I haven't been very good about keeping up with my blog. (Oops..) But I am newly inspired to start afresh. Through several different influences- mainly a friend's blog, and a life situation I find myself in- I thought of doing a "Gratitude Gifts" blog. Each day I will post a picture or something that I am grateful for. I find that lately I am focusing more on what's going on that I'm struggling with. What better way to counteract that then to focus on what I'm thankful for! After all, Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 to "give thanks in all circumstances". So here's my two cents on that :)
This little man of mine is almost always my first riser of the day. 6-6:30 am every day I can hear him tromping down the stairs, blanket in tow & ready to eat! My other two are often not awake until an hour (or two) later. So L and I get some time together every morning. He is a jewel. This kid knows how to make me laugh! The things he says and does are priceless. Last night, in the bath, I couldn't help but just crack up at his laugh! He's so adorable it's not even fair (I know I may be a bit bias about this, but others have said the same thing so...;) )! Anyways, I'm so grateful for this precious middle child of mine. He can drive me up a wall, and at the same time make my heart explode with love. What a precious gift he is to our family!
