30 Days of Thankfulness- Catch up

I obviously suck at blogging daily. Today I am thankful for so much! I am so thankful for my children. They are the most amazing things in my life next to my husband. Jimmy is so smart. He reads and spells well above grade level. He is great at math. He is so logical. I am constantly amazed by the things  he says. Bianca is the sweetest girl ever. She loves to cuddle and hug us. She also loves to draw pictures and is always making me new artwork. She loves to smile and make people laugh.

I am also thankful for my extended family. My MIL is wonderful. She loves me and treats me as her own daughter. After hearing some horror stories I consider myself extremely lucky to have her. I am thankful for my aunt. She is always there to support me and give me encouragement. I can turn to her with any problem and she will understand. I am also thankful for my cousin. Growing up we were more like sisters than cousins and we still are. I don't talk to her as much as I used to but when we talk it is for hours and it is like we never missed a day of talking.

I am thankful for my amazing friends Taryn and Jessica. We met through the school and it is great to have close friends with kids close in age to my own. Taryn has helped kick my butt into better shape. Her encouragement is a lot of the reason why I was able to run the 5k in just over 33 minutes. Jessica has been amazing when it comes to helping out with events. I can volunteer her for anything and she steps up to the plate in an amazing way. Both Taryn and Jessica are great listeners and are always there when I need to vent.

30 Days of Thankfulness- Day Two

I am thankful for my husband. I may no always express it the best way but I am amazingly thankful for my husband. We have had some difficult times and have come very close to divorce more than once. I am so thankful we decided to work on our marriage instead of throwing it out. He is my rock and is always there when I need him. We fight and have our issues but he has my back and I have his! I cannot imagine my life without him. I love you so much honey! You are the center of my world and I don't tell you that enough.

30 Days of Thankfulness- Day One

I am going to commit to one blog a day for the month of November to express my thankfulness. I, like many others, often get distracted by what I don't have or what is going wrong. I am going to try to take a few minutes to focus on all the things going right.

So for day one I am thankful for God's grace. Without it I would be lost and floundering. God has shown me grace when I have been at my lowest points. Whenever I start to doubt or wallow in self-pity I look at all the blessings God has given me and the grace he has extended to me. I am trying to practice extending that grace to others.
