Thankful Thursday (Times Three)...

I can't believe it's already Thursday the weeks are flying by! Thursday is when I list three things that I am most thankful for.

Here is my Thankful Thursday (Times Three):

1. All of my blogging friends...

I can't say enough about how wonderful all of you are for giving me encouragment, hope, guidance, and prayer. It has only been four short months since I have started blogging and I have met some of the most thoughtful people in this world. When I'm feeling down or when I'm excited about something coming up, I can always count on my blogging friends to leave me just the right comment. You all are the best!

2. My health...

We have two students at our school that are victims of Muscular Dystrophy. It is so amazing to watch how these two young ladies live their lives with the best attitude and spirit. I also marvel at how patient their parents are and how meticulously they care for these beautiful children. I was lucky to meet one of the students two years ago because her aide needed help taking her to the restroom. I was unsure as to how she would feel having a stranger help her with something so private, but that simple act has resulted in a great relationship between us. It really does my heart good to see her each day, give her a hug, and hear her tell me she misses me when she doesn't see me. It is also a constant reminder of how thankful I should be for my healthy body.

3. My God...

I know that I do not praise Him enough, but I was reminded yesterday at just how often He opens one door when I feel as if one has closed on me. I was very devastated last week when I found out that our upgraded insurance was not approved and we would not be able to have any of our fertility treatments covered. I reached out to Him because I really didn't know what else to do. The next thing I know, I find out that my doctor is having a seminar next weekend and giving away a FREE IVF. He never lets me down and I am so thankful for that.

Please share with me what three things you are thankful for this Thursday!!

I am thankful that you came into our lives and that we all experience your amazingly positive attitude. I am thankful that my loving son David is loved by someone as wonderful as you and last, I am thankful that I can wake up each day and be thankful all over again!

I'm looking forward to the Thursday when we can all say that we are thankful that God has answered all our prayers for you. Fingers and toes are crossed and prayers are with you every day!

Love you.

I am so thankful that:

1. You made that decision a little while ago to share your life with me. I feel so blessed to have a blogger friend like you. Just want you to know that I continue to keep you in my daily prayers that God will reveal His plan for you.

2. I have an admimistration team at my school that is so supportive. Tomorrow is Principal Appreciation Day & I hope each one of my bosses feels appreciated.

3. We live in a very small town of 1,400 people. In times of need everyone puts their differences aside & pitches in to do what needs to be done. That was very evident this past week when our 27 year old friend was killed in a early morning farming accident. Friends, neighbors, & even strangers made sure the farm materials were taken where needed - with the last load being delivered that night at midnight. What would we do without others?

Zoe & I still have our fingers crossed for the free IVF. What a blessing that would be!

Love you, girl!

I found your blog through a friend of a friend and although we've not started IVF, we are in the process of artificial insemination. I'd love to follow your blog for encouragement and information

Sure, you can add me to your blog roll. Funny b/c I checked out your other blogs...the Knight one in particular. It took me a minute of confusion as to who or what you were involved in that required you to become a knight....then I read a little closer. :)
I love your blog!
