The Glad Game

One of my favorite movies is Pollyanna...in the movies the little girl plays a game where she finds the positive in every situation.  I don't know if it's hormones or what but I've been a little blue for the past few weeks. Things that would ordinarily make me sad for a little while, makes me sad for a long while.  So I need to play the glad game right now and, well essentially count my blessings.

I'm very thankful that today my baby is the size of a lime.  I'm so thankful to have reached this point in a pregnancy!  For the first couple months every pain in my lower abdomen was nerve-wracking, so it's nice to be able to relax.

I'm thankful for a job that I like and employers who appreciate me.

I'm thankful for a husband who is such a hard worker and who proves to all single women that good men are out there and worth the wait.

I'm thankful for babies! I'm thankful for my little nephew Jax, and our new little niece on the way, I just call her our little turkey babe.  I can't wait to see her, and I'm so happy that God has blessed my dear siblings with little ones!

There are so many more things I'm thankful for, and it does my heart good to think about them! I'm going to do it more often! 



  1. :) Yay baby is the size of a lime! I think I'm going to cry, lol! I remember when Jaden finally reached that point!!! It goes so fast! Now he's so big and strong his punches and kicks are actually painful at times! I'm so happy! You two are going to have the most beautiful baby! Oh I can't wait to see him or her! Enjoy every minute, even though I am at that I can't wait to feel normal again, I am sooo going to miss him being this close to my heart! Much love!

  2. You're right, Meg dear...it's so good for the soul to play the "glad game"! I've needed that this past month too. Even though this month has been filled w/ lots of delights, it's also been filled with lots of discouragement and a feeling of "stuckness". - I'm thinking of joining a ladies Bible Study when we return from our vacation...primarily as a potential place to make new friends, but the added benefit of accountability will be very welcome. Hope you are enjoying your day my friends!

  3. So happy for and the progress the baby is making! It is a hormone thing. I remember wanting to cry for abslutely no reason at all! It is very normal for you to feel that way. Love you much!
