Feeling oh so blessed

This past week has really had me doing a lot of reflection. There has been some heart wrenching news coming my way from friends in regards to babies. Babies (and parents) that really need my (our) thoughts and prayers.
Each day I thank God for all the blessings he has given our family, I am truly so thankful. It makes me step back and reflect daily how everyone's lives are so complicated. It's almost frightening to think of all the personal struggles people are going though, and on the outside, no one knows. Life can be so tough, and certain circumstances can make it even harder. I try to take just a few minutes each day and say what I am thankful for. We all need to start doing this.
I heard a quote a quote the other day that went something like, "What if you woke up tomorrow and the only things left were the things you thanked God for tonight". I think of this quote often and am really taking it to heart.

As for Whitney, I know I may be sounding like a broken record, but she is doing so good. She is such a happy baby and is totally spoiling us (making up for the first month I suppose). She hardly cries unless she is hungry and I cannot believe she will be 5 months old next week. She'll be starting cereal and vegetables soon, growing up so fast.  I'll leave with you some photos, enjoy....and remember to count your blessings!

  1. I had tears in my eyes reading this. Thank You for you prayers. I think my sister is doing well but I know inside she is hurting. I'm hurting inside still. I just don't understand how some people can have 20 kids and some people can't even have 1. I am so happy that Whitney is doing so well and that Doctors are so happy with everything, that really does put a smile on my face!!!! Even though my family is going through a hard time, it makes me so very happy that Whitney's future looks like it will be a wonderful future!!!!!!
