~ Right now.....

I am......
  • counting my blessings ( too many to count)
  • listening to the quiet of the house as our day comes to a close
  •  hearing popcorn popping, the steady hum of the washer/dryer, plans being made for a new day
  • thankful all of the children are safely home for the night
  • missing my older two boys but so proud of them all at the same time
  • thankful for the brides my boys have chosen :)
  • enjoying the clean kitchen...( let's see how long that will last...haha)
  • feeling a little sentimental as we get closer to Jeffrey's wedding this weekend :)
  • thinking about how fast children grow up
  • remembering how busy the days were when I had several little people to care for
  • reaping the rewards of raising a house full of children
  • enjoying fresh veggies from Abbey's garden
  • feeling accomplished after a loooong day
  • so thankful for my parents and extended family
  • so thankful for my good health and great friends!!!
  • finally working on becoming a nurse ( a lifelong dream !!!)
  • realizing I couldn't fulfill my dream without a great support group!
  • so blessed!!! 
Sorry for all the rambling on! Sometimes a girl has to think out loud...lol! Thank you for stopping by :)  Leave us a "Howdy" in the comments. We would love to hear from you!

Another week has come and gone!!!  I'm already two weeks into my Nurse Aide classes.  Hope I am spending my time in the right way.  I just want to make a little bit of a difference in this big ol' world!  As busy as we get sometimes, I need to remember that it's a great kind of busy. The days can seem long, but the years truly are so short!  Now that's enough of my rambling on!!! Wishing you all a very "Happy Weekend!"

Thank you for stopping by!!!
