I am thankful...

*for a God who loves me enough to bring about HIS plans for my life and not my own
*for my husband and the way that he loves me...even when I'm ill (that's what he tells me)
*for my parents who love each other and enjoy each other in a way that I think is rare
*for Bradley's parents who are so good to us and babysit Molly
*for my brother who makes me laugh...a lot
*for Garret and the good heart he has
*for our extended families and time we get to spend with them
*for jobs at a school we enjoy so much
*for Molly who makes can make us furious and make us laugh all in a matter of minutes
*for kids in my class who told me yesterday when we cooked pancakes that I was like Paul Dean and Mr. Food
*for laughter
*for the orange and yellow tree I can see through the french doors as I type this
*for this house that we enjoy so much
*for neighbors who look out for us
*for health and happiness

I am so thankful for all God has blessed me with. There are things in life that didn't appear to be blessings at times, but I've grown to see that God knew exactly what He was doing. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the life God has given us.

May all the good things in life be yours in abundance during this Thanksgiving season.

  1. I could have never imagined all the wonderful blessings that God had in store for both of us. Has it really been seven years? That really makes me feel old.... I keep saying this, but we really need to get together! Maybe one day during Christmas break? Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!!

  2. Hi Hope!

    Enjoyed reading your blog. It is such a great place to remember all those special moments.
