a daughter, two grandsons and a thankful thursday

I am thankful that Greg at  has posted another Thankful Thursday and that I was able to join in for the fun!

I am thankful for my baby daughter, Ashlie. Even though she is 20 (almost 21) and married with 2 precious little boys of her own, she will always be my baby. I thank God for her every day. She has blessed me immeasurably.

I  am thankful that she was given a day at the salon by her husband for mother's day and I got to keep Bryton for about 6 hours! She took Sawyer with her so it was just me and Bryton and boy did we have fun. She hardly ever leaves the boys - she just hates to be away from them. So anytime they are at the house, she is there with them. So it was fun to spoil Bryton even more than normal! Ha!

We played cars and trucks. We swam in the little pool and played in the water. He watered my flowers. We ate healthy corndogs for lunch. We played outside until this Nana was totally exhausted.

I am thankful that we had such a great time and when Sawyer got home with his mama, we played outside again and had even more fun.

I am thankful that they spent the night and I got some really good morning snuggles and lots of good lovin' from both my sweet grandsons. We had another good day with lots of playtime outside enjoying the amazingly beautiful day that God granted us.

I am thankful that I am a child of the King. Forgiven and redeemed by His precious blood.

Thank you, Jesus, for life eternal.

"That I may proclaim with the voice of thanksgiving,
And tell of all Your wondrous works."
Psalm 26:7

In eternal gratitude to Him,

Your grandboys are adorable!! And Ashlie is beautiful!! I think it's wonderful her husband got her a day at the salon, and Nana was able to take care of Bryton and lavish her love on him one on one! It is such a blessing!!
The Lord is so good to us!
Happy TT day!
