A Day of Thanks

I am thankful for so many things today. To start with, the Lord woke me up today, and gave me the alertness and energy I needed so that I could spend time with Him in His Word, and go running (He does it every morning! Our God is so faithful!). Also, Miguel gave me the biggest surprise! Before breakfast, while we were preparing for lunch, and in every spare moment he was working on some project that he wouldn’t let me see. Then at lunch time, he revealed his masterpiece. He had done his spelling and handwriting on his own so that I could have more time to relax and do my own things this afternoon! I was so surprised (and thrilled)! Then, to top it all off, I was able to find an internet hotspot where I could use Skype to talk to my family. It was incredible. When Olivia started playing violin for me, I started bawling. It was beautiful to hear the voices of the people I love the most. God gave me what I needed today, and so much more! I just had to share how He has blessed me. May I in turn be used by Him to bless others in this new year of life that He has given me. I am now 18. :-)


  1. Well even though over there your birthday has passed and you are hopefully having a peaceful sleep, you are very much on our mind because today still is your birthday! What a blessing you have been to us, my much prayed for and longed for child. And even though you are now officially an adult, "as long as I'm living my baby you'll be". I am so proud of you! I miss you like crazy and will love you forever!

  2. I love you, Mum! As long as I'm living my mommy you'll be! I miss you like crazy too!

  3. Beautiful 18 years! Princess're the princess of the family.
    I'm proud of you .. and what we think and the way you are as a person!
    I hope to talk to you soon on Skype!
    Enjoy a wonderful age is full of learning
    loves you
