thankful thursday {link up}

{Link up your own Thankful Thursday post below...}

This Thursday I am thankful for...

1) Your kind, kind words.  The love and kindness that poured in after yesterday's post on adoption seriously overwhelmed me to tears on a few occasions.  I am so grateful for the support and encouragement we have received from family and friends as we have made the decision to start pursuing adoption.

2) Unexpected visit.  I have a very dear friend who has lived with her husband overseas for the past couple of years... she recently had her first child... and they are in the process of transitioning from Tiblisi, Georgia (the country) to St. Thomas island.  They are in the states for a brief period of time and I wasn't sure if I was going to get to see her before they were off again.  Well, I received a phone call on Tuesday at 5:00pm, saying they were about to drive through Louisville and could I meet for coffee? ...ummm, YES!  It was so great to see them and get to love on their beautiful baby girl!

3) BFF sleepover.  I also just found out that my childhood best friend is driving up from Nashville to stay the night with me tomorrow night!  We'll do dinner and drinks Friday night... then probably brunch and window shopping on Saturday before she has to head back.  It will be a quick trip, but I can't wait to see her!!
