I am so incredibly thankful for so many things, but here are just a few:
Jesus: I am forever grateful for the love of Jesus and my relationship with Him, which gives me the ability to have healthy loving relationships with others.
Family: I am so grateful for our little family here in our home as well as our extended family and the love and support they provide us. This child of ours is the biggest blessing; he makes life easy, even when it’s not. He is such a trooper. He takes everything in stride. And my husband, oh my husband, this man goes above and beyond to love and take care of us. I am thankful for him each day.
Home: This house, y’all. It’s more than I could have imagined. And it’s so much more than a house. It’s our home before I have even finished it or dreamt it all. It’s our home before we have a sofa that matches and our dining room table finished and a guest room that’s more than just glorified storage space. It was not the easiest process getting here, but it certainly was worth it.
Modern Medicine: It’s a new one for us, but I’m so glad it’s here. I’m thankful for our endo team who takes incredible care of our son. I’m grateful for the medications that are available and allow his childhood to look like anyone else’s. I’m appreciative of those who take the time to create hospitals specifically for children and their needs.
Adoption: I know we’re not there yet, but I am grateful for the call in our hearts. It is such an incredible experience to go through this with my husband and then share age-appropriate prayers and thoughts with our son. He is more excited than any of us at this point, I think. I am honored that God chose us.
