Well as it is officially Thanksgiving I decided that a post giving thanks would be appropriate!! This year seems to be going much faster than anticipated and it also seems that the older I get I find myself saying that EVERY YEAR! I have much to be appreciative for and no where near the words to express it but I will try.

I am blessed and grateful for my Husband and his job, grateful that he has a job in these slow times and blessed that he works so hard for our family. He is good to me and loves me and lifts me up when holding the world up seems too heavy.

Alexis, she is such a great girl. Her heart is pure gold and would defend her entire family to the death if needed! I love watching how doing what's right comes very instinctively for her, I am grateful for that and hope that it will stay with her always!

Grace, aww my Grace, yes that little girl has me totally amazed by her! I am grateful for her humor and her sweet singing. She brings added spice to our family and I am so proud to be her Mom.

James, my little man, he melts my heart with that smile of his. I am grateful for his patience and quiet presence, he brings a great deal of peace to our family. He waited a long time to come to our family and the Lords timing, as always, was impeccable!!

I am grateful for the county we live in, regardless of who might be elected to office (still working through that). We do have so many freedoms and even more men and women who are willing to fight for them.

I am grateful for the gospel and all that it allows me to understand and to know that the things I don't understand can be lived in faith.

I am grateful for all my extended family, Mom, Dad, Janna, Alyssa, Jack, Emily, Chet, Dave, Amy, Carli, Carson, Ethan, (my side) & Bonnie, Mark, Danny, Rachel, Sara, Anna, Will and baby Will (Jimmy's side). Of course there are a million other family members that I feel grateful for as well but that list is really long.

Last but not least I feel so grateful for this blogging world, for those that allow me to know you better and for those that think I am worth their time to read about me and get to know me. I hope you all have a wonderful Turkey Day, LOVE TO YOU!!

Great post! I always think about doing a thankful post, but in my head it sounds too mushy or preachy, but when I read everyone elses it never sounds that way to me. Maybe I need to just suck it up and do it :)
