What I Am Thankful For……

A mother's understanding

I am thankful that I have a supportive family.  My Mom lives across town and she is alway there to help us in any way possible.  Although my Father lives in Montana we talk with and about him often.  My Wife has 3 sisters in town that are also available to help us in any way possible.  That leads me to my wife…  She is not only a great wife but an excellent mother to our two kids.

Currently I am helping my mom sell my grandfathers house.  This is a house that he built himself in 1965.  It seems that since the day he moved in that he has not thrown a single thing away- not a nut, bolt, or bent nail.  I have come across newspapers from the late 60’s, magazines from the last 55ish years, and thousands of nuts, bolts, and screws.  He probably has 3 of every tool imaginable (he built houses and cabinets for a living).  We are doing an estate sale in early December and I have a pile of tools that I have no idea what they are used for.  I have come across some wonderful things as well.  An old brass outboard boat motor, lots of old camping gear, and my grandmothers canning supplies (he didn’t throw anything away!!!).  He has a collection of items that he found on the old Emigrant Trail, thing from the wagon train days.  I don’t know if it is worth anything but it sure is cool.  My son has especially enjoyed exploring Papas old things.  We still have another whole garage to go in our adventure so maybe I will have some more interesting things to write about.

Back to my wife.  This whole grandfather house thing has taken away from the family time for the last couple of weeks.  I am thankful that I have a supportive, loving, and understanding wife……
