So Thankful

I want to give thanks today for life, for health, for home and for those who make me feel at home whenever I am with them.

For all of you who read my ramblings with such grace and teach me so much each day.

For my two best friends so far away and their wonderful husbands and new families.

For the world’s greatest mother who is also an incredible friend.

For my manuscript in my agents inbox—and for my amazing agent!

For the great God of love who gives and takes away, always with grace, grace, grace.

For my husband, the love of my life, my most cherished friend. For the two beautiful children God has blessed us with and the joy of loving them each day.


for our newest BLESSING on the way!

(Yes, you understood correctly. I’m due on June 20th!)

For these and for every breath in my lungs, Lord, I give thanks.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!!


  1. What wonderful news, and what a perfect day on which to share it! Congratulations, Bethany!

  2. Congratulations!!! So happy for you and your family!

  3. Happy Thanksgiving! And congratulations on your pregnancy, that's just a couple days away from my mom's b-day. Praying for a comfortable, healthy pregnancy.

  4. Congrats! My youngest turned 2 on June 18th - a beautiful birthday month.

  5. Congrats Bethany! So happy for you!

  6. Oh my, Bethany, I've got tears in my eyes here, that is the most wonderful news! How often I thought about you and hoped for this news whenever I saw you wrote a new blogpost. Even now while reading this post I thought, "Wouldn't a pregnancy not be the cherry on the pie of thankfulness..."
    And there it is !!!

    Love from Belgium, Elizabeth

  7. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you :) Praying for a healthy, happy pregnancy and little one for you.

  8. Dear Bethany,

  9. I am so happy to read your wonderful news! Congratulations!


  10. I am so, so very happy for you and your family! Is not our Lord's timing the BEST timing ever?

    I have to admit though, I am a bit jealous. I'd love another baby soon, but my husband isn't so sure, and with present minor health issues, it isn't advisable, I guess. Either way, I wish you a happy, healthy, and blessed nine months. :)

  11. Awww, congratulations, Bethany! I'm so excited for you and your family. :)

  12. Thank you all for your congratulations and kind words! We are absolutely thrilled, and I look forward to sharing this pregnancy with you as it progresses.

    God bless,

  13. Oh Bethany, what wonderful news! My eyes filled with happy tears when I read it. I hope that you have a healthy, happy, uneventful pregnancy and I'm so happy for you all.

  14. Hooray! I'm so happy for you! I'll pray for a healthy baby and healthy mama!

  15. Bethany - I just wanted to say congratulations to you and your family on your newest blessing. I pray that this will be an easy pregnancy for you.

    God bless!

  16. I used to follow your blog along time ago and it just randomly popped into my head!!! "I bet she has another little one by now" was what I thought... overjoyed to see you expecting another!!!! My 1st was due June 11th and was born on the 14th. It's a great birthday I absolutely love it! His name is Logan James, always had an immense fondness (like you) for that name.

  17. Congrats to you, Bethany! I am so happy for you and your family. :)
