I am Thankful!

Tis the season to reflect upon our many blessings! My mind is coffee deprived and slowly starting to awake on this chilly morning, but it’s always a good habit to get in each morning and Thank God for His blessings…….. big, small, frivolous, silly, life changing, or encouraging.

Thank Him!

I am thankful for:
Friends who have been such a HUGE blessing to our family in many ways.  It’s the little things that so many of you don’t see.  Friends bringing meals, sending an email or card our way, an occasional gift card to eat out, running to the store for me, helping to get my van headlight fixed……and the list goes on.  So thankful for so many of you! 🙂

Paisely our dog!!  She is a riot and brings lots of needed fun to our house!

My parents, they are about to celebrate 50 years of marriage!!!  That is a milestone to be thankful for!

Um….yea, just had to stick this in my list somewhere…….I have been quite addicted to Burger King’s Sweet Potato fries lately.  Love ’em!   It started this summer with all our baseball travels, I tried them and have been hooked ever since!

Tyler signing his National Letter of Intent to play baseball at Division 1 Liberty University next Fall! Such a joyous milestone!

Seeing Tyler and Madi during the school day!  I am so thankful that I can teach at their school.  Here is Tyler going through the lunch line with one of my students.  I love being there for this kind of thing and I am thankful for that!

Moments……yes Moments.  The days may be long, but there are those special moments God sends our way each day to cherish and be reminded to be thankful! Thank you God for memorable moments through out my day.

My Keurig!

Curt’s sense of humor…..He has lost so much, but still retains that smirk and fun sense of humor.

My kids, they make me laugh!!!!

Our new TV ( and thanks to our friend who helped to mount it for us!!!).  It gives Curt something to do during those down times. He still enjoys watching Sports Center and anything sports related.  He loves reclining in this cozy chair with the dog and watching TV.

Exercise!  I love getting to our local rec when I can or out for a power walk.  It clears my mind, gives me time to pray and gives that extra energy boost I need!

My iPhone, I would be lost with out it

~Thankfulness takes the sting out of adversity.~

…..ALWAYS giving thanks to God the Father for everything…….

Ephesians 5:20

I see no mention of, if your circumstances suck (always been a “say it like it is” kind of person) stop giving thanks.  No the word is ALWAYS.  And despite not always feeling like giving Thanks, and not always feeling real Thankful. 

I give Thanks, for I am blessed in SO many ways.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone may you enjoy the many blessings from big to small that God brings our way each day.
