Thankful Thursday

Click the picture for more Thankful Thursday participants

The past few days were a series of trips for everyone in the family (all except my son). First, there’s my brother’s wedding. Then, there's the individual business trip to Manila, for me and my BH.
Last Friday, everyone, including my brother and his bride-to-be wife, was supposed to board the earliest flight to Manila had things gone as planned. As it was, their flight was cancelled and moved to a later time because of aircraft mechanical trouble. Thankfully though, they were able to board at 5:30PM after an 11-hour delay. That was looong but that was better. More than that would have been difficult; it would have prompted the to-be-wed to postpone the wedding as it would be impossible for them to make it to their destination because of the good 7-hour land trip following the plane ride.

But very early on the wedding day itself, they safely arrived in La Union, where the wedding ceremony would be held. Thanks, thanks be to God.

I’m also thankful that my brother finally found his lifelong partner. May their union be blessed now and for always.

I’m thankful that while everyone was away, I was able to manage the goings on in our house. And that I survived that first night when I was home alone with my son, who was a little sick.

I’m thankful for my BH’s sister for keeping me company the second night.

I’m thankful that my parents, my mother’s brother and my sister made it safely back home.

I'm thankful that while I was out myself, I have my mother -as always- to take care of my son. I was really worried sick when she called me that Matt had fever. But the thought that I got my mother to attend to him was reassuring.

I’m thankful that (although we were not able to see each other there) my and my BH’s trip to Manila went well and that we arrived safely back to our bases.

I’m thankful that kiddo Matt has no fever since yesterday. Thanks God.

Whew! So there. It really feels good counting my blessings. Have a blessed week everyone.

Yeah, family -or having them- is one great blessing. I really couldn't imagine walking through Life without them.

I am glad to read that the wedding did take place and that everyone arrived safely. I rather have a delay than going on a plane that has mechanical problems :)
Glad to read that your son has no longer a fever...

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us this past week.

Be blessed today and always.
