Thankful

It has been only 4 days since we got the news of our baby. It seems like an eternity! But we are clinging to Jesus and all the things we have to be thankful for.

First and foremost, we are thankful for our relationship with Jesus. It amazes us that just when you think you can’t go another day, He gives us the grace to make it through. I can’t imagine how anyone could make it through such a time as this, without the hope that Jesus gives!

We are thankful for each other. Rob and I have faced many trials in our married life. And as hard as some of those were, we are thankful that God has used them to strengthen our relationship. I can’t imagine going through any of this with anyone else.

We are thankful for our 2 children at home, Cade and SaraGrace. We now look at them so differently, and realize all of the things we have taken for granted in being their parents. Cade is absolutely devastated and has tons of questions, but he kisses his baby all the time and tells him how much he loves him, and that he’ll always be his big brother. Boy what we can learn from our children.

We are thankful for our families. What a blessing to have everyone so near to us. They have been our rock.

We are thankful for friends, near and far. We have been overwhelmed by the love and support from friends, and God has blessed us with so many. Thank you to everyone who calls, writes, or comments, even when you don’t have the words. We don’t have the words either, but you have been such an encouragement to us!

We are thankful for our little boy, Mack Andrew. His life is touching people already, and it’s only just begun. We are thankful for what we are learning through him. He has changed our lives tremendously in his 12 weeks of life. We are thankful for everyday we are blessed with his presence. And most of all, we are thankful that God has chosen US to be his parents!

You have no idea how often you all have been in my thoughts and prayers this week. So thankful for God's faithfulness as He sees you through.
