A Thankful Heart

Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year. It's a time dedicated to family and eating... what could be better?? More than anything this is a great time to stop and look at all the blessings in my life. I feel like the Lord just continues to work in my life and has given me so much.

Things I am thankful for (some more serious than others):

  • My husband- He is so patient with me and so incredibly loving. I couldn't ask for a better partner in life and I can't wait to see him as a dad one day!
  • The marriage Bible study we just finished... so good!
  • My family- I am so blessed to not only have a supportive family but a super fun family too! I love hanging out with my parents and I always have a blast with them. I'm so lucky to have parents that were incredible role models and I strive to be like both of them each day. 
  • Working with Godly and encouraging woman
  • My friends- Such uplifting and kind people! I am so grateful for the many laughs, great conversations,  and even the tears shared together this year. I'm beyond blessed!
  • Comfy, fuzzy sock because they rock in the winter!
  • White Christmas lights
  • Friends who live in other states but who make an effort to stay in touch. It means so much to me!
  • My crazy dogs who crack me up every day with their wild antics! 
  • The caramel brûlée lattes from Starbucks... mmm!
  • Catching up with friends like it hasn't been months since we've seen each other :)
  • Sleeping in until 8:00 on Saturdays! Woohoo!
  • Finally boots and sweater weather in San Diego
  • A husband who doesn't mind my obsession with Christmas music, or shopping, or makeup, or buying stickers for my planner, or my need for NO clutter... lol He puts up with a lot!
  • The sweet kiddos in my class who write me letters and draw me the cutest pictures
  • New friendships
  • Having our house filled with Christmas cheer already! I love having our tree up early!
  • Living close to (some of) Mark's family. The Woosters take such good care of us!
  • Gaining new cousins when I married Mark who are so sweet to me!
  • Taking new (and scary) steps with my blog
  • My friends and family who read every single post regardless of what it's about. I treasure you!
  • New cookbooks and recipes to try so I don't get bored with cooking :) And my husband as my taste-tester
  • New members joining our family :)
  • Orange Theory Fitness and all the great coaches there
  • Our military and all the men and woman who selflessly serve our great country
  • The fact that I live in the U.S. and the freedoms that we have
  • And most importantly... God. I am so grateful to be saved by His grace. 
I'm praying that you all have a blessed Thanksgiving and that you're surrounded by the ones you love!
