I am Thankful.

I am thankful that I get to wake up to these faces.

I am thankful for laughter and silliness.

I am thankful for the love of a wonderful man.

I'm even thankful for the hardships and struggles in our relationship that have made us rock solid.

I am thankful for God's love and work in my life - making me a better person and a better mama.  I'm thankful that one talk with Him makes me feel like I can do anything.

I am thankful for the support of my family, especially my siblings.  There's no greater feeling than knowing that I can do anything and still have a giant support system.

I am thankful for encouragement from positive friends (including the incredible friendships I've formed this year) and the means to go back to school.

I'm thankful for my job and the kindness of my boss who, I believe, genuinely wants good things for me.

I am thankful that Brittany, Matt, Maggie, and Brandon (in the womb!) are going to make their family official!  Happy engagement!  We love you so much and I always knew you guys would be just fine.

I'm thankful for this blog and the opportunities that it will bring for me to share my heart and passions with others; I'm thankful to those of you who read on a regular basis and share some of the kindest words ever.
