snow day #4

It's been 3 days of "ice" and we haven't had school all week except Monday. Alex has been in Austin all week, so except for a few visits, it's just been Oscar and I. I am not complaining. It's been actually really peaceful. I only wish Alex could have been here all week. Alex came home Thursday afternoon to beat the next storm coming. YAY! I sure do miss him when session is going on.

About 11pm or so, looked out my back door and it is snowing! You would think that I would be tired of this... I am not!! I love it! SO, day 4 is a big gift! Such a day I can be so thankful for.

Alex made it home safely! I still love my best friend. I am so thankful that God has blessed me with such an awesome man to share my life with. He has been such a great father, an example that both of our kids admire and love. He has integrity and wisdom and I do not deserve such a great guy.

Another thing I am thankful for on this beautiful morning of snow day #4 is my family. Lindsey and Carr, Brady, Mom and Dad, Denise and her family and DeeAnn , her kids and new love, Mike. we all talk "frequently!" We have fun together. We share in the good and the bad and there is a true "family" bond that we share. It is a bond that extends to the Digby and the Higginbotham side of our little clan.

I am also thankful for my friends. My friends that are there always, my anytime friends, the ones that have endured through the years, through kids growing up, through different phases of our lives and through the storms. We are not always lucky enough to meet people and they are "true friends." We do get hurt, we do get disappointed sometimes that someone might not be who they appear, but it always shines through. I have some really sincere friends that are there through it all.

Ok, it's time to wake up Alex and Oscar. Time for Alex's favorite thing to do on a Friday morning. He loves to go see friends early at What-a-Burger. I think I might just get to join him on this snowy morning off!
