to be thankful!

I have been having hard days with the kiddos. It seems like each day is just hard and that they are getting harder. Three 2 year olds that are in the major training season of life can get discouraging. But the Thanksgiving season has been good for me to realize how truly blessed I am, even on the hardest days! I am thankful that the Lord (and my hubby!!) have been faithful to remind me to remember the good things and to have my true joy in the Lord not my circumstances!! I'm a work in progress.

I am thankful for these little people that fill our house! It's a miracle that they are here and that they are completely healthy and doing wonderfully! It still amazes me to look back on our journey and the struggles with infertility, the high risk pregnancy and preemie babies. All that God has taken us through, all the scary risks and struggles. Here on the other side to see His hand working. It's easy to forget sometimes when I am in the thick of diapers, fights, training/discipline, food and all the other things that fill the day. But like I said God is faithful to remind me. So thankful for the joy and love these kids bring to our home!!

I am thankful for Jason!! What a man he is!! Such a servant, always looking out for me. Always putting me first. Always loving on me. Always helping with the kids and the house. He is such a good Daddy. He was born to be a parent. His training ideas with the kids amaze me and work so well. You don't see that often in a Dad and I LOVE it! He is such a hard worker. Works 10-12 hour days in the AWFUL weather. They don't get snow days, or when it's so hot. He's out there working hard for his family! Then he comes home and doesn't stop until bed. Love him!!

I am so thankful for the support system that I have with the kids. And it's more than that, these people that are so faithful LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my kids. It blesses my heart! I have a group of wonderful people that come out weekly to help me or give me a chance to get out if needed. That give me a place to stay or come stay with me. Thank you!! You have all been amazing!!
