I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for nail polish remover, which takes adhesive out of hair, and extra strong conditioner which repairs the hair after being soaked in "glue" and nail polish remover.
I am so very thankful for a fabulous husband who had patience to slowly pick clumps of glue out, bit by bit, and rinse, and comb, and condition.
I am thankful for sunshine, and spiderwebs that catch the sunshine in the backyard and shimmer like jewels.
I am thankful for sandboxes, and baseballs (and bats) and big tractors that dig in the dirt.
I am thankful for words, both written and spoken.
I am thankful for Facebook. I found an old friend this week, and I am excited to have made a connection with my past.
Most of all, I am thankful for the gift of life. Every morning I wake up, with breath within me, and a heart beating strong. I have been thinking about death a lot lately, and though I am eager to see my Savior, and will not be sorry to leave this sad body behind, I am so glad to have each new day here. I like life!

Yeah for finger nail polish remover. I had started to dislike finger nail polish remover because I spilled some on my laptop and my number keys and mouse had quit working. But 5 months later, my keyboard and mouse are working again! I guess it finally dried out. :)

Ok, I must have missed something. I'm going to have to read back. How did you get glue and nail polish in your hair? Husbands are true blessings - I'm with you there.
