What a busy, rich and full week it's been! There is a lot of anticipation of our sixth grandchild's, (another grandson!), imminent birth, and a "false alarm" this week when the doctor thought perhaps he might need to come early. Our two grandsons both celebrated birthdays. Yesterday we had a gathering of the whole family to celebrate Mother's Day and the May birthdays in our family. As always, I've got so much to be thankful for!
Since 2009 I've been counting my blessings thanks to the prompting of Ann Voskamp.
I continue to count my thanks
piling up gratitude day by day
in my journal.
