Thankful Thursday

Some days I just feel like EVERYTHING is a God send (well, I mean everything IS from God). 
And some days I'm totally "woe is me."
The last few days were the latter.
I was frustrated with Stuart. 
I was anxious about our weekend.
I was bemoaning plans.
Then Stuart's grandfather (a.k.a Grandpa) fell and shattered the end of his humerus.
Yesterday was spent going to the ER and frantically trying to find an Orthopedic Surgeon that could see them.
They did.
He's having surgery on Thursday.
Can y'all say a prayer for him?

So today I am thankful for Grandma and Grandpa.
It's so hard for me to put into words how wonderful these two people are.
They're the kind of people that make you feel wonderful no matter what.
Grandma ALWAYS has something nice to say and usually has cookies or bread made for you to snack on.
Grandpa loves to regale you with stories from the motor pool or Oklahoma.
Their house is the most inviting place and you can spend hours there in a matter of minutes.
They fiercly love their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and those that have been added via marriage (like me!).
Grandma and Grandpa are such a testament of a Godly marriage.
I am so proud to have them in my life.
Thank you Lord for blessing me with Grandma and Grandpa.
