I am Thankful

I am thankful for my family!  I am thankful for my dear husband who loves me for who I am.  He encourages me in our endeavor to teach our children at home.  He is such a source of support.  I am thankful for all of the sacrifices he makes to put our family first.  I am thankful for how he loves me and our children.  He really strives to be the best husband and father possible!

I am thankful for my children.  For Arianna’s “just for Mommy” hugs and for Ryan’s sweet kisses.  I am thankful for all of our fun times together.  I am thankful that I get the opportunity to be at home with my children.  There truly is no place in the world I would rather be.   I am thankful for being able to homeschool my children.  We have so much fun learning together. 

I am thankful for the friends that God has put in my life over the past year.  I had been praying for years for good friends and now I have so many that I don’t have enough time in the week to spend the time with each of them that I would like.  I am grateful for God answering that prayer at just the right time!  Those friends have been there through some rough times in the past year.  Thank you gals!

I am thankful for my Mom who decided 32 years ago to give birth despite only being a child herself.  She could have easily chosen abortion but instead chose the harder road of having a child.  Her love and sacrifice are such an inspiration to me as a Mom!

I am thankful for the relationship that I have with my Daddy.  A year ago, he was only given a couple of weeks to live and now he is doing so well!  I am grateful for his health.  I am grateful for our new relationship.  Tomorrow I will for the first time spend Thanksgiving with him.  I am so excited to get to know him as my Daddy. 

I am thankful for becoming a Christian a little over 14 years ago.  I can’t imagine life without God.  I can’t imagine where I would be today if he wouldn’t have plucked me out of the world early on in my freshman year in college.  I can’t imagine how much of a mess of things I would have made without Him there beside me as a loving and guiding hand. 

I hope you have a Thankful Thanksgiving!
