Thankful Day 26

I'm thankful that my pound cake came out perfectly!

Thankful Day 25

Today, I got to watch my brave cousin Bonnie legally become Mom to precious Anius. Bonnie was Anius' nurse & he stole her heart. So, she opened her home & world to him. She has tirelessly mothered this little treasure. And today Anius now has her last name. I am thankful for love, because it is boundless. It's not always easy, but the rewards are infinite. I am thankful for family, because they are not always blood related, but heart born. And I am thankful that I got to witness such an act of selfless love. And in the words of Anius just after the adoption was official "I'm feelin' happy." ‪

Thankful Day 24

I'm thankful for change. The good Lord is always changing my heart. And because of that heart change, it impacts my reactions to things. This week I was faced with something that maybe a year ago, I would have had a meltdown over. But this time I took a deep breath & just let it be. Life is way too precious to always be in a tizzy about something. No matter how long I have been a born again Christian, He never stops working on me. 'Cuz goodness knows I sure can be a heap of a mess at times. I never want to feel like I'm "all done." I'm a work in progress. Hallelujah to that!

Thankful Day 19

I'm thankful for sweet childhood memories that still live on in my heart. No fairytale can ever compare to Cinderella in my mind. When I was little it's the one story that Mom had to read to me every single night from a very worn & loved book. And I am thrilled to see the new Cinderella movie that comes out in March! (Downton Abbey fans will recognize a couple of faces.) ‪#‎thankful‬ ‪#‎30daysofgrateful‬
