Thankful Thursday - Year 2 Week 37! {Link Up}

Welcome to Thankful Thursday!  If you're new here, welcome!  If you're a return visitor, welcome back!  I am glad you are here.  Today is the day of the week where I like to take a moment to just be thankful for some things in my life that are happening right now.  You are welcome to link up your "thankful" posts below or simply share in the comments something you are thankful for.

This week I am thankful for:

* The gift of an amazing mother and role model who passed away three years ago this morning.  I can't believe it has been three years.  I truly can't.  It seems like yesterday.  I wrote a post about her on the one year anniversary.  You can read that HERE.

* Vacation Bible School at church!  There are over 600+ children who participated in VBS this week, including Moira.  I was not involved at all, but as a parent, I truly appreciate all of the work that went into the planning, preparation and execution of VBS this week.  It was amazing!  The theme was Kidscoast Kingdom {"Kidscoast" is the name of the children's program at our church which is called "Seacoast"}.  Everything had a "kingdom" theme wherever you went.  It was so well done!  The kids are broken up by grade {K through 5th} and they have been discussing the armor of God.  I am so proud to be part of a church which does so much to pour into the lives of our children.

* Calm and quiet.

* Getting caught up on my own medical appointments.  I still need a regular doctor visit {i.e. I know I have high cholesterol and I need to have that seen to}, but I'm current on my well woman visit and mammogram and am pleased to report all results from these visits are normal!  I'm also seeing a sleep specialist and am working on getting the right "something" to help me sleep better.  I just switched to something else and it's been a little trying as it wasn't immediately as effective as the previous, but it's improving a bit.

* Husband / Wife Time.  Yes.  Ron and I are getting away.  Together.  Aside from a long weekend in Gatlinburg, TN back in 2011, the last time Ron and I had a chance to get away just the two of us was in 2007.  To say we need this is an understatement.  I'm very excited about this!!  Along with that goes my sincere thanks and appreciation to our dear friend who will be taking care of Moira while we're gone.

What are you thankful for today?
