Today I am thankful for . . .
695. The gift of Mitchell's Opportunity to go to the lake for a couple of days with one of his best friends.
696. The gift of Spending One-on-One time with Ty while Mitchell was gone. This very rarely happens, but I think I'm going to have to start implementing a parent-son day on a regular basis. It's nice to spend time with your kids one-on-one every now-and-then, don't you agree?
697. The gift of A Gift Card to Scott's Parable (a Christian gift/book store) which I received for my birthday. I used it today to buy a canvas painting for our entranceway, which says, "As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord"; a compact Bible (so that I can fit it into my purse); a new book, called Eleven, by Leonard Sweet; and some interesting music (recommended by Ty), which is Thousand Foot Krutch's CD, "The End is Where We Begin". After listening to the album with Ty a few times today, I'm not sure I'm convinced it's my kind of music; however, he is really enjoying it and I know Mitchell will too, and really, that's all that matters, since I essentially bought it for them. I can tolerate my boys' music choices if it makes them happy.
