Thankful Saturday?



Well, I wasn't going to post anything today. I was just sitting here with , you know who(Emmie) , and we were going through our morning routine, bottle for her, coffee for me. Then we check in on every one of our bloggy friends. My goal is to do this before the rest of the "circus" wakes up. I noticed the date, it's the 22nd, My little Lovie is 10 months old today! Double digits month! Where in the world did ten months go? That's over 300 days! Emmie has been bringing us joy and laughter for over 300 days almost a whole year!




I know today is not Thankful Thursday or Sunday, but today is Thankful Saturday, just this week, for me anyway.




How thankful am I for this sweet gift from God.




I'm thankful for her health.




For her smile that fills my heart.




I'm thankful that I have a house full of children who love Emilia as much as I do.




I'm thankful that I live in a community that embraces Em as their own.




For a patient and forgiving husband, who tolerates more than he should.




I'm thankful for the laughter and screams that fill my home, the silence without them would be deafening.




I am grateful for bloggers who are now friends who care enough to be interested in what goes on in my life and the lives of my loved ones.




Most of all I am in wonder and complete thankfulness that The Lord for some reason,that I hope to figure out, looked upon us with approval and entrusted us with Emilia.


One more thing I'm thankful for... blueberry pie. Yup, Emilia will chew ansd swallow pie. Good thing we picked soooo many. I will be busy making pies for the Princess.
