There are a million things I could be doing...I have been sick all weekend, therefore, my to-do list did not get completed. I finally caught Jonathan & Peyton's nasty virus which had me in bed all weekend & miss a day of school. Thankfully, I am on the mend. Due to not being able to read (a horrible headache) & not watching TV (Lent), I had hours to think & pray. I love reading my friends (& blog acquaintances that I feel are my friends...haha) "Things They Love" blogs. Well, I have a LONG list of things I'm thankful for (& for your sake will not mention them all), but here are a few -
1. As hard as it is working full-time, I LOVE my Kindergarteners!!! I never knew I'd love this age group so much! I love tying their shoes, making letters & sounds, reminding them NOT to tattle-tell, creating "their" spelling to words in journals, etc. I love my co-workers & school. God is good to have placed me in such a good place.

4. I truly am thankful for my friends in Royston, Georgia (I am thankful for ALL my friends - in KY, CA, OH, Atlanta) but this weekend, especially thankful for the wonderful, godly ladies I've met in Royston. I was worried I'd move to a small town & have no one (let's face it - it's hard making friends as adults). Thank you for opening your homes & hearts to me.
5. Of course, I am soooo thankful for my boys - Jonathan, Peyton, & Nolan on the way. I already remind Peyton that, "...he has to be patient with Mama because I take a much longer time getting ready than he..." He nods, laughs, & runs away. As you mama's & wives know, there is no one more special in your world that your family.
