Thoughtful Thursday: Gratefully Blessed

Happy Thursday!
I wanted to do one thing I'm grateful for each day of November. Well, it's the 21st, and I'm just getting started. So, I have quite a bit to catch up on. I am so grateful for our 3 little miracles! I know first hand the heartache of infertility. But I also met some of my closest friends because of it. Every single one of these ladies was placed in my path for a reason. And this year, we each celebrate with our little miracles. And then my pregnancy with the twins was extremely hard. 86 days in the hospital on bed rest hard. But it was worth every singe day I spent laying in that bed. I would do it again if I had to. I carried these miracle babies to 35 weeks. All along, God had promised me we would go that far. It was hard to believe that when I was hospitalized at 23 weeks. Looking back on it, I know better now. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Prov 3:5
So this year, I am gratefully feeling so, so blessed! I look at each one of my 3 children, and savor each smile, kiss, and moment. You only have one! We spend our evenings doing nothing but hanging out with each one of them. I look forward to this time every time I'm driving home from work. No matter how busy and hectic life gets, take the time to be grateful for the things you love most.
