Thankful Thursday....



I am thankful that we have made it another day with our "son." (I'm still getting use to the idea.) I am thankful that my health has remained great during this pregnancy and that I now feel movement from baby K quite often, which reassures me all is well.

I am thankful that school hasn't been too overwhelming so far. I am thankful that I didn't wait until the last minute to start my field service time (40 hrs in a public school by mid November) and that I already have completed about 11 hrs.

I am thankful for the student I am mentoring. He's a class clown and a bit immature for his age, but he makes me smile. He's been very receptive towards me so far, and that makes me feel as if I am in the right profession.

I am thankful that Saturday, our nephew will be 13!!! We only see him in the summer time because he lives in MT, but we love and miss him very much!

I am thankful that other people have stopped to find things to be thankful for today--you know who you are :) I am thankful for the cyber friends I have made and the prayers they have lifted for me. I am thankful that I can pray for them too knowing we serve the same Higher Power.

I am thankful that Autumn begins on Monday--yipee!

I am thankful I still have 97 shopping days until Christmas!

What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful that even when I'm overwhelmed, stressed, or feeling hopeless -- I have a great and powerful God who loves and cares about me more than I can imagine. I'm grateful for a wonderful husband. I'm thankful for insurance coverage, being at a great hospital, and the possibility of a next step. I'm thankful that I have other things now to distract me from IF. I'm grateful for some good friends and a church community. And I'm grateful that I've met people like you who prompt me to be thankful and remember the author of all.

I'm so glad to hear such a great pregnancy update!!

Thank you for leaving such a nice comment. I can tell you it made me feel better just reading it. I am thankful for so many things, but one thing that makes everyday a little easier is having a support group and family of bloggers that understand and love each other. I am thankful for you!

Hi Elaine, I found you on Mel's (Stirrup Queen) blog roll. Your blog looks familiar though so I may have landed here before already. (Have you participated in ICLW in July and Aug? If so, that may be when I came over.)

Anyhow, I'm glad that you are having a good pregnancy with your baby "boy"!!! May God continue to protect you and your son as you both continue to grow and wait till the right time!

Hi Elaine, It's me again...I roamed your blog a bit and have a few quick questions...

- Did you proceed with IVF and Shared Risk program?
- Was Baby K conceived by IVF? If so, how many fresh and frozen cycles did it take?
