It's the week of Thanksgiving and I always love to remind myself of those things/people that I am thankful for. Here are the top 10 in no particular order.

  1. My girls. I love having two girls. It is truly a delight and a joy to be with them, watch them grow, and listen to their silly little antics.
  2. For health. We are all healthy. No major illness or disease. I feel very fortunate to, at this moment, be free from any physical pain in my family.
  3. A home. Whenever it rains I always stop to give thanks to the Lord for a roof over our heads. I am thankful our heat works and my family is warm.
  4. My husband. He is a support, help, and encourager. He knows all my crazy quirks and works right along with them. He is patient with me and kind in his words.
  5. My friends. I have no idea where I would be without my friends. They are my sounding board, my encouragement, and they spur me on to be a better person and friend. I am so blessed to have so many in all sorts of places.
  6. A small job that I love. I love cooking for the family I currently cook for. We are a great fit. It is truly a joy for me to go into their home every other week and cook for them. I enjoy the time I take to prepare, plan, shop, and of course, cook. The extra cash is a bonus as well :)
  7. My extended family. (mom, dad, sister, brother, etc...) They have helped to shape me, teach me, guide me, and are always a welcome site when we return home for the holiday's.
  8. That Christmas is coming. It's my favorite time of the year and we are going to enjoy some decorating before head to Nana's.
  9. Creativity. I feel like the Lord has blessed me with a creative spirit. This comes out not only in crafts but discipline, decorating, deals, and everyday situations.
  10. My relationship with the Lord. I am learning about what it means to serve God and be in a relationship as the daughter of the one true God. I know that without Him all the above would not be possible. All thanks and glory be to God.

Happy Thanksgiving week! Enjoy your families, friends, and the spirit of the season.
