I am thankful for social media. I know, I know...there is a lot of negatives to things like twitter, facebook, and even blogs. However, there are also a lot of positives. The biggest for me is the ability for me to keep in contact with friends that I have all over the states and the world. I feel so blessed to have these friends and to be able to keep in such great contact with them.

I am thankful for Christmas pregnancies. One of the mom's I babysit for is due any day with her second child. I am so excited to meet this kid! It got me thinking about my own pregnancies. I had the privilege of being pregnant with three of my four kids during the Christmas celebration. I found in each of those years that Christmas took on a whole new meaning to me. The helplessness of Mary and my Savior seemed so much more real. Even in those moments, or maybe even more so in those moments, I can't seem to fathom the humble beginnings of my Lord.

I am thankful for my health. I stepped on the treadmill this morning for the first time since mid-July. I had an entirely new appreciation for being able to get on the treadmill. I've been having some health issues and while the root cause has turned out to be fairly minor, the symptoms have been anything but minor. I'm starting to feel like myself again and it really felt good to be able to run some this morning. I am so thankful that I am in good health and can experience life to its fullest.
