Thanksgiving Thankfulness

Thanksgiving is here!  I am glad this day rolls around every year to remind me to count my blessings.  I am a lucky girl who leads a life rich and abundant in good things.  Bron likes to remind me of just how spoiled I am.  However, there is a part of me that is scared to count my blessings because those things can change so fast!  Even so, when things get tiresome, problematic, and even a little dicey, I know I have a Heavenly Father who loves me (and you too) very much.

Some things {BIG and small} I am thankful for:

An attractive, hard-working husband who loves me unconditionally.  I am grateful for little moments of affection and tenderness between us.  I love it when he wraps his arms around me or whispers sweet little things in my ear.  I never doubt he loves me.

A busy and happy little boy

Warm meals, warm socks, warm coats and warm blankets.

Colorful leaves and pumpkins.

Pie for dessert. 
(Okay, food in general.)

My health and the health of my family.

True friends. 
{these gals and these guys and many more}

{these folks and these folks and these folks}


Joy and peace in my life.

Late night talks with my hubby.

Running and exercising.

{Cute} shoes and dresses to go with them.

A camera, computer, and the internet.

The way Jed smiles and laughs.

To be at home and witness my baby grow.



Swimming at the beach on a hot summer day.

Beautiful pictures.


Hot showers.

Marrying a man who is my best friend and makes me laugh.

Travel and vacation adventures.

Eating out.
(Is there a food theme going on?)

A beautiful home to live in complete with everything a woman, wife, and mother could possibly need.  That gas stove rocks.  So does our new den.

Cell phones and texting and keeping in touch.

Always having milk in Jed's sippy and the way he guzzles it.

Living closer to family.  


Playing my violin.

A good book.

Always having enough + some.

I have plenty of reasons to be happy!  And I am. very. happy.  Happy Thanksgiving!!!
