THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Grandkids Make Life Grand!
I was blessed to attend a party for this grandson this past Saturday so that is what the pictures are of today. The party had a Scooby Do theme and the phantom stole the piñata so all the little ones got a spy glass to find him. Ha ! They all had a great time Today he’ll probably be at school most of the day as he’s started Kindergarten this year. Kindergarten sure has changed a lot since I went to school. Now it’s more like 1st grade used to be.
We also bid the month of August a fond farewell today. Tomorrow we’ll be welcoming in September and that along with the coming Labor Day weekend always unofficially means the beginning of Fall to me. This week I’ll be putting away summer here in my house and very slowly bring out the fall decorations. I always try to put out a few things on the shelves and tables for whatever season we are in.
Apple scented candles are a favorite of mine and I already have two new ones to kick off the fall season. Although it looks like we’re having a very summery week here with temps in the 80’s, Autumn is not far away at all.
I hope you all have a GREAT start to this new week. Happy Monday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
A grandchild is a gift from above...one to cherish and to love
Counting at least 3 things every day that I'm thankful for. There is truly is always something to be thankful for.
3085. for Mr. Wonderful, he’s 5 years old today
3086. for apple scented candles
3087. for real apples to eat too, the orchards will soon be ripe for the picking
Enter into His courts with thanksgiving — and in His presence is fullness of Joy!
