Thankful Thursday

Happy Thursday, all!! Hopefully you've been having a good week so far. Even if you haven't, you now have something you can be thankful for--tomorrow is FRIDAY!!! I'm always thankful for that, aren't you?!

I'm also thankful today for good news... I had a dr. appointment/sonogram today to see how the follicles are responding to the shots, and they are growing quickly!! Seems to me they are bigger earlier than my last 2 rounds of shots--so I'm very thankful!! This means I won't have to order more medicine ($$ savings), and we can get this show on the road quicker! I guess, even after five years of trying/waiting/trying..., God is still needing to work on me regarding patience! =) So good news, and we'll go back again Saturday morning and hopefully be ready to trigger ovulation! Yeah!

I'm thankful for pretty weather today. This time of year, the weather can be pretty crazy in Texas. In the last 3 weeks, we've had cold, bone-chilling weather, perfect 75 degree sunny days with just a hint of wind, drizzly fog, and some humid days. Tomorrow is supposed to start off warm, and be in the 40s by the afternoon. Crazy Texas--but got to love it!! It always keeps me on my toes, and even with icky overcast weather in the morning, I'm given a gorgeous afternoon to be thankful for right now. I'm not a typically deep/analytical thinker, but today made me realize that life is like the weather today... sometimes you're in a yucky place that just feels awful, looks awful, and seems down-right depressing (this morning's gray skies, "spitting" drizzle, and overall yuckiness), but God will always, always bring the sunshine back. Even through the tough times of losing 3 babies to miscarriage and Jonathan being born too early, God has brought sunshine back into my life. Plus He continues to remind me that there will always be sunshine, even on the days when I can only see the gray. And I'm so thankful for that!

What are you thankful for this week???

Hey friend, I am so glad to hear about the sonogram and we will be praying extra hard over the next few days!!!
I am thankful so many things.... I am thankful for blogging and the world that I get lost in sometimes in cyberspace! =) I am thankful that I start my new job on Monday and we are on our way to financial peace at last! Talk to you later. Love you guys!

I am thankful for life. It sounds simple, but when I think of all the things that happened and could have happened, I am grateful.

I'm thankful for supportive family and friends. It seems that the spring is the hardest time for me at work. We all complain about the fall but it really seems like now's the hardest - but I'm thankful for the job I have, that I (mostly) love!
Continuing to send prayers your way!
