Thankful Reflection

I can't believe that one year ago today we brought our sweet boy home from the hospital! I remember the chaos of that day...trying to get things ready at home, both girls had open house at school, and crazy me took the time to write this post.

The next day, I shared some pictures of his homecoming in this blog post.

Words truly cannot express the thankfulness I have in my heart today.

For Matthew.

For Emma Grace.

For Jessica.

For Grady in heaven.

For Gib.

And for my heavenly father, without whom I would have none of these blessings in my life.

Thank you Lord for my beautiful children, both in heaven and here on earth. Thank you for my wonderful husband who loves me when I'm hard to love. Thank you for our extended family and the friends you've brought into my life. Thank you for your love, your Son and the gift of His life. Thank you for the promise and hope of heaven.

Pictures like these warm my heart beyond words.

Have a great weekend!
