Well I missed Thankful Thursdays mainly because I was busy with my little thankful who decided she didn't need a nap! But I want to post anyway. What am I thankful for?

This is probably the worst picture that I have ever taken but it was the proudest moment of my life. I thought I was thankful then but a few things that have happened since to make me realize how thankful I should be. We have good friends that have been trying for years to have a baby. They had some "help" and became pregnant with triplets. We were all estatic. At 19 weeks, she lost all three babies. She is almost at her due date now and I know it's going to be a rough month for her. She held them, she kissed them, she loved them, she lost them. They are now trying to figure out their next steps. They love babies and seeing them with Bailey and how sweet they are with her breaks my heart. Another friend of mine that I grew up with has a 3 year old little boy and found out she was pregnant with a little girl. She was so happy. Now in her third trimester, she found out she has breast cancer and had to have surgery and now has found out that she will have to go through Chemo as soon as the baby comes. her facebook post today says " I want to be excited for my induction but it's hard because I know what is coming after." I feel like we take for granted having healthy babies and healthy families. So, please say a prayer for my friends and hug your babies a little tighter tonight. I know I will!
