This week has been hard one for me. I have been very emotional. Parts of my life Id sooner forget have been somewhat freshen up hopefully for the last time ever. However, today is Thursday and because of Him I can be thankful. I can also be thankful because it is over. On Tuesday I had to go to Auckland to testify against a violent man. This was very hard for me. There was a possibility that the court-case would result in a hung jury. We prayed it wouldnt. It didnt. However, this afternoon I was rung by my detective and informed that the man was found not guilty. He is now free again (he had served sometime already).

  • Today I can be thankful – although it didnt turn out the way we hoped, the way I know without a doubt it did happen, it is over.
  • I am thankful too for all the supportive friends, family (my sister, my cousins and Muzz’s family) and bloggie pals over the last few days and for those that have been aware of this for even longer (3 years). I love you all and thankyou most sincerely
  • I am thankful to Muzz for all that he is and does and for all the babysitting he has had to do in relation to this.
  • My boys who are always eager to give me a hug when I get down about this. Hugs always help. Keep them coming my darlings
  • My God My Rock. I was told that I am a strong woman the other day. I dont think I am. I just cope and often go to pieces. However, I never forget that “there is a hand guiding [my] steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.” quote from Paulo Coelho. I thank Him for when He calls me to Him and allows me to bask in Him. I thank Him for His Word and the fact that He has lead others (musicians) to share their musical gifts with us and so allow us to mediate upon Him. I am so thankful for Tuesday morning when He surrounded me yet again with His love, support and guidance and for Him again on Tuesday afternoon when He was right beside me protecting me. Thank you Lord everything is possible though You.

Thankful Thursday – A toy, clothes and washing

Yesterday morning just as I was getting home from dropping Billy at school my next door neighbours friend met me in my drive way. She had a bag of goodies for us. A toy and some really good quality clothes. She was going to give them to her nephew but they have done a runner from unpaid bills etc. So she thought of us and blessed us instead. I gave her a big hug and Daniel spent all yesterday morning playing with his new toy.

For the last month or so I have been washing my laundry once a week at a laundromat. My washing machine is broken. Its not so bad. I can get 4 loads of washing done in 4 washing machines in 1/2 an hour for $NZ16. However I have been doing it on what is my busiest day of the week (Thursday) already which just makes it even busier. Well yesterday my wonderful next door neighbour came over for a visit and we were talking about the windy windy weather.

I said “I hope its like this tomorrow it will be good for my washing to dry”

and she said “use my machine and do it this afternoon. ”

She doesnt want anything for it (but I might buy her a little something anyway to say thanks). So today is a little less busy 🙂 and Im a bit richer than normal 🙂

  • My friend from the church whom took Billy out for the day so Saturday.  I pray that this man may be positive guiding influence upon Billy.
  • All the concern and support I have been given by friends and bloggie friends about Billy and his behaviour.  Thanks everyone it means a lot
  • A wonderful day out with Muzz and Daniel at the fire station
  • Lovely weather where it still feels most days as though we are still having summer.  Also great to get the washing dried fast 🙂
  • My wonderful next door neighbour whom knew about what to do when one blows a fuse in ones house
  • My microwave as the oven still not working (something to do with the blown fuse yesterday).  I was still able to get dinner prepared and on the top asap so we werent rushing around to get to youth band practise last night.  In fact we were able to do the dishes before we went.  Its lovely getting them done straight after dinner and not have dirty dishes staring at you.
  • Playgroup for the fun we have there and the fact that they gave me jars of stewed apple yummmmmmmm
  • Muzz for a wonderful massage that helped me get over a sore arm
  • The way Billy rushed inside and tried to help me when I fell over the kitchen barrier and brused myself badly
  • Being able to spend some qualioty time with a friend at church while the youth band practise was happening

I have 2 BIG thank yous and am so GRATEFUL to these 2 people people this week.

  • First of all Muzz for giving me a wonderful Mothers day. He cooked me breakfast in bed and helped the boys give me some wonderful pressies. Love you hun
  • On Monday afternoon we had an IEP (Individual Educational Plan) meeting at Billy’s school with his teacher and special learning teacher. It was a hard meeting for me. While Billy has improved academically since September last year. His behaviour of late at home has not been good. Hes been lazy, lying and his attitude has sucked. Muzz came with me to the meeting and I ended up crying. I was scared that Billy was turning out like his sister. We had big trouble with her last year. I feared it was all going to start all over again. I blamed myself for Billy’s behaviour. If one child lies, back chats and causes trouble you can say well thats her but here was Billy following very similar behaviour. Anyway in the meeting I cried and Mrs W Billys teacher whom I get along with well. Hugged me and almost cried along with me. Shes so nice. The support I got from her was wonderful. She is going to lend me a very good book she has. She along with my wonderful next door neighbour said to come and see her whenever I need to. As we were leaving Mrs W gave me a candle and told me to go and have a glass of wine at home. As we walked out the door Billy gave me a BIG hug and said sorry to me. He has been a bit better since then.

  • I was reading this friends blog this morning and I am grateful that Daniel seems to be a healthy, happy and well baby. It might not have been this way. We agreed that foregoing certain foods etc is worth it for a healthy baby when one is preggy. What really scared me with Daniel is that I didnt know I was preggy for the 1st 3 months. The week before I found out I was preggy I went to a wedding and reception party of some very special friends. There I drank wine and spirits. I am so thankful that he seems to be ok.
  • I am grateful that Muzz was able to bring my spare key over yesterday when I accidently left my keys inside when my keen boy wanted to go on our outing
  • to all my friends and bloggie friends who cared when I hurt my big toe
  • to Muzz who looked after the boys on Saturday so I could go on the training course
  • My spare washing machine that was able to spin a load of washing when my usual machine wouldnt
  • My pressie from my cousin in the UKtt.jpg
