Some days are good, and I get up and do things like make the bed and muffins and make some plans for the day. And then, out of no where, there is a bad day. Or a bad moment. Sometimes I can tell it's coming, and other times it feels like it's coming from nowhere and hitting so hard. I miss Ella. I know it's still early and we haven't even been without her for a month, but I just never knew it would be this hard.
I need to start a thankful journal. I need to keep looking for blessings all around me. I need to keep carrying my album of verses with me that have been so encouraging in the last few months. I need to get up and get in the Word first thing. Even if I don't want to get up. I know I need that, so if you would, please pray that for me- for energy to get up, take a walk and be with God.
Anyway, on this great Saturday, I am making it my "Thankful Thursday post".. Today I am thankful for:
-time with Grandpa. We have been with Shane's dad this weekend and my kids have been so happy!
- Garage saling. My husband and FIL humored me and drove all over town this morning. Got Graham some good fall and winter clothes, then I hit up Children's place. Ah, shopping really is retail therapy (smile)
- and this little man who looks like his daddy reminds me to be thankful for the man that I married. We are walking a hard, hard road, but we are committed to walk it together. Thank you God for Shane.
