Grateful Friday

30 weeks pregnant
DSC07185
The day after John's accident our friends took the kids overnight and I came home to an empty house. It was late and I was tired and I'd never ever been without John at night. I was lonely, and sad. I saw my reflection as I passed by a mirror and realized I wasn't alone, I had this little baby right there with me. I grabbed Jacks Spider man and Stella's froggie and slept on John's side of the bed holding all of my babies and slept in peace.

Today I'm grateful for:
- John recovering nicely
- Our friends and family who have shown us so much love
- Jack and Stella who despite everything going on have remained their silly little selves and make us laugh
- A healthy pregnancy
- My friend Gretchen for being there for me yesterday when I had a breakdown
- John has a phone interview today

Heather, I just now read about John's accident-that's crazy! I am so glad that he and your family are okay. But how scary for you!

This picture of you is beautiful! And I will be praying for John and his interview. I am confident that God will provide an amazing new job for him that will meet all of your needs!

xoxo Andi

For some reason it did not let me put in my information on my comment above. This is Andi from "Tales of a Crafty Mama", just in case you were wondering :)

I am glad to hear the good news. I can't get the picture here at work but I will check the picture when I get home.

I hope you are well. Take care and take one day at a time.

This is such a beautiful photo! I wish I'd taken more pics of myself when I was pregnant. I always say to myself "next time I will!" and I hope it's true.

On another note, you've visited my site so you've probably noticed that I "borrowed" the idea of Grateful Friday from you. I'm so glad I did. I can be quite negative at times (obviously from some of my blog posts!) but this makes me re-evaluate what I have and treasure it. Thank you.
