POST #1000

First of all - I was SO happy today because Harper had a great day in the nursery!! You have no idea how hard I have prayed today and it was so nice to go check on her twice and neither time was she crying or screaming. I'm so thankful for her sweet nursery workers who love on her! My parents were here today and got to go to church with us and see her in the nursery! And we went to lunch and she was so happy and did so good. OH it was just a great day!

My dad got home from India last night and we were so glad to have him home safe and sound. Tomorrow is his birthday and today is Grandparents day so we were glad to spend time with them! Harper is so blessed to have four wonderful grandparents in her life!
We were playing with her in her room and she started pulling up on me!!! She is just changing and growing so quickly these days!

I told ya'll yesterday about my "faith" dress and then I found out something SO amazing about it and I just have to share because I want to show you how God is at work even when you don't know it and feel like your prayers are not being answered.
But first I feel like I should share that YES - I love having a girl but I used to DREAM of having three boys. I would have been over the moon if we had had a boy. I don't want anyone to think I would have been unhappy with a boy. I dreamed of a boy playing football and I still secretly wish for a boy if we have another child. There is nothing sweeter than a little boy. It's just that I just always had this feeling I would have a daughter. I can't explain it but I just knew.
Anyway..........I think this is unbelievable. When I shared the story of the dress yesterday - the lady who I bought it from off of etsy left me a comment and then she e-mailed me to share something with me and it just gave me chills and made me cry. She has been reading my blog since Harper was born but had no idea she had one time made a dress for her until she saw it yesterday. And she remembered it because when she made it - she felt like God asked her to pray over the dress and to pray for the little girl who would be wearing it. She had no idea that at the the time there WAS no little girl yet or that the little girl would really need prayers at one point. See how God goes ahead and works in such amazing ways???

HE LOVES US - OH HOW HE LOVES US!

And finally - look who is starting to crawl!!!! When did she get so big???

So this is my 1000th post!!! WOW - that is a whole lot of rambling from me. So in honor of my 1000th post - I was wondering if you read my blog - I would love to hear from ALL of you - even the lurkers who have never commented - and I would love to hear one thing you are thankful for today! It would be great to start off this week with a LONG list of uplifting praises and I would love to hear from EVERYONE who is reading!!! Ya'll hear from me every day - now I'd like to hear from you!!!!

Checking in from Georgia and today I am so thankful for my family. After years of infertility, I was blessed with triplets and look at them everyday in amazement. Have a great week!

I'm thankful for your blog and the prayer blog! They have been such a blessing, and I love having other people to pray for who are going through infertility. I'm thankful that I am finally pregnant, and I'm so thankful for my husband. And finally, I'm so thankful for the body of Christ, and the way God uses it so creatively to lift up and help other believers!

Thank you Kelly!

I am thankful for my daughter....a true miracle. She was born 15 weeks early weighing 1lb 15oz. She got VERY sick after 3 weeks and was placed on life support. We were told twice she was not going to make it! She and God had different plans!! Miracles happen....I have proof!

Hey Kelly, I read your blog all the time. My daughter is about the same age as Harper and I just love watching her grow.Today I was thanking God for giving us a healthy baby girl because after reading other blogs today I realize how many other families are dealing with so much pain. Thank you for your inspiring blog.

elainaann said...

I've been reading your blog since right before Harper was born. I've commented a few times, but to be honest, I never comment because I feel like you already have so many to read.

I am thankful for so much. It has been the best weekend, and that always makes it super easy. I am thankful to serve a God of second chances, a God whom I can call on whenever and where ever. I am also thankful for my ever so sweet and patient husband. I'm a lucky girl!!

Paige said...

Kelly,

I read everyday, but don't always comment. Thank you for your faith and your transparency in how God has worked in you. I am a single young woman still seeking God's will for my life, and reading about how he blessed you in his timing is a constant reassurance of his love for me and his plan for my life!

Thank you!

Blessings,
Paige

I am thankful for your prayer blog! I was one of the first of so many that was on the Waiting for a Baby list. I told you that we're pregnant with twins and now we're expecting their arrival any time this week or next. Prayer is so powerful. We're excited to have 2 little boys that are going to rock our world!

I hope y'all had a great weekend!

