Things to be thankful for when moving:

Even though moving is a horrendous event, I have found a few things to be thankful for!
Friends that are so much more thoughtful than I . My dear friend Tara from Texas ordered us pizzas for dinner yesterday. The pizza guy came to my door and I told him that I didn't order pizza and he told me that it was from "A Tara in Texas!" The kids and I all started screaming!! Woo Hoo! Thanks again Tara...you're the best!
Then I am so thankful for Emilie Barnes. In one of her organizational books, she gives advice on packing. I have every box numbered, room to go to listed and all the items in the box written on it. Then I have an index card for each box with a list of what is in it that I keep in a recipe box. That way if I need a specific item,I can go to my cards and find the number of the box that it is in and not have to dig through all those 500 million boxes! Fabulous!

Finally, I am so thankful for faces like this to break up all the craziness!

Too Many Kids In The Bathtub said...

I only wish I could do more for you all. You are such a wonderful family and such a blessing to me and my family. I never would have thought that the Lord would have answered my prayers for a friend like you in the way he did. He is an amazing God!!!!!!! It gives me such joy to know that it was a surprise and that the kids got excited. Love you all!!!!!!!!
