Thankful Thursday

I'm so thankful that we've had our Jadyn for 3 years. Three years ago this week, we received our referral and saw her photos for the first time.
We won't ever forget how exciting that was. I remember the tears just streaming down my face as I looked at her photos. It's a wonder I heard anything our social worker had to say that day.

I can hear her now, over the baby monitor. She's supposed to be napping and she's in there jabbering instead. :) We are blessed that she's ours.

I'm thankful for Christmas and all of the busyness. Even though it can be a busy, hectic time, I'm glad I have family and friends to shop for, parties to attend, cards to send out,etc. It all means that I am blessed to have these friends and loved ones in my life.

Just this past Monday, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, wondering how on earth I would get everything done before Christmas. Today I'm feeling more upbeat. I'm so thankful I have all this stuff to do. It is Thankful Thursday after all. When Friday and Saturday come, we'll see how I feel. I may be more like the Grinch instead of a jolly old elf. :)

Very sweet post!

If you can find a way to not be overwhelmed, let me know! I haven't done anything for Christmas yet. Not a thing---except for the tree. Yikes!