I am thankful for my three healthy daughters. And knowing that when I pray God does hear me. I may not understand His ways or timing, but I know He is in control and loves me. That's an awesome feeling ;)

Bronda said...

I don't remember how I came across your blog when Harper was born but I did. I am thankful today for the GOD we have and how HE has blessed my life with the love of an awsome family. He brought us through my son's bone cancer, he brought us though my moms breast cancer, and all of the other things in life when I needed someone beside me. I pray every time I read someone new on your blog. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Kelly!

I'm so thankful for my three miracle boys - after being told our chances of having biological children were "very slim", we adopted a little boy from Russia with heart disease....a few months after we brought him home we tried one more IVF and were blessed with our little Zachary (picked that name because it means "God remembers" which seems to fit)....when Zachary was 6 months old (and I was still nursing him!) I miraculously got pregnant with Easton Nathaniel (picked Nathaniel b/c it means gift from God) who came very close to dying when he was 4 days old. Needless to say, I have a lot to be thankful for! Thanks for reminding me! :)

Diane said...

I am thankful my husband is beside me color coding my handbell notes. I love playing in our choir, but I can't read music. So he is marking the notes for me with a specific color so I know what to play. YAY!

Hillary and Russell Jordan said...

I'm thankful for a wonderful husband who knows my love language... acts of service! He helped cleaned the whole house and all of the laundry so we could spend time together this evening.

The dress story gave me chills by the way!

Sarah said...

Thankful today for my husband, three kiddos, and baby #4 on the way!

Amanda said...

Hey Kelly! Pretty sure it has been over a year that I have been reading your blog and never commented! Just an Edmond, OK girl reading about someone I don't know in Arkansas, and loving every post! I have a 6 month old daughter and love reading about your daughter! Addie is just a few steps behind!

Michelle said...

Kelly, I read every post here in Houston. I was so proud of you for telling the world about okra! LOL Who knew? :) I am so thankful today for my grandparents! Absolute blessings in my life! They are amazing great grandparents as well and we were blessed today to spend it with them at church and lunch afterwards! I bought a pink blanket for a friend but kept it in hopes for my own girl... it is now my daughters favorite blanket and it is a good reminder to me of all the gifts God has given me! Harper is a doll and I love keeping up with you both!

Andrea said...

I'm a lurker, coming out of lurkdom! :) I recently became a mother of a little girl, Lyla and I am especially thankful for her today as we found out yesterday that a close friend, a 16-year-old boy, was killed in an automobile accident. So today I'm thankful for Lyla, my husband, my family, and friends.

That is such an amazing story, Kelly! I am thankful for your blog, because I met Veronica through it and she has quickly become my very best friend, even though I live in TX and she lives in CA and we've never even met (yet!).

I am thankful for my amazing church family! Just spent a full day with them, and even though I'm exhausted, I loved every minute of it. I can only hope that's what heaven will be like!

I love reading your blog--it's so positive and real. I think I started reading while you were still pregnant with Harper, and then her story just showed me what an amazing woman of faith you are. Thank you for sharing your life with us :)

Megan said...

I've been reading your blog since my friend Annalee posted about Harper back when she was born. I've been hooked ever since, and I love your story!

Like so many others, I'm beyond thankful for my kids. Sure, they try my patience at times (I have a 6 year old boy, and 4 year old boy, a 1 year old girl), but they also fill my life with such joy.

Beth said...

So thankful for my sweet hubby and precious little girl!!!

jb said...

Hi Kelly!

I've read your blog since before Harper was born but have never commented. I have to share that another blog reader and I had a play by play through texting going the night you had Harper. We just loved your blog and wanted to make sure we didn't miss anything when you were in labor! :)

I am so thankful that you are not afraid to blog about your faith. It is so refreshing! Keep it up!

Blessings from TN-

I've only commented a handful of times, but I'm a faithful reader!

Today I'm thankful for my three wild little ones and their daddy who coaxed teary-eyed laughter from them at dinner.

Kelly: I adore your blog. This morning in church when the children were dismissed to Church school I thought of you and Harper and prayed that she was not crying :)

I am so thankful that I am finally starting to understand how much Our Lord loves me. I am thankful that I can trust him more and more everyday. Your blog has certainly helped with that , so I am also thankful for finding you. Congrats on the 1000th post, can't wait for the next 1000!!!!

