Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, and I have a moment at the computer to write a post, I wanted to make a list of the things I am thankful for this year.

I am Thankful...

... For my husband, who works so hard to provide for us, and for my boys who are a constant source of entertainment and joy.

... For the fact that those boys might fight and scream and yell at each other, but I always find them together playing or reading. They love each other deeply, and I am so thankful for that.

... For the two distinctly different, but wonderful families that are a part of my life. To me there is no "his family" and "my family". It is all family, and I love them all dearly.

... For the new life that will be coming in May next year. My sister is pregnant! I am so excited I can hardly breathe sometimes.

... For the freedom we still have, no matter how frustrating it may seem sometimes. We still have a lot of freedoms and choices that many others do not have.

... For the wind storm we are having today. Hopefully it will turn into rain soon. :)

... For the blessing of friends past, present and future. I was greatly blessed the other day by someone who I haven't seen or talked to in years. I am so thankful for all the people who have come into my life, who are in it now, and who will come into it in the future.

... For always having food on the table, clothes on our backs, and always being provided for. God is good, and has always given us exactly what we needed.

... For the hard times we have gone through and made it out the other side alive and intact. Of course, I'm not usually thankful in the midst of them. But hindsight is 20/20 and I am thankful to see the strength and blessings that come from those trials.

... For our little home, with our little lot, and our little garden.

... For all of you who visit this little space on the internet, who encourage, who laugh and cry with me, who say "I've been there, it's ok", or who just stop in to say hi. I'm so thankful for each and every one of you. 

Happy Thanksgiving friends! May your day (and weekend... and year!) be wonderful and filled with love and laughter.

What a beautiful picture! I can't believe your 'baby' is standing with his hands in his pockets just like his big brothers, and they are BIG. It just doesn't seem like I've been gone that long. Your thankful list is such an encouragement. You are relaying True beauty through your pictures and words and I continue to pray over your space here. I pray that the Lord will bring readers who will be edified by your relationship with God and your family and your commitment to using your time well as a wife and mama!

And speaking of your little space. Wow! Things are looking so professional (yet oh so inviting) here. You've done a great job. I love it all. :)

Blessings, Debbie
