Thankful Thursdays Top Ten #11

SOOO many things to be thankful for this week!

1) Pool Time!
We got to go to the pool last Saturday with the Huff family.  First I love spending time with them - such an encouragement in my life!  Second Grace LOVED it!  We had such a good time!

2) Cookies!
My neighbor brought me a plate of peanut butter cookies!  We have been enjoying them.  It is nice to (finally after four years of living here) get to know our neighbors!

3) 9 Weeks!
31 weeks of healthy pregnancy and into the single digits left to go!  So thankful!

4) Big Girl Bed!
Hubs and I decided to move Grace to a big girl bed (twin bed) instead of converting her crib to a toddler bed or doing two cribs.  I know there will be some challenges (thanks Super Nanny - only had to put her back in bed 3 times for nap today) but last night she did great and she seems really excited about it.  The crib won't leave her room so she'll be ready for when the baby is here!

5) Park Time!
We spent A LOT of time at the park this week! :)  It was fun to catch up with friends, hang out with my kiddo and my parents even dropped by!

6) Story Time!
We went to our first ever story time at the library!  It'll be good to work on sitting still :)

7) Words of Encouragment
It's been a rough week as far as encouragement goes.  I feel weight around me but I am reminded of verses like this from this morning's quiet time: Psalm 62:5 Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him.

8) Being Prepared
I'm thankful that I feel completely prepared for this baby to get here.  I feel like there are still a few little things to do but nothing that needs to be done NOW to be ready.  Beds are good to go, I feel mentally prepared, I have some people lined up to help with Grace as needed and I'm excited to meet this little one (and FINALLY tell you all her name!)

9) Family Time This Week
I feel like we have had a lot of family time this week.  Tuesday night we spent time just playing, Grace and I have been able to go parks and on other outings.  I don't know, I just like the feeling of conectedness right now!

10) Protection
I'm thankful that the Lord is able to protect me from myself, to give my family tools to weather the storms and just the peace that comes from knowing HE is in control and I don't have to be.

Be Thankful And Link Up!
