Thankful Thursday (Times Three)...


Thursdays are when I post about the three things that I am most thankful for that week. As we start the beginning of a new year, I have many things to be thankful for...limiting my list to only three for this post was a FEAT. But here you go...

1. The growth of my relationship with God...

The forever journey of TTC during 2008 was definitely a blessing...WHAT??? Yes, I am so thankful for the trials of TTC because they brought me closer to God. I never thought I would be able to say (or write) those words, but it really is the truth.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will lsten to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."Jeremiah 29:11-13

2. Patience...

I have FINALLY learned how to be patient...well almost :) Going through our infertility journey with my husband these past few years has shown me how to wait. Not that I do not want to be a mother any less, but I know that it will happen, but only in His time.

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:4.

3. Blogging...

Starting this blog has been such a great experience for me. Not only have I met some amazing women out there, but I have created bonds with women that I never thought would be possible. Women who feel the same way I do, share the same experiences, and have such a wealth of knowledge about God, infertility, and staying positive. You ALL are a blessing!

What three things are you most thankful for as we begin 2009...the year of new beginnings!!

On the blog thing...meeting amazing women...I so agree! I have thought several times that if I hadn't gone through this, I would have never met so many awesome people, including you!

Happy New Year!

I am very thankful for blogs, and the great women I have been able to "get to know" through them. None of my friends can really relate to our infertility, so it has been so comforting to be able to have this network of people that can. Thanks for always being so encouraging!