Cathryn said...

I started reading your blog the day Harper was born! I came here from another blog when you were still in labor, and kept checking in on your progress. I cried when I read how sick Harper was, and my husband and I prayed for her. I have been reading your blog ever since and love seeing how Harper is growing. She is beautiful! I am thankful for my two beautiful healthy children and for a husband who will pray with and for me and who loves me when I am oh so unloveable!

amy said...

1000 posts?! Oh my goodness! I'm thankful for my healthy twin girls who just turned ONE! They were born at 30 weeks and stayed in the NICU for a couple months, but God healed them- they are happy healthy beautiful baby girls. For that I am blessed and beyond thankful!

I'm thankful for wonderful family and friends that God loves me through. I'm thankful for a job I enjoy where I can hopefully make a difference in the lives of kids by sharing God's love. I'm thankful for salvation, God's faithfulness, unconditional love, and the way He's in control of the plans for my life.

Katie said...

Hello Kelly, I havent left you a comment for ages as I always think you have to be so overwhelmed with how many comments you have to work through!!

I am thankful for the rain after the drought that Texas has been under and the fact that it was cool enough to get out my jeans and they weren't too tight on my thighs (which was my biggest fear!).

And of course thankful for my beautiful children who keep me smiling!
Katie :o)

Angie said...

I am thankful for an amazing husband and healthy daughter that is growing and changing everyday. I am thankful that we got to sit outside tonight and watch her play for an hour and enjoy her laugh-what a blessing.

I have enjoyed reading about Harper-have commented a few times and will continue to check on you!!!

LuLu said...

Just one thing??!! I am especially thankful for my husband today:) In the craziness of the first year of marriage, I have really started to appreciate everything about him!! Even those things that once drove me crazy:) I am also very thankful for your blog Kelly. Is it weird that on my way home from work, I think to myself, "What will Harper be doing tody?" It is like I know you so well! Thanks for all that you do:)

Terah722 said...

I'm thankful that my Grandma who passed away this morning is in Heaven. She spent her whole life serving the Lord as a missionary to Africa and then got cirrhosis of the liver due to a malaria medication. She is healed, whole, and singing at the feet of Jesus tonight. I'm also so thankful for my wonderful husband and sweet children.

Kelly said...

Congrats!
I am thankful for a loving family.

Kaycee said...

Hi Kelly!

I read your blog everyday as well, though I don't often (ever?) comment. I follow quite a few blogs off of your prayer blog as well, so really a lot of what I read is because of you. :)

I am so very thankful for my beautiful baby girl (almost 18 months now!) and my wonderful husband. I am blessed to have such a lovely family that make me laugh and love me as much as I love them. I am thankful for my extended family as well, I grew up with wonderful parents and brothers and with the addition of my husband's family there's a whole lot of family around now. I am also thankful that I love my job (I am a teacher) even though I work so hard at it, it's easier to do and easier to be away from my little one because I love it.

Sara said...

I love your blog! I check it everyday to see what is happening in Harper-Land!

I am thankful for my daughter, Payton. Her brother went to be with Jesus when he was just 5 days old, and we have missed him terribly the past two years. Payton is our little blessing and I can't believe she is already 7 weeks old! My how they grow!

Heather Allen said...

Thankful for this blog and a place to come and feel understood. I am going through the battle of infertility. Even though my heart aches to be a mother I am thankful for the life I live. I am lucky to have a house, a job, a loving husband and a God who forgives me daily.

Nicki and Mathis said...

Kelly, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog! I don't comment very much, but I thought in honor of your 1000th post, I just couldn't resist! I love reading about all the blessings in your life and how you use them to praise the Lord. He is SO faithful!!!

One of my biggest blessings is my marriage. I love my husband so much, and I am grateful the Lord has blessed me with such an incredibly best friend.

Sarah said...

I'm an Arkansas girl who is now living in New Jersey. After 2-1/2 years of infertility, I am so thankful for my almost 2-year old son, Jackson. He is such a joy! I am doubly thankful for the little life that is growing inside of me and due in only four weeks...the Lord is so good!

Thank you for sharing the story about the lady who made Harper's dress. That was very encouraging to read!

