Gosh, ya'll, do you ever really think about how blessed we are to be living in this nation? It's really overwhelming -
We're free to worship.
Free to school our children how we choose.
Free to blog. :)
But that's not all I'm thankful for - nosireeee bob!
I'm so thankful for my family. Had either my husband or I chosen the wrong path this year, my family probably wouldn't be intact today. By the grace of our God, we're still here. And, aside from some financial difficulties, we're blissfully happy!
I'm thankful for the opportunity to help bring some moolah into our home. I watch a friend's baby 3x a week and that little bit of cash has really helped carry us through some tough weeks! One downside of this - I've seen that I can handle 4 kiddos, (2 of which are 1 and under), so I'm struggling with wanting to go for #4! :)
Speaking of which, I'm thankful I can have 4 children if I so choose.
I'm thankful for farmer and hunter friends who think of us when they are overflowing in cow and deer meat.
I'm thankful for church families, past and present, who love us unconditionally. Who seek to meet our needs. Who long to minister to us.
And, on a serious note, I'm thankful for Key Lime Pie and Caramel Creme flavored yogurts. They're seriously da bomb, ya'll!
For more thankfulness, go see Iris at Grace Alone - you'll be glad you did!
