Thankful

I am thankful for
1. Garth. My soul mate, best friend, Scrabble partner, biggest fan, comedian, and cuddle buddy. I thank God everyday for you, sweet husband of mine!!
2. Mom & Dad. They are my role models, friends, mentors, encouragers and I would not be who I am today without their love, support and guidance.
3. Brothers. I am so thankful to have wonderful brothers who make me laugh really hard and who I enjoy hanging out with.
4. In-laws. I am so blessed to have a whole new family! I am thankful for my mother-in-law, and sister-in-laws who have accepted me as family and love me. I admire, respect and adore these amazing women!
5. Friends. Thank you for always being there for me, listening to me vent, offering advice, and praying for me when I needed it most. Life would be dull without you guys!
6. Health. I will never take for granted the fact that I can run, walk and breathe.
7. Money in the bank. In this bleak economy, I am thankful Garth and I are savers.
8. Job. So thankful I enjoy what I do...and that I have a job.
9. Roof over our heads. And I love our little home!
10. Church. Thankful I can worship the great big God I serve freely in this country.
11. The opportunity to visit my grandparents in Florida for Thanksgiving.
12. My car. Did you know only 10% of the people in the world own a car?
13. Troops. Thank you for all you do and the sacrifices you make for this country.
14. Small group. What an amazing group of people I am learning from.
15. New apartment! So thankful God provided a new home for us so quickly. We move in at the end of Dec and images of paint shades and nightstands dance in my head!
16. My blog. I have enjoyed writing and documenting our lives. But most of all, I have loved meeting all of you who read it! You encourage me, inspire me, and I always look forward to your comments and reading your blogs!



Happy Thanksgiving!!! I'm off to Florida to visit the grandparents. Have a wonderful holiday and I'll catch ya'll on Monday! God bless.
