Living life and loving it!

Windows down, wind blowing in my hair, giggles from the backseat, finding a cool splash pad where the littles could play, more giggles or actually all out laughter!  A yummy home cooked dinner with my family...  

What a gratitude list!  My niece and nephew are here visiting from Texas, where the morning temperatures have been near 90 or even in the 90s before noon.  My niece was surprised to see the thermometer in the car said it was in the mid 70's this morning.  She couldn't believe it!  We rolled the windows down and enjoyed the wind blowing in our hair.  I loved hearing her and her little brother giggling in the backseat.

Later, we found a cool splash pad where they could play and get wet.  They thought it was a little cool, maybe even cold at first.  My nephew LOVED it!  He ran through the water laughing and singing the whole time, "This is the best day of my life!  This is the best of my life when I came to spend the night with Aunt Sherri!"  That was music to my ears!  Then, there was a little mishap and the next thing I knew, he had raspberries on his elbow, knee and toe and more scrapes on his sides.  Poor guy!  Broke my heart!

A trip to Sonic, several bandages, a movie on the TV and his iPad and he was feeling much better.  LOL  He's precious.

Then we had a home cooked meal of chicken enchiladas, which was  wonderful, if I do say so myself.  

Next up, a lovely walk and then to finish the evening off~ ice cream.  It doesn't get much better than this.  Even with the ouchies, this is has been a day full of gratitude.

Thank you, Lord.


  1. Email me your chicken enchilada recipe or tell me where to find it. I am not a fan of chicken, but love cheese and especially green chili and cheese enchiladas. But I can try new stuff!

    1. You know I really wasn't sure about the chicken myself but these were DELICIOUS!! Even the littles ate it! So did Susan and she doesn't like much Mexican food. I'll type it up and send it to you. :)
