Thankful Thursday

I don’t normally do Thankful Thursdays but I feel there is a lot to be thankful for in my life! So why the heck not!

I’m thankful for the healthy little miracle growing inside of me and how perfect God’s timing truly is. I believe this child is a blessing and no mistake what-so-ever. I can’t wait to see how much more healing will come to this family because of this little one. God’s faithfulness will surely show through this bundle of joy!

I’m thankful that I was just told by my OB that there is a chance for me to have a VBAC! There are things that my husband and I are still going to need to think about and discuss, but I’m glad there is an option!

I’m so thankful for my little man that brings so much laughter to this Yacoe household. Each new day is filled with new and exciting words. Sometimes not so exciting words, but mommy is learning to control her mouth so little man won’t say those things anymore!

I’m thankful for a hubby that tells me that I am beautiful everyday even though I feel like a heffer! I find myself falling in-love all over again and am so thankful for his servant’s heart to me and towards our family. He has been my life line and such a source of strength for me these past few months as well as an encouragement to my soul!

I’m thankful for a mommy I can tell anything to and share my heart with. I spent hours talking to her last night and she encouraged me and built me up as she always has. I don’t know many mothers like her that are so non-judgmental and even handed, yet still able to challenge me on my issues. I believe that if a person can be honest with you even if it stings just a little it shows how much they really do love you because they want to see you as a better person from it. I’m thankful for a mother who is honest with me and can challenge me; knowing that she is helping me become a better person and a greater woman of God!

Though I have been struggling with being home, I am thankful that I can stay home and raise my children. I’m lucky and though I’m still getting my feet wet in this whole process, God is certainly sending people my way to help me sort through the hard times.

I’m thankful for friends; friends that know I need them when I need them and are there for me no matter what. They have been the ones calling me, checking in on me to make sure everything is ok. I really think you realize who your true friends are when you feel the most alone. People I would have never expected to be reaching out so much are. I’m so thankful for those friends!

I’m thankful for the grace and mercy God gives me each day to be a better person. How HE shows me to take the log out of my own eye before I point other’s out. How imperfect I am, but so thankful for the blood of Jesus that washes over me daily.

Hope your week has been full of blessings!! Thank you all for the congratulations on our new little one coming. We are certainly super excited. I am going to wait until my first ultrasound to give you the details because I’m really not sure how far along I am and stuff… but as soon as I know, I’ll be sure to fill you all in!
