I am very thankful to be alive. I am a stroke survivor since 2005 ad was alone in a hotel the night it happened. I truly believe it was a miracle that my husband called to check on me and realized something was wrong and made sure I got help.

Thanks for paying it forward, what a nice thing to do.

OH are toooooo generous...I adore K&Co and what fun goodies you have many miracles in my life....I think it would have to be my life as the post before...tho my children are each a true miracle....I was dxd with type one diabetes in 2008...down to 100 lbs I thought it was all stress due to a difficult divorce but alas I ended up in ICU and was so very ill....I have to take 5 insulin shots a day and adjust my eating habits....had God not sent me to the ER one evening when I thought I had pnemonia I would very likely not be here I am grateful...every day the Lord gives us is truly a miracle and I often take that for granted!

I am thankful for all of my children and grandchildren but my miracle is my 21yr old. He was born at 25 1/2 weeks, weighed 1lb 12oz and was 12 1/2in long. Many children this size are saved now a days but 21yrs ago it was a miracle. He had many set backs and was in the hospital 4 1/2months. He is totally blind and has slight retardation but he is healthy.

I too have many miracles to share but the one that stands out the most in my mind is my daughter. Today (12/9) is her birthday. She was almost born the air plane during my trek from Alaska to California. She arrived nine weeks too soon but in God's time she arrived on time. We saw first hand how the Lord used her to point us to Him. She is three years old today and you would never guess that she was a premie.

Awsome giveaway, Thank you! I am thankful for many things but one I take for granted, is my job. I am thankful, even though I hate it at times, that I have a full time job with good benefits. In todays world, alot of people cant say that. I need to remember this when I start complaining about how rough my week has been.

Long time no chat! Love that snowman and you know how I feel about K&Co ;).

I would love to say my children but after 3 snow days at home they arent feeling much like miracles but more like little monsters. For me, I see miracles in little things (or try to) God has a way of giving us what we need not what we want which is a miracle in itself. The big miracles to me are the birth of Christ, His death and reserection and Him coming to save is all.

I would have to say my miracle happened when my vision was restored in 24 hours after my detached retnia surgery, all the paperworked said it was going to take weeks and when my husband took off my bandage to put drops in and I said baby I can see you he said no way, yes it was cloudy but I did see him and I know God did this for Gary to see the power of prayer. We were both so scared when I was rushed in for surgery and my last words to him were I know you don't belive but pray Gary!!! And guess who started going to church with me after that?!
What I am thankfull for and sometimes take for granted is my husband I would be so lost with out him and don't tell him enough how much he means to me!
now ya got me crying!!!

I am very thankful that I was able to take care of my Mom for 3 years in my home before she passed. I feel it was a miracle because I was untrained and I was able to take care of her trech and stroke needs. Love really conquers a multitude. (Of course you know I am teary eyed just thinking about this - but I am still very thankful that she was happy and safe the last few years of her life).