Amber Schmidt said...

What a cool story about the dress! I too, bought a "faith" dress for Kyleigh before she was born! I was only 8 weeks along and had no idea that she would even BE a girl but I just knew. Holding onto that dress helped me through so many scary nights in the pregnancy!

Thanks for sharing that story! Made me smile....

Faith said...

I am thankful to be alive. I am also thankful that I can worship in a country where I am not persecuted for doing so :).
Have a great week!

Annie said...

Today and every day I am thankful for my wonderful husband, for all he does for me and for giving me a beautiful daughter.

The Dorns said...

I have never commented on your blog before. I live in Sac, CA and have a 4 month old that I am sooooooo thankful for since he is my miracle IVF boy. Harper and Landon would make a cute couple when they were older LOL She is just a doll.

Shannon said...

Hey Kelly,
I have read your blog since your pregnancy and I have never commented. But, I read your blog everyday because it is uplifting and positive. I prayed for Harper while she was in the hospital, bcs we lost our little girl Hayden Grace almost 3years ago to a terminal heart condition. We hope to adopt soon and I am thankful for such supportive and amazing family and friends.

Chelsea said...

I'm thankful for my fabulous friends and family! I'm also thankful for blogs that help me procrastinate when I need to be writing a paper :-)
Yay for 1000 posts!

Heather said...

I love your blog Kelly!!

I am thankful for God's unconditional love and His forgiveness.

Congrats on 1000 posts!

Angela said...

I'm reading from Chattanooga, TN.

Tonight I am thankful for my wonderful family. My husband was out of town last week, came home for the weekend, and has to go out of town again for four days. We have two sons, and I am pregnant with baby #3. He is such a huge help to me, so when he's gone (which isn't that much--he's just training for a new job), I really, really miss him!!!

I am also very thankful for such a wonderful church with a special needs ministry so that my younger son Benjamin, who has Down syndrome, can be in a special nursery room and have wonderful care. We even have a class for moms of special needs children, and the time we have together each week is just so blessed.

Kristy said...

I have been a lurker since Harper was born! I have a baby girl who is 14 months now so I was glued to your blog, praying and crying. I remember the first time you got to hold her--called my husband into the room and had him read your post! Congrats on 1000 posts and more importantly, congrats on your sweet baby girl.

L stewart said...

Hi Kelly!
I think I have left a coment a couple of times but I really enjoy reading your blog. I think it is because we have a lot in common. My dad is also a baptist minister, I have 3 little ones 5 and under(a boy and 2 girls who always wear BIG BOWS!) I love fashion (especially ruffles and Cheap FOREVER 21 accesories!) I love food , friends and taking pictures of all three of my babies.
You are a wonderful witness in the Blog world and I have no doubt that God uses you every day. Keep enjoying that precious baby of yours! They grow way to fast!!!

Your sister in Christ~ Lindsay

More than anything, I'm thankful for my salvation. Second to that, I'm thankful for the health and love of a fabulous family.

I am thankful for my little girl that we prayed for for 10 years. She's such a blessing in our life. I enjoy reading your blog because you and I both seem to be so similar in our awe of what God has blessed us with. Keep blogging. God bless.

monelle said...

Hi Kelly - I am reading from Baytown, TX and have been following your blog since before you were even pregnant. Now that's a long time! You are such an inspiration to me. I am thankful for my 93 year old grandmother who loves the Lord and has taught me about Jesus and is a role model of a Christian. She still goes to church every Sunday!

MaryBeth said...

Long time reader but have never left a comment. Congrats on 1000 posts! You are such an inspiration to moms and you are ministering to them as well. I am thankful for so many things, but today I am thankful for my sweet husband and two healthy sons. BTW...I too have always thought I would have 3 boys. I'm on my way, I guess!

Anna said...

That video of Harper crawling is adorable!!! Today I'm thankful for my wonderful family and all the moments that we get to spend together.

Audra said...

Hi Kelly! Audra from Mississippi here. I'm so thankful that God doesn't always follow our plan. ;) That he listens to our desires, but gives us what is best. I had my life planned out to a "T" years ago, and I think he laughed and tossed it into the trash! LOL My life is very different than what I expected, but it's PERFECT. I stay home with my little boy and have learned to be more frugal and He has drawn me so close to Him! What an unexpected blessing!!

