I am thankful for so many things. First my Savior, Jesus Christ. Without Him, I would be nothing. I am thankful He died for me when I do not deserve it. He saves me... every single day. Then I am thankful for my family. People say that a lot, but I don't know if a lot of people give the reasons they are thankful for their family. Matt is my other rock. He keeps me grounded. He always gives me a practical and logical answer - which I am thankful is usually the 'non-stressful' answer. I can see where Mati Claire comes from. He sees things differently than I do and for that I am so thankful. And he still makes me laugh. My kids do too. I am thankful for them. They teach me way more than I ever expected. They have taught me to be more patient. And to see things through their eyes is absolutely amazing. I am thankful for every single minute with them.
I am thankful for a roof over my head. I've had one of those months where I've been praying for a rainy day to stay inside and do nothing. A day where I didn't have to try to cover these spots up...or pretend I don't itch from head to toe. God blessed us with rain today! And we stayed in and decorated the Christmas tree. Tried to ignore my 2 little one's being Scrooges, and forced the Christmas spirit upon them. I couldn't even get mad at Mattox when he broke ornaments, because I am thankful for the time we had together today.
I am thankful for my parents and sister. They are still teaching me and helping me. Whether its a cooking question, or a parenting question, or a 'how-do-i-fix-this' question - they always help me. And they are always there for me.
The list goes on and on.... but I'll cut it off there. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! My 2 turkeys have slept late every morning this week so they will learn to be thankful for holiday breaks from school eventually.
