Thankful Thursday


Lately I have felt like I come here with a list of complaints. In fact today I had to laugh a wonderful friend wrote me a email and asked me if my day had gotten any better. I said well did I tell you it was bad. She said no but I figure it had been a bad week. AKA..I think that could of meant ...you complain every freakin day so why would today be any different.

So today I will try a different approach. Because no matter what...I have so many thing to be thankful for and I need to focus on those more often then I have been lately.

I am thankful that this morning my sweet little boy told me that he loved to lay on my big soft fluffy tummy. Oh how I am glad I can make him happy. Ha

I am so thankful that today when I went for my treatment that I had a insurance policy that allowed me to go to a place that I wanted to go vs where I had to go. Not everyone is so blessed.

I am thankful that I took time to look over the river today as I crossed the causeway going for my treatment. What a beautiful place I live in. if I am forced to go to chemo atleast I get to see God's glory as I am on my way.

I am so very thankful that there are some choices to try to help Philip with his pain. While I am very anxious about this I am holding onto the faith that is the path God has lead us.

I am so very blessed that I am the mom of 4 wonderful children. Each their own individual person. What a special honor that I have been blessed with.

I am very blessed that God hand picked me to be Philip's mom. I would want no one else to be the one to take care of him on the good and the harder days. I look at him and I see the sweetest young man. God makes no mistakes. I have been so blessed with Philip.

In many ways I am blessed with my illness. It has caused me to slow down and think about what is really important. It has been a wake up call...

I could go on and on..

But I will end with this...
I am so very blessed to have a group of blog friends who care enough to check on us daily and make sure we are okay. I had NO idea anyone would ever even read my blog, and I never would of thought I would be so blessed to have such a wonderful support team. I feel like Philip and I have a awesome support team. Thank each of you VERY MUCH.

I have prayed that exact prayer more times than I can count. I too will forever be thankful that God chose me to be Abby's mom. Whether the days are easy or hard, I am so thankful He chose to bless us by placing Abby in our arms.

This is my first time here. I actually just came by to tell you that the randomly-selected winner of the Cheesecake Factory gift certificate is Joy from Joy to the Blog and to thank you for entering my giveaway, and for becoming a follower!

But I love your thankful list. I'm humbled by your positive attitude and praise for God in the shadow of illness for you and your son. I will certainly pray for you both. ((HUGS))
