Thankful Thursday

"There is always, always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for."
~ Unknown

I started this week off giving thanks for my little guy feeling somewhat better.  His cough has cleared up ton. He's back to his cheerful self.  I'm also grateful that we have health insurance.  Paying for doctor visits and prescriptions out of pocket with no assistance or discount can be pricey.

Mother's Day was almost a week ago. Since I've been tending to JJ and working a few other projects I haven't had the chance to be present around the blog this week.  I said all that to say Happy Belated Mother's Day!  This Mother's Day I wanted to be surrounded by my family and to have a whole day of being able to curl up with my books.  Sunday, I got to do just that.  I wrapped up reading half of Christina Lauren's Beautiful series and started on A. N. Roquelaure's (Anne Rice) The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty as well as Oprah Winfrey's This I Know For Sure.  

The Mr. took over breakfast duty.  Moo and JJ played quietly in the living room together.  No complaints here about my Mother's Day except for the Mr having had to go in to work.  Otherwise, it was nice and peaceful.

Thankfully, my mom was finally able to find a handyman to do a few odd ends around her house.  That process in and of itself was a small pain in her bottom.  I come from a super small town that 95% of people have never heard of.  And if you need major repairs you often times end up a creek because the closest major cities and towns are at 1 to 4 hours away.  Then you're not only worried about the cost of the repair, but how much they're going to charge for you traveling so far out.

Anyways, she called me all excited that she had found someone with a dependable crew and reasonable rates.  They've already made some repairs and she's pleased with their services and have been recommending them to others in the area who were looking for a good handyman as well.  I'm grateful she can rest easy and stop stressing/worrying over these issues now that they are being taken care of.

Lastly, I want to ask you guys to keep the YUMMommy family in prayer.  My husband is stepping out on faith to do something that will result in HUGE changes for our family.  While I'm excited, I'm nervous as well.  However, I trust God to lead us and guide us.  He wouldn't have opened this door if there wasn't a reason.  So, I've been praying that He makes those reasons clear in order for us to make the right choices for our family.

What are you thankful for today?

  1. Stepping out on faith is so hard to do and even though I have faith doing something that affects your family is huge but God is so good that he will always have our back no matter what.

  2. I don't have anyone to date but I try to do movie night with my boys. We have a much simpler idea of what is good food to eat :) Tonight is was cheese macaroni.
