Give Thanks

 Feeling Thankful is a choice.

With everything that has gone on in the last few weeks, I have not been feeling very thankful, so this morning I decided to write out EVERYTHING I was thankful for. This way, when I am not feeling thankful,I can look back at my list and remember that no matter where I am, I have a reason to be thankful.

I am thankful for......

My Family- I truly have the best family ever. a beautiful daughter who makes my heart smile, and a hubby who loves me and puts up with my craziness! I am also blessed with 2 sisters and their families ( I have 5 nieces, and 2 nephews), and I have had the Best parents ever. Mom is still with us and for that I am extremely thankful, and my awesome Daddy has left this world, for his heavenly home.

My friends- The last few years I have been praying that God would send me friends, not just people I like, but people I love and want to spend time with.  He answered that prayer, and these friends  have been here for me over the past few weeks, when my world has been falling apart, and I will be forever thankful for their encouragement and prayers, crazy pictures, and phone calls. Love these ladies :)

My God- no matter where I am, He is there waiting for me!

My job- It allows me to be a stay at home homeschooling mama

My home- It may not be "ours" but I love it, and the neighborhood its in.

Our busted up car- lol I'm thankful it works and gets us from place to place.

Amazon-  I LOVE this website and I love that I can order stuff and not have to get out and face the crowds after a long day!

Essential Oils- they help keep my family healthy and keep this mama stress free and sane:) which makes everyone happy!

Books- I LOVE books, I love reading them to Olivia, I LOVE escaping to a quiet room and stepping into a different world with each new book I read. reading a good book brings me joy!

These are just a few things on my ever growing thankful list...just a reminder that I can be thankful in every season of my life, even the broken one we are in now.
