especially as mothers of sons; are we sending conflicting message to our sons if we say it's ok for women to watch this type of thing, but warn them of the dangers of pornography? Do not know much about the movie, but found this an interesting read, backed with scripture. And, even if you don't have sons, it's still something to think about!
I know it's kind of cliche, but this time of year does make me stop and think about my blessings. Just a short list of what is on my mind and heart today (in no particular order!):
*through some thoughtful, prayerful, and somewhat drastic measures, we are on our way to being debt-free!
*precious, healthy grandchildren
*a patient, loving husband
*the chance to spend Thanksgiving Day with 2 sons, one darling daughter-in-law, and one delightful grandson
*relationships with married children's in-laws that allows for lots of sharing time - all through the year
*a caring church family
*forgiveness through Jesus Christ - something I need to remember not to take for granted
I'm sure there's more, but those things are making me feel very blessed today.
Happy Thanksgiving to all my Pleo-friends.
This weekend I taught Jackson how to play the "memory game" - the Cars (a.k.a. Lightning McQueen) version. He got pretty good at it, but of course I kind of "let" him win. After the 2nd or 3rd game, he looked at me and said "Nana, you are not very good at this game!" Cracked me up. Ross said I shouldn't be letting him win if he's smart enough to know he's better at it than me! We'll see what happens next time we play. :)
Summertime is here. Another batch of kindergarten kiddos ready for 1st grade (at least I hope they are!). Now time to clean some closets, read some books, and catch up on Law and Order on the DVR.
Oh, and of course, spend LOTS of time with all the grandbabies!
Last night I was lucky enough to have the boys (Jackson and Andrew) to myself for a few hours, while their parents went out on a "date". We took a little walk with Andrew in the stroller and Jackson on his bike. As we got back to the house, Jackson turned around and said "Nana, you are my best buddy."
I nearly cried, it was so sweet, so sincere and so spontaneous. I hope I will always be his best buddy, or at least one of his best buddies.
