Thanks for joining me for another week of TGI Saturdays. I really appreciate the community we’ve had over the past few weeks. Thanks for sharing your great post and thanks for having a small chat with the host, that’s one of my favorite things about hosting this party.
I have something special to share with you today. Today is one of my sons’ birthday. He will be 4 years old, but I won’t get to sing him happy birthday or hug him or kiss him. I won’t get to watch him open presents or reminisce on how much he’s grown since his birth. In fact, I won’t be with him at all, I won’t even get to see how his features have developed since he was a baby.
As a mom, all I can do is remember him, think about him, honor him on this day and be filled with the hope that our Heavenly father is throwing him a spectacular heavenly fourth birthday. All I can do is believe in my heart that God is hugging and kissing him for me.
My son’s name is Kaiden. He died 5 days after he was born. He was a gift given to me for a short time, but he changed my life immensely. Someday, I am planning to write a book about that year I carried him, he lived and died. It is a story worth telling and I hope God give me the words to tell it well. I hope someday I get to tell his story again and again, and help others with our testimony. For only God knows his plans for my future. I hope it is great.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Jeremiah 29: 11 NIV

Blessings to you.
There is always something to be thankful for, even when it’s not Thanksgiving time, but in spirit of Thanksgiving season, we tend to reflect a little more on what we are thankful for. Sometimes, remembering to be thankful is a bit more challenging than other times, especially at times when you find yourself bombarded by worries and frustrations. But there is always alot to be thankful for. I would love it if you come read “My Blessing List” (what I’m thankful for) this week, as we prepare our hearts for another year’s Thanksgiving Day.

Sharon (Sharon Sharing God) shared the post “The Mask We Wear” at last week’s TGI Saturdays and it is my favorite party read this week. It is a well written, thought-provoking and at times funny post. It talks about various reasons we sometimes hide who we really are behind a mask, this thought was inspired by the costumes we wear for Halloween. I hope you can take the time to have a read.
