A Month of Thanks: Day 6

Psalm 69:30 "Psalm 69:30 - I will praise the name of God with song, And shall magnify Him with thanksgiving."

Here are the two things I am thankful for today.

1. Naomi: 9 years ago God blessed our family with the addition of Naomi. From day 1 Naomi has been a unique, wonderful, strong willed, and challenging child. Her birth was difficult (shoulder dystocia). Wayne and I always said that she was like a tank from the get-go. She didn't feel fragile like her sisters, she was built tough. Naomi has always kept me on my toes. As a toddler she would find creative ways to get what she wanted (wait for a snack, no way. I'll just push a chair to the counter, climb on the counter, and open the cabinet and get my own snack). It has been a joy to see God transform Naomi into a sweet girl. She has a tender heart for things of the Lord and tells us all the time that she wants to be a missionary when she grows up. Although the early years were very difficult, we feel so blessed to have Naomi as part of our family. God has used her unique personality to transform me. 

2. Sophia: 8 years ago our sweet Sophia entered our lives. Her sisters adored her and loved taking turns holding her. Sophia continues to surprise us every day. One thing we've loved about Sophia is how she has enjoyed staying "little". She still loves to play dress up, play with her little sisters, etc. Sophia also loves anything artistic: drawing, painting, crafts. She made the cutest lion craft for Micaela's birthday. Sophia also loves math and is learning to read better every day. Sophia gives some of the best hugs and just loves spending time with you. I'm looking forward to seeing how God works in Sophia's life and transforms her into a godly young woman. So thankful that God put Sophia in our life.
