i’m thankful for this update on our girl. i had prayed specifically for encouragement on how she is doing this morning before receiving this email.
i’m thankful for sweet moments like this. i ordered cards with S’s photo on them, and both boys wanted to hold one. at dinner, ben would not put his down and just kept staring and smiling at her. oh. my. heart.
i’m thankful for this last day of this “30 days of thankfulness” project. i’m thankful for the lessons learned this month about the importance of a thankful heart. when you are giving thanks, you are clearly able to see God at work.
i’m also thankful for my last day of work! it still feels surreal. i do not have to go to work on monday. i get to stay home with my boys!!!! i’m thankful that God really pressed this on dave and my hearts and i gave my notice just one week before we saw our girl’s face! i am so thankful that i will have these next months to spend very focused, quality time with ben & nate before our family dynamic changes forever. i’m thankful that i don’t have to add work stress to my already fragile emotional state. i’m thankful that the boys will not have to rush off to school in the morning and return in the evenings tired and cranky from a long day. so many blessings are in store for our family and this is the start of a very special chapter. i’m immensely, overwhelmingly grateful.
|picking the boys up for the very last time from daycare…
they didn’t want to leave because they were playing in the sand box!
|a little “retirement party” for me!
thankful to good friends who had us over to celebrate!
