Feeling thankful tonight...

So I thought maybe I should post an update on us.. We are doing good!!! Gracie had a really tough time at first... I started praying for God to help her understand what her Daddy does and that he will be back, just like the last time he left. No matter how much I talked to her about it, she couldn't understand!

So I continued to pray... About a week after praying I got an email from Karen H. (a friend from Philippi Baptist, the church I grew up in!) She had the idea to mark off the date of his return on the calendar. Then right before bed, place a sticker on the day that we completed! This would help her visualize when Daddy's coming home. I thought it was a great idea. We were busy, so I didn't try it right away... I continued to pray. Then my friend Christy (the friend who holds the Bible study at her house) suggested the same thing!! I'm not joking. Well since I was given the exact same idea... I decided to try it!

So the next day, I sat Gracie down and explained what we were going to do. A couple of hours later, Gracie came running up to me... She said, "Mommy now I know when Daddy's coming home!!" We have been doing this for a few weeks now... And she is doing so much better. She really understands when he's coming home!!! Thank you Karen and Christy! God used you, to answer my prayers!!
