Giving Thanks

As we come to the close of the week, I must give thanks for some wonderful events that have taken place over the last several days.
  • Hubby has accepted a new job and I can't be more thrilled for him. He's such a talented and intelligent man and I know that he's going to do amazing things in this position. Cheers to you, my lovely man!

  • My brother and his bride closed on their first house on Tuesday. Yea - they're homeowners!

  • A huge tree fell down in our yard yesterday during a terrible storm. It broke the neighbor's fence, but did no damage to the houses and no one was harmed. Thank you, God.

  • And best of all, our dear friends met their daughter for the first time on Wednesday, when she arrived from Korea. I'm so happy for them. That's daddy and daughter above - how's that for a Father's Day gift?

To all the wonderful dads out there, including my dad and Hubby, I hope your Father's Day is full of joy!
