Thankful Thursday!

1st for the laugh . . .


How Pumpkin Pies Are Made!!!


Now for my Thankful Thursday post . . .

I am thankful today for the wonderful surprise that I received in the mail.  Yesterday my husband called from DC (where he has been since Saturday) to tell me he would not be home until Thanksgiving.  Boo!  Since I was a little flustered from being here with the 3 little ones for several days on my own and getting the bad news from Jim I just threw the mail on the counter for later review.  So, this morning I noticed a little box in the mail stack (Oh, how I love little boxes!) so I tore into it and to my delight discovered a fabulous necklace from my fabulous new friend, Nicole.  It totally made my morning and for that I am thankful! 
My daughter, Emma took the picture with my phone.  Quite lovely - eh?



I am also thankful today for my wonderful mom, Cheryl Ann DeJulius.  Without her love and support I would not be the woman and mother I am today.  I believe that there is no way to know how much a mother loves until you become a mom yourself.  I have always known that my mom loves me without a doubt but once I became a mom I realized how much she sacrificed for me, loved me, protected me and endured from me. I see her now hurt for me as I am hurting for my son and I realize now that you NEVER stop being a mom. It is a gift you are given and you keep for the rest of your life. My mom is the wing beneath my wings, she is my hero, she is the mother that I hope to be to my own children.  Thank you, Mom for being my mom and for all that you do for me and my family.  I love you and am so thankful for you everyday!!
