Thankfulness

I take so many things for granted...my home, my family, my health & the health of my family, my stuff...everything. I occasionally read BabyCenter's birth club boards. Tonight I was reading and saw a post by a Mom whose daughter is 2 weeks younger than LittleZabba. Her daughter is in the hospital with lesions on her brain, hooked up to many machines, unconscious and having seizures. I cannot even imagine what she must be going through watching her little one go through all of this. It breaks my heart to think of it. I really have so much to be thankful for. I take for granted that my children are healthy, that my husband has a job, that I can stay home with my kids, that I live in a free country...all these things have become normal & expected for me. At any moment any of these "normal" things could just be gone. Then what would I do? This was a good reminder that I need to once again give all parts of my life to God and trust Him with it.

What a great post. It is so true. I take soooo much for granted. It's so good to remind ourselves of the countless things we have to be thankful for.

Very true for me too!
It's been a blessing visiting your blog every now and then. (plus I love to check in to see what cute things BigZabba is saying lately)
