Summertime Gratefuls

I have been very negligent this summer in posting about my gratefuls and tender mercies.  I came across the above meme on facebook yesterday, and tonight have decided to catch up a bit and post some of my summertime gratefuls tonight:  (I promise to be more regular with this blog from this day forward)

  • DD3 graduated with her BA degree and was offered a good full time job!
  • DD2 graduated with her Master's degree and was able to safely move herself halfway across the country to be near her family!  And get her old job back!
  • DD4 found a great summer job in a wonderful National Park where she gained work experience, new friends, and had time to relax, recreate, and rejuvenate after a successful freshman year in college!
  • DD1 received a promotion at work!
  • DS1 and his girlfriend were able to spend a very fun long weekend with us in July!
  • DS2 and DDIL were blessed to bring a brand new baby boy home from the hospital at the end of August!  If all goes well they will officially adopt in about 6 months!
  • We celebrated my Dear Father's 90th birthday in May!
  • We celebrated with my dear parents as they served as the Grand Marshals of my hometown's annual Fiesta Days parade!
  • We celebrated with DH's Mother's annual July Family Party!
  • I was able to spend time with each of my siblings during the summer!
  • We were able to procure a brand new red Volkswagen Jetta and now have reliable transportation!
  • We have received much needed rain to help water the gardens and lawns!
  • We have dined on fresh strawberries, blackberries, cherries, green beans, tomatoes, peppers, basil and squash from our own garden.  The potatoes and carrots and beets and corn look promising too.
  • We celebrated Labor Day weekend with all four dear daughters who helped us with a massive cleanup of the family business!!
  • We have been blessed with random acts of service from wonderful neighbors!
  • And much much more.  
We're very grateful for the new Jetta!
