Thankful Thursday

Today is thursday right? It is hard to keep track of the days this week. We have so much to be thankful for this week. With the power outtage our basement was flooding terribly. My father in law came over and was in the basement for 12+ hours constantly baling water with buckets. It was awful. Matt was also with him but at one point left and went to go get a generator which was in short supply. If we didn't have Vaughn during this time the damage would have been horrible. We would have lost so much. Thank you Vaughn!!!!
Thanks to Myriah and James who had us over for dinner and let us shower there while our power was still out. Also Myriah has blessed us beyond words with toys for the kids for Christmas. With finances so tight it was definitely a stressful thought, and now that has been resolved. THANK YOU!!!
Thanks to the hospital for allowing me to bring Sophia to work with my when we didn't have power. It would have certainly been awful for Matt trying to warm a bottle on the wood stove!:-)
Thanks to Vaughn and Cindy for having us over for dinner yesterday. It was so delicious and after working all night and all day it was a wonderful blessing. Thank you!!
And most importantly THANK YOU GOD!!! For blessing us so tremendously, with friends, with family, with JOBS! (Matt started working last night), with food, with our home, with all we need and then some.
This past week without power and it being so cold outside has reminded me of how blessed I/we are. God continues to bless us beyond belief. I am so thankful that we made it through this storm so well.