HeyHey said...

I am thankful for my beautiful nieces! They mean the world to me and I thank God so much for them!

sclangs said...

I too am thankful for my husband. He was gone the last 2 weeks for work and I missed him terribly. Having 3 active kids, I totally need his help here at home. I am also thankful for his job that is great, but don't like it when he travels!

Lindsey said...

I was just telling my husband that I am about to have my 100th post! I couldn't imagine having a 1000! Congrats!

Anyway, I am thankful for my family...always!

Margaret said...

I'm just a blog lurker but I looove yours! I'm still in high school, and you give me so much hope about my future, and your faith inspires me so much. I am thankful for the love that God shows me in so many different ways.

Writing from Las Vegas...although I am an Alabama girl at heart. Go SEC. I love your blog. I started reading when Harper was in the hospital and have been addicted ever since. It's amazing to hear your Southern voice on the videos...it makes me think of home. I am newly pregnant and taking notes from you!!!

travisandstephanie said...

I am thankful for my wonderful husband, my adorable son who will be celebrating his first birthday this coming Sunday, for my family that loves me regardless of my quirks, and, most importantly, I am thankful for my Savior how has given me all these blessings.

I have never commented on your blog before. I have thought about it several times but someone else recommended whatever I was going to say (i.e. wear sleepsacks, put diapers on backwards, etc.) so I always shy-ed away. Congrats on reaching 1000 posts. I love reading your blog.

Kyle and Shalen said...

I am thankful for God's constant provision for us. My husband and I have stepped out in faith in a career change and me going back to school and trust me, it was not the logical thing for us, but He has provided all that we need and we trust that He will continue to do so.

Julia said...

Hi Kelly,

Love hearing ya'lls story and I love to hear the great stories of faith, like the one with the dress. I am serving as a chaplain in a hospital (on the labor and delivery floor!!)

SO I'm thankful this week for all those babies and moms that are coming this week to the hospital and all the love and joy I get to experience by praying for them. I know that there will be hard cases too, but in that hard times God is the only this that can be bigger than that pain and hurt!

Lots of love for you and your family!

Erica Shier said...

I am thankful for the little girl in my arms and the other 3 children sleeping upstairs. and for my husband who works so hard to take care of us all!

Twinkletoes said...

Happy 1,000 post blogiversary! I and from Pennsylvania and don't recall how I found your blog but love reading your down to earth stories as well as seeing the pictures! Thanks for sharing snippets of your life with us!

Juggling Thoughts said...

I am extremely thankful for my husband. It's not always easy for me to show my feelings to him, but I want him to know that no matter what, I love him with all of my heart. He came into my life 4 years ago, and has gone through life with me so far without judging and always showing his support. He was surely sent from a higher place.

I am also extremely grateful to God that he allowed my now husband to have met my father and had dinner with us at our last family dinner before he passed. I know my Dad would have approved of our marriage, and was there with us in spirit on my wedding day. I am extremely grateful for that. I get through my dad's passing with my family, my husband, and my faith.

Thank you for listening, Kelly :)

Laura said...

Kelly,

Love reading your blog. It is so uplifting and positive. Thank you for sharing a little bit of your life with us all.

I am thankful for my family first and foremost, our health, a job I love and that I am fortunate enough to work with my sister. I am also thankful for God's grace!

Have a great week!
Laura in Texas

Terra said...

I am a reader from Tulsa, OK. I have been following your blog since Harper was born. I used to say special prayers for her because my niece was on ECMO at St. Francis and when you wrote about it on your blog I knew what you were going through and I also have a little girl right about Harper's age so I love reading about all her milestones because I am right there with you. I am so thankful today for my 2 healthy children for God's never ending love! Have a blessed week!

Emily said...

Happy 100th post! I always read your blog and get so much encouragement to wait patiently for the man I'm meant to be with. Your blog is such a blessing! And of course I love all the pictures of sweet Harper. Thank you for being you, Kelly!

Hi! Congrats on your 1000th post :) Today, I'm thankful for God's grace... in spite of my imperfections, He still loves me and covers my flaws and voids completely. Amen!

