Give Thanks

I am thankful for....
My Jesus-He loves me, flat out loves me, and I'm in love with Him!

I am thankful for....
My John, aka-my baby daddy or otherwise known as "Gon Beda"
He rocks as a husband and a Daddy!  I COULD NOT ask for anything more!

I am thankful for....
my THREE beautiful baby girls
~Anna Claire's thirst for life, her questions, her debates, her laugh
~Ava's smile, her voice, her love, her sugars
~Alli's life, her warrior spirit, and every "first" because they all mean
so much more when you're told not to expect them
~I am thankful for every kiss, every hug, every snuggle, every su'ga (as Ava calls it), every "I love you Mommy," every word, every step, every tantrum, every beep of a monitor, every single thing any of my girls do....even if it drives me mad, I am thankful because I've seen just how precious life is and learned we can't take one single second for granted!

I am thankful for....
beating statistics and broken odds-past, present, and the ones yet to come 

I am thankful....
that I've found joy again in the small everyday moments
and that I now have a greater appreciation for my my husband and my baby girls!

I am thankful for....
every doctor, every nurse, every therapist, donor, and researcher that played a direct or indirect role in my life this past year.  Trust me...those doctors, nurses, and therapists had their work cut out for them in the process of getting Alli where she is today!  

I am thankful for....
the power of prayer and the thousands of warriors that have interceded for my family this year!  You all are simply A-mazing!  Gods on a role this year!!

I am thankful for....
a great group of sweet friends with soooo many different personalities, but yet still we're all so similar and have a great time together-despite we're seldom able to get together! 

I am thankful for....
A new birth of character, perspective, and priorities in my life!

and this Thanksgiving I am most thankful for....
life, family, miracles, grace, pj's all Thanksgiving day, and a Hogs win against LSU of course!!!
