Today was a crazy day. We had some scary moments with Lydia, including a minute or two when she stopped breathing. But amazingly, we made it to both family Thanksgivings.

We started at Micah's parents where Lydia got to snuggle again with her Aunt Liz.

And take a nap on Grandma and Grandpa's bed.

And see Great-Grandma Thompson again!

And be generally photographed with awesome people.

Then we jumped over to my Uncle Jimmy's house to have dessert with my family where Lydia was photographed with more awesome people.

I have so much to be thankful for. I am alive. My husband is alive. My sweet baby girl is alive. And even though this life is promised to none of us, we have the hope and promise of eternal life in heaven and a Savior who died to give us that life.

This song by Nichole Nordeman is another one I listen to on repeat during the bad days and pretty much sums up my general thoughts these days. I hope you all found things to be thankful for today.

When the sun starts to rise
And I open my eyes You are good, so good.
In the heat of the day

With each stone that I lay

You are good, so good.

With every breath I take in

I'll tell you I'm grateful again.

When the moon climbs high

Before each kiss goodnight
You are good.

When the road starts to turn

Around each bend I've learned
You are good, so good.
And when somebody's hand
Holds me up, helps me stand

You are so good.

With every breath I take in
I'll tell You I'm grateful again.

'Cause its more than enough
Just to know I am loved And You are good.

When it's dark and it's cold

And I can't feel my soul
You are so good.
When the world is gone gray

And the rain's here to stay
You are still good.
With every breath I take in
I'll tell You I am grateful again
And the storm my swell

Even then it's well and You are good.

How can I thank You?
What can I bring?
What can these poor hands
Lay at the feet of a King?
I'll sing You a love song.

It's all that I have to tell You I'm grateful
For holding my life in Your Hands.
