As I sit here and reflect back over the past year, I have so much for which I can be thankful.
*I have an amazing husband who loves God, loves me, and loves his kids.
*I have 5 beautiful babies that drive me absolutely insane, refuse to sleep through the night, and cause all sorts of trouble, but they are MY kids, and they are 5 of the biggest blessings in my life. I’d be lost without them.
*I have an amazing family – both right next door and scattered across the country. I know that I can go to any of them any time I need them.
*I have made some wonderful friends. I have people that I can call at 3 o’clock in the morning, and they would hop out of bed and come over if I needed them. I’ve never had that before, and I really like it. (Not that I’m calling them at 3am, mind you, I just know I could.)
*I’ve got an amazing church family. People who love the Lord and it just shines right through them. They are an encouragement and a blessing every time I walk through those doors.
*I’ve got the assurance that I know where I’m going when I die. After years of pretending and wearing a mask, I finally gave it all over to Him and it feels SO good.
Yep. I’m one lucky girl. I will spend today with my family. I couldn’t be happier.
And to make you smile, here’s a Thanksgiving Hello from my little turkeys (ahem) boys:
May God bless each one of you today and every day. May His blessings surround you as you spend today with your family!
