Thankful Thursday...ONE MONTH OLD
today i am most thankful for ally claire, especially since thankful thursday falls on her 1 month "birthday". wow...1 month. it has been the longest month i think i've ever experienced!! those first 10 days were a sho'nuff doozie. but thankfully we made it through and more importantly, she made it through. the last 3 weeks have been another experience. having 3 kids is what i abslutely always wanted. it was always "my" plan. i am just thankful and greatful that is was also "His" plan. i can remember being younger and thinking i wanted 2 boys and 1 girl. who knew it would work out that way? i'm thankful that my boys had each other while we were having to go back and forth to the hospital to be with ally claire. and again, i will always be so thankful for my doctors and nurses (especially H who loves my baby girl so!) who took such excellent care of her (and me and Micah!) i am learning to be quite thankful for my new best friend, without which i might not get anything done on days like today when she just wants to be held. (but i secretly don't mind, especially today because a month ago, i wished i was holding her allll day.)
i am thankful for my other 2 little knotheads as well. they definitely keep me on my toes (and pulling out my hair). but i couldn't imagine not having them and i earnestly pray that i'll never know a time without them. (on that note, take a moment to say a special prayer for all the mamas and daddys who can't hold their babies today because they are sick, overseas, already gone home to their Father, or are just too big to hold anymore. aching arms are an especially hard thing to endure.)
and i'm thankful for all the other mommies in mayhem that are listed to the side of my blog. i am thankful to know that we have all found each other through this small world wide web and that they go through the same things i do!!
