Thankul Thursday

In daily life we must see that it is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.

(Blogger ate my first post before it auto posted so here  is a redo to the best of my recollection! If you haven't backed up your blog I would highly suggest it)

~We were SUBMITTED to court in Dariya's country!  We will hear in a couple weeks when our SDA appointment is (should be mid-late June).

~Alayna's endocrinology appointment went very well.  We both like the doctor.  She is now taking a synthetic thyroid replacement tablet daily.

A smile everytime she sees the camera come out - HAM!
~All the awesome people who are working overtime to help us bring Dariya home.

~The sweet friends I have made along this adoption journey.  How I love my RR friends, some aren't even traveling to the same country as us but God has brought us together, and I am very thankful! (oh,toffee girl you are top of the list)... May the Lord reward you for your kindness ... Ruth 1:8

Working hard on the stairs with her PT, Ms Erin
~My sweet hubby who has been working like a dog around the house to get the honey do list cleared off. (Ok maybe it is because his family is coming in from England next week but, I will take it all the same!)

What are you thankful for this week?

Toffee girl here :) I just wanted to let you know how much I love your sweet family, how much I LOVE your sweet girl. You are never far from my thoughts and your friendship is a daily reminder of how much God must love me, He gave me you, and that is a priceless gift. Do you think those English folks might like some toffee?? I'm having a fundraiser for Vashti Walters, you know.... :)

Love ya,
Renee Tam
