Thankful!

I look back over this past year and find myself very thankful for so much!! Today I asked myself what I was MOST thankful for and I knew it was for JESUS!! Jesus set us free by dying on the cross and allowing us to have the opportunity to spend eternity in heaven!!

I am thankful for the struggles in my life! I know that sounds weird but I am!! Those struggles have helped me develop this amazing relationship with God. One that I might not have right now without those bumpy times.

I am thankful for my family! My loving, amazing, sweet husband! He is such a great daddy!! He is involved in everything with Noah from diapers to bathing to feeding to playing! He is a hands on daddy that loves me and his son!

I am thankful for Noah!!!!! As I rocked him to sleep for his nap today I looked down at his precious face. How long his eyelashes were and the way his lips puckered out as he was snoozing away.  Tears came rolling down my cheeks as I looked up at God and thanked him for my son!! I had this miracle all wrapped up in my arms and I was humbled and in awe at what God has done for me.

I am thankful for my parents! They are always there to pick me up when I fall down and always ready to help me find my way when I get lost. They planted the seed to love the Lord and for that I am very thankful!!! I am thankful for my in laws!!

I am blessed to have in laws that I adore and really when I think of them I don't think of them as in laws at all, but simply my family!! And I am thankful that they love me the same way too!

I am thankful for my brothers and sisters! My sisters and brothers by birth and my sisters and brothers by marriage and my sister by choice..hehe (MB)! These are the ppl that help me guard my heart and are constantly putting joy in my life!

I am thankful for my friends! The ones that listen to me when I vent and laugh with me when I am silly! I can be myself around my family and friends and I am thankful for that!!

I know I could go on and on because I have so much to be thankful for: blogger sisters, my health, my freedom, food on the table, a roof over my head, clothes on my back.....for everything!!! Thank you Lord from which all blessings flow!! Thank You!!!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to All!!
What are you thankful for??
