I really want to title this post
things that suck about being on bed rest.
This morning I sent Mackenize off to her last soccer game and her end of the year party.
And I was mad.
I want to be there so bad!
I hate missing out on life and I hate not being able to be there for my kids.
And I hate that bed rest affects way more people than just me.
And I could go on and on about all of the reasons why bed rest sucks.
And part of me really wants to
but instead I'm choosing to be grateful and thankful for all the good things in my life right now.
I want to dwell on those things instead.
Because when crazy uncontrollable things happen
we get to choose our response to them.
And instead of being bitter I want to be grateful.
So here are the things I choosing to be grateful for.
-A precious baby that I'm on bed rest for. I'm so thankful that he's still on the inside and that he's growing bigger and stronger each day.
-My husband who has been serving me and the kids so sacrificially this past month and a half. He has been such a trooper and even finds ways to go out of his way to bless me. I'm one lucky lady!
-All the friends and family that have been helping with the kids! 3 kids isn't a small task. I know it's tiring and they have been going out of their way to keep them entertained and alive. We are so blessed by the people God has surrounded us with!
-Little, pretty reminders of the outside world.
-Friends that have stopped by for a visit or my favorite...game night! And friends who bring yummy treats.
-Leggings and Uggs. The best bed rest wardrobe ever.
-These three cuties that keep life from being anything but boring.
What are you choosing to be thankful for today?
