Thankful Thursday

Today, I’m thankful for…

An answer to the mystery of the missing bike.

A little boy, no longer searching for his lost love… aka his bike.

Good neighbor parents who discovered a bunch of bikes hidden in their woods, interrogated their young boys, and made the boys return the bikes they stole.

My husband’s bike (we didn’t know was missing) is back in the barn.

My little boys bike… well, they are still looking for it. But at least we know where to look now.

Here’s to good neighbors, doing the hard thing and teaching their little boys a lesson I’m sure they’ll never forget. Here’s to my little boy, who is working on forgiveness…

The boy and the bike, way back when it still had training wheels… two whole years ago.


Blessings sometimes come in crazy forms. Hard to recognize, they are blessings, nonetheless.

Hope you’ll look for blessings today, too. And if you like, please share a few of your blessings in the comments. :)
