Thankful for Blessings

I am sorry, I have been a bad blogger. I really haven't had anything I felt was worth sharing, I suppose. Things have been a little less exciting around here the last week or so. Since I can't think of anything to write about, I thought I should write a little of what I am thankful for. I am thankful for so much in my life. Wow, God has blessed us with so much. I am so thankful for Jesus and the promises from God. Because God gave his son for all of us, we get to spend eternity in heaven. That is absolutely amazing. I am so thankful that God has created a perfect place for us to spend eternity. A place where we will be reunited with our sweet babies who are already there and our loved ones. I am so thankful that He is taking care of my babies until I get there and I am thankful that time is not the same in heaven as it is here (at least that is what I believe) and our babies are not waiting around for us. I am so thankful for my wonderful husband. God brought us together many years ago and we have been on an amazing journey together ever since. We have had lots of ups and downs but we always get through it all together. Together, we have grown so much in our walk with our Father. We have really grown so much in the last three years or so, but especially in the last year. I am so thankful that God has given me a man who is a hard worker, an amazing daddy, a loving, respectful husband, and a devout Christian. He is not as outspoken as I am about things, but he definitely surprises me all of the time with what is going on in his head. I am so thankful for a God who knows exactly what I need in a husband. I am so thankful for Caleb. I love that boy so much. I appreciate every day with him that God has given me. We are not guaranteed a single minute with our loved ones so I am so thankful that I have had almost 5 years with him so far and I pray that God will bless me with so many more. I am thankful for Caleb's stubborn personality. He is very strong-willed and can be extremely difficult and I love that about him. I don't always enjoy the struggle that comes with that, but I love him for who he is and everything about his personality. He amazes me every day with his intelligence. I am so thankful for my sweet boy who is perfect to me in every way. I am so thankful for the seven weeks we had with Levi. I have read lots of stories now that I am connected with so many mothers who have lost their little ones and so many who have had babies with CDH and some did not even have a full day with their "cherubs". I am incredibly thankful for the time we had with him despite the fact that it does not feel like anywhere near enough. That sweet boy has forever changed our lives and I am thankful for that. God is still working on us and many others through Levi and I think that is amazing. I am getting off track a little so I will try to pull it back together and just list a couple more things. I am thankful for our family, our church, our Sunday school class, our friends, our neighbors, our prayer group, our house, our cars, Michael's job, all of our needs being met by God, our military and our freedom. I have tons more that I am thankful for but I think the biggest thing is simply love. God's amazing love that I could never comprehend and the love of family and friends.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful post, Becca. Tears in my eyes - again - as I read about your journey through Levi's teachings.
