Thankful Thursday--COURT DATE!!!!!!

YES!!!! Today we got that much anticipated phone call that we have a court date for our little boy in Ethiopia!! (I am smiling soooo big!)


But guess what else!?! It's scheduled for March 10th!
Know what's cool about that?
IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!
Seriously, can you believe that? Honestly, my birthday has never been a day I look forward to. Not sure why, but you can ask Joe, I tend to just fly under the radar & have even been known to be a bit grumpy. Ok, really grumpy.


WELL, NOT THIS YEAR, BABY!!!
I am stoked! Maybe this was God's two-by-four gentle reminder that I should be celebrating this life He's given me. You know, where I've been & where I'm goin'. It's been a crazy ride, & it's about to get crazier........

And I am thankful for every day!
