Thankful....

We had a super busy week and weekend.
As you know my lil man has been sick, but is doing 100 times better.

Last Friday I had a wedding on the very popular 11-11-11
They were the sweetest couple, so cute and sweet. They and their families have been though a lot and it was so touching to be a part of their wedding and seeing this family all together.
They are blessed to have each other.

Saturday was my friend's, nephew's daughter's birthday and welcome home party.
Wow say that 5 times fast!
This lil girl was born with an underdeveloped intestine and had numerous surgeries in her first year of life. She spend the last year and a half in Kapiolani Women's and Children's Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House. She's finally home with her family and they celebrated with a party. We spent 2 evenings after work making 150 cake pops for the guests favors. Whew... I dont want to see another cake pop for a long time! LOL

Sunday we had a small baby shower for a dear friend of mine. She is pregnant with her 4th boy. It was so nice to see the kids playing and nice to visit and talk story with all our friends and family.
I will be sharing some of the gifts that I made for her later this week!
I'll give you a hint... it has something to do with this post.

So I guess you could say I've been keeping busy.
I have some projects that I want to share with all of you, but I just havent been able to find the time to blog about it.

Last night I was lying in bed and I was running all the things I have to do in my head.
It was quiet and I could hear the waves crashing on the beach below our subdivision.
I listened to it for a while and thought, wow, I never noticed that before.
Then, I stopped to think.

How lucky am I to by lying in my bed and listening to the ocean waves break on the shore?
Thank you Lord.

Then I thought, it's so quiet that I can hear it, mean's my son isnt waking up sick during the night anymore. (or that my hubby isnt snoring!)
Thank you Lord.

No matter how much work the cake pops were, thank the Lord their little girl is here and healthy.
All those projects that was going through my mind. I'm thankful for the opportunity to work on them, and finish a lot of them as well.

I dont know if listening to the waves that gave me this Ah ha moment or the fact that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and its time to think of all the things you're thankful for.

Either way, no matter how busy we get we must not forget all that we should be thankful for.

Ok, and as my DECA teacher would say, thats my sermon for today.

See ya'll soon with my projects!
