Thankful Thursday

As I was laying in Caden's bed yesterday morning, snuggling with him before waking him up, I was just thinking about how different my life is from last year at this time. I have posted about this before, so I dont feel the need to go in to details. I was just amazed at how things have turned around so quickly, and are better than I could have ever imagined. Through everything that was happening in my life, I had a peace about it that some may think is very strange. I knew that there was no use in crawling in my bed and crying until things got better, even though that is exactly what I wanted to do. I filled my time with Caden and his activities, church, and my friends. I knew that God had bigger plans for us, and that they had to be just around the corner. That is where that peace came from, my faith. All I could think about yesterday morning was, "Who would have thought at the beginning of this year that I would have someone like Shane. Someone that we are so comfortable with and loves us for who we are." We are all three happier than we have ever been, and all it took was a little lot of patience. I am so excited about what else is in store for us! This chapter in our lives is just getting started! Thank you to everyone that stood by Caden and I when things weren't so great! Thank you Jesus, for loving us unconditionally and holding us when we were to weak to stand on our own!
