Thankful Thursday



Thankful this Thursday for things that happened this summer.    My son took a job that had him going to work in the late afternoon.  A change, for sure, but it meant he and I were home during the same time during the day.  This meant conversation on all levels and topics.  We watched a few TV shows together and cleared up all kinds of misunderstandings from life, family, and whatever.  

Quite possibly one of the most important things that happened this summer.  

What are you thankful for this Thursday?  Let me know!  Big or small, it doesn't matter.  Being thankful is the only important thing.



It's a Small Town Life

  6. It's neat to see an old truck like that...and awesome that you were able to spend so much time with your son! Today I'm thankful for warm weather and good health. The past couple days have just been perfect.

  7. Oh, I'm so happy for the quality time you got to spend with DS. This will enrich your relationship the rest of your lives. I think every child should spend time with their parents after they reach adulthood and try very hard to leave childhood attitudes behind and see your parents as the individuals they are.

  8. That's a major thing to happen and I love the car. I saw one very similar to this not too long ago.

  12. What a stroke of luck to have that special time alone with your son! I don't know how many times he shares a memory and I'm like.. "What???" I also find out things they did as teens that I never knew about. Very illuminating! I'm thankful that my son and his family live with us - there would have never been this closeness with them if they lived elsewhere. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  15. Today I am just thankful to be on the right side of the dirt! :~) Those times with the kids will get to be fewer and farther between as they grow up. Then come the grand kids!

  16. I remember when my son (who is now close to 40!) was in his early 20's it was hard to communicate. He felt I was being too critical. It's good you had more bonding with your son this summer. The older they get the more they understand us and visa versa.

  18. Sometimes you end up with pleasant surprises when you least expect them. You never would have thought a change in a job would have led to a better communication with your son.

  19. That is a very good and important thing to be thankful for.
    Time with our kids is always precious. When they leave for college they do leave an emptiness behind.
