Thankful (Part 2)

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.” – 1 Chronicles 16:34

#5-My Family
When you were a kiddo did you ever have those thoughts, "Why did God chose to give me my family when some kids just plain have awful ones?" I had this thought a lot growing up. I am so thankful for my parents. How they have and still do bless my life. I stand firm in saying if not for them who knows where I would be. I sure do owe them and love them more than words could ever express.

Now for the rest of my family, They are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts. (half kidding! ha) I sure do love them. Growing up and even still we have a great time together. Not to mention how they have bless me and now bless my kiddos.

Then I got married and God once again has surprised me with a big blessing. What fun I have had with these guys. Not to mention that I have two special boys that I love so much. Did you really ever think you could love nieces/nephews so much?

I think one of the most important things in my life is my family. I hope each one of you knows what you mean to me. Each memory is so special...I could list many but the first that come to mind is beauty pageants, tea parties, Schlitterbahn trips, hunting/fishing, shopping trips, and many dinners are so dear to my heart. I love each of you!

No pictures....gasp!

A month to be thankful.

Don't you love November? I love fall. The cooler temps that bring hot chocolate and hot tea. Pumpkins and the smell of cider. Not to mention getting to spend time with family for Thanksgiving or the 2 important birthdays we celebrate. I love it!
I have so much to be thankful for. I thought I would try to do a post once a week (not daily like some adventurous souls) on what I am thankful for the most. I will start with 4:

#1 For sure Jesus. I think I get it so much more than ever what it truly means to be saved. What a blessing to have such Grace that only he can provide. I am so thankful for all Jesus has blessed me with. Sometimes I am completely blown away.

#2 Hubs. Oh how I am one lucky girl! I mean really lucky that God made him for me to share my life with. I love Jarred more with each passing day. I love how he loves his girls. There is no one I would rather share my life with or be the daddy to my children. I am AMAZED at the father he is.
#3 My Sweet Pea. Sometimes I look at her and wonder what I did to deserve her! I mean the other day I was buckling her in her car seat and she said "Jesus, thank for for my mommy!" Really! Who taught her this? I stopped and looked at her with tears running down my face. Then I heard, "What's wrong Mommy? You sad?" No Ava, I am so extremely happy.
#4 Emma Ruth. I can't wait to meet you! I can't wait to see how special you will be and how you will bless this family. After 5 pregnanices I am thankful for you hanging out with mommy. Can you believe we are almost 30 weeks. All I can say is "You grow girl!"

We had dinner at our besties and then headed out trick-or-treating. Yall, Ava was into this year. I mean so into it. After walking and walking we would ask if she was ready to stop. Her reply, "No, not yet." Her cupcake bag did get a little heavy but daddy was so sweet to help. She was so pooped after the end of the night she slept until 9. Score for mommy! She has enjoyed going through "My Bag" and eating all her candy today. Let's just say the sharing with daddy days may just be over. (Jarred, there is still hope for you with Emma for a few years!)

What a fun day with my family.
