What I'm Thankful For...

I am completely overwhelmed by the gratefulness that I feel in my heart for all that I am blessed with.  It's an incredibly strong feeling that I experience everyday.  I have so much to be thankful for.  And honestly, I can't comprehend why I have been so blessed when I am so undeserving of it.  But our God is so awesome, and I thank Him 100% for the beautiful life I have been blessed with.  It's impossible for me to list all that I'm grateful for, but today I wanted to share just a glimpse of it...

I am thankful for God.
That He sent His one and only son, Jesus,
to die on the cross for our sins.
That He is in complete control.
That if we believe and trust in Him,
we have nothing to worry about.

I am thankful for my family.
For my parents that raised me to be who I am today.
Who I have been able to stay so close to into adulthood,
to be friends with them.
And who willingly watch our children for us to go to work.
For my sister who is one of my very best friends.
For my in-laws, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins.
For all who have been supportive.

I am thankful for my husband.
That we met at such a young age,
fell in love and have had so many beautiful years together.
That he has devoted his life to me and our children.
That he treats me like a princess,
how so many women only dream of being treated.
That he tells me loves me throughout the day everyday,
and that I know he means it with all his heart.
That he has taught me so much about life.
About the importance of family, 
and how to worry less about the small things.
That he is a better Daddy to our girls than I could ever ask for.
That we are best friends.
That we still get excited to see each other everyday,
and that we look forward to spending the rest of our lives together.

I am thankful for both of my daughters.
For showing me a kind of love that I never knew existed.
For loving me unconditionally.
For being the center of our world.

I am thankful that I have been blessed with the ability to have two children.
That they are healthy.
That being a parent to them is so rewarding,
the best gift in the world.

I am thankful for my job.
The flexibility that it has.
The financial support it provides for my family.
But that it still allows me to be a mom first.
That I get to work with my mom everyday.
And that my other co-workers are family to me.

I am thankful for my health.
My husbands health.
My home. My car.
My faith. My freedom.

And thankful for the little things.
Like Keira's random "I love you Momma"s.
The sweet hugs, the snuggling, the kisses that I get from my girls.
The sweet texts my husband sends me to remind me how much he loves me.
The amount of time that we get to spend with all of our family
because we are blessed to all live so close.

I am thankful that I am who I am.
I may be shy and reserved and often feel like I'm different.
I may not have many friends.
And I may not have an impact on many people, if any.
But I know that God has put me here,
made me who I am,
and He has me exactly where He wants me for some purpose.
For His purpose.

I am thankful that I can see the big picture.
That I know that everything happens for a reason.
That I have less worry than I ever have because of this.
That I realize that this life is simply a brief passing through to our eternal life.
A journey preparing us for Heaven.
A chance to build our character and our relationship with Jesus Christ.

I am thankful for my morals and beliefs.
For my outlook on life and beyond.
Thankful that faithfamily, and love are the absolute most important things to me.

Life is not perfect.  In sharing this, I don't want to portray that we live a perfect life.
Living imperfectly is what life is all about.  It's how we learn and grow.
But I think it's important to high-light the good.  And appreciate it.
We choose to high-light what matters to us.  We try have a positive outlook on life and try to look at the big picture. To embrace the good and most importantly, be grateful for all that what we have been blessed with.

I hope you can, in some way, be inspired to do the same. 

To reflect on all your blessings and be grateful.
