"...where there's life, there's hope..."
- Brian C. Houston
Happy Thankful Thursday! I feel like so much has been going on lately. The weather's changing and I've been trying to get the kids' wardrobes situated. And speaking of weather keep us in prayer because we have Hurricane Joaquim coming through this weekend. We've already had a heavy storm that left some trees and a few light poles down and now this.
I'm not really worried about flooding in our side of town, but the strong winds could be a huge issue since we're surrounded by trees. Hopefully, we won't have any power outages or anything. This week one of my aunts had to be admitted to hospital, but thankfully she is doing okay and is in good spirits. I got to talk to her on the phone on Tuesday and she had me cracking up. I was definitely feeling homesick by the time our conversation ended. Keep her in prayers please.
I'm super excited, nervous and thankful to announce that there are going to be some major changes coming to the blog. YUMMommy is getting a new look and a new home very soon. I'm hoping and praying that the transition goes very smooth as I have some sponsored work that I will need to get knocked out on time. And of course, I don't want the blog down for extended period of time because I'll miss you guys.
Moo got her progress report from school today and I'm grateful to announce that she's acing everything. Like she's above her reading level for the beginning of the year and almost to where she needs to be for the end of the year and school isn't even halfway over yet. Of course, it was no surprise that she's kicking butt in math too! She doesn't play about her numbers or her books. I'm not sure if she'll be able to skip a grade if she keeps learning at the rate she's learning.
She told me that she was bored with her work because she learns it so fast. And once she has the hang of something, she's ready to go on to the next thing. JJ is continuing to make progress with his therapy and will be starting more therapy to help manage some of his sensory issues. My little guy has overcome so much and we've come such a long way. I'm beyond grateful at the leaps he's made since starting therapy
Lastly, I'm thankful for hope. As the quote above says, as long we have breath in are bodies, hope out there. Life can beat us down or certain things can get us so discouraged that we start to believe differently. But don't throw in the towel. Hang in there and keeping pushing because your breakthrough is coming. I'm speaking from personal experience.
Keeping your eye on the prize and stay working towards your goals. Hard work pays off eventually, but you have to have the patience to wait for it.
What are you giving thanks for this week?
