Thankfulness - The Blogging Challenge

This week I was reminded, yet again, that I am not actually in control of what happens in life.  Just when you think you have it all figured out fate steps in, shakes it's finger right in your face and says, "I don't think so"!  I am supremely grateful for the most wonderful and supportive school family any principal could ever be lucky enough to have.  I felt loved beyond belief this morning when I shared my gift, this "surprising"poem, with them...

My wish for you this time of year,
Are days filled with fun and holiday cheer!
Family, food and gifts galore,
You never know what the future’s got in store.

So make some time to take a rest,
And hold on to the ones you love the best,
Enjoy the moments shared with kith and kin,
Before the hustle bustle of the new year begins again.

And just in time for this special season,
Quite certainly there must be a reason-
Here’s a big dose of holidrama,
Next summer I’m gonna be a Mama!

I don't ordinarily turn to mush over pregnancy announcements, but yours was extraordinary news this morning! I was a basket case the rest of the day, and it's not even happening to me!

You have now taken a place of priority on my prayer list. Rest in the words of the psalmist, King David...

"For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God!"
(Psalm 139: 13-17)

Your Christmas miracle has brought unspeakable joy to my heart.

Congratulations to you and your sweet family.
