I don't have a lot of time or energy for a lengthy, thought-provoking post, so I will appease my blog-writing guilty conscience by posting a quick Thankful List today.

1) I am thankful for the rain. We've actually had to dust off the sprinklers (an obvious necessity for Texas summers, so we have MANY) this week, because it's been so hot and dry! It's drizzled all day today and it's been glorious!

2) I am thankful for my job. I really do love it.

3) I am thankful for my sweet friend, Laura, who told me today that they are starting their paperwork to begin an Ethiopian adoption! May she pave the way....

4) I am thankful my house is peaceful. Ellie's sleeping. Richard's working. I hear the rain pelting the window. Mmm.

5) I am thankful for frequent garbage pick-ups. Think of how much it would suck to have your garbage pile up in the garage...especially in summer...and garbage bags full of dirty diapers!

6) I am thankful that God has gone before me and staked my path with never-dimming solar flares. He knows where I'm going, where this family is going, and will open and close the right doors.

7) I am thankful for supplementary insurance. I have some now that I'm working! That means Ellie's private physical therapy is covered, that extra speech therapy will be covered, and most importantly, my MASSAGE therapy will be covered!

8) I am thankful for sippy cups with a straw. Ellie doesn't have the wrist control to sip a "normal" sippy, but with a straw, you don't NEED to tip the cup!

9) I am thankful that we sold our car, without too many hassles or hiccups.

10) I am thankful that my dear friend, PM, will be embarking upon a bazillion new opportunities and experiences when she and her family move down to Minneapolis at the end of the month. (Of course, I'm SELFISHLY sad she's leaving...)

Thanks, luv. I'm selfishly sad, too, but we all know this is a good thing.

*I'm* thankful for the way you've always shared the way God's given you guidance; I look to you for inspiration on following Him, even if that means booking a moving company.

I'm thankful for you my friend. For your strength and courage. For your unwavering faith in the Lord that He does all things well. I'm thankful for your encouragement to me as we start this amazing journey to bring home a baby girl from Ethiopia. I'm thankful to God for bringing you into my life. Love you!
