Thankful Thursday and a Link Up

This Thursday, I'm thankful for:

The new little life growing inside my womb.

My two beautiful daughters who bring joy to my life every day.

 My handsome, amazing husband who before leaving for work today kissed me on the lips and promised to come home with a special surprise for me just because.

My amazing mom and dad who give up so much to help me out with my crazy little life!

My beautiful sister and my handsome brother who will always be my best friends in this entire universe.

I have so much to be thankful for. It's amazing how an attitude of thankfulness can change the way we view absolutely everything. Little inconveniences don't matter much when your perspective is lined up with a spirit of thanksgiving. There are so many blessings in our lives that we need only to open our eyes and acknowledge.

With that, I'd like to leave you with a post by my beautiful sister in law, Rachel. She's due to have her second baby in November, and I love what we wrote on her blog about planning (or not planning) when to have kids. It's such a great reminder to let God be God and to hold our life to Him with open hands. It's beautifully written... take a look! You will be blessed!!
