A Thankful Heart

Happy Thanksgiving ya’ll! As I sit here typing I am overcome with extreme gratitude. What a better way to celebrate the holiday than by thinking of the oh so many things to be thankful for? These are just a few of the things as there is so much to be thankful for, even in the challenging times, there is just so much.

I am thankful for my Lord and savior Jesus Christ without whom any of these blessings wouldn’t be possible.

I am thankful for my husband- the hardworking, loving, genuine, passionate, compassionate man that he is. He leads our home and brings us closer to Christ and I can’t express enough in words how much he means to us.

I am thankful for our energetic, humorous, loving little man Matthew. To be his mama has been one of life’s greatest joys.

I am thankful for our little dog Oski who brings such fun to our family (and she cleans the floors!!).

I am thankful for our big, beautiful, crazy family.

I am thankful for our incredible friends both old and new. I am thankful for the opportunity to do life with them.

I am thankful for our home. For the memories that we’ve shared and for the memories to come.

I am thankful for the food that we have and the resources that we have  to buy food, water, gas, etcetera.

I am thankful for my glasses and my contacts that help me see the world around me.

I am thankful to live in America and to have the freedom that I do.

I am thankful to the men and women who serve our country daily be it military, police, firefighters, etcetera. Thank you all for your service and sacrifices.

I am certain there’s much more that could go on this list…it would take me hours. Friends I want to encourage you to just take a moment and think about the things you’re grateful for.  Just pause and take it all in. It’s often that we just overlook all that we have and what a beautiful chance to just be thankful. Happy Thanksgiving friends <3
