Today is a tough day....I know I've been through so much tough stuff over the past three years, but I'm having a hard time finding anything to be especially thankful about today....I'm just being a whiney butt and I know it! My "main squeeze" is headed to London today and I'm at home, with a broken wrist and elbow and not feeling particularly pretty , since I can't even fix my hair and have to wear eleastic waist pants since i can't pull them up if they aren't......so....I guess today I'm thankful for: elastic waist pants, orange colored cast, "GO BIG ORANGE" takes on a whole new meaning, cell phones, sober pilots and this computer!
My original purpose for starting a blog was to have a place to list at least three things I'm Thankful for everyday....It is also to keep me from being whiney and make me be a little more focused on the good in my life. Of course I could say the same three things everyday, and I will start with those , so just know that I am incredibly thankful everyday for the following:
My sweet, handsome adorable and loving husband of almost 32 years who has put up with more than his share of me, especially over the past three years.
My oldest son and his precious wife and kids.....Chris has grown into a wonderful person, a great husband, a terrific father and after many difficulties between the two of us when he was in his teens, a loving , precious son.
My middle child, Hub and his family....Hub was nothing but trouble, in a good sense of the word, when he was a kid....always into something, always in the emergency room, and spoiled rotten by his dad, brother and me. Plus, he was the cutest kid in town and everytime we were out somebody from the newspaper took a picture of him and put it in the paper!
My sweet, precious Hannah. The third and last child, and the only girl and her husband Jeff. The two of them fit together like two parts of a puzzle....I find myself jealous of the life they lead...so free spirited and happy. Hannah seems to have that special something that lights up a room and definitely lights up her mom and dad's hearts.
My four gorgeous grandchildren, Henley, Carter, Addison and Juliana....they are definitely a gift! Trust me, there will be more to come about those 4.
Most of all I am Thankful to God....can you imagine knowing from the beginning that all of his creation would sin and he would have to send His Son to earth to be crucified on the cross for our sins. God has worked out all the details, most of which I do not understand, but I sure am thankful for my blessings!
Yep....that's me....when I was in my early twenties I worked in personnel for a company and they called me "Peanut Butter Patti", so that's where the Peanut Butter came in to play....then 9 years ago I was blessed with my first Grandchild. Everyone said, what is your Grandmother name gonna be.....while others said, "oh you should let the child name you"....well my thouhgts on that differ....you see, this little boy has grandmothers, greatgrandmothers, step grandmothers, you get the point, plus, I'm the only one who doesn't live within 15 miles of him.......needless to say I did not want to be a granny or memaw, (I have nothing against those names) but since little man wouldn't see me everyday or so, I thought I needed to be different! That's where the "Honey" comes in.........Our family has grown in 9 years, and I feel very blessed to have three sweet little voices calling me Honey and the 4th will in about a year. Hence the name of my blog!
