Thankful Tuesday: Dragon DNA and Life Plans

  My boys on the way to church on Sunday:   A: Brooksie, when I'm a rock star your kids can come to my show. B: Okay. Me: Brooksie, are you going to be a daddy when you grow up? B: Yeah. A: I'm not. Because I'm not getting married. I'm going to be a really good uncle. B: I'm not getting ...

Thankful Tuesday . . . Revived!

It's been a long time since it was Thankful Tuesday around here, maybe an entire year. A friend recently told me she'd missed Thankful Tuesdays, which was a surprise to me, actually.
