What Are You Thankful For?

  As November begins, I feel it necessary to remember to be thankful. Thanksgiving is such a special holiday and we definitely take it for granted. I'm going to try and post everyday something I am thankful for.

Today I am thankful for:

  Our precious little Lincoln North! Oh the joys this little man has already brought us in his few days he's been with us. He truly is a joy, and delight to all of us. His contented spirit is like a soothing balm to our hearts. He will sit and gaze at you with his precious baby blues, studying your face. He seems like a wise old soul at the ripe age of 14 days. Maybe he will take after his namesake, the best president this country has known...for now I will rest in the fact that our Mr. Lincoln seems to be a kind, wise, contented person, or at least I pray that will be the man he becomes.

  It's a wonder how you can fall head over heels in love with someone you just met! The smell of his sweet little head...the little whimpers that escape him as he dreams in his sleep...the adorable back stretch he does when you take him from his car seat. These are just a few of mine and Bob's favorites! Addie would say she loves his long skinny fingers. Shelby would say she loves brushing his hair. Gabe would say he loves it when he opens his eyes and looks at him. Alexis would say she loves everything about him. Ty would say he loves to hold him. 

  For these things I am truly thankful~
