I Am So Thankful

With Thanksgiving just over a week away, I thought I would take a few minutes to share some of the things that I am so thankful for.
This year has certainly been crazy and different than any other--in so many ways, but each day I continue to be thankful for all that God has given to me and my family.

I am thankful for a healthy family! I am happy to say that none of us have been very sick in the past year.

I am thankful for our jobs.

I am thankful for the sunny month of November!

I am thankful for the healthy baby boy growing inside of me, and for all of the joy that I know he'll soon bring to our family.

I am thankful for children who sleep 13 hours each night and for the sleep that I get as well.

I am thankful for my wonderful husband, children, parents, grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.

I am thankful for the bible study that I have been working through this fall and for our great teacher, Amy!

I am SO thankful for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and for the gift He gave me of eternal life.

I am thankful that Peter will be off work all of next week. I am excited for our fun plans as well!

I am thankful for my birthday dinners out with my dad. I can't wait to see "Christmas at Northwestern" together. What a great way to get into the holiday spirit and have a great night out with my awesome dad!

I am thankful for my warm house and cozy fireplace!

I am thankful for the sale of our car and the upcoming paint on our walls.

I am thankful for our wonderful church and the many friends that we've made there. I am looking forward to the annual Thanksgiving Eve service and pie social.

I am thankful for children who won't let me forget to pray for a meal. Prayer is so so so important for us!

I am thankful for each new day.

Well, those are just some of the many things that I have to be thankful for in my life. There are just way too many to list!
I hope we all take few minutes to reflect on the many blessing in our lives this Thanksgiving season, and that we give thanks where thanks is really due.

We really are ridiculously blessed, aren't we?!
Yet I still manage to find plenty to whine about. HeeHee. ;)
