Thankful Tuesday

Hello All

Have had two great days.  Yesterday I was thankful for planes, traveling mercies and gifts from a distance.  Hubby arranged for my best friend, Dee to come here to Texas for a week to celebrate both of our birthdays.  Dee's is on 11/30 and mine is 12/1.  And I think hubby knew a good dose of friend time would be fun for me.  Dee left her home in Blaine yesterday morning at 7:15 a.m. and arrived safely in San Antonio at 8:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. her time).  After some great big hugs, picking up her luggage, getting the rental car and then stopping at Applebees for a late night dinner we got back to the park at 12:13 A.M.   We gave each other another great big hug and headed off to our respectable beds.  

Today has been another great day.  Woke to a thunder & lightening storm at 5:09 a.m.  and watched the glorious show that God put on for us.  It was nice to hear the rain falling, not so nice to feel water spraying on my leg on the bed ~ hubby has to do some more caulking on the roof.  Enjoyed fresh coffee made by my sweet hubby and then had a great day at work.  Visited with Dee throughout the day then joined a group of Escapees at the local Mexican restaurant for dinner and then made our way to Dairy Queen for mini blizzards...just enough to taste good and not kill my trying to eat healthier goal.  And then back to the park.  Now for a little time on the computer and then heading to bed.  

So thankful for a sweet and loving hubby, good friends to come for a visit and her sweet hubby encouraging her to take a little vacation and the warm welcome the members of Lone Star Corral  are giving Dee.

Hope you are all having a good day.  Talk to you again tomorrow night.

That's lots to be thankful for, Ali! I'm relieved to hear that your beds were respectable. ;)
