Thankful Thursday Friday, Take 46

A day late...but I have much to be grateful for and need to get back into the habit. These last few weeks, I'm thanking God for...
  • Elijah's safe arrival
  • his health and excellent weight gain since birth
  • the most amazing husband in the world, who has taken incredible care of me and is a joy to watch with his son
  • my parents and their wonderful support
  • my mom's staying for a week to help us
  • my in-laws and their wonderful support
  • my mother-in-law's staying for a week to help us
  • the church women who are bringing us meals
  • the midwives and nurses who provided fantastic care when we were in the hospital
  • the fabulous lactation consultants at the hospital in town
  • an abundant milk supply
  • good health insurance
  • Steve getting more time off than we anticipated
  • cooler temperatures
  • my new diaper bag, ordered from this seller (highly recommended!)
  • cards and packages in the mail from friends and family
  • encouragement from friends and from strangers
  • His grace in revealing my sin
  • His mercy and patience with me
  • the Psalms
  • His promise to "gently lead those that have young" (Isaiah 40:11)
  • sustaining me through the hardest three weeks of my life

that diaper bag is cute! Though not as cute as your son :)

I figured these would be the toughtest weeks of your life...but it sounds like you've got lots of people around to keep you afloat. Best wishes as a mom, Amy!
