{Counting Gifts} Catching up Gratitude list

Deciding to have the hall repaired, and how much pressure it took off Craig.

Max and Craig planning pool sure snd other future projects. Dreams! 

The dogs to keep Lilly company.



Sisters singing Star Wars songs together.

Spring surprises growing everywhere, especially finding bluebonnets  by the pond.

Thankful that when my hydrolic pump decided to burst. I was pulling in to a parking space and not while driving and that it was a day my husband just came back to town, and I was in the route home from the airport. I had my two big kids to spend the time.
Best of worst situation. And my husband takes all the stress and worry away.
