Thankful Thursday

Welcome to another Thankful Thursday my friends. I am thankful for many things this week, and would like to share them with you. We have a beautiful addition to our family, she is Sara Ann, our great niece born one week ago today. Praising God for her. Lovebug's dad went into the hospital last Friday due to a kidney infection, and colon infection, he got to go home yesterday, he is feeling much better. We are very thankful to have him home. Yesterday, June 23, it had been six months since lovebug went into the hospital, and our adventure began. We cannot believe it has been half a year already. Woo Hoo, the love and miracles we have witnessed through our precious Father God. I am thankful for a box I received in my mailbox yesterday, from a dear blogging friend, filled with gifts for me and lovebug, that had been made by their own hands. I call it our treasure box, and believe me we will forever treasure the gifts, but more importantly, we will treasure the gift of our friendship. I am thankful for all the clothes my dear sister has been sending me recently, due to my weight loss. Thanks sis, your baby sister loves you. I am thankful for the opportunity to see my dear blogging sis Marsha, from Marsha's Musings today, we are having lunch together. Last, but not least, I am thankful for not always knowing why, because more importantly, I know Who. I love You Father God.

There's nothing like a new baby born in the family to bring smiles to faces. I'm also glad your Lovebug is doing so much better.

Please give Marsha a big hug from me. She is such a wonderful woman of God. I love her peaceful blog.
