Last Saturday our youngest daughter hosted a baby shower for her big sis. Daughter C above checking our an adorable outfit. After having two daughters, our oldest was in need of more baby clothes and did the Lord provide.

Our youngest put on such a nice ladies tea party and shower for her sister. Several ladies from church brought some goodies but most of the work fell on my girl. Being pregnant with three little ones at home, homeschooling and fitting in doctors appts. for our Peanut made life a bit crazy last week but she did an incredible job. Here she is above holding her youngest, D. I love having two daughters that are so close yet such totally different woman; it is such a blessing. They are always there for one another.
What's a baby shower without a nana in attendance?
Today I'm thankful for:
~two incredible daughters, their hubby's and all our grandchildren. I know I get a bit like a broken record about this but it is one of life's greatest blessings.
~I'm thankful for french toast with real Maple syrup and turkey bacon.
~I'm thankful for sunshine to warm our days.
~I'm thankful for our last pastor in California, the way he shepherded his flock and his great love for the community of believers. Haven't yet found another gem quite like him.
~I'm thankful that we live in a state that has Whole Foods and other health food stores and the availability to get alternatives for Peanut's new diet.
~I'm thankful for living in a time where we can buy "gluetin free" foods, non-dairy foods and other essentials to help our little Peanut grow. I'm thankful for the unknown websites out there, the ability to find them, to help with special diets and menu planning.
~I'm thankful that I have free hours in my day to lend a hand in any way possible, be it childcare or menu planning.
~I'm thankful that I have an Abba Father who knows just where I am and how to meet our deepest needs.
~I'm thankful that with the Lord, nothing is ever wasted and all things are redeemed.
Blessings on your Wednesday.
