Well, this is it for me for today. Had a very eventful week, some insurance trouble, my card battery gave up on me. My DH was supposed to get home Thursday night at 5:34 PM but due to BAD weather did not make it in until 4.5 hours later. And last but not least, today as we were returning the rental car that my husband got up in Phoenix to drive home so he would not have to spend the night because they grounded all flights. One of my tires blew out!!  I tell you, I am so thankful that my girls rode with my husband and not in my van. GOD is a good GOD and I am thankful that it did not blow out while I was going 80mph on the highway, it blew out as we were pulling into Costco to do some bulk shopping. So, after all of that I am thanking GOD that he was with me and my family the entire time...he is an awesome GOD, isn't he?

Thanks for making my little Blog your stop today! I am forever grateful for you visiting me and leaving me a comment!

Have a wonderfully blessed weekend!!
