Thankful Thursday

A grateful heart is one that finds the countless blessings of God in the seemingly mundane everyday life.

~Our All for Dariya golf tournament and dinner and silent auction being such a HUGE success.  We are fully funded, meaning between our savings and the donations from our iPad giveaway and All for Dariya day we pray that we have enough to cover Dariya's adoption, (as long as gas prices don't keep rising! =)

~The people that surrounded us and helped us pull off the All for Dariya day!  People we didn't even know came and served dinner!  The people that attended the golf, and/or dinner, our prayer warriors and those that donated to Dairya's fund have blessed us beyond measure.  Thank you hardly seems enough for all the people who have helped us bring Dariya home.

~Aidan was such a trooper all day on Saturday, it was a LONG day for an 8 year old (and this 42 year old LOL) being out at the golf course all day (in 50 degree weather) and then going straight to the dinner and auction until late evening.  He was a blessing and didn't complain once.  He helped where needed and was a delight.

~Alayna's giggle and silliness!

Do you like my hat?

~Beautifully sunny, spring days where we can play at the park and meet daddy for lunch.

~Alayna had her final transition meeting with her early education team that comes to the house, as she only has 6 months left in early intervention before going on to preschool in the fall.  Her report that will be shared with the school was awesome.   

What are you thankful for this week?  Please share one or two things...

I love your quote at the top of this post. It is so easy to walk through life without realizing God's countless blessings that He pours out on our lives. Over the past week, I am most thankful for God's sustaining grace on our family.

Oh that hat is the greatest! Sounds like your weather has been like ours, not out of the 50's in days!

The picture of Alayna just cracked me up!

And my heart is so happy that you all are edging ever closer to your beautiful girl.

I am thankful for my husband who works tirelessly and selflessly for us all.We don't tell him often enough how much we appreciate him.

I am so thankful for my grown children,who by watching them daily,allow me to see,that on the days when I thought I had failed miserably when they were young,maybe,just maybe, I hadn't.Gives me hope for our 2nd set we are raising!
