Thankful Thursday

This week has been one of those weeks where I am thankful for many things.  One of the big things that I will share today is our family time.  Hubby has a job that has a really crazy schedule.  He works two days off  then he is off two days, works a few weeks on day shift and then works a few weeks on night shift, but this allows us to have so much more family time.

Today is a weekday, but he is off.  With Will not yet in school, we are able to make plans on the spur of the moment.  Yesterday we decided that today would be one of those days.  We are going out to lunch in the city (or the closest thing to a city we have) with friends.  From there we will spend time together shopping and being together as a family.  We will end our day with a nice dinner at home.  This is the kind of time that not every family gets to spend together.  For this time, I am thankful!  This is a time in our lives that we will always remember.  Next year will be totally different with Will in school.  We will have so much more going on and so much less time to do it all.

So what are you thankful for today? 

Thankful Thursday is hosted this month by Laurie at Women Taking A Stand.  Hop on over and join us!
