Thankful Thursday-Family


It's been a while since the last time I participated in Thankful Thursday. Hopefully I'll be able to do it again every week, truly we are never out of something to be thankful for.

This week I am grateful for my family - my parents are here with us in the city and will be staying with my sister's family for a while. Thank you that finally they gave in to our request. It is hard for us to visit them so often in the province and we are worried most of the times as they were both old and living alone in our old home. Now  I can see them as often as I want to.

I am also very thankful about their health, my father stopped smoking years ago ( so no need to buy him  cigar humidors ) and I'm glad he did that. It helped him a lot, he's on medicines but for his age I consider him still healthy.  My mother is also doing good, strong and still very much willing to help her children and adores her grandkids to the max. She's also taking meds for sugar maintenance but other than that she's healthy. They're now both on their 70's but still fine. Thank God for that. 

Today, we also celebrate a niece birthday. She's my first niece and she's a joy to both her parents and to the whole family.  Thankful that she's been given to us :) 

That's me and her:
Happy 10th birthday Rachel!
Thank you Lord that I have a strong family relationship and that in tough times (like now) I can just be with them and be reminded that life is good :)
