Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful

on November 26, 2012

From WordPressThankful. In the United States, yesterday was Thanksgiving, a holiday where people spend time with family and friends and remember the things they’re thankful for.

I think the idea of being thankful and reflecting back on good things in your life is something that naturally happens towards the end of a calendar year. This year, I’m really thankful for my good health, which affects everything and everyone else in my life! These legs and feet take me everywhere I need to go!

Share a picture which means THANKFUL to you!

I’m know this is cliche and I’m certain it will be way overused in this theme, but I can’t help but be thankful for my family….

Most of all, I’m so very thankful that my sweet 2-1/2 daughter is very healthy now, despite the rough start she had.  Born 16 weeks early at only 1 lb, 9 oz, she fought for her life in the NICU for 4-1/2 months.

It’s hard to go back and look at these pictures, to remember this difficult time.  But this is where she came from.  Because of this, she is a tough little girl.

And now look at that precious little face.  She is such a little sweetheart too.  I know God has big plans for her!
