Yay for life!

The kids are excited about their grass, but actually I think I am more excited :) 
It smells so good already!
I had a really great day today. A lot of things happened that just felt like true blessings. One of them being we were in the process of buying Alaina new shoes. They are shoes designed so that you don't have to wear your AFO's (foot and ankle braces)
We were hesitating because when all is said and done they are about $300 out of pocket!
We finally decided that we needed to bite the bullet because she walks a lot better in them than she does with the AFO's and regular shoes.
I happened to be talking about it with the director of Alaina's school and one of the mom's overheard me and said I have a pair that my son has hardly wore. If they fit Alaina you can have them!
Wow, so today we went in and guess what they fit perfect with some room to grow!
This is one thing that I am so thankful for today!
What is something you are thankful for?

As little Cora's story has been on my mind so much, I have to be thankful for healthy children! (Did you see info about the Etsy benefit sale on Joy's Hope? I'm working with Julie and trying to get to every Etsy-er I know!) By the way, I sent off something to your girls a few days ago, so if you haven't yet received them you should be very soon! :)
