Thankful Thursday

Hi Sweet Friends,

It has been a quiet and peaceful Thursday
I had my little K~Baby today
She is so very sweet and such a joy
She was pretty low key today
So, that made the day restful
And, after the past two weeks
That is exactly what I needed

Matthew is home from his 10 days of treatment
We are learning to navigate these new and uncharted waters
God is doing a mighty work within my spirit
Each day I learn more about grace
And unconditional love than I thought possible

The past couple of days have been sweet
I received a beautiful package in the mail yesterday
From a blog friend (Deb)
Who blessed my heart with these fall goodies
And even a few pieces for Christmas
My birthday is Saturday and she just wanted
To let me know that I was being thought about
I cannot thank you enough Deb!!

Because I'm taking Friday off work and 
I'm always off on Thursday
The office staff had a fun and delicious lunch for me yesterday
BBQ chicken, homemade mac n cheese
And a host of other treats
I also received flowers, balloon, and gift card

Then, in the mail this week I received
A couple of cards from other sweet bloggers
Who really have lifted my spirits in recent weeks
Along with a couple of gift cards and birthday wishes

Being hospitalized last weekend
And having my son in the hospital as well
Along with all of the 'challenges' we are facing

I am SO very grateful for those people around me
Who have taken time to:
Pull weeds in my yard, take care of my dog,
Send a card, note or comment on a post
Like or 'heart' a photo
Give me a hug or word of encouragement
And drag me to Yoga

YOU have blessed my week and helped to
Support me as I take each step 
Along this new and very challenging path

YOU are my HERO's

I am Thankful on this Thursday
for YOU

Blessings to All

  7. Wow. You have thoughtful wonderful people in your life. xoxo Su

  8. Happy birthday dear one. I keep you and your son in my prayers. I am hopeful that his treatment was helpful. You are a brave woman and so filled with love. I want you to know it is okay to cry. I did a lot during the last 6 years of my husbands life and it was helpful in relieving stress. Laughter and tears are necessary for us all.

  9. Cindy, I hope you have a very happy birthday weekend. You deserve to feel special.

  10. Cindy, Sounds like you have some wonderful friends. They are a blessing. I hope everything will get better and you enjoy your weekend,. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  11. Happy Birthday Cindy. So glad you have enjoyed some restful time, feeling better and your son is home and God has blessed the journey you are all on.
    Your gifts are thoughtful and you so deserve to be treated special.
    My prayers remain with you. Wishing you a nice weekend. Blessings to you and sending BIG Hugs, cm

  12. I'm so glad you have gotten some more restful days and more peace within your heart. It was so nice of your office to throw you a birthday deserve all the happy moments you can get. I hope you have a lovely, peaceful & "Happy Birthday" weekend, Cindy. You and Matthew are always in my prayers.


  13. Happy Birthday, Cindy. So glad that Matthew is home, and you are both taking it one day at a time.
    You are so loved by many people.
    Blessing to you, sweet girl.

  14. I am late getting here, Cindy, with a busy week here myself. Happy Birthday to you. I am glad your son is home and, hopefully, finding some peace-of-heart and mind. It is so hard to see our kids suffer and not know HOW to begin to help them. I think we just have to turn them over to God sometimes when we have done all we can do.

    I will keep both of your in my prayers. Looks like you have lots of blogger support. What would we do without out blogging friends? Big hugs to you- xo Diana

  15. Cindy, I am so glad that things are going well for both you and Matthew. God certainly does have a way of softening our hearts! I was thinking about you lately and wishing I had your address. I'll have to have you e-mail it to me. Thank goodness for wonderful friends and neighbors!

  16. Forgot to wish you a Happy Belated Birthday! Hope it was wonderful!!

  17. Happy Birthday!! Have a wonderful weekend and a long one at that!!
    Sounds like you have already started celebrating.....

    Thanks so much for all your visits!


  18. So glad to see many blessings came your way.You have so many wonderful friends. Hugs Nancy

  19. What a precious circle of friends. I know they have been an encouragement to you. God's grace is boundless. Aren't you glad? Prayers my friend.

  20. I came by this morning to see how you are doing as you are in my constant thoughts these days. I'm glad to hear that Matthew is out of the hospital and that you have so many good friends surrounding and helping you on this new and difficult journey you and Matthew are on. Take care, sweetie. I hope you have a good weekend :)
