Thankful #1

Waiting is hard.

From mid-August until October 1, I gave up something I really enjoy for the sake of prayer for our little one and the others who are waiting for their families. Since that is drawing to a close, I think I will focus this month on another way to pray: thanksgiving. So my challenge to myself is to come up with at least one thing every day that I am thankful for--and here's the kicker--that relates specifically to this waiting time. It's easy to be thankful for other things, even adoption-related-but-not-waiting-related things. But can I find His hand in the waiting? I'm going to try...

1. I am thankful that the longer the wait goes on, the more my heart seems knitted to my daughter's heart. I love her more than should be possible to love someone you've never met, never seen. This is, I know, a gift from God who is Love. Thank You, Jesus.
