thankful thursday ♥

{1} Late last night my Dad called me up to tell me a few things, one of which I was incredibly shocked to hear. I don't know the full story, just bits & pieces, but a high school friend of mine, Aaron, was supposedly playing pool Saturday night when someone slammed him down on either the pool table or the floor..not really sure! But, I do know that he received a skull fracture and has some hemorrhaging taking place inside the brain. I immediately came home and messages his Mother on FB last night to tell her of my concern and that I would be praying for them. She wrote me back within minutes and let me know that the doctor had just left saying that the skull CT showed the blood clot had decreased in size, which was a definite answered prayer but that Aaron was still in LOTS of pain from the incident. I am thankful he is stable at the moment and things weren't any worse than they are! Please join in & say a quick prayer for a full recovery!

{2} I am thankful I have the day off today! I really need the alone time to sit down and focus on studying for an OB test next Tuesday!

{3} I am thankful that ALL 33 miners were rescued safely in Chile! What an amazing thing!

{4} I am thankful that Dad, Mom, and I had a safe trip to and from Atlanta {3.5-4 hours away} for my first dress fitting! It fit as snug as a bug in a rug! Seriously, that's exactly what I felt like. Sure hope I steer clear of those extra few pounds this holiday season ;)

{5} I am thankful for prayer & just how powerful it really is. These special people are asking for prayers to be sent to them & their families: Meredith, Ashley, Jessica, & Aaron {mentioned above}.

{6} I am thankful for these special people in my life!
