I am thankful for…

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to take a few minutes today to list some of the things that I am thankful for.  I am thankful for…

  • salvation
  • freedom
  • my amazing husband
  • my wonderful families – my family by birth and my family by marriage
  • fantastic friends
  • the great church families I’ve been a part of in all the various places I’ve lived
  • Michael’s new job
  • the fact that I’ve been getting to travel with Michael recently
  • being *this close* to finished with my masters degree (a few “housekeeping” things left for this semester, then one class left in the spring!)
  • my health
  • a roof over my head, food on my table, heat, and other basic amenities that so many go without
  • my Crockpot and KitchenAid mixer that make cooking healthy meals so much easier
  • the new mop that has redefined how I feel about mopping (do you have one yet?  Ask Santa!)
  • still having all four of my grandparents
  • spinning and Zumba
  • crafting
  • my iPhone
  • peanut butter
  • healthy pregnancies and babies for my friends who are pregnant or have recently had babies
  • this blog
  • the fabulous feasts we will eat today and Sunday
  • getting to see family this weekend that we don’t get to see often
  • variety
  • Hulu
  • our mattress
  • libraries and books
  • the ability to see, smell, taste, hear, and feel the world around me
  • Sharpies
  • chapstick

Obviously this is not an exhaustive list.  I will never be able to express all the things I am thankful for as God has so richly blessed us.  These are just the first things that came to mind.

I hope you have a wonderful day today with your loved ones.  Happy Thanksgiving!
