I'm Thankful For... #1

April comments here often which brought me to her blog a few months ago. Her beautiful family of 4 are so fun to keep up with! And her youngest, the only little man of the family, has Down syndrome and is just a bit older (I think...) than Brianna so I enjoy seeing what he's up to!

The next week she's posting something she's thankful for each day and asked for others to join in. I think that sounds like a great idea...

I want to think outside the box of children, husband, health, shelter, and food. I'm thankful for each of those but there's so much more...

I'm thankful that God doesn't give me everything I ask for. And I'm thankful that often He gives me WAY MORE than I could have ever thought to request.

I could list out several examples, but a few include our home, our children, the finances involved with our adoption... Time and time again we've prayed for something and instead of what we *thought* was best for us, God provided us His *BEST* plan which was so much greater than we could envision.

  1. Wow, Meredith, this is the first time I've seen your blog. Your family seems wonderful and your posts are great to read. I agree with you on the thing you are thankful for, me too! I look forward to looking back through your blog to see when you were in Ukraine last year! Blessings!
