Thankful Nov 5th and 6th

I fell a day behind so I'll catch it up today. Hey, these things happen. :)

1. I'm thankful for amazing friends. The ones who know when you need a hug or a really good laugh. The ones you get into mischief with but know your secret is safe with them. The ones who have your back no matter if your right or wrong. The ones you call your sisters cause they are just to important to you to just be a friend. I love my White Snacks!

2. I am so thankful for date nights. We don't get many of them but when we do its so refreshing. I love having him all to myself. I can hug and cuddle him without a stock pile of kids coming in between us asking for their turn. I can give him kisses without the screams of "Oh gross!" We get to talk about adult things and catch up on what's been going on at work and with friends/family etc. It means so much to me to have this time with him. He is truely my best friend and love the moments when I get his full undivided attention, when he reminds me I mean the world to him too.

Thankful Nov 4th

I'm blogging what I'm thankful for for the month of November.

Today I'm thankful for my parents. The ones God gave me then the ones God blessed me with when I married my wonderful husband. Both have played a tremendous part in mine and my little families life.

My parents raised me to understand that when you are faithful to God, he will be faithful to you. They raised me to love myself. That other peoples opinion of you just doesn't matter and all that does is that you love yourself. They made me a strong, confident and independent woman. I am who I am because of them. My mom is gone now but I work hard to have her legacy live on in my kids.

Then the parents I'm blessed with. I have truely been blessed. They are two of the greatest people I've ever known. When I was younger they just took me in as though I was always part of the family. I have always been accepted by them and have always felt and known just what I mean to them. They have always been there for us when we needed them and even when we don't. My mother in law has been my supplemental mother since I lost mine 4 years ago. Without her, I don't think I would have been able to deal with it as well as I have. They are incredible grandparents to our babies and that just means the world.

Thank you to all of you for your unconditional love and support that just continues to shine in me and my life and all the lives you come in contact with!

Thankful Nov 3rd

I'm a couple days behind. Everyone has been posting on Facebook what they are most thankful for for the month of November. I thought I would challenge myself to blog it for 30 days. I have some catching up to do so here is three.

1. I'm thankful for the most important thing and that's to be saved by grace. Without God number one in my life things would have been so different and I don't think I would have been able to live through other thongs that I did. Plus I would never have known what true unconditional love is.

2. I'm thankful for my husband. He is such an incredible man. He works so hard to take care of family. He is incredibly talented when it comes to wood working. I love the kisses on the forehead that just makes the pains of the day melt away and make me feel so safe and loved.

3. Today I'm thankful for the "I love you mommys". Somedays the word mommy is driving me crazy cause they are wearing it out but at the end of the day, I'm so thankful for the title. When we first decided to have children, we didn't know if it was going to happen or not. We were told to not get our hopes up. I did more than that. I not only believed but I had faith. God showed me I would have children and I believed him! It took 2 years of fertility but we were blessed, then we were blessed 3 more times!! So I am so thankful for all the beautiful I love you mommies I get everyday.

So what are you thankful for?
