Good Thursday Mornin' Yall. I do hope that everyone had a great Wednesday and ready to start a new day. I am late in posting this morning, but I didn't have to get the girls up for school, so I didn't have to set the alarm for that. It will be that way for the next couple of weeks. It is 48 degrees with a windchill of 46 degrees. It is raining here this morning and we have thunder and lightening as well. It is suppose to be raining all day. I hope it quits before tonight because I have to go to a Basketball game.
First of all, I want to "THANK" Lib at Lib's Private Paradise for awarding me with the "I Love Your Blog Award" yesterday afternoon. "THANK YOU" so much Lib. You are a real sweetheart. If you have never been over to visit Lib, please do go over and pay her a visit. She is another Southern Woman from Tennessee. She will have a cup of coffee or cup of tea and even a cup of hot cocoa waiting for you. I promise you, you will feel right at home at her place. She is a very crafty person as well. I am so honored that she chose me to have this award. I haven't known Lib very long, but I feel as if I've known her for years. "THANK YOU" again Lib for this wonderful award. If you turn your head sideways, it will look like a heart. Someone sure came up with a great idea for this award.
Well, today is "Thankful Thursday" again. It seems like it was just yesterday that I was posting a "Thankful Thursday". Time sure does fly by. Well, today I am "Thankful" for each and everyone of you. You are all truly such wonderful friends and have given me lots of encouragement when I was down, and said countless prayers for me and my family. I am also "Thankful" for the Power of Prayer. I know what Prayer can do. I had a Prayer answered on Monday, and I'm so "Thankful" that I have friends like you who took the time to comment and prayed for my hubby's job hunt. I know, I talked about this on Tuesday, but it fits in with today's post also. I am also "Thankful" for our Dear Savior who died on the Cross to save us from our sins. I am "Thankful" I am here to Celebrate our Dear Savior's Birth in just a few days. I have so many things to be "Thankful" for everyday, but these are just a few I am sharing for today. I could sit here and almost write a book on everything I'm "Thankful" for, but don't worry, I won't do that today. LOL. No seriously, we all have so many things to be "Thankful" for each and every day. But, I wanted to share these "Thankful" things with you. And since I am so "Thankful" for each and everyone of you, I would love to pass the above "I Love Your Blog Award" on to all of my blogging friends. Please, feel free to take it and put it on your sidebar. "CONGRATULATIONS" to each and everyone of you for receiving this award. I love everyone's blog and enjoy visiting you.
My daughter has another Basketball game tonight. It will be in Leachville, AR. Leachville and Monette, AR are consolidated. They have a gym at both places and they switch out every year where a game is played. My daughter's Basketball Coach's wife called me last night and told me it was going to be played in Leachville tonight. It's not that far from here either. Now if you will remember, I posted about them playing BIC a few weeks back when we played them here at home. Well, we have to be up in there neck of the woods tonight, and I know it is going to be a good game. It's going to be one of those "on the edge" kind of games. I just hope they have learned their lesson and won't be doing any hitting around on our girls tonight. The sad thing about that night when those girls were kicking and hitting on our girls, the Parents was standing up and cheering it on. Now that is down right wrong. This isn't no Professional Basketball Game for pete's sake, they are just girls in the 6th grade. I know I get excited and yell out sometimes at some of the games, but I am there to "Cheer" my daughter's team on. I enjoy it very much. But you can bet your botton dollar that I will tell all about it on tomorrow's post.
I would like to "THANK" Anni at Hootin' Anni for giving me the "Hootin' Anni's Holiday Award". I had seen where alot of my friends had this on their blog as well. Last night when I was visiting Anni, I asked her if I could have it as well. I seen where she left me a comment letting me know that I could have it, but I had better come get it and run. "THANK YOU" so much Anni for this Award. I appreciate it so very much. I haven't know Anni very long, but in the short time I have known her, she is a sweetheart also. If you have never been to visit Anni, PLEASE be sure to go and visit her. Trust me, you won't regret it. She is such a Hoot. You will leave there laughing so hard sometimes that you will be crying. I love that about Anni and I so enjoy going to visit her. "THANKS" again Anni for this button. I really appreciate it and you so much.Last night for mine and the girls supper, I just heated up some burrito's that were already made and heated us up some tater tots. The girls love those kind of burritos. I guess we will finish up the Taco's sometime today. I think they are suppose to stay all night with my Parents again tomorrow night. Hubby and me have got to go finish buying a few more gifts for the girls. I have no idea what to get them because my Parents and my Sister has already bought them just about everything they want. I do have a couple of things in mind to get them tho. I sure am dreading going out in the stores. And yes, as bad as I hate Wal-Mart, I am going to have to go there. I can't afford to go to the Mall and buy them things from there, so I have to go to Wal-Mart instead. I won't get started on going to Wal-Mart, that is a whole new story in itself, but I think all of you know how I despise it. I will just have to bite my tongue and just do it. I may have to wear my bathing suit as it is always too warm in there for me. LOL. No, I'm just kidding.
Well, I guess I'll go for now. I think I am going to go visit and see who I can have coffee with this morning. I am about half-way thru with my first cup and fixing to need a refill. Before I leave, what do you have to be "Thankful" for on this "THANKFUL THURSDAY"? If you want to share with me in the comment section, you know that I am always greatful to hear what you have to say. Take care my friends and have a "THANKFUL THURSDAY". May God Bless Each and Everyone of You.
LOVE & HUGS,
