Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

Thursday Thoughts

I am exhausted. Physically & mentally worn out. Hawger is so heavy and so DEMANDING I hope and pray the time in the cast goes by fast :) Last night he was starting to waller around a bit on the floor so that was a tiny bit more mobility LOL.

Wanted to share my main gratitude today and its long enough to use for a blog post LOL. I dont always have funny anecdotes to share so this will suffice for today.

Saturday was the church egg hunt/hot dog picnic. We drove down (its about 30 min. or so) and it was a ton of fun! I had forgot my cam though. Anyways on the way home we passed 3 yard sales. I am such a junk junkie...it KILLS me to drive by! But we were broke and so I bit my tongue :) Got home, there was a trash bag full of clothes for Hawger & Luvey, a bag of books, both kid and young adult, a Thomas train toy and some small rollerblades! A friend of mine was getting yardsale stuff ready a couple weeks ago, and she always calls me to preview and buy her boys' clothes ahead of time. So I went and spent $20 on some shorts etc. Well she brought me EVERYTHING THAT DIDNT SELL! I was so happy :) Then Danny's ex-wife brought (stepson) home and SHE had 2 trashbags of clothes for Wildchild & Luvey! She has a son a bit older than Luvey but he is big so Wildchild got some too! I told her "see how God blesses me, I didnt have money for yardsales today, but I didnt pout or get upset and just look at what He gave me!" I was happy :)
Here are my new babies, 3 wks old today (pic was taken at 2 wks tho)
Spring (or sprinkletime as Hawger says)
Cool nights, warm days
Yardsales and good friends :)
Be blessed today! xoxo melzie

The kitties are so cute!

I love your gratitude lists--it reminds me to look for the good stuff in life!

I will keep praying for your little guy--and for you!

Melzie, thanks for coming over to visit. I often find blogs by opening other bloggers daily reads or links! I'll come back and read more when I have my main computer back...we had some sort of corruption thing so hubby has some work to do this weekend! I'm using his laptop. LOVE baby kittens...aren't they just the cutest!

Oh, one of hubby's jobs this weekend is helping me change the font size. He says it's simple, so I'll hold him to that. He's my techincal person. Thanks again.

What a happy outcome..*VBS* I have come to think there is a silver lining to almost every cloud..*S* And if there are occasionally one cloud that just rains, well, that's need too. Hugs for a happy outcome and joy shared, Finn

Love the kittens!!
