with thanksgiving

I've been thinking a lot today about being thankful.  After all, in Phillipians 4:6-7 it says to present our requests, with thanksgiving...

Although there is uncertainty all around me, it sure helps to make a list of what I'm thankful for...

Today in particular I'm thankful for:

  • A friend who I spent all day cooking and catching up with.  Lots more freezer meals!
  • A mom who happily watches our son, and a son who loves his Nammie.
  • The fact that it's cool enough outside that we don't have to have the air running right now.  
  • That Benjamin's Moms surgery seemed to have went well and the doctors are hopeful!
  • This kicking baby boy.  When I sit down he kicks and pushes even more.  I can't wait to meet him.
  • Maternity clothes from friends.  I am thankful to have always borrowed the majority of my maternity clothes from friends.  I realized I didn't have much for cooler weather and got a bag from one friend today and over the weekend another bag from another friend.  Praise.
  • A dresser in the nursery stocked with newborn baby boy clothes and diapers.  I can't wait to see the things Anderson wore on this lil guy.
  • A husband who came home after having to go into work to officially shut down his office with a good attitude and a willing heart to help with some of the projects in the garage.
That sure helps.  Doesn't it?  And for the sake of remembering these times, here I am at 31 weeks.
