I am so thankful for the grace of God that enables me to do it with His peace and His sanity! His grace is sufficient for ALL of my needs. He reminds me to look at the calendar and be very organized about planning my day.
I am thankful for a sweet husband who helps in all of the running!
I am thankful for a carpool that helps with football practice so that I only had to drive once this week!
I am thankful that Thursday's schedule, the busiest this week with 3 parent meetings and 2 soccer practices, is staggered in such a way that Brian and I can "tag team" and all is covered! Thanks, God!
I am thankful for my sweet children and their activities. I LOVE watching them play sports and there are always valuable lessons to be learned while playing!
(AND in case you are thinkin' "OK, Martha, slow down!", our kids are really not that busy! But, with 5 kids, 4 of them in ONE activity, it makes for a busy schedule.)
I am thankful that our schedule is NOT usually like this. I know many parents who run like this as the norm. Oh, how thankful I am God has brought me to a place of simplifying!
I am thankful that Brian is taking Andrew this weekend for a very special weekend together. They are doing "Passport to Purity" and seeing a Cubs game. Please remember them in your prayers!
And, as always, please visit Iris this week for more thankfulness!
I'm thankful for exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!
