First Week...continued

We are writing down things we are thankful for this month and pinning them in the kitchen so we can talk about them together.  It's amazing when we look around just how many things we can list....and how much gratitude can change our perception and the way we do things around here.
Day 2-Jesus:  We are thankful for His love, and his grace.  As an aside, Madden went with me for yet another ortho appointment this week.  She saw the xrays on the screen and the wheels were turning..."so that takes a picture of your skeleton that's inside you?" "yes tinky"....hmmm "well Jesus Lives inside us is He in the picture?"

Day 3-Our House:  we keep bags in my car for when we see someone "who doesnt have a house to live in", (its amazing how many of these we have been able to give out). Wednesday after a crazy sequence of events in Poplar traffic on the way to get Murphy we were able to give one of our bags away.  We are so blessed to be able to do that, and so thankful that we have a home to live in.

Day 4-Our Friends:  We really couldnt make it without our friends around here.  Murphy and Madden have some precious friends in their lives and I cant begin to describe the gratitude I feel for the friendships I have.  Our family is truly blessed by so many special relationships with such amazing people.

Day 5-Ms. Michele:  She falls under friends and also family.  But there is no way to explain how she has walked with our family over the past 2+years, we will always love her and forever be grateful that God had her in store as part of our journey.

Day 6: School:  No denying Tinky loves to go to school...what a blessing that our children have the opportunity to grow and learn at such special places.

Day 7:  Ms. Allen and Ms. Graham:  Madden loves her teachers....I mean LOVES them.  We are thankful that she has had such special teachers this year and we are prayerful that she continues to be blessed by them!
Day 8:  Playhouse and jumping player:  Dont know why the trampoline is called the "jumping player" but it has been named that from day 1 and they are definitely thankful for such fun ways to play!

Day 9:  Dancing:  Yep sounds crazy but there's nothing we love more than to sing and dance around here...and my friends have some incredible moves!

To be continued....
