What am I thankful for this year?
I just spent the last hour re-reading former posts here on my blog. I began at the beginning before Kyleigh was even born and read all the way up to this post. Wow! Not, wow as in I can read, but wow what blessings have been given to us. Here is a list of my wow moments in review---
1- my church
2- my God
3- my family (mom, dad, husband, grandparents, great-grandparents...)
4- my friends (all of them)
5- my children
6- my neighbors
7- our doctors (both pediatrician and at Duke)
8- our struggles
9- our triumphs and defeats
10- major changes
I was reminded of the powerful prayer warriors that surrounded me during pregnancy and following Kyleigh's birth, prior to surgeries while re-reading this blog. I was reminded that even when I was at my lowest, God was still there and even when we felt defeated, later on we would see we still won. I was reminded of the many struggles and many tears shed over the heartache and sickness but then at the same time show the growth and major changes that both girls have gained and how beautiful they are to me. I was reminded that I have the best doctors in the world taking care of my children and that I even have personal cell numbers for some of them. I was reminded that my neighbors have and always will come to my call when needed. I saw through pictures and writing that my family is supportive and loving and strong. This is what I'm thankful for and this is what keeps me going.
Happy Post Thanksgiving Everyone...blessings to all as you prepare for Christmas this year.
