Thankful Thursday!

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

I am linking up with Sonya from Truth 4 the Journey today for Thankful Thursday. It is easy to do, you just share the 5 things you are thankful for this week!

I must say this has been a GREAT week and I have many things to be thankful for. God has truly blessed our lives and I can't thank him enough, to God be the Glory.

The first thing I am thankful for as always is the fact that God chose ME! He made ME in his image and chose to SAVE ME! Now that will always be on the top of my list, because without the sacrifice of his son we wouldn't have the life we have.

Secondly I am so thankful that my Baby is safe! I have been so scared and afraid with this pregnancy. I as a human worry, though I try very hard not to, it isn't easy. God has granted me peace throughout this time, and Tuesday the sight of my baby moving and active in my womb, I was elated! The blood clots are gone and all looks GREAT, but please continue to pray that all goes well.

The third thing I am thankful for is my family. They are such a great support and loving. We have all been put through the ringer with this pregnancy, but now we can all relax a bit. I am thankful that Joe and the boys pitched in to make my life easier and that they even did it without complaint. My husband is showing my boys what a real Man of God and Father should be!

The fourth thing would be the fact that my Sister in Law is doing some better. She was put in the hospital yesterday and gave us all quite a scare, but hopefully she is on the road to a full recovery! I was honored to spend yesterday evening with her boys and loving on them while Mommy was away. I know they will all be happy when Mommy is home! We love you Val!

The fifth thing this week is that I get to spend the weekend with family! I am so excited to see my parents and brothers tomorrow night! I am also excited to be able to go to a baby shower honoring my cousin on Sunday, and then a family reunion on Monday. God has truly blessed me with an amazing Christian Family and I am so thankful to have them in my life!

I hope all of you have many things to be thankful for this week also!

Glad your sil is going to be o.k. also glad that your baby is doing well and growing.

I remember how happy I was to hear their little hearts beating and to know that they were o.k. (I had break thru bleeding with both). Nothing like it!

I am so thankful that the clots are gone and you are both doing well! I had clots with my first child. It happened with me 3 times (at 7months, 8 months and then on my due date) My oldest was born at 40 weeks and while she was tiny, all was well. God is good! I am sure you won't have any more issues but even more that God is in control.

Happy labor day,
Sonya Lee
