Thankful Thursday

I took the boys to lunch the other day. The waiter came to our table and asked for our drink order....

Waiter: Mam? What can I get you to drink?
Me: Unsweet Iced Tea, please.
Waiter: (to Dave) And for you?
Dave: Dr. Pepper, please.
Waiter: (to Calvin) And for you?
Calvin: Bud Light, please.

{{cricket, cricket, cricket}}

Waiter: (leans in to Calvin) Dude, your braces kinda give you away. You get water.
Me: (laughing uncontrollably)

My Calvin, he's such a funny guy!

1. I'm thankful for laughter and the good times I have with my guys, all three of them.

2. My new (to me) books I'm reading.

3. My 'Yummy Grandma' lotion from a sweet friend, so yummy. I slather it on while I'm doing my bible study.

4. The ability to work, it makes me feel so good.

5. My 'JOY' mug with the verse that says....'the joy of the Lord is my strength'...I LOVE that verse.

6. The HUGE thunder, lightning & rain storm outside right now.

7. There is currently NO laundry piled in the hallway or on my bed.

8. The super-uber cheap, but yummy & healthy meal I made tonight for the fam. Big pot of beans & roasted corn.

9. Washing my hair after wearing a baseball cap all day, ahhhhhhhhh.

10. I taught Calvin how to do laundry this week, and he's taken upon himself to do, like, 4 loads without being asked. (Mom pride is beaming!)
