Ten Days of Thanksgiving: Day 8

Today I am thankful for the healthy kids in my life.




I am so thankful for my 4 healthy nephews! Over the last few years, I have learned that you can not take the healthy birth and development for a child for granted!

Late next spring, I will be an aunt again as my older sister is expecting - I am praying for another healthy niece or nephew!!

Right there with you - can't believe how much I love my niece and nephew and am grateful everyday for their health & happiness!

Definitely agree with you - out of friends and family who had babies this autumn, each had a health challenge. It's made me appreciate the robust health all my little brothers enjoyed!

Health and happiness are always big things to be thankful for which often get taken for granted. What little cuties you have in your life!

Adorable as always :)

I totally agree that you can't take for granted the importance of having healthy, happy children. My heart goes out to anyone with a sick child or who has lost a child. As you get older you certainly start to meet a lot more people who have gone through that...

Yes! I am so glad my nephew was born full-term and HEALTHY and has remained so. And I'm just thankful for the health of all my family members! We're a lucky and blessed bunch.

Such a good thing to be thankful for! So many kids are being born with problems...my niece was, but thankfully she is okay now!

Your nephews are adorable and I am thankful this year for the healthy kids in my life too. I've been thinking about writing a post about it actually, to go along with one of my favorite causes, St. Jude Children's hospital.

Also, thanks for your support on my last post. I really appreciate it and am so proud to have so many wonderful people in my life (both real life and blog life!).

Aw, those are some cute faces! Kids make life just a little bit less predictable and add a lot of laughter.

What you said is so right - the healthy birth and development of a child CAN'T be take for granted, and yet, so often we do... thanks for the reminder Lisa!
(BTW I really love this series you're doing!)

If you have a niece what's see going to do with 4 male cousins! At least it has to be better than having 4 older brothers right?
