This weeks blogging carnival question is: What are you thankful for in your life?
The first things that come to mind are my family. I have a wonderful, supporting husband and two great kids. I'm also thankful I have a home to live in with heat and air conditioning (we've had both go out over the past year so believe me when I say I'm thankful!!). My grandmother is amazing, she's done so much for me in my life I wouldn't be here without her. I'm a part of the best Church out there (ok ok I might be a bit bias but it really is great!), and through my church I found the family I've always wanted. Being a stay at home mom is not the easiest job, and if I'm honest some days I don't feel very thankful. But, there is no where else I would rather be. So thank you hunny for allowing me to stay home.
This might sound cliche but I'm thankful for the health of me and my family. I know a lot of others who are dealing with illness, injuries, and loss during this holiday season. A special thank you to my workout buddies and mamavation for being so supportive! I am able to buy healthy food, drink clean water, and workout. There are people all over the US and World who don't have those luxuries. A friend of mine just got back from a missions trip in South America and was telling me about the living situation, food supplies, etc. It amazed me just how much we can take for granted (working toilets, warm water just to name a few!). So thank you Lord that I live where I do! I could go on and on but I won't, just remember no matter how hard life can be there is always something to be thankful for.
