Thankful Thursday

This past weekend we celebrated my niece's 7th birthday down at my mom's.  Can't believe she's grown up in such a short amount of time.  She reads chapter books, uses big words correctly, is good at math and is pretty good at domestic stuff around the house.  I know some kids her age who can barely dress themselves. So, I am thankful that God has blessed me to be a part of her life and for making her such an intelligent young girl.

I am also thankful for the time I got to spend with my family.  We got to sort out some major issues and move on from some stuff.  And although there was a sour note towards the end with one of my siblings, I am thankful that I am learning not to let my family walk over me.  I have struggled with this for years because I love my family.  However, I am in a place where I love myself more and demand respect at all times!
I am thankful that God has been sending me signs.

  Lately, we have been stressing out about a few things.  But God reminded me that He is in charge and no mountain is too tall or heavy for Him to move.  I'm trusting and believing Him to help us resolve the situations.

I am thankful for the fact that Moo loves books and has such a great imagination.  That's rare in kids her age now days.  It warms my heart to see that I am doing something right.  I am thankful that JJ took a few steps unassisted yesterday.  I would have loved to have caught it on camera. I do hope it's not much longer until he is fully walking.

And while on the subject of JJ, I'm thankful that we are going 13 months strong with breastfeeding!  More on that later.

What are you thankful for?


  1. I am thankful for a successful potty training experience. I really thought it was going to be tough. I am also thankful that for last two years my husband and I got to live close to family. As a military spouse that has meant more to me than my family will ever know. We'll be moving again soon and I will miss them so much!

  2. I am thankful for air conditioning. I was just watching the news and there are many still without any type of air conditioning. They are suffering and dying. It's just sad.

  3. I'm thankful that I spent the day at the park with my family feeding ducks, eating snoballs and swinging!!! Such a simple but wonderful day!!

  4. im always surprised when the babies in the family are getting older! i am thankful for the somewhat cooler weather and pillows at helps me sleep better!
