Thankful

Things I'm thankful for...

I am thankful for Jesus and for the sacrifice he made for me on the cross. I am thankful for his love, his mercy, his grace. Thankful that he desires a relationship with me and saved me from my sins. I am so undeserving every. single. day.

I am thankful for my little man, Noah. I love him more than words can express. He makes me so proud every single day, every single moment. I love watching him grow and learn new things. I am thankful for his sweet little giggles and thankful for each hug and kiss.

I am thankful at this point in our lives I am able to stay home with Noah. I feel so very blessed.

I am thankful for Josh. He is my best friend, my love, my provider, my blog editor and designer. He is a hard worker and never complains about the load he carries. I am so thankful for the relationship he has with Noah. He is an amazing father and husband.

I am thankful for our apartment. Thankful for the warm beds we sleep in at night. I am thankful for all the comforts we have.

I am thankful for a dependable car and Josh's {kinda} dependable Jeep.

I am thankful for God's provision for our family. Moving to the big city from Amarillo a year and a half ago was not easy. At all. But, God has abundantly provided for our every need and for that I am thankful.

I am thankful for our church family. They have been our support; they have loves and accepted our family. We are so thankful for their friendship. God is good.

I am thankful for Mimi, Granddad, Grammy, and Papa and the amazing grandparents they are to Noah. He will one day realize how blessed he is. I am so thankful for their love and involvement in Noah's life.

I am thankful for my fat little pug, Einstein. As much as he annoys me with his incessant barking and shedding, I can't imagine our lives without him. He is the sweetest, loving, most patient dog ever. He is family and we love him so very much.

I am so very thankful for the friendship I have with Laura. She is such a blessing in my life and I love how we've grown closer over the past year.

I am thankful for Dr. Pepper. There I said it. It's true.

I am thankful for my brothers and sisters and for the good relationship I have with them. I love them all very much.

I am thankful for all of my family near and far.

I am thankful for the trip Josh and I were able to take to Mexico a few weeks ago. It was so refreshing and we came back even closer. It was an amazing trip.

I am thankful for this blog where I can share our life with you. I am thankful I have found an outlet to express myself. I am thankful for each one of you who spend a little bit of your day keeping up with our blog. I am thankful for the friendships I've developed over this past year through blogging.

I am thankful for my camera and a way to capture our everyday life. I am thankful for the interest I've found in photography, and I look forward to seeing where it takes me in the next year or two.

I am thankful for family time. There is nothing better than spending time with my two boys... and of course Einstein too.

I am thankful for date nights.

I am thankful for the part time job I have in the nursery at the hospital and for all the wonderful co-workers I have. I can honestly say I get along with everyone I work with {even the doctors!}. North Hills really is a great place to work.

I am thankful for health insurance.

I am thankful for a good pediatrician we can trust and know in confidence she has Noah's best interest in mind.

I am thankful for my iPhone. I'd be lost without it. :)

I am so thankful for air conditioning during the hot, hot summers we have here in Fort Worth.

I am thankful for good health.

I am thankful for my dishwasher, washing machine, and dryer. We so often take those things for granted. They sure make life a lot easier.

I am thankful for days Josh watches Noah in the morning so I can sleep in. Doesn't happen very often, but when it does it is wonderful!!

I am thankful for so many things. Thank you Lord for all the blessings you pour out on our lives.

What are you thankful for? I would love to hear.

Hope each of you have a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving! Safe travels everyone!
