Thankful Thursday

Colossians 2:6,7

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

While I can't imagine the devastation in Haiti, I'm so thankful that survivors are still being recovered.

Now that I've had time to adjust to the change in plans, I am so thankful for this precious little babe growing in me. How blessed I am that after all this time God would see fit to give me another child.

My wonderful husband has been so kind to me lately. While I'm tired/grouchy/sick/overly-emotional he is patient and kind.

What are you thankful for this week? Check out these great blogs for more thankfulness.

Random Thoughts

Since I'm too tired to put my thoughts into some sort of meaningful order, here are my random thoughts today.

-Haiti. I've given. I've prayed. I've cried while watching the news. My heart breaks for the people of Haiti.

-Nothing kicks the morning sickness into overdrive like sitting in a smelly ski chalet surrounded by sweaty teens and old ski boots.

-Seeing as the lack of morning sickness over the weekend had me so concerned, I guess I shouldn't complain.

-Work. Teenage taxi. Meals to cook. Dogs to walk. And I'm too tired to do any of it. But how blessed I am that God would give me another baby.

-I wish it was Sunday so I could go to church again. I love my church!

A Not Me! Monday Surprise Announcement

OK, first the *secret* surprise:

And boy, was Mr K suprised. As was I. Thrilled, overjoyed, shocked, thankful, anxious, tired, nauseated and very surprised.

This is also the first Not Me! of the week. I would never blog about something we decided to keep a secret until after the first trimester. Really. Then it would hardly be a secret. So shhhh... don't tell!

I did not find over the past week that it was impossible to blog without sharing the news.

Nor have I been so distracted by thoughts of tiny baby socks, precious moments nursing in the middle of the night, first baths, first steps, and the craziness of having kids 15 years apart that I would set frosting on the stove to warm, decide to make some tea, and turn on the wrong burner.

Oh, and I wasn't using store-bought frosting because I was too lazy to make the cream cheese frosting for this rainbow cake:

Nope... Not Me!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
