Thankful Thursday



God is so good, ladies. He has really taken us and settled us in a new place and made it into a home for us. It's been hard, but I really feel as if the last couple of weeks have been really good. Here are a few of the reasons why:

* We have joined a "recreation club" which is really a gym with a few extra benefits. But it's giving Hubby and I the opportunity to work out, the kids the opportunity to have fun splashing in the pools, and all of us a chance to relax. Very important when you are all under the stress of having moved across the world.

* Hubby agreed to the kids and I going for a State-side visit this fall. We'll get the chance to spend a week in Miami (Miami friends - block off some time for me the last week of October!!!) before continuing on to visit my family in Arizona. We are all very excited about this!!! I'm already making my list of what to buy that I can't get here!

* I got the chance to spend some one-on-one time with a new friend from church. It was nice to get to know her a little bit better and I really enjoyed something I thought I wouldn't.

* Emily has really stopped complaining about living here and asking why we can't move back to Miami. That in and of itself is a miracle!

* Speaking of Emily, she has made tremendous progress with her new piano teacher. Her lessons have always been spotty - teachers move, or the timing doesn't work or something. But the past few weeks she's learned so much. We have a Bulgarian woman (whom I have to go pick up and drop off) who plays professionally in the lobby of a hotel here. She comes twice a week for an hour each time and she's really helped Emily to make huge strides in her playing.

* We were invited to a July 4th barbecue at the home of some new friends!!

I guess I'm just thankful that God was faithful to His promise to go with us wherever we go!!

I know how hard it is to start a new life in a different country. I am glad that you are doing well and are able to come to the States in the fall.
Cool that your daughter is doing well with her piano lessons.

Thank you so much for sharing your grateful heart with us.

Blessings to you and your wonderful family.
