30 Days of Gratefulness | Days 16, 17, 18 and 19 | Life & Miracles

Wish I had more time to write. I've said this before, and I suppose I should say it again - but writing is my first passion. It always has been. When I was in high school, I would write in journals - for HOURS. Then in college, I began writing a book that I never finished. However, it is on my 'bucket list' to finish it. And while I might be 50 before then - I'll do it! :)

Nevertheless, it's been a few days since I last wrote about my 'thankfulness'. Which is a bummer - because I'm so grateful for each and every breath God gives me. Plus, I feel like this year has been an incredible one. I feel like the blessings are ABUNDANT. And LIFE is just so beautiful. I never, ever want to take a single moment for granted.

One of those major LIFE blessings is this little boy. My Eli. I love him more than my words can convey. He is such a smiley, sweet boy - and a blessing in so many ways - he makes LIFE so much fun and he brings his daddy and I so much JOY.

I'm so thankful for the amazing people in this life, including my cousin, the one on the right in the picture below. He just had his second brain surgery. He had a tumor that needed to be removed - and the doctors were unable to remove all of it the first time.

Thankfully, through God's amazing guidance of the doctor's hand, the second time around was a complete success - and the entire tumor was removed! How great is our God?! Thankful for the inspiration that he and his wife Amy are - and their two adorable kiddos! Lucky to call them my family - and even luckier to call them my friends.

My good lookin' cousin Jim and his gorgeous wife Amy!

Another amazing miracle?! My god-daugther, Macie Jane. Just this past week she took 32 unassisted steps. When doctors and therapists said she wouldn't walk at all - she continues to prove them WRONG. She's a FIGHTER.

God is an amazing God - and if we just believe and have faith - HE can make anything happen. This precious little one is a true testament to that!

This LIFE is so amazing - and I'm so grateful that I get to LIVE it, alongside so many amazing people - and miracles!
