Gratituesday


Eighteen years ago a baby was born in need of a Mom and Dad. The LORD dropped this little baby into our laps and we have been thankful ever since. 

We brought home a very serious looking baby that had rolls on his rolls.  His feet and hands were huge! We thought, "oh my, those feet will cost a fortune at some point to clothe."

It took about six months for this little guy to perk up. We did a lot of work on bonding. All of us took turns playing with him to help him catch up on major milestones. By the time he was a year old, he was a very happy little guy, well little except his hands and feet! For some strange reason this little guy could throw a ball, any ball perfectly when ever he threw one. He had perfect pitch as a toddler and has just gotten better and better. 

We have watched this little baby grow into a fine young man. This week my baby among all the rest turned 18, the magic number for all young men. He is a gentle giant according to his teachers at school. He is a gentleman, a leader, a lover of God and a force to be reckon with on the basketball court. He still loves anything he can throw.

In just a couple of weeks this young man will be graduating from high school. At the moment he has a 3.9 average. He studies hard and does his best. He truly is a gentle giant and I love this boy who has now become a man. God is truly good, all the time.

Thank you Michael for being my son and thank you God for sending him our way. 
What are you thankful for?


In Christ ALone,

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the ground each morning Satan says, "Oh crud, she's up".
