A Thankful Heart & A Big Thank You

Does anyone else have such a crazy busy life that they sometimes forget how important it is to just simply sit and be thankful? I firmly believe it does a body (and a mind) a whole lot of good! Thanksgiving and peace fall hand in hand according to Phil. 4. I surely want to experience the peace of God so why do I sometimes spend more time complaining about things rather then offering thanksgiving? (Just thinking out loud here)

So as I  sit and think on things I am blown away by the love and care that Brian and I have been shown by a certain group of friends who have just jumped in along side us and our journey in not only our adoption process but in our lives. 

A few weeks ago most of you know a corn hole tournament was held as a fundraiser for adoption expenses. It was an amazing day! Everything was wonderful! Even now as I think back about it I am again blown away by the love and care (and work!) that went into this. We have never known a group of friends who have only known us for such a short time to go out of there way for us like this group.
Brian and I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this possible and to those who came out to support us!! We couldn't have done this without any of you! We were blessed more then words can say!, not to mention we ended up winning a set of corn hole boards thanks to Kristen buying us a few raffle tickets :)

We are so thankful. So far through this process we have seen God open doors through others giving financially, giving of the time and giving of odd jobs. We are seeing God do some amazing things and the journey has just begun. We are excited to see where this road will take us. A dear friend reminded me to focus on the journey at hand not the destination because we often miss so much that God wants to give or do in us otherwise.

So a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has come along side us in some way, shape or form!
