I am thankful for my husband. He is my best friend and I even enjoy grocery shopping with him. He is a wonderful father and works so hard to provide for us. I feel so lucky to have him.
|I sorta want bangs again.|
I am thankful for my growing baby boy. My excitement to meet him grows everyday (kinda like my belly) and I am beyond blessed to have the chance to love my little boy!
I am thankful for my parents. They raised me with ethics and morals and showed me what a true marriage is. They worked hard so my brother and I would never be without.
I am thankful for my brother. He might be a pain in the butt, but I still love him and I treasure our childhood together. See picture above :)
I am thankful for my niece. She will never know how much she means to me. There were many times in college that she brought me relief during stressful times and happiness during heartbreaks. And now I am so proud to have her be such an important person in my girl's life.
I am thankful for my grandparents. They have each influenced who I am today and I will forever be grateful to them.
I am thankful for my best friend. She is an amazing person and I have been very blessed these past 10 years or so to know her and be a part of her life. She balances me out and we are a classic case of opposites attracting.
|Six years ago? We look so little.|
I am thankful for all the other great friends I have in my life. There are many I don't get the opportunity to see very often, but they are a huge part of my life and I love them very much! I have a lot of friends like this. I'm blessed!
I am thankful for my home. I have to remind myself of this one pretty frequently, but I really am blessed to have a warm safe place to raise my family. I am thankful for my home. I am thankful for my home. :)
I am thankful for the blessing of staying home with my little(s). It doesn't make our finances easier, but it is worth every penny we don't have. I will forever be grateful that I am able to stay home and raise my children.
I am thankful for my education. It wasn't easy for me to work a billion jobs and go to school full time, but I am so glad that I did it. I am thankful that my parents instilled in me the work ethic that got me through those many years of busting my butt.

I am thankful for my gracious and loving God. He has shown me how to be loving, respectful, and compassionate to all people. No matter what. I have learned the beauty of forgiveness and hope.
I am thankful for Simply Mommies and for Katey. Working with Katey on this blog has brought me joy and challenges me to be a better mom and to really think about my writing. I am also thankful for the 5 of you that actually read our posts ;)
I could go on and on, but I am sure you're sick of reading. Try and make some time this week to think of the things you are most thankful for. It really helps me to keep things in perspective.
I hope you have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving.
