Still thankful

Even though Thanksgiving is officially over, this time of year really gets me thinking about all the things I am thankful for.

- My savior who died so I might live

-A wonderful husband who makes me laugh, is my best friend, always puts my needs or wants above his and has a heart for adoption

- A wonderful family who I really LOVE to spend time with

- An awesome in-law family who has always treated me with one of the family.

-Adoption!!!!

-A house full of stuff we do not need

-A church family who loves us

-A job

-Our health

-The fact that I do not have to worry about if I will eat tonight

-Christmas!

-Freedom

-Rainy days

-Naps

-Clean water

The list goes on and on. We have really been trying to pay attention to the small things that we often take for granted. We know that there are parts of of the world, such as Ethiopia, that struggle for the very things that we waste. Thank you God for your grace and blessings in our lives!
