So Thankful

This time of year always makes me so thankful for all that I have. I see so many in need and hurting & I realize how much I take for granted. I am so thankful to have been blessed with the amazing man that God gave me as my husband. This man does everything he possibly can to be able to provide for our family. But not only is he an incredibly hard worker, but he loves his family so much. I love to see how into our kids he is. I see him light up everyday when he walks through the door and he is bombarded by three totally pshyched out kiddos. He loves to hear them shriek "Daddy!!!". It just warms my heart. He is the father I never had, always wanted, and so thankful that my own children got.

i am thankful for my three crazy kiddos. yes, there are many days when I am certain I can not do this mothering gig a moment more. but with God's grace, I can start new everyday & see my children the way my Father does. They are truly amazing people. They make me want to be a better person. They bring me to my knees & bless me greatly. i am thankful that they are healthy and that God trusted me with them.

i am thankful for the country I live in. I am very thankful that I am free to worship God & be able to have the rights that I do, especially as a woman. I am so very thankful for the military that serves and protects this mighty nation. I am thankful for the leadership of this country who seek the guidance of the Lord.

i am so thanful for my family, friends, and all that God has seen fit to give me. But most of all, i am thankful for the little baby boy that was born to save me 2000 years ago. Merry Christmas everybody.
