Thank You God

"Thank You God! You have blessed me with the greatest of gifts - my beautiful child." ~Mama Hen
When Little Chick was a baby I used to tell her the story about how much I wanted a baby. I told her how I asked God every day for Him to bring me a baby. He asked me to be patient. I kept praying and asking and in His time my prayer was answered. My daughter and I say this story all the time. She likes to tell it to me now. Whenever we finish the story I always look up to the sky (or ceiling) and I yell, "Thank You God! Thank You for my beautiful baby!" Now throughout the day I will look up and yell happily, "Thank you God!" Little Chick does the same saying, "Thank You God for my Mommy!" There is no greater gift than my beautiful daughter. Thank You dear Lord.

Thanksgiving Thursday

1.) Little Chick and my family

2.) My education. It was so important to my parents that I received a good education. They worked hard to provide me with one and I am so grateful.

3.) Love. To be loved so much by my beautiful daughter and family.

4.) For my Mom! She is always there to listen and be Mommy no matter how old I get.

5.) For a bit of warmth in the air and the hint of spring coming around.

  20. This post brought tears to my eyes; it is such a sweet story. We always tell Georgia (even though she's too young really to repeat it back) that she made us into a family, and that we prayed long and hard for her.
