Thank you to Iris at Grace Alone for hosting Thankful Thursday this week.
As I've been enjoying this precious "newborn" time the last two weeks I've been reflecting a lot on the importance of my family.
My husband has been so strong, patient, and kind through the difficult pregnancy and now through the newborn baby days.
I'm so fortunate to have parents who love the Lord and have been married for 38 years. I am so thankful that I grew up in a stable and loving home and that I still have a great relationship with my parents.
I also have wonderful grandparents. One grandfather has gone to be with the Lord. My other grandfather is recovering from a major cancer surgery. I hope to be able to bring the baby to Iowa to visit him and my grandmother soon.
The other grandmother was in town last week and got to meet her new great -grandson:
I wrote about Grandma Theora HERE - she truly is a Proverbs 31 woman.
I have been blessed with in-laws who love the Lord. They took very good care of me while I was on bed rest!
Last week the Teen came over and we had a wonderful visit - it was so nice to have lunch with both of my boys!
Hmmm...it seems he might be taller than me now.
We also had a great dinner with my aunt and uncle and three of my cousins last week.
I am truly blessed to have such a great family.
