Ahhh, I have been slacking in the blogging department. 

Life has been full (and wonderful).  Today was a beautiful day to remember all the blessings in my life.  Here is a short list:

1) Health. 
So many loved ones have had a rough year with their health and it has made me be grateful for each day.  Praying especially for our friend, Tom W.....that 2012 brings miraculous healing to his body and that God would be glorified throughout the W family's journey.

2) My husband and boys.
Never could I ask for a husband more well suited for me.  He is patient, kind, gentle and a rock in deep, rushing waters.  The boys bring excitement and joy to this little home.  And I am beginning to see how God uses my children to shape and transform me.

3) My Bible.
The best time of the day is when I climb into bed, switch on my lamp and open my familiar Bible.  God's word is powerful, Truthful and rich. 

Yep, it's a short list for now.
I am turkeyed out and ready to climb into bed and read. 
My mom and I joined WW a couple weeks ago and are really enjoying the program.  She lost 5.8 pounds her first week!  I lost about 3, but am now within the range for my height.  It's been a great discipline in portion control and has been helping add more fruits & veggies into our diet.

Tomorrow my sister & brother-in-law will be flying to China to bring their new daughter home.  This is exciting stuff and we are so excited to meet ChunLe for the first time.

Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!


  1. You are very blessed. :) Thanks for sharing.

  2. I don't think that you ever read these anymore because you never seem to respond with answering questions I post. So...I'm thankful for this:
