So sorry...

I must apologize for being gone for awhile(again). The sickness season has already reared it's ugly head in our household. Little man came down with some virus that absessed his tonsil. Yuck! So this has thrown my 30 days of Thanksgiving out of whack. So, I've decided to give you a list instead. Here goes...... I am thankful for:
*The fact that, this year, my dad will be celebrating Thanksgiving cancer free.
*That I live within 20 minutes of every single family member I have.
*That The Daddy and I are fortunate enough to have me be a stay-at-home mom to The Bug, Little Man and Bug-a-boo.
*That I have utilities to pay, because it means I have a home.
*That I have to pay over $2.00 for a gallon of gas, because it means I have a car.
*That my pants are a little too tight, because it means I have more than enough to eat.
*That I have such awesome friends (bloggy friends included =)).
*That I have a family that means the world to me.
*That God gave his one and only son to die on the cross FOR ME. So, that I can live with HIM forever in Paradise......
For all of these things and more I am grateful!

30 days of Thanksgiving...

I'm so sorry to have missed a few days. The Daddy was out of town and I was super busy. Life gets to be so crazy while be a single parent. ;)
So, for this joyous occasion of The Daddy's return I must say I am thankful that I am NOT a single parent. I can't imagine how you all, that are, do it. I've realized that I have come to rely on The Daddy so much for such little things. I know I have posted how thankful I am for him, but today I am thankful that he is home safely and that life can go back to being our kind of normal for awhile.
Thanks to all of you single parents out there that are working your tails off for your kiddos. I hope that God blesses you in abundance this season and always. It's a hard job and if you are doing it alone then you are truly amazing!!!
Hope you are having a blessed weekend!
With Love,

30 days of Thanksgiving...8 & 9

Today I am thankful for my sisters. They are there thru thick and thin. I am so blessed to have such amazing sisters.

This is my sweet oldest sister with little man and bug-a-boo....She's not only an awesome sister, she is a great aunt as well...

This is my younger sister and me last Christmas...Isn't she a cutie?!?!

I'm so lucky. Not every girl gets to have sisters that are also their best friends. We do alot together. I love them dearly! So thankful!

What about you, what are you thankful for today?
Happy Tuesday,

30 7

Today, I am thankful that we live in a country where we are allowed to practice freedom of religion. Can you imagine what it would be like...having to hide your light for Jesus. Today, as I sat in church giving worship to our AMAZING God, I couldn't help but think of those that have learned about our Lord and aren't allowed to even mention his name let alone praise and worship him. My heart breaks for them. Especially knowing there are so many that just CHOOSE not to worship him in our country. My prayer goes out to them as well.
Thank you God for loving me and blessing me with your mercy and grace. For this I am FOREVER thankful!

Today I am thankful for my family. My in-laws are AMAZING and my parents are GREAT as well. I have been blessed beyond measure. They are all the kind of people that are there for you whenever you need them... no matter what. Just wonderful people with alot of love to give. I'm so lucky to be one to receive it.

Giving Thanks....Day 4

Today I am thankful for my accountablity group. We are a small group of 6 women that meet once a month. They are some of the BEST women that you could ever meet. We have been thru LOTS together. Babies, divorce and even a kidney transplant. God has blessed me with some of the greatest friends a woman could ever have.

These pictures were taken quite awhile back (I've lost 40lbs since then). Also I don't have pictures of all of them. But here are a few ....

Feeling VERY blessed today. How about you? What are you thankful for today?

Happy Thursday!

Giving Thanks #3....

Today I am SO thankful for The Daddy! Any man can be a father but it takes a special man to be a daddy! I am so blessed to have a husband that LOVES being a daddy. He is there for our kiddos thru thick and thru thin.
It also takes a special man to be an amazing husband. This man is the greatest thing since sliced bread...just sayin'! I'm VERY lucky to have him. He is my soul mate, my true north. After 14 years of marriage he still makes my heart pitter patter...
I love you mister!

What are you thankful for today?

Happy Wednesday!

30 days of Thanksgiving....

I often feel I don't spend enough time counting my blessings. So, for this special month of thanks I have decided to spend the next 30 days posting about things of which I am thankful for. Note- These are in no special order...
Day one:
I am so thankful that God gave me a sweet girl! A daughter with whom I can share laughter and stories. Someone that makes my heart melt with just a smile. A creative and thoughtful little girl that makes my heart burst at the seams with pride. For this, today and everyday, I am thankful!
I Love you Bug! You are a bright ray of light on a cloudy day! YOU are my sunshine!

What are you thankful for today???

Have a blessed day,