Ps- Congrats to Harper on the crawling! That's a big milestone! Get ready to chase her everywhere. This is where the baby gets to babyproof! :)

Ashley said...

Kelly- We are past due on a play date!!!! =) I miss you!

Okay, I had chills when I read that about the lady who made her dress, I teared up too! GOD IS GOOD!!!!!

So exciting to see Harper pull up! I can't wait to give her big kisses!

Shannon Strong said...

I am one of those lurkers-have followed your blog for a long time now. I myself struggled for years before becoming pregnant with my son Brayden. I was told that my health would never withstand the pregnancy and that we should abort. I knew God had better plans, and I ended up having a very healthy pregnancy, and new baby boy. I am grateful to God everyday for that-I have been truly blessed. Harper is precious by the way, and I have prayed so many times for your beautiful family. I will leave comments more often-I promise :-) God Bless.

YaYaMama said...

I am thankful that my husband and I have two healthy boys.

Pastor Steve said...

I'm thankful that I received my very first birthday card from my grand daughter on grand parents day! By the way, have I told you that my grand baby is the most precious baby in all of the world?

meeksmiles33 said...

Hey Kelly!! There is so much I am thankful for. Today was a great day at church as we had so many visitors in our lifegroup (aka Sunday School) and I love my church!! I have a wonderful friend, Tonia, whom I am truly thankful for as well as my wonderful husband and children and their health. I am also loving your blog because you are such a sweet person and your such a prayer warrior which is truly inspiring. Thank you for rambling!! :)

AmberS said...

I am thankful for my amazing son. We just lost a baby while I was in my 14th week and it has made me appreciate and love on my son so much more.

Karissa said...

Kelly -

I've been reading your blog since Harper was born and just wanted to tell you that God has used you to bless me and my group of friends so much. We are all single girls in our twenties who want so badly to be married and have a family. Your words of encouragement and hope for those of us who are waiting mean so much!

Today I am so thankful for my amazing group of friends. I prayed so long and so hard for a group of single girls I could share my heart with and the Lord has blessed me beyond what I could possibly imagine.

Keep blogging and blessing all of us with your uplifting words!

Karissa

Brooklynn said...

JamieCain said...

First off, I love reading your blog everyday! It is so uplifting and you always seem to say the things that I need to hear :) Now for what I am thankful for...there is so much that God has blessed me with! I am thankful for my wonderful husband who is so perfect for me in every way! It is an honor to be his wife! I am also thankful for our sweet baby boy, Carson. He is only a few weeks younger than Harper. He was born 2 months early and had to spend 2 weeks in the NICU, so I too know the pain of having to go home without your baby. But he is almost 8 months old now and doing wonderfully! I am so thankful that God chose me to be his mommy! There is no greater blessing than a child!

God bless you and your precious family,
Jamie

Sarah said...

I've commented before - I'm down in the road in the River Valley! And today I am thankful my almost one year old girl is feeling better after being sick the last 3 days with an ear infection. So rough seeing your baby hurting and in pain! Glad she is healing!

Landen and family said...

Hi! I'm a lurker, I normally don't post comments, but here I am! I'm so very thankful for my 2 healthy and happy children. My brother just returned from Iraq and I am so thankful he made it home safe and sound.
Happy 1,000th!!!

missleeannskidz said...

It's Lee Ann from East Texas! Today I'm thankful for my loving and supportive family and friends. I'm also thankful that the Lord has given you a heart for us single girls and your blog that is such a testimony of how faithful the Lord is when we trust him.

Heather said...

Oh, Kelly girl...that story just makes my heart soar in praise of our God who loves us so much we cannot possibly even come close to imagining. That is just too cool about the dress. WOW!
I am thankful for Jesus...my sweet Connor-boo, a wonderful husband, and my precious "faith baby" girl...getting to stay home with my kids...terrific friends and family...and did I mention Jesus? Oh, how He loves us indeed!!! I shudder to think where I would be without Him!
Thanks for the 1000 posts. I have read all of them-when I "found" you I went back through the archives!- and each one is precious! Have a great week!

Sandy Morgan said...

Kelly, I am so thankful to be a mom and so thankful for my little boys birth parents who were so unselfish in their love for him. God is so good all the time!

Jo said...

