Forever Grateful to God for


And in the blink of an eye, another 8 days have flown by without me making a single post.
I have not managed to make this daily blog a priority. As I sit here thinking about that, it disappoints me. With all that goes on in our lives right now and the journey God has us on, I need to keep my focus off the bad, and onto the good, the beautiful, the fun, the funny, the precious, the miraculous.

So what am I grateful for today?

For the dryer that some wonderful friends gave us. It is so nice to be able to dry our laundry at home again!!

For the wonderful rib dinner my hubby made!! Totally yummy!

For Gord taking the boys out this morning to let me get a little more sleep. It didn't work as well as I had hoped because Isaac didn't want to stay asleep, but it was a great gesture anyway.

That Gord went with my sister to pick up my Aunt and Uncle from the Buffalo airport so that my mom didn't have to.

That we are one day closer to an offer on the house. Please Lord let it be enough.

Well, I was going to try and write some more, but Isaac is awake again and crying. Gotta run.


Wow, I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted on here. It has been my intention to get back to posting every day, but I am really good at procrastinating. Regardless, I am here now, and I promise to do my best to make the effort to find the good in every day :)

So, more than a month and a half has gone by since my last post. ALOT has happened during that time. One of the things I am most grateful to God for is the safe arrival of our beautiful baby boy #3.

His name is Isaac Joshua Melville and he made his entrance into this world on July 2nd at 3:30am. At 9lbs he is my smallest baby :) I am so grateful that after all the trouble during my pregnancy that he is here, safe, and healthy.

I am grateful that his two older brothers have made the adjustment to having another member of the family like pros. I really thought we might have issues with our 3 year old, but everything has gone quite smoothly. Our 5 year old is making every effort to be helpful. They are totally in love with him, and proud to be BIG brothers :)

I am very blessed. I have a beautiful family.

I am grateful for a husband that loves me.

I am grateful for God's grace.

There is so much more that I am grateful for, but i'll save that for another day. As for today, I am grateful that God is in control of it all.

Love and prayers to all.
