    Skippy, he's been looking for, and had some interviews already, for jobs as a mechanic - then hopefully be sponsored to get into apprenticeship training. He's now got the equivalent of second year apprentice in schooling, now just needs to catch up on work hours in the field.

    But the stinker isn't going to wait - he is starting Monday back working for the same company he did the two years previous to going to school, as a labourer for a properties management place. They are being very flexible with him - he'll be able to leave during the day for job interviews, etc. - they are SO good to him!

    I get to go visit my 87-year-old Grandma this weekend; she's now my only surviving grandparent. I am so thankful that I have been able to have a wonderful relationship with her over the years... I wasn't so lucky with my Grandfather (Mom's Dad), who died 10 years before I was born. I treasure the relationships I have and have had with my grandparents; they have taught me so much and enriched my life with their love, guidance and wonderful personalities

    To all the SC grandparents: your relationships with your grandkids are some of the most important in their lives, not just yours! Congrats to you all for being awesome role models!

    Glad to hear things are working out for your son! It sounds like he's on track for a great career... my DH is an auto tech, has been with the same dealership for 15 years, and loves the trade! It might not be glamourous, but as DH always says: "You might get dirty, but you'll always have food on the table!"

    Thanks, glowworm, it's so very true. He could have really gone into anything he wanted, had flirted with the idea of university for engineering, but decided he wanted to go the trades route - and especially with apprenticeship, so he could earn as he learned.
    Today is his graduation - he already received an award (expensive set of rachet wrenches) for perfect attendance, and he's maintained an "A" average! I'm thankful he took school very seriously, and worked hard!

    Right at the moment I am thankful for the wood stove in the cabin for tonight. The temp is going down to plus 2 but feels damp and cooler then that.

    I'm so very thankful my son has gotten his first job in his field (different than what I posted above!), and he started work yesterday. He's happy, and that means we are too!

    Thankful for the people who get involved in their community & understand the importance of the simple gift of a bit of time to raise awareness for very important issues & causes.

    This picture is from 100.5 KRUZ-FM Walk a Mile in Her Shoes. A walk for the YWCA.

    Partipants collected donations, shoes or slippers were donated in advance & then returned. Just think more people could give the gift of a bit of their time the difference you can make in the life of someone who is in need.

    Thankful DD took me up on my offer and we went to Timmies for a bit. It is meaning so much more to me these days.

    I am thankful for so many things: my 1 month old GD! My job that allows me to able to stay on days that I am not feeling so great (like today). My 2 wonderful sons, my yard that I love to get out in and play in the mud growing flowers and veggies and fruit for my family. My only grandma that I have left and so much more. Its easy to forget all the good things sometimes. Have a great day everyone, any day above ground is a good day. My God bless all those who need it today.
