Thanksgiving in anticipation

A little knob moves it way from one side of my belly to the next.  Another one pokes my side.  My womb changes shape with each movement.  As I type my son runs up to me and asks, "Where's the baby's foot now?" My stomach pulses in rhythm as Baby gets the hiccups.  All of these reminders point to an amazing homecoming of the newest member of our family and bring me much joy as each day brings us closer to holding Baby Brother.  It's only a matter of weeks now and I can think of little better ways to celebrate the holiday season.  There is only one greater anticipation which is infinitely more.  Praise God for this baby.  Praise God for our coming Savior even more.

173.  Each day that brings me closer to our new baby boy.
174.  Each day with it's joys and trials that can lead me closer to our Saviour.
175.  My son reciting his first Bible verse.  "Oh God, be my help."  Then he proceeds to tell me that God can be my help too.
176.  Seeing eye to eye with my husband on big issues and the comfort and support that he brings.
177.  Birthday celebrations and fellowship with friends.
178.  New yarn and bitty baby hats.
179.  Thanksgiving day with friends and family.
