Thankful Thursday

This week has been one filled with blessings!  I’m thankful for that alone.  First, I’m thankful for our new lwad pastor that we have at church.  So far so good.  I’m also thankful for the message that was brought forth last Sunday about whether or not we’re really ready to lay it all on the line for Jesus (or whatever your faith maybe).  I’ve enjoyed every message I’ve heard our new church but this one moved me to tears.
It reminded me that instead of saying why me, I need to focus more on holding on and using my faith in a way that helps others.  I have to walk the walk at all times.  Often times, our prayers are answered when we least expect them.  It just requires a little patience.
Which brings me to another thing I’m thankful for this week.  Not going to lie having two young children, a husband that can be trying at times and trying to figure out what I want from my life at this stage leaves me with little to no patience.  However, I’ve been praying really hard for patience and actually making an effort to be patient.  Well, I’ve noticed that my moments of impatience has been less and that makes me and my family happy.  
I’ve taken the time to read extra books, play games and dance around with Moo and JJ.  Low and behold I had been dragging around here pouting about not being able to go to BlogHer12 because I was originally scheduled to go out of town during that same time.  Then that trip fell through at the last minute and with just a week left I haven’t found any sponsorship.  But once again God showed me that if I just be patient, He’ll open the Doors of Opportunity.
Still not going to BlogHer12 but I am going to lovely blog conference next month! (More on that later).  Which reminds me that I want to give a huge thanks to Alicia over at Mommy Delicious!  She’s the main reason I have the chance to attend this upcoming event. She’s such a godsend, a friend and has been a huge supporter of YUMMommy for over two years now.
I’m thankful that I’m getting to know more you out there.  As the weeks go by I’m seeing more new faces in the comments, posting on the Facebook page and saying hi on Twitter.  You guys are awesome!  Keep the comments, tweets and convos flowing.
What’s at the top of your thankful list?

    I've been wondering why everyone has been asking if they'll see me at BlogHer. I didn't realize there was typo in this post. My bad. I'm not going to BlogHer but another conference. Maybe, we'll bump into each other at one of the other blog conferences coming up later this year?
