Counting my Blessings....

As we get closer and closer to Thanksgiving Day, I have been thinking more and more about all that I am grateful for. I feel extremely BLESSED and a day does not go by where I do not thank the Lord for all that he has given me.

First, I am thankful for my JOY, PEACE AND HAPPINESS! Last year, at this time, I could not say this!
Second, I am thankful for this wonderful man, I call my husband.

Not only is he my husband, he is my best friend! We have been married 14 years but this past year, we grew closer than we ever had been before. I truly love this man! Plus, his looks don't hurt either. hehe!
Third, I am thankful for each of these children God has placed in my hands.

They are truly a blessing in my life and every day bring me so much joy. Gotta admit...I do make some cute kids...huh?! hehe! I should probably give some credit to my husband too, huh?! hehe!

I am also so grateful for my wonderful parents. They have always believed in me! I thank them for the values they have instilled in me that I will try so very hard to instill in my children.

But not only are they the best parents, they are wonderful grandparents. My children ADORE these two people!

These three girls!!!

I am lucky to have these girls as my sisters! We truly are best friends. I know I can always count on them! Love ya, girls!

And last but not least....my husband's *crazy* family! I feel right at home with them. They treat me just like one of their own. I feel blessed to be part of their family.

I could go on forever! But these fall way up on the top of my list. God has truly been good to me! And all that I have is because of him.

Psalm 107:1

"Give thanks to the Lord."
