Thankfulness-Day 25

Now that it's Black Friday, I'm so thankful that God allowed us to do our important Christmas shopping (Matthew & Lucy) way before today. I'm thankful that there's nothing, no great deal or important item, that I need, ahem, want badly enough to get out in that craziness! So glad we're done! :)

Thankfulness-Day 24

Happy Thanksgiving! Today, I'm thankful for my awesome family and the great time we got to spend together today! I'm also thankful for that yummy Thanksgiving meal, complete with the pumpkin cheesecake I requested. ;) I know it's a shallow thankfulness post, but I truly am blessed beyond measure. Thank you God for your abundant blessings in my life!

Thankfulness-Day 22

I'm thankful today for great meteorologists and technology that help us know so far in advance if there is dangerous weather coming our way. Today was probably one of the most ominous days weather-wise that we've had since the April 27th storms in Alabama. I'm thankful today that the weather died down before it really did anything here, but I'm also thankful that we have lots of great professionals watching out for us when the threat is there.

Thankfulness-Day 21

I'm thankful today for my sweet James and Matthew who took care of our Christmas tree today. It's not James' favorite thing to do, but he lugged everything down from the attic and put it together by himself. I truthfully did very little, mainly because this growing Lucy inside of me causes my back to hurt like a beast. After James put it together, sweet Matthew did 75% of the decorations. Is it exactly how I would've done it? Nope, but I wouldn't change a thing. :)

Thankfulness-day 20

Today I'm thankful for two things.
1. Healing.
2. My dear friends Pat and Kristie who have made sure that I never had to give myself a single 17A hydroxyprogesterone injection. I wasn't looking forward to sticking those huge needles in myself to keep Lucy baking, but they made sure I never had to. :)

Thankfulness-Day 19

Today I'm thankful for good books. There's nothing like the ability to take others to a whole new world in the simple pages of a book. What a gift!

Thankfulness-Day 18

I'm thankful today for Phenergan. I had morning sickness during my entire pregnancy with Matthew, so I can deal with it. However, I'm thankful for my Phenergan rx because, for some reason, the morning sickness really does something dangerous to my body in this pregnancy. Because of that Phenergan, my morning sickness isn't nearly as frequent. Rather than multiple times each day, it's just a few times a week.

Thankfulness-Day 17

I'm thankful today that I only had to have my finger pricked at my OB appointment instead of a full-blown, no pun intended, blood draw.

Thankfulness-Day 16

Today I'm thankful for 34 weeks of pregnancy! This was the goal my MFMs gave me and Lucy and I have made it! Glory to God for His protection and provision! :)

Thankfulness-Day 15

I'm thankful today for our microwave of almost 10 years. Sure, we said goodbye to her today, but she served us well.

Thankfulness-Day 14

Today I'm thankful for having all of our Christmas shopping done for our kids! What a huge relief. I'm thankful for God blessing us in such a way that we aren't scrambling to figure it all out at the last minute. I'm thankful now that we'll be able to make it special, not because of what they'll receive, but the memories they'll make celebrating Christ's birth together in a magical way.

Thankfulness- Day 13

I'm thankful today for Sunday School and the many great classes I've been a part of through the years. I love having a great peer group to dig into The Word with each week.

Thankfulness-Day 12

Today I'm thankful for the awesome youth groups we've been honored to serve over the last ten years. What a blessing to see these kids grow up and impact the world around them.

Thankfulness-Day 11

I'm thankful today for our Veterans. So many have served and fought just so that I may live the life that I have right now. Because of them, our kids have a better tomorrow.

Thankfulness-Day 10

Today I'm thankful for James being able to go to the David Jeremiah Pastor's Breakfast. When you're in ministry, it's especially refreshing to have that time to be refilled by another pastor who truly understands the trials and blessings of servanthood. So thankful he had that chance to be refreshed.

thankfulness-day 9

Today I'm thankful for great prenatal care. Even though this has been a fairly boring high risk pregnancy, I'm thankful for my MFM docs at UAB who've really watched me and Lucy very carefully.

Thankfulness-Day 8

I'm so thankful for Star Wars today. It seems a little silly, for sure, but it brings Matthew such joy. Plus, there's nothing quite as entertaining as listening to him play out his scenes from the stories.

Thankfulness-Day 7

Today I'm thankful for homeschooling. It's such a blessing to be able to spend these wonderful moments with Matthew. I'm so glad I don't have to share him in that way.

Catching up... Today I'm thankful for a great day in God's house. :)

Thankfulness-Day 5

Today I'm thankful for the amazing husband I have. From the fact that he signed up to coach Matthew's basketball team to the Taco Bell he brought me to the library run he did for me to the sweet back rubbing he did the moment he walked in the door, I'm so blessed. He's my best friend and I'm thankful for each moment I have with him. :)

Thankfulness-Day 4

Today I'm thankful for worship music. There's nothing like a song to express every word you wished you knew how to communicate to our God. I'm so thankful that others have found the words to express what I've always wanted to say.

Thankfulness-Day 3

I'm so thankful for my sweet little Love. Our Matthew is truly amazing and we're so blessed to have him. I'm also thankful to have these homeschooling moments with him. It truly is a gift to spend this much time with him each day. He's brings such joy!

Thankfulness-Day 2

Today I'm thankful for this sweet little Lucy and for a healthy pregnancy. 32 weeks down! Who knows how many to go? I'm thankful for these kicks, rolls, hicups, and even having to roll from side to side all night long. As hard as it's been, I'm thankful for it and savoring it. I may never get another chance to do this.

Thankfulness-Day 1

I find myself thankful for so many things. Today I'm thankful for God's provision and how it always shows up right on time!
