Thankful Thursday

Don't you love surprises???

Last night, RJ and I were sitting in the family room after a long day. He was watching a western (that is a standard at our house), I was fighting with my computer which had a charging problem (that's been a standard lately). We heard the front door open and expected to hear the familar holler of Z coming home from a long day as well. Nothing...nada....no noise....


When what to my wondering eyes did appear......




BUT HALEY BETH....
home from college for the weekend. Early!!
She is a maid of honor for her sister in June and has been planning the Bachelorette party this weekend. So when Thursday classes were cancelled and none on Friday....she came home to finish details. What a sweetheart!

So today, I'm so thankful my baby is home for a few days. I'm so grateful God delivered her safely home. She worked all day today helping with dishes/laundry/cleaning/making a cake. Daddy gave all his babies special names when they were born....hers was "Tenderheart". How true.....She used to be a daddy's girl (still is I guess) but I think she's pretty good to her momma.

And tomorrow the bride to be comes home for Bachelorette Party.

Saturday is Baby D's prom so will have to post that one too....

and so...one of my favorite verses...

...giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ...

Ephesians 5:2o

I hope you had a Thankful Thursday...I'm sure you did!! :0)

She told me that she wanted to go home last night because if she waited until today, she probably wouldn't wake up until noon. Bingo!

Praying for the phone call tomorrow!

Hugs and kisses!

What a great surprise! My daughter has done that a couple of times. Once she came in during the night (only her dad knew about that one) and when I woke up there she was making breakfast. Enjoy your girls and the week end!!!

I borrowed the Thankful Thursday title. I hope you don't mind.
