Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Owen really got into...and this is no joke. He loved it!

Me! Evelyn has the camera now...

 So after the park we got smoothies and headed over to Target where I got some clothes and stuff, than we went back home.  We went out to Olive Garden that night for dinner and came home and watched a movie and had cake.
Now my birthday party was a whole different story.  It was just as fun, but in different ways.
This year I had a combined sleepover with two other friends at my house.  It was a lot of fun.  We went to the mall for a scavenger hunt, which was so much fun and has lots of stories on its own.  We had pizza and soda for dinner, played Catch Phrase and Just Dance and then watched Maleficent. 
All the girls. 
Us, three girls on the right are the birthday girls!
These were the party 'thank you' gifts.  Bookmarks.
