Thanking God for...

{Gifts #200 - 209}

- Right thigh burning whilst in Warrior One

- Haven exuberantly cheering for Elijah during swim lessons
- Answered prayer - Lucy running up to me the morning of her surgery, Take Two
- Cheerful playing coinciding with a nursing time
- A tiny job to do from home
- That I need not trust in riches (Pr 11:28), for I serve a God Who is worthy of trust (& reliable!)

- Baby laughter - sparse & quiet - so I appreciate it more
- Friends to celebrate Haven's birthday with us
- The reminder (from Charlotte's Web) of how rare & precious good friends are
- "Tea party with me, Momma? Tea yummy!"; Haven's new toy; the joy of playing with her

Out of the Mouths of Babes

L: "So, what are you guys going to do with Grammie today?"
Elijah: "Throw her on the roof."
L: "What?"
Elijah: "Yay. And we need to throw Grampa up that big, big tree so he can watch for the bad cats."

Eric: "Haven, did you have a fun time at your birthday party?"
H: "NO!....I DID! I did! I DID!"

L: "Haven, did you have a fun time at your birthday party?"
H: "NO!"
L: "Well, what was one of your favorite things at your party?"
H: "PLAY!"
L: "Yeah, that was fun. What else did you like?"

Elijah: "Daddy, why don't you want the cats to have lots of kittens? Kittens are fun!"

Abigail Leanne

If you are not birth-storied out, read the incredible birth story of my new niece over here. The background of my story, God's goodness in providing me with a doctor who would have delivered a breech baby, will make you appreciate Sweet Abbie's delivery all the more.

My three sisters and I are working hard. Sister #3 is due June 12th. I anticipate another tale of God's goodness!
