Thankful Thursdays


I'm joining It's a Small Town Life for Thankful Thursday this week!

This Thursday I'm joining a new linkup, which is Thankful Thursdays!  
      One of the most important parts of my prayer life is my gratitude journal. I find that if I go into prayer first by thanking God for all of the things that he has done for me that it enhances my prayer life.  So today I wanted to take a moment and share with everyone what I am thankful for!

   This week I'm thankful for my husband.  We are going on a very special vacation next week, and last time I was on this vacation I didn't have him with me.  We were married, but our marriage was broken and hurt.  I remember watching the Disney parade and looking at the families standing nearby.  I had sunglasses on so no one noticed me cry, I sat there with my children, babies at the time, and looked at those families longing to have that.  I never thought I would be there again..
   Next week I'll be there once more with a man that God has taken and completely transformed.  My husband is now the man that I prayed he would become, and more.  He is an amazing husband and father, and a spiritual leader on top of that.  Now we are all going together, and we have more kids in tow this time!  Our life has changed 100 percent since that day I sat alone on the sidewalk.  It makes me emotional to think about it, but this year, he will be by my side, with my baby on his shoulders.  I have to remember my sunglasses, because I know I'm going to cry..  but these tears will be happy ones!  
   I'm thankful that today, I have the things that yesterday I prayed for.
   I'm so thankful for the life he has given me.
