This has been on very exciting week for the Freeman family and we are happy to share our fifth "Thoughtful Thursdays" event with you. We will be doing this every week and we would love for everyone to join in and do something nice for someone out there.

Okay, here is how our "Thoughtful Thursdays" works.

You all are going to go out in to this crazy world and do something EXTRA nice for someone else. You can do something nice for someone you love, someone you don't love, or someone you you have never had the chance to love and come back here to share about it each and every Thursday.

God has shown Himself through Kayleigh and we need to glorify Him in all that we do. We need to touch other people with our kindness and spread the love of God with Kayleigh's story to everyone we possibly can. When you deliver your good deed to someone, let them know that they were touched by Kayleigh and share her website with them, so they too can join in on Kayleigh's journey and our "Thoughtful Thursdays" to glorify God.

This week, I want to spotlight Brandy Painter and her husband for their kind gesture to that poor waitress. It is a really cute story and you can read that story by CLICKING HERE. We have all had one of those days. Thank you so much Brandy for posting your Thoughtful Thursday and also, thank you tons for donating one of your Scentsy Warmers for the Donation/Giveaway. We received ours a while back and it has been the life of our kitchen. The variety of smells are unbelievable and I don't have to worry about burning down the house! (ha-ha) Seriously, if you have not gotten one of these for your house, it is a must! Go check them out.

NOW...You you have got to think outside the box and come back and share it with us and the world. Be creative and make your stories stand out. You never know, your story may be in the spolight for ALL to see, plus it wouldn't hurt to share good ideas for others to pay it forward.

Dear Feemans
I dont have a blogg but I have been following you all for along time know.You have a very sweet little girl and i pray for her everyday. My thoughtful thursday was actualy done yesterday by my 16 year old daughter Tabitha i was so proud of her and I wanted to share it with you.
There was this new girl that had started school on Tuesday and yesterday when they all went to lunch Tabitha and her friend went in the restroom and found this new girl sitting all by herself because she knew no one. So Tabitha ask her to come sit with them and they talk during lunch and found out she just lives right down the road from us. Tabitha invited her to come to the school dance on saturday with them and she said she didnt have a dress so tabby said she can wear one of hers and so after school tabby brought her to the house and she pick out a dress to wear to the dance. I just thought that was very nice and sweet. Kids can be so mean these days and she didnt have to do that she could have just walk out and left her sitting there all by herself but she didnt.
God bless you all

Sweet Thoughtful Thursday story! Reminds me of my two day stint as a waitress in college. I was awful!

I'd like to thank all my friends for donating to the Freemans!!!

I haven't talked to Aubrey and I'll be out of reach for the next few days so whoever is in charge of the referral package for me, you can just send everything to the Freemans.
Adam and Aimee, enjoy the gift cards and have fun shopping for your sweet girl!!! The gift cards for Brandon and Allyson are coming next week so maybe ya'll could have a shopping day for the whole family. You guys deserve a family day of fun!

Adam, I'll email you the blog info. we talked about in a bit.

Have a good weekend!
Love the Nadeaus

Along with prayers for Kayleigh, I am asking for prayers for the cities of Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN as they brace for the cresting of the Red River on Friday or Saturday. The crest is expected to be 41' and the dikes are 43' high. Please pray that the dikes hold and the cities remain dry! Thank you!

Jenn/Lindsey/Kirsten - It is going to take some time to sit down and add it up, but we plan to do that today and post the total tonight for all to see. Thanks for your patience :)

Peggy - that is an adorable story.

Bexx - We will be praying!

God Bless,
