i've also been thinking about the many blessing in my life lately. every tuesday i email with my three best friends about praises and prayer requests. we pray for each other through the week and also give praise and rejoice in each others joy. this week i had so many praises!
1- going to visit cami for a long weekend! i've already talked about that one, so it's the first and short.
2- i have a great job that lets me stay home every monday with my baby. and this week i'm taking tuesday off as well to have an extra day with C, and an extra day with Shaun since he will be out of school all week!
3- we finally made it to church this past sunday! YEAH!! double YEAH! it was so great. we got introduced to the nursery and the facility. i felt really comfortable leaving C in there and she did great! we went to the early 8:30 service b/c that works best with her everyday schedule. as soon as we got in the car to leave C fell asleep, so shaun and i decided to see if we could go to cracker barrel for breakfast. she did great again! she slept almost the whole time and didn't wake up until i was finished eating. she is such an amazing baby! we are truly blessed.
4- date night is BACK! shaun and i keep talking about re-establishing date night on a regular basis, but we haven't been able to nail anything down. well this week my sweet husband coordinated with my mom and set up a bi-weekly schedule for her to come babysit so we could go out. i'm so stoked! when he told me i instantly got a HUGE smile on my face. our first date is next thursday! i can't WAIT!!!!!!!
5- i've lost 8lbs so far since i've started WW. i know that sounds like a silly praise compared to the others, but i'm still excited about it. i'm having a off week right now (not being the best point tracker), but for the most part i've been working really hard and i'm so thankful to see results.
that's it. i hope you get the chance to sit down sometime soon and think of all the things are have to be thankful for. it's so eye opening sometimes and in a world where we hear more bad things than good, and i really value weekly praises from friends.
here are some random pics of C. just cute, so i thought i would share. have a great weekend!
