Thankful Thursday

This week I'm thankful for:
--giving birth in our newly redone hospital maternity ward
--supportive friends and family who have showered us with gifts, especially yummy meals
--Time off from my job, though I still have work to do (enough to keep my mind busy)

And I'm most thankful for a baby born two thousand years ago, in an unsterile barn, who was probably shunned by his family and friends for being born out of wedlock (though some random strangers from both near and far brought priceless gifts to pay for their soon journey to a far off land...)

Share your thanks with Iris!

Isn't it wonderful to have a wee one at this time of year to help you live out that very first Christmas? We're told Mary treasured these things in her heart. I understand that now!

Have a blessed day!
