Happy Thanksgiving

I cleaned my house yesterday… mostly. And was finally able to take some pictures of the Thanksgiving decor in our home.

Thanksgiving can be a hectic day, to say the least. But I want to encourage each of you to take a moment to truly be thankful for all of the blessings in your life. Then to thank our Savior for his sacrifice and for everything he has given us.

Hug your family, eat some yummy food, and enjoy the fellowship of those around you!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

I hope that all of you are lucky enough to be spending the day today with family, friends and people that you love!

I have never participated in doing the daily things that I am thankful for on Facebook. I think that it is a wonderful idea, but to be honest… I just lack the time and commitment to actually keep up with it daily đŸ™‚

So I want to take a little time to tell you what I am Thankful for….

I am thankful for my parents and the loving, Christian household I was raised in.

I am thankful for my extended family like my grandparents, aunts/uncles, cousins, etc. who have always been a blessing in my life.

I am thankful for my in-laws who treat my as their own daughter.

I am thankful for my siblings and how close we have become the past few years.

I am thankful for my job. Both for the income it brings as well as the flexibility I have.

I am thankful for Geoff’s job and the many opportunities that he has been given.

I am thankful for our home and the comforts that we so easily take for granted.

I am thankful for our country and the freedoms we enjoy.

I am thankful for my faith in our Savior and the strength He gives me.

I am incredibly thankful for my sweet little boy, Christopher. He makes me want to be the best of myself and brings me SO much joy!

Last, I am thankful for my husband. Without him, so many of the things above would not be possible. He is a loving and caring man and a wonderful father. Marriage is not always easy, but I am so thankful to be married to my best friend and the love of my life. I love you, Geoff.

Take some time today to thank our Lord for all of the blessings in your life!
