today i am thankful for my daughter.  she is 2 months old.  she slept 7 hours last night.  ate real quick.  slept 3.5 more.  she smiles all the time and brings more joy to our lives then we could ever have imagined.  God has brought some not so joyous things to my life the past few weeks but I will continue to be thankful because "these things remind me to depend on Him with all my heart.  They prompt me to trust in His love, His forgiveness, His power, His sufficiency, His ability to overrule and His transforming presence within me."  
--paraphrased from 31daysofpraise by ruth myers

one thing that brightened my week was a package from the author of an amazing blog.

enclosed were the BEST gingerbread cookies I have ever ever ever tasted.

thanks ms!!  :)
