thanks for praying

Aaron and I talked about T's adoption on Wednesday at our church. It was the Thanksgiving service and it went well. I made it through without crying, just a little choke up. And even though I got down from the stage I thought of a 100 things I should've said. I have to keep telling myself that God used my words even though I can hardly remember what I said. So thanks for praying for me, I felt your prayers for sure!

Thanksgiving - So there were tons of things that happened in the past 5 days of turkey day festivities which at the time I thought, oh that would be a good blog post, but this is the only one I can remember.

On our way home from the church service, Lydia starts telling me out of nowhere what she's thankful for. I'm feeling all proud for taking her to the service and thinking wow she really does listen when we talk about what the meaning of Thanksgiving is. So here's what she says,

"I"m thankful for aunties and uncles, for mom and dad, Jonah and T, Grandma Linda, and Grandma Linda(she really has 2 grandma Lindas) Papa Steve, and Grandpa Jason, Bjorn, and Leighton, and God and Jesus and Santa . . ."

So there you have it, what can I say.

Hope you all had a Happy Thankful Thanksgiving.

So glad it went well! You've always had a gift of words, I'm sure it was well received. Even Lydia got it--how priceless is that?

We need to talk soon, Love you my friend!
