but know the kids neat rest and 
 time to meld as a new family.

All pics on this post are from

I am thankful
they are all home from the hospital
and doing better after getting a lil 
more sleep.

I am thankful
they saw the Pedicatrican yesterday
and he said all is good with our lil
cherub, and also thankful that Mom is 
doing better every day too.

I am thankful
for the lovely hospital and the staff
that took such good care of Megan
and Brooklyn.  It was really neat
that the whole family could visit
with her while she was in labor,not 
that we were in there the whole
time, but at least we could see for
ourselves what was going on, and
not just have to hear it from some-
one, and think it was a comfort to
Megan and Scott as well, course
at times they needed some peace
and quiet which is totally natural.

I am thankful
we had a nice time out for my sweet
hubbies birthday, he turned 65 yester-
day, Dee and Jerry took us out to dinner
 and then we had cake and yogurt at 
their house that made
 it more fun than just having dinner and
 coming home.............and we will get
 together as a family once Scott and 
Megan get "Their new baby in the
 house equilibrium" down pat.

I am thankful
for what a wonderful gift hubby rec'd
for his 65th birthday, Brooklyn Jade
of course.  What a blessed gift!
He will surely never forget this
 birthday, and  it sort of takes the 
sting out of those 65 years!! lol

I am thankful
for my hubby and what a great man
of God he is, and what a wonderful
husband and father he has been and
he is very excited about his new role
as Grampy. It will be lots of fun to
watch I am sure.................

I am thankful
and so excited that I just heard from
 a young lady that used to be in our
 bible study way back when she was a 
teen, she is my son's age now, 35, and
 they have been having trouble conceiving
 a child and my hubby and the elders prayed
for her,  a few months back,  and she just 
called to say she is with child. So excited
 and happy for her and her hubby of 5 years.
 She is gonna be a great MOM, as she is 
just a lovely lovely young lady, and sure
her hubby will be a good dad, even tho
I don't know him well,  I do know his
parents, and her parents well, and they
 both have had great role models.....

Well, there you have it folks another
weeks worth of blessings............
always feel so great when I finish this
post.......always makes me realize how
blessed I matter what else
is going on.........

Thanks for dropping by and I look
forward to hearing from you.

Thank you so much for all your lovely 
sentiments and well wishes for our 
family, they were so appreciated and 
added even more joy 
to this wonderful experience.

Love, Hugs,  and
and Sweet Grammy Blessings,

Well you really did have a week of blessings, didn't you? I had to smile when I saw "Grampy", that is what I called my dad's was Granny and Grampy on that side and you don't see Grampy very often. It brought back sweet memories for me.

I'm learning my way around a new laptop this afternoon. My brain hurts! Have a great weekend!
