Tonight I am so thankful for our Middle Daughter — Deborah — or Beeba — or just plain Beebs. It’s her birthday today, and she has been helping get ready for the packing of Thanksgiving Boxes at church tonight. I am sure there are ways that she would have rather spent this evening, but she has been a really good sport.
I don’t know what I would do these days without her. She runs errands for me, keeps me from having to go too many steps, just does things over and over again that I can hardly manage to do any more. She has so many dreams, so many talents, so many plans — and often I listen to her talk and enjoy so many ideas and experiences vicariously. She has gone places I will never go. She has opportunities that are forever out of my sphere. She has always been far smarter than her mama and daddy, and yet she puts up with us, choosing to live at home when it would be far more interesting somewhere else.
So my Thankful Blog for this day is for Deborah. I am so very thankful for you, girlie. I am so glad God sent you to our house! You’ve been an incredible blessing to our family. Just so you know– We love you!
