Thankful Thursday #11--Back from vacation!

I've so much to be thankful for this week--and it's all about last week when my husband Rob and I had 7 whole days together in Mexico on the Riviera Maya. What more can I say? Uninterrupted time to walk along the beach and hold hands and talk and relax and just be with my best friend . . .

The photos are just glimpses at some of our special moments--the Gulf of Mexico, a sunrise, Rob and I getting ready to tandem parasail--and, yes! that's us up in the air under that parachute!

I am so, so thankful for our older kiddos who kept up with our 7 year old so that we didn't have to worry about her while we enjoyed ourselves. One of my favorite moments was the day before Rob and I left. My daughter, Amy, and I were making a Starbucks run and she looked at me and said, "I'm so glad you and Dad still like each other--and that you want to spend a whole week together!"

Me too!

I also came back to find out I'd received a couple blogging awards from Nancie and Sharon B: the Friendship Award and the Share the Love award. They both blessed me so much!

Thanks to Iris at Sting My Heart for encouraging so many of us to be thankful--for creating a place on the Internet where our lives intersect in gratitude!



  • Welcome back! Beth...I thought maybe you were here in Mazatlan when you had the parasailing.
    Did you do that? After 12 years of watching and seeing that, I still have not! I'm glad that you enjoyed your time away! Refreshed!

    I came bearing the same awards that you mentioned from Nancie and
    SharonB. I gave Sharing the Love to ALL on August 1st...and Nancie just pased on the FRIENDSHIP one so I was coming to bless you also!
    Thank you for the encouragement you share with me! It is a joy and honor to call you Friend! Sharing
    still with you LOVE & Friendship!

    My message was:Stop by and visit with me soon... there will be something special waiting for you. It's in Tuesday the 12th of August post!

    God bless You!I can see HE is...!
