I am so thankful for my blessed life. I haven't done a post of more personal nature in awhile and thought I'd like to share a bit :) This picture, which you'll see again in a LO soon ;) was taken on my birthday last month. Truly no greater gift has been given to me 3x over than my kids.
A few things that we've been waiting on that were totally out of our control have finally come through and this is such a relief as it will enable me to tie up a few loose ends for Makaio. I can hardly wrap my mind around it being almost 2 years ago since I first met my baby and then just a couple months later that he came home. And I am still dealing with paperwork! LOL
I have set a goal for myself this month to exercise. It's been a mix of good and extremely hard. I am always in some level of pain from Fibromyalgia and having some soreness from working out on top of it all is a bit discouraging. I do feel better in some ways but it's an on going battle to be sure. It's been 7 years of dealing with chronic pain and for the most part I feel God has blessed me with acceptance of it and even in some ways I can honestly view it as a blessing.
I am thankful for Craigslist this week too! Ayana has still been sleeping in a toddler/crib bed and she just turned 5 and it's really been on my heart to get her a big girl bed. But they are expensive. And I wanted one with storage drawers which make them even more so. So after searching Craigslist for only 2 days I found her bed, with storage and the mattress! For only $100. That was a total blessing as it was what we could afford. James will go pick it up tomorrow :)
Well, that's a little snippet into my life and what I am so thankful for. God's faithfulness is abounds all around us...I hope you'll stop and see what He's doing in your life too. Hugs....
