I'm thankful for the luxury of my kids having their own rooms. Let alone that we don't all share one room.
I'm thankful we have a grand room for living and entertaining, our first home with a dining room which we use a lot and adore, a guest room for visitors and friend that have lost track of time. :) I'm thankful we have electricity to use those space heaters, we have running water to hand wash those dishes, we have a roof to protect us. I am just thankful!
There are so many that would love to have this house or any house for that matter. I don't take for granted our house ever. I adore it, I love it and love the ones I'm blessed to share it with!

We had beautiful pictures taken at the cotton fields near our house! I just love how they turned out :) I would love to make this a yearly thing.
Our little ones are going up so fast. Every day I'm amazing by how much closer they are to meeting me eye level, what great helpers they are and how sweet their heart are for God.
I am so blessed to have a my little family. My husband and I have weathered so many storms over the years and what feels like a nonstop hurricane this year. There is no one I would love to be on this ride with. I just love that man!

I'm thankful for not being a hoarder. I'm thankful for the things we have. I'm thankful that we don't need every gadget out there. That I'm not one to try to keep up with the Jones, or even try to keep up with them.
We live in such a consumer driven society that it is easy to get swept away. I sometimes catch myself doing that. Especially during Christmas. I just love to send everyone and their dead Aunt presents. I love for them to know we are thinking about them. I love for my kids to have a full Christmas. Then I step back and think do we really need x and x. Do we need to strain and empty our accounts buying everyone a present. The answer is no folks.
I'm thankful that my kids don't expect every toy ever made under the tree. I'm thankful we don't have to cram our carts with things. I'm thankful to have the things we have and not desire more and more.

Last year in Kindergarten, his classroom teacher had to pretty much use other kids to decode what he was saying. My kid talks a mile a minute and his disability has him omit sounds and letters to just keep on talking. No idea where he gets his talkative ways ;)
This year has been much smoother sailing. I'm so happy the school offers a speech teacher free of charge. We couldn't afford one when he was little and his doctors all thought he would just out grow it and not to worry too much. My boy is one smart cookie and it's nice hearing he gets to show off his smarts rather than be behind because of his conversational disability.
Thank you to all the Speech Teachers out there!

I'm thankful for my husband of almost 8 years!!!
My wonderful man is my life rock. He knows how to keep me grounded and when to encourage. We haven't walked an easy path.
Our marriage has been tested in more ways then I ever thought possible but still every morning when I wake up before I'm out of bed I thank God for giving me, my perfect match.
He is the handsome man to our two kids and angel baby. They are so lucky to have him as their Dad!
I love you!
