We left scott's family today and are headed home to unpack and repack to go see my family!
Harper is having a great time! She has learned two new words this week: "uh oh" and "thank you". Good timing, huh?
I'm so thankful for two sets of grandparents who are just crazy about Harper. I'm so thankful my family is healthy. I'm thankful for my husband and daughter (soooooooo thankful). I'm thankful Scott has a job and we have a home and plenty to eat. I'm thankful for friends and a church family.
But most of all, this year - I'm actually very thankful for the hard years of singleness, for the horrible pain of infertility, for the horror of almost losing a child and for the chance to stare REAL poverty in the face. Because all of things have opened my heart to love and be burdened for others. It has given me the bravery not to just look away (or down) when someone is hurting but to hold their hand and cry with them. It has made me say "I'll pray for you" and then actually do it. And it has made me closer to my wonderful Saviour than I ever dreamed I could be!
