Thankful Thursday!!

I have so much to be thankful today, I couldn't pass jotting them down.

1. I am thankful for the health and strength my little family has. Baby is 100% recovered, no long term affects!

2. I have been pregnant 3 times this year alone. But unfortunately, no babies. My last miscarriage was on Sunday, and yes, I know I'd be OK with out another child, it was hard this time around, I was frustrated and confused.

But, I am thankful for family and friends who have helped me understand, and I thank my Father in Heaven, for the Answer I needed. I am not a person who is trying win a contest with the # of children, I just know without a shadow of a doubt that their is another member of our family trying to come down.

3. I am thankful for everyone praying about this court situation, our prayers have definatly been answered. thank you...

I know my bloggy world doesn't know about this, I apologize. It was just so hard on me for the past year, I couldn't share it, I wrote the post a hundred times, and erased it.

You see, to make a long story short...

Maka was through his business charged with trespassing and criminal mischief.. I will tell the whole story later, but it would have thrown him in jail for a year, and a huge fine. It happened over a year ago, he finally went to trial on this yesterday.

The judge stated the maximum sentence,which the judge said, a full year in jail and a 3,000 fine, I freaked out! But then the prosecutor stood up and said that we had made a plea deal.. that if they would drop the Criminal Mischief, that we would drop our counter sue, and we would pay the civil part..

he thought for a second, and said OK, I want to tell you the whole story, but it will have to be another day, we are currently involved in a appeal for the civil, so I will share the whole story when it is finished.

4. I am thankful for the trees changing their colors. I know that i despise the winter, but the colors that fill the earth are just beautiful.

5. (on a lighter side) I am thankful for little fun creepy spooky things are coming our way! ( thanks to who ever dropped off a box full of Halloween decorations) you sneaky thing you!

OK baby is yelling at my to get him out of his highchair, so I better end this lengthy post!

Kids, I know for a shadow of a doubt that their are blessings with EVERY trial which might come your way, you just have to look for them..

Go ahead find them,

And then thank your Father in Heaven for those blessings and name them one by one!

Ofa Atu!

WOW! I have had my fare share of miscarriages and they are heartbreaking. You have amazing faith! You seem to barely get through one trial before another comes your way. Growing up it was that way for my parents and they always got up the next day with faith and patience and what an example that was for me!! They did what the spirit instructed. You seem to handle it how they did .You have some pretty blessed kiddos! Hope it all works out:)

I love your posts, have I ever mentioned that?
I was very "in the box" this morning, and you made me realize how much I have to be grateful for. AND that I SHOULD be grateful for it!!
thank you for continually helping me to strengthen my testimony.
even though i dont really know you and it may sound a little creepy.

Sorry for all of the negative things that have happened lately, but I'm so grateful that everything seems to be settling down and things falling into place.

I am so sorry for all that you are going through. I just had a misscarriage in May and then thought I had another the beginning of this month. I am glad things are looking better for Maka. I pray that this will be the end of your trials for awhile and that you can have some peace. Take care of yourself and remember you are loved.

You are one of the strongest gals I know. I have had my share of fertility issues so I know the feeling. I also know that it makes you stronger and appreciate things more. It sucks to say but is true. There are reasons for everything. You will be there someday and it will be great!!
Your are a fighter and that's why I like you!

You have a lot on your plate right now. I'm so sorry for the miscarriages. I'm impressed that you seem to be holding up so well.

Kerri said...

That was great that you opened up and shared that Devri. I'm very sorry abou tthe miscarriages. I only knew about 1 of them. And I hope things will work out with Maka. He is a good man and I know things have been thrown out of proportion. I hope things work out with him and he won't have to go to jail.

You are amazing. My husband and I are trying for our first. We are in our sixth month. I just found out that three of my close friends are pregnant. One wasn't even trying and the others were pregnant the next month. Me and my husband don't even talk about it anymore because it makes me want to cry and then he feels maybe it's him. I have a hard time talking to my friends beacuse all of them have had easy pregnancies. I wish you luck with everything.
