So, last Thursday came and went, without a Thankful Thursday. It wasn't that I was not Thankful, but that I was so busy that I just totally missed the fact that Thursday had come and gone, and I had not posted. I think that is the first time I've done that since I started Thankful Thursday! I hope it is the last! I truly am Thankful. I couldn't leave last week out, so I have added it to this week instead. In the spirit of Baseball season, we will say that this week is a double header.
