Late Thanks

I know Thanksgiving has already passed.
But it's always a good time to give thanks, right?!


I have been given an incredible family--my parents and my two awesome siblings--we had a blast of a childhood together!
For that, I am thankful.

I have been given a wonderful husband. He's my best friend. He loves me regardless of my many flaws.
For that, I am thankful.

I have been given a beautiful son. I now know how much my parents must love me. For that, I am thankful.

I have been given my dream job. Staying at home with Ethan, trying to keep the house in working order--it's the job I've hoped and prayed for my whole life!
For that, I am thankful.

I have loving in-laws. We have a great relationship.
For that, I am thankful.

I have a cool and relaxing home in the summer and a warm and cozy home in the winter.
For that I am thankful.

I have dishes to wash, clothes to clean, old friends to cherish, new friends to enjoy, a husband to love and respect, a baby to nurture, siblings to reminisce with, parents to listen to and grandparents to take care of.
For all these, I am thankful.

I know I'm leaving out soooooo much. I've often wondered how I could EVER count my blessings and "name them one by one", as the song suggests. It would take an eternity. Oh!! That reminds me...
I have a SAVIOR who died for me. Who lives for me. Who hears me, loves me, forgives me. I have a home in heaven prepared for me.
I am indescribably thankful for all these.

And most recently, the inspiration behind this "Late Thanks" post, my sister had a bit of a health scare, and I was terrified about the results we could possibly get. But GOD IS FAITHFUL. My sister is just fine, and the test came back negative.
For that, I am sooo thankful!!

Now, how about some pictures?
Here are just a few taken throughout Thanksgiving Day. It was a great time of family, fun, food and fellowship! We went to Bob's parents' first, and then in the evening we went over to my parents'! I'm so grateful both sets of parents live close by!

Now it's time for Christmas!!
I'm SUPER excited!!
We've got the decorations out and the tree up, we just need to decorate it!
I'll show pics soon!

    We're doing well, thanks for the comment. I have been super busy though. Working full-time and going to school online has been tough. I know there's a reason I'm on this path now though and I'm content. I do have to say that I am super excited for the day when I can stay at home and raise our children, God willing! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