I'm thankful that I became the mother of 3 great kids - one is my biological dtr and the other 2 are my hsbs from a previous - I had the priviledge of raising them as well.I always wanted 3 kids, so it was perfect! I had 5 years of infertility treatments, a miscarrage and during my pregnancy I had a complete placenta previa and almost lost my dtr a few times. She was born 6 weeks early and lived in NICU for 3 weeks- but now she is 18! Thankful doesn't even begin to express my feelings.

Shannon H said...

Delurking in honor of post 1000 to say I'm thankful for my son and my husband & family time on weekends. And I'm thankful for my camera that I can capture all those family moments with :)

Meredith said...

I am so thankful that the Lord has revealed himself to me lately! His timing is impeccable and I love living my life knowing that I have complete trust in Him!

Vera said...

I am SO thankful for my healthy family. After your Tweet yesterday, I read your prayer blog, and have spent pretty much every minute since then thanking God for my health, my husband's health, the health of my two girls, and the health of my precious (very, very prayed for!) baby in my tummy!!

Renia Flaishans said...

First and for most I am Thankful for what I have! It may not be much to others but to me it is EVERYTHING to me!! That includes my husband, my 2 daughters, my parents, my brother and my home! I am thankful that after my husband being laid off for over 5 months he went back to work last Thursday and on the same day I was offered a job that I had applied for over the summer. I now work with Special Ed. children and I LOVE IT!! I am also SO thankful today that 2 of our friends are doing well. On Thursday my daughters 11 year old friend (Jordan) fell at school and was unconcious and started having seizures. And then on Friday a friend of my ours was in a motorcycle accident. He is going in for surgery in the morning but all in all is doing well!! So to say the least I have LOTS of things be Thankful for today!!

I am blessed with a wonderful husband of almost 5 years, a 2 year old little boy and little boy #2 arriving in just 8 weeks! I also follow you on Twitter!! God Bless

Melis.sa said...

ooo, I am thankful for my husband and healthy little girl. I love reading your blog and I don't comment often either b/c there are usually so many comments already by the time i read it. But I love seeing how big Harper gets and how amazing your story is, every day.

LauraD said...

I am thankful for my son who loves to pray at the alter every Sunday. He used to just want to listen to my husband and I pray. But now he is beginning to say really meaningful things to God. It makes my heart smile :)

Baker Family said...

Hi Kelly! I have NEVER commented before, I know you are super overwelmed with comments all the time and have just chosen to sit back and pray. I am an OBU alumni and Tri Chi alumni as well. I have read your blog as long as I can remember and prayed for baby Harper as long as I can remember as well. I remember just weeping at the computer screen when I saw you hold up the sign that you were pregnant. Your blog is so uplifting and refreshing! I don't know how you keep up with it all!! I am so thankful for my adorable, healthy 5 month old (Reed) and my wonderful husband and family! Today I am especially thankful for an amazing church family at New Life Chuch (www.newlifechurch.tv).

Shanna said...

I'm thankful for my good health; my salvation; my boyfriend who's soon to be my fiance in less than 18 days; my wonderful family;and that my grandpa is improving (he's been in the Heart Hospital for 2 weeks now)!

Nicki said...

Hey there -I'm Nicki a lurker from New Zealand - not sure how I ended up at your blog but I have been reading it since Harper was born. My oldest is 14 tomorrow I also have a 12 year old and a 10 year old. I love all your monogrammed stuff!

The Jenkins Family said...

Greetings from Oregon! I am thankful for my 2 kids and hubby. Praise God! We had a wonderful 'family' day today.
Love watching Harper grow!

Tammy said...

I am from Louisiana and wanted to say that I am so thankful for my new baby boy who is now a week old. The doctor actually told us we were having a girl, but he was wrong!

Emily said...

I am thankful for so much and yet, I know I don't express my thanks to God nearly as much as I should. I am most thankful for my husband of almost 9 years, our 3 year old son, and for the baby that will be here in February. Thank you for your blog and for being such a great role model and example in Christ.

austin and carianne said...

