Thankful Thursday

 This week I have really tried hard to find things each day to be thankful for.  I love how when I seek out things God places them right in front of me.
 The big thing this week is for my sweet Daddy.  Back in June when he started chemo we prayed specifically that he would be able to get 12 rounds of chemo.  Well yesterday is what I am calling "Miracle Day" because he got round 12.  Amazing!!!  Very few people can make it this far on this chemo and he has.  Not only has he made it this far but he is doing really well!  For this I am so thankful!!!
 I am also thankful for my sweet hubby and the way he works for our family.  He goes to work each day and does an amazing job (at a very stressful job that he excels at).  He then comes home and works hard around the house.  He goes right to my "to do" list and looks for things he can mark off to help me.  I am so very thankful for him and the way he leads and guides our family.

It is sweet Kate's birthday week which of course makes me think of what a special little gal she is.  I am so thankful with how far she has come over the past 4 years.  She was born so sick and to be a healthy thriving little thing is such a blessing.  I know I say it a lot but God knew exactly what He was doing when He placed Kate in our family.  He knew we needed a fun loving, think outside the box member.  There are days when she and I battle it out but at the end of the day my love for her is overwhelming!!  Thank you Jesus for our sweet Kate!!

I guess that's all for today.  I'm enjoying sitting down each week and really thinking about what God has blessed me with.
