Day 154- Thankful for family and helpful teleworkers

Today I’m having a tired day. I slept in till 9:30, had a little breakfast, administered a physical science test to my daughter, then took pictures of the test and texted them to the school for grading. Later, I quizzed her in another subject. I also spoke with the teleworking, appointment-making person (obviously not her… Read More Day 154- Thankful for family and helpful teleworkers

Day 127 – Thankful for stories with a lesson

My youngest daughter loves stories and drama and fun. She is a great storyteller, and and she loves to listen to stories told by other great storytellers. These photos are screen shots of a video I took of her performing her illustrated storytelling in Chapel on Wednesday. She likes to do imitations of other accents… Read More Day 127 – Thankful for stories with a lesson

Day 90-Thankful for our son’s safe arrival and for long-distance communication/prayer

Yesterday my husband and I took our son to the airport for his flight back to university. He did well in his first semester, and we very much enjoyed having him home. But now it’s time for him to get back to his studies. I admit to standing there watching intently every last glimpse of… Read More Day 90-Thankful for our son’s safe arrival and for long-distance communication/prayer

Day 73 – Thankful for Power company linemen who restore power

Today we spent time as a family eating at a restaurant after church services were over. As we approached our house, I had to drive around a power company truck. I didn’t think anything of it until I entered the house to find that there was no power: no lights, no computer, no refrigerator, no… Read More Day 73 – Thankful for Power company linemen who restore power

Day 71 – Thankful to be able to spend time with my children and cook with my son

I love all of my children.  The youngest is 16, and none of them are really “children” anymore.  I’ve invested a lot of time in their lives, but all but the youngest two have moved on with their own lives; that’s the way it should be. I’ve spent a lot of time with my youngest… Read More Day 71 – Thankful to be able to spend time with my children and cook with my son

Day 64 – Thankful for people who care enough to listen

Thursday night I went with my husband to his ham radio Christmas party expecting no more than the polite conversation of new acquaintances. If nothing else, it would be a time to eat a good meal, to people watch, and to listen to conversations going on around me. (I know, sort of negative thinking, right?)… Read More Day 64 – Thankful for people who care enough to listen