This is my first-ever "Kelly's Korner" comment...but today, I am thankful for the little boy inside of me! He has been growing, growing, growing for 29 weeks and has changed my life in so many ways...already!! Unlike you, Kelly, I got pregnant on the first try. I feel like through that first "positive test" God was telling me that He was ready for me to be a mom, and my husband - a dad. I am very much looking forward to November 20 when he will come into our lives and continue to bless us, change us, and turn us into the parents we are supposed to be. God is so good. He has blessed me in so many ways...a loving husband, a wonderful family, an amazing pregnancy since day 1, this healthy little boy, etc... I could go on and on.
Blessings on your week.

I'm thankful for the precious baby my husband and I have on the way and for the strength I draw from everyone in the blogging community to get through the pregnancy. (I work in an NICU and am terrified of something going wrong with my baby.)

Hey Kelly!

I am a true lurker! I have been reading your blog for a few months now and never commented. Because I enjoy reading your blog so much I recently started my own!

Today I am thankful for my wonderful husband of over a year and our four furry 4-legged children.

I love reading your blog and hope to one day be able to inspire people the way your blog does. It is so refreshing to read. Thank you for sharing your life!

I have great friends, great parents and siblings, and a job that I love. Thank you for your blog and for sharing your life with us!

I've been "addicted" to your blog since Harper was born. A friend told me about it, and I've been here daily ever since! You inspire me to be stronger in my faith! Today I'm so thankful for my beautiful 3-year-old girl who teaches me more in a day than anyone else!

Jessica Miller Kelley said...

I am thankful for my sweet baby girl.

The Eyre Family said...

I am thankful for so much in this wonderful life I have been given. I am thankful for my hard working, loving husband and my three beautiful, healthy, smart children. I am thankful most today for my brother being released from the hospital after a bout with pneumonia and for a friend who just had a brain tumor removed and is recovering beautifully!! I am truly blessed and I don't think I could possibly express how grateful I am for all I have!

Heather said...

I am delurking now! I love your blog and think you and Harper are precious (and Scott too :)). I love that you just keep it real! I started following your blog when Harper was in the hospital. So glad she is perfectly healthy now! I love all of her monogrammed things....as I am a lover of all things monogrammed...I even have a monogramming business. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the story you shared about her precious dress. I can't wait to follow on your journey on the Compassion Trip. That is so cool!

Checking in from NWA. :)

What a powerful testimony from the maker of the precious dress. Gave me goosebumps, too!

I'm thankful today for sweet children (ages 3 and 5) who point me to God. Here I thought I was teaching them for THEIR benefit -- but I learn as much from them, because God uses them so mightily.

Happy 1000th Post!

I am a FAITHFUL reader of your blog and have been since Harper was born! You have been an inspiration to me as we struggle with infertility. We have been trying for 3 1/2 years. Thank you for remembering those of us who are still in "the trenches."

I am SO thankful that I have married my best friend!

Thanks for the sharing your life with us! Much love...

Cindy said...

I have been reading your blog since I came across it when Harper was born and had complications. I started praying for her and have followed you since. I fell in love with all your posts and all the beautiful pics. My 2 year old little boy will ask who is that when I am looking at the blog and the pics. I tell him it is his future girlfriend :) I am thankful today for an amazing husband and 3 healthy beautiful children. Our God is so good. I married my best friend and have the family I always dreamed of. I go to bed a happy lady at night.

King J's Queen said...

I am thankful that we have had gloriously beautiful weather today AND I am especially thankful that my precious miracle baby is turning eight tomorrow!

erika said...

I love love love reading your blog! It reminds me of living in the south (we used to live in Nashville) and I like to think that our girls would be friends if we were "real life" friends. I am SO thankful for my two wonderful babies (Emily, 19 minths and Ethan 12 days old) and my husband, Matt. I guess I could go on and on about all of the blessings in our lives but my family is the first thing that came to mind. I feel very blessed!
Happy 1000th entry!

Heather said...

I'm thankful for 3 beautiful, healthy children!! Even the 2 crazy boys who make me say things like, "We don't pee in the trash can!" and "Who peed all over the shower curtain??!" Boys are in a whole different world than little girls! ;)

Keep it up Kelly!

bbeatley said...

I am thankful to have 3 healthy sons, a husband who loves me, and a God that sent His son to die for me! I am thankful that I can see and know how to read. I am thankful I can read blogs from people I have never met, but feel God's undying love pour out of them.
