Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is here!! I love Thanksgiving because it is that holiday that makes you stop and really think about all that you have to be thankful for. I wish I didn't need a holiday to remind me, but like most people sometimes I get caught up in life and forget to thank God for all that He has blessed me with. This past year has been absolutely amazing and I have some much to be thankful for.

I continue to be thankful for my wonderful husband. He puts up with all my "crazy" and loves me. We have had our share of ups and downs, and we are still going strong. I wouldn't want to do this life with anyone but him. And, he is a pretty awesome daddy!

My biggest blessing this year was Will. Who knew that a 6 pound, 3 ounces bundle of love could completely rock my world? I thank God everyday for allowing me the opportunity to be his mother!

I am so thankful for my parents, brother, and extended family. They have been so gracious this year with their love and time. They have been absolutely amazing by helping me and their dedication to Will. I don't know what I would do without their support.

Also, I am thankful for Clay's family. They treat me as one of their own, and they love my little boy. I couldn't ask for better in-law's.

I am thankful for my job. It has provided for our family this year. In a time where many people do not have work, I am grateful for the stability that my job offers. We have walked through a time of uncertainty with Clay's job in years past, and I am glad that we currently do not have to worry about those situations.

I am so thankful for my friends who love and encourage me.

I am grateful to have a wonderful church family. They have loved my family and supported on this jouney to become a family of three. I am glad that we get to work with our youth group and get the opportunity to be a part of their lives.

Of course, there is so much more that I am thankful for, and I could write forever. This year has been crazy and wonderful. It has opened my eyes to how great my life is and how lucky I am to be living it. I want to be intentional about being thankful to the One who has blessed me.

"Be joyful always; Pray continually; Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 
1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
