Thankful Morning

This morning I am indescribably grateful for...

A cereal bowl that didn't make it to the dishwasher.

A toothbrush that didn't get put away.

A book left out of the bookshelf.

A toy left in mommy's tub.

A purse full of rocks and leaves hanging on my chair.

My Little Pony fruitsnacks that missed the trashcan.

A bunny that hopped out of the toy box.

Jammies that didn't make the hamper.

Little fingers that love to touch ornaments.

I've spent the greater part of my morning picking up, cleaning up, fixing up after my children. Normally, I would be exasperated.

Not today.

Today I find all of it beautiful, and I feel honored. Blessed beyond words. If I could go to school right now and pull those girls out of their classes, I would. I want to hold them.

This morning a precious family left Arkansas Children's Hospital without their baby girl. I don't think appropriate words exist to follow that statement. It is unimaginable. It is heartbreaking. It is something only a loving Father in his infinite wisdom and love can know. I beg with every person reading these words to stop what you are doing right now and pray for James and Kim Crumby. Precious Hannah is safe and perfect. I can only imagine how big her smile is right now, seeing all she is seeing. But a mommy and daddy's journey without their child began today. Please please please pray for this family. They believe in prayer.

I am joining you in prayer for the Crumby's. My heart breaks to think of their loss. I cannot imagine. I am rejoicing in the fact that they are believers. God is faithful and will get them thru this.

I have also felt very thankful all day today. Some things I'll never understand this side of heaven.

I am praying. I know this pain all to well. I know the only way I was able to go on is with God. And as much as we dont understand I know God is still in control.

Praying for these dear parents. I know everytime I look at Eden Jade I praise God that He let us bring her home. My heart is sad for them, as I wipe away the tears. But as Tammy said God is faithful and He will wrap His arms around them and get them thru this.
