453.  for my little boy who is 3 months old today

454.  for these words from my "Mom's Devotional Bible," p. 505 "...and still other times disappointment simply leads us straight to God.  We come to the end of ourselves and are left with no alternative but to seek him as we have never sought him before.  Here, prayer becomes our drink, the Bible our food, and God's presence our sole sustenance."

Hey Amber! Thanks for reading my blog and commenting :) I didn't discover your blog until now--not sure how I missed it. Anyway congrats on your little boy--he is precious and I love the name. I can't imagine what it's like being a new mother but I'm encouraged by your list of thankful things, and I know that other moms too appreciate your honesty!
