Give Thanks

As Thursday approaches, I think our house is filled with more chaos than it has had in quite some time. With so many families to see tomorrow and places to be, my head is already spinning trying to figure out how it is all going to get done and that I will still have time to watch the TCU/UT game.   Reagan was supposed to be off from work today so that we could have some "us" time before the craziness of tomorrow begins, but work called and clients needed to see him so he is out and about today being busy and productive.  So while he is busy, I am at home reflecting and trying to get all things together before the holiday season begins.  To be honest,  I could not be more grateful for a quiet house and my sweet pup at my feet because I know tomorrow is going to be far from quiet and more craziness than I think I can even imagine.

So with Thanksgiving being tomorrow I thought I would take the time to write down what I am most thankful for... since that is what Thanksgiving is all about...

I am thankful for...

a husband who loves me unconditionally and supports all my crazy hopes and dreams

a family who loves me, laughs with me, cries with me, supports me, and can be silly just because

my God who died on the cross for me so that I could have life in Him.  this is one gift that I do not think I will ever be able to fully understand the greatness of.  I am in awe when I think about what Jesus did for me so that I could have life in Him. absolutely. amazing.

a job with kids that keeps me on my toes and makes me laugh every day. the mind of  a child is a wonderful thing

a place that we call our home. it has already been filled with so much laughter, love and friendship

a pup who loves me a greets me at the door with smiles and kisses everyday

my health. everyday is a precious gift and I am reminded of that often

my friends. without them I would not be the person I am today

I hope this holiday season you can take time to reflect and give thanks for all the Lord has given you.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.

Much love,
